Welcome my little starlets to the one and only Wicked Wardrobe, your eyes and ears of the fashion world. Your eye in the sky as we go around the wizard world for the latest fashion and trendy accessories to brighten up any outfit. Tired of those boring school uniforms that make you blend in with the scenery? Do you want something that makes you stand out so that you can get your crush to finally notice you? This article is for you! School is back in session, and you better get your notes ready, because we are going full swing. Let’s face the cold, and sad truth that summer is officially over. Those warm sunny days on the beach have been replaced by gloomy rainy days that just won’t go away, not to mention the dull uniforms students have to wear to attend classes. All eyes dart toward the clock as they wait for 2 o’clock when those uniforms can be taken off in order to wear something trendy, but what do you wear in the meanwhile? Your best friend and fashion guru is here to help you make school uniforms less painful to wear, so get out your quill and ink and let’s begin!
To any witch or wizard that is in the know, up and coming stylist Brigitte Barlimule is the witch to see when you want an outfit that glimmers and shines like the stars above. Her most recent outfit is called “Caught in the Spotlight” A beautiful outfit which includes earrings, a necklace, and jewelry decorated with dragon fangs and opal, which could brighten a lovely witch with brown eyes. This outfit also includes a jumper which you can wear with the outfit, or tied on your waist to make the wearer sparkle. This outfit also includes beige shorts, an ivory top, and a bag that features Barlimule’s famous logo. The outfit all together costs about 15 Galleons and 3 sickles, or you can buy individual pieces for different prices. This outfit is good for any witch who wants to look trendy, the pieces altogether make anyone who wears it look fresh off the runway. There are limited supplies to this outfit, as you all know, and they will sell out very quickly. If you haven’t reserved the outfit by now, you are most likely not going to get one until she releases the outfit to the public. For those who happen to be a part of her fashion owl, “The Witch’s Fantasy”, you will be able to see this and many other outfits in the future. Tell them sent Allie sent you for a reduction in membership price!
Next up on our list is none other than Cauldron Couture, a personal favorite store of mine that tends not only to fashion, but also helps makes those dull old uniforms hip and new! They have come up with several accessories that will make this year easier for those that wish they had something to liven up their uniforms. For you students who like to collect and show off your house pride, there is a new charm bracelet that you can collect charms and share with friends. Each series has the house mascot, and several charms affiliated with the house. There are special charms you can trade that are specific for each set, so start collecting my little starlets! Also in the Hogwarts set are special pins that are enchanted with special photos and messages. This is great for your backpacks or dreary robes—so long as they remain appropriate—that allows you to say anything without the use of words. This would be perfect for those who want to say something but can’t, and there are special pins that allow you to add your own special message or picture. Who knows what the famous accessory maker will come up with next, but many of you know that I will keep an eye out. Show your Hogwarts pride my starlets, and let it sparkle!
For those who are seeking a bit of class to go with your everyday outfit, the famous bag designer Augustus Guiche has come up with a bag line with works for you. Not only does he make handbags that vary from stylish to formal, but he has released a line of school bags that I have seen some students wearing around the school. Not only are they durable for those classes that take an extra punch, but they are potion resistant in case you have a classmate who likes to spill their potion all over the place. They are charmed so that food and stains wipe away like magic, so this bag is built for whatever school brings your way. Be it rain, or snow, fire or water, Guiche bags are perfect for any occasion! Remember to shrink down your things before you place them in the bag because the only thing it is limited on is space. With the new school year full in swing, no doubt there are many stores preparing for young students, their pockets full of allowance and ready to strike a pose. Remember though that not all accessories are made equal, and only trust opinions of those who are in the know. If it looks fake, or seems off, it most likely is. In the next issue of Wicked Wardrobe, we will be talking more about how to liven up your appearance in school with fabulous hairstyles. Be fashionable my starlets, and remember to always stay wicked!
