For example, did you know that I have to buy robes? Like, I have to wear black robes to events like matriculation and exams.
I HAVE TO WEAR ROBES TO SCHOOL. I AM BASICALLY GOING TO HOGWARTS.
And yes, I have now turned into that annoying American girl who will compare everything to Harry Potter. Sick of me yet? Too late? Oh well. Might as well embrace it.
Besides school robes, I have to get fancy dresses for special events. Formal halls, balls, things like that.
I've been on the hunt for the perfect dress. Because it's not every day a girl gets to go to an Oxford formal hall.
And I found the dress the other day.
It's perfect. It's golden-brown, classy, unique, feels like silk, but it is machine washable, baby.
[Update: Here is the dress, since I neglected to post a picture of it last night. I may or may not be wearing it to church today. Because it's a new dress. And it's a new dress that makes me feel pretty. So even though there is no special occasion, I'm wearing the dress. Ha.]
I feel like a Roman empress in it.
Or like Hermione Granger going to the Yule Ball. Except my dress is gold instead of lilac.
So, like I said.
This is year 4 at Hogwarts.
I am Hermione Granger.
AND I AM GOING TO THE YULE BALL.
Could life get any cooler?
