{outfit} Diagon Alley by Night

This outfit was from the most magical evening of my life!  The Wednesday of our trip there was a red carpet event followed by a "reception" in the new Diagon Alley park at Universal.  I say reception, but it was more like WELCOME, GO HAVE FUN!  Sadly we weren't allowed to take our cameras into the event so all my outfit photos are from iPhones.  We were inside the park from around 9pm until almost 1am and didn't want to leave!

We got to go into Gringotts Bank (and almost rode the new ride, but it was having technical difficulties) and then we rode the Hogwarts Express to Hogsmeade (the other Harry Potter park at Universal) and back again!

Dress: Carven (Yoox), Sandals: Manolo Blahnik (Roundabout Resale)


Standing in heels for over 7 hours was probably not the best idea, so I took off my shoes right at the end of the night because I could barely walk.  So I get to say I walked on the cobblestone/brick floors of Diagon Alley!  The ground was probably as clean as it will ever be since thousands of people haven't tramped through it.

  1. So fun you got to go there before anyone else, and yeah, running around in heels all day is never as fun as you imagine... things stop being so glamorous at around hour four...
