Hallow-Weekly Feature: Red Rose

In the spirit of dressing up for Halloween, I’ve decided to come up with a weekly feature highlighting awesome outfits worn by female movie characters this month.  Every Friday, this October, I’ll showcase one outfit that would be perfect for recreating for a Halloween party (or really anytime at all, but I just like to use Halloween as yet another excuse to dress up).

Unfortunately, this isn’t a list of the most iconic costumes in film, but it will include some well-known outfits.

Today’s outfit:  Hermione’s red dress from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:  Part 1 (as worn by Emma Watson).

No delicate flower.

The color!  The mini ruffles!  What’s not to love about this feminine frock?   Apparently, British designer Jenny Packham, who designed this dress, wanted to reflect the real-life fashion sense of Emma Watson.  This look totally works for a more mature Hermione and gives fashionistas an outfit to admire on the silver screen.  I love how her dress reminds me of a beautiful bouquet of roses–it’s so pretty!

So, if you’re looking for a stunning way to stand out, dress your best in a frilly red dress and accessorize with a purple beaded bag that carries (almost) everything.

What do I love more than great clothes?  Great music (note:  these loves are different from the love that I have for the people in my life in case you were wondering where my priorities were).  I’m currently playing in my car Little Anchor’s CD, Sunland.  It’s a great CD to listen to as you’re driving on a sunny, fall day (full disclosure:  the lead singer is an in-law, but I am really digging their music).

I wanted to have fun with my outfit by matching my clothes to the colors on the tote bag.  Usually, I’ll match my bags to my clothes, but the logo on the bag inspired me to come up with an outfit that I wouldn’t have originally worn.  I chose a navy-blue striped blouse with a sweater vest and decided to wear my favorite pants for the flowy comfort.  I added a pair of vintage of boots to top off the look.

This outfit was perfect for playing around and taking pictures:

A fun way to spend a beautiful afternoon!
