Take Me to Hogwarts with The Five15


I don't know if I've mentioned it much on the Internet, but my love for Harry Potter runs deep. It was the first book that really got me into reading, and I started the series when I was 8, not long after The Goblet of Fire came out. My grandma had gotten me the first book for my birthday, and I was devastated because I was sure that I was going to get a Barbie. I barely glanced it at first until my parents told me that I had to read some of it before I could watch TV. Funny how what first felt like a punishment turned into a lifelong love. It didn't take long for me to get into The Sorcerer's Stone and soon, I was pouring over the books. I got almost my entire family to start reading them and when a new one would come out, we would pre-order it and wait in line at Border's for the release. When we got a new book, I would do everything I could not to put it down (even reading through dinner) so I could finish it as fast possible. The readings were followed by re-readings, and naturally I was just as into the movies. I actually just reread them last year for the first time in years, and it was just as exciting as the first few times. 

All of this a longwinded way of saying that, naturally, I couldn't get over how great this raglan from The Five15 was when I first saw it. I found Angie on Instagram probably about a year ago or so, and we quickly became virtual friends. Her art is SO impressive, and I'm constantly waiting to see what she comes out with next. Not only does she share my love of certain fandoms (I have another post coming this week), but she also shares my passion for feminism and advocates for women, equality, the LGBTQA community, and more. A great amount of her art directly supports these groups, and a portion of the proceeds from all of her sales goes toward organizations that support women. Obviously I jumped at the chance to collab with her, especially because of how amazing this shirt is.  The illustrations are the cutest, and it's comfy as hell. I love dressing up T-shirts, and this one was way too much fun to style. 


Obviously, I went the Luna Lovegood route here. For most of my life, I said I was a Hufflepuff, but in the last couple of years, I've realized that I'm definitely more of a Ravenclaw. I tend to be more serious and ambitious, appreciate my alone time, and always have a desire to learn and be curious. Of course, I still like to think I have that Hufflepuff sweetness to me. When it comes down to it, I think we all have a mix of multiple houses in us.

  1. Oh dear- this post certainly makes me feel my age (which, I mean, I knew I was a lot older than you, but this really hammers that home). I was the same age as Harry in each book as they came out (well, until the books starting taking more than a year to come out, obviously). So...I was in high school the year you discovered Harry Potter :D

    Your photos (and her art) are so, so, so delighful!
