I didn't put this outfit together with the intention of showing Hufflepuff pride, but I couldn't stop thinking about it all day. Go Badgers! (It just occurred to me that black and yellow are also some football team's colors -- the Steelers? -- but you can tell I'm more of a Harry Potter person than a football person.)
This snake bracelet is one of my favorite pieces. I've had it forever. The faux-emerald eyes fell out long ago (maybe I'll replace them sometime), and I can no longer remember where the damn thing came from, but I love it.
I've been pretty obsessed with the idea of a snake-shaped bracelet ever since I saw Shakespeare in Love when it first came out. There's a snake bracelet in it, and a woman puts a piece of paper with Shakespeare's name on it inside the snakes mouth to cast a love spell. I thought that was so cool. Lately, I've been obsessed with this one from Sense of Fashion.
