Goodbye to Harry: July 15th, 2011

Event: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2), dinner w/friends at Thainamite, Bastille Days, drinks

Outfit: One-shouldered dress: The Limited; Necklace: Stella & Dot; Sandals: Fred Boutique; Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: London, 2003 (Left)/Dublin, 2010 (Right)

Had to let Harry Potter join me on the balcony for Friday’s photos. Along with these UK editions, I also have the first book in Italian and Spanish. While I would have no chance of reading them, I wish I had bought an HP in every country. Grow, Potter collection, GROW. Adam and I both own a complete set of the books (+ extras), so most of mine are chillin’ at my parents’ for now.

We went to see HP with a group of friends at a theater I’ve never been to——awesome reserved seats, free popcorn, and I couldn’t resist ordering a beer (something about booze + HP amused me).  Will definitely see any “big” movies this way in the future; felt like VIP movie-going! It’s a given that I had issues with some parts of the movie (I just never get why they change certain things), but overall it was a great end to the series. I certainly teared up.

After the movie we all went to Thainamite (obsessed with their yellow curry!) and then hit up Bastille Days to enjoy some live music and browsing. Then Mindy suggested pina coladas (I like the way she thinks!) followed by an evening of board games. Friday nights have been going until 3am+ lately—not my usual bedtime!

Don’t Ginessa’s plants make these photos prettier? We might need to buy some flowers…

  1. Harry Potter in every language, what a good idea! I wasn’t planning on going to see the new HP but just realised that Neville Longbottom got really hot, so looks like I’m dragging my boyfriend along.

  2. I was a little disappointed in some things, too, but sadly no one asked my opinion. Wah wah. 😉

  3. I love that you have the British copies too! I didn’t actually read them till I moved to Scotland, but I love that I have a story about them to tell my own children someday.

    Oh, and I agree on the changing of some things in the film, but really, overall, I think it was an excellent conclusion.

  4. Love the assymetry with the one shoulder dress and bib necklace. So cool you have the HP books in other languages. Movies where they serve beer and snacks are the best!
