    This doesn’t really have anything to do with Harry Potter (just fashion in general), but as I started school this last month and I go to a school with uniforms, I though I’d post this so you could see how I would dress up a school uniform. In the bottom left corner, I put together an outfit that is pretty much my school uniform so you could see how I’d coordinate these accessories with my school’s colors.

  1. Necklaces: It might sound simple, but a cool necklace can make a boring school uniform look a lot more like a normal outfit. Just make sure that the colors in the necklace compliment the colors of your uniform.
  2. Scarves: If necklaces aren’t really your thing and your school’s dress code allows it, wear a scarf in the fall and/or winter. They come in lots of cool patterns and styles, and you’ll probably be able to find one that compliments your uniform.
  3. Earrings: Again, it might sound simple, but a quirky pair of earrings can really make a uniform interesting. If you find a really cool pair that goes with your uniform, pull your hair up and show them off!
  4. Bracelets: As far as bracelets go, I don’t recommend wearing metal ones. As you’re writing, typing, or just moving in general during the day, they’re going to hit things and make noise, which is annoying for a lot of people, especially if you’re taking a test. If you want to wear bracelets, I suggest wearing cord bracelets, like the ones I’ve shown here, or any other kind of leather or rubber wristband that won’t make any noise.
  5. Rings: Rings are always a good way to accessorize if you don’t like having something around your neck. Wear a ton, wear one, it’s really up to you! Like I said before with the necklaces: make sure the metals and gem colors go with the colors of your uniform!
  6. Headbands: Headbands are a great way to accessorize, while also keeping your hair out of your face. The kinds of headbands I used are all thick elastic head wrap types, but that’s just my preference. You could really use any kind you want, be it a thin elastic one, thick elastic one, plastic one, metal one, its really up to you!

    The biggest tip I can give you is to make sure whatever accessories you choose go with the colors and/or patterns of your school uniform! If they don’t, it’s going to clash and won’t look very good!

rly i encourage all the girls of colour, esp black girls, to invade creative spaces that are occupied by white women. the exclusion of girls of colour in creative spaces is a conscious decision, dont walk around believing that it’s just a coincidence. if u see only white girls on a staff page, know there’s a reason behind that. and dont let that shit thrive. let ppl kno u r alive.

Okay, people I converse with on the internet, I need some help. 

I write for this online law magazine called Keep Calm Talk Law (yeah, yeah I know) which is a little editorial by law students for law students and we need more publicity. We all write really good articles on a variety of different topics so it’s worth giving us a chance. 

If anyone here is interested in law (or knows anyone who is) and could push this along that would be swell. 

Here’s an example - it’s an article about the blanket ban in Europe on Muslim women wearing the burka.

OH GOD LESS VERSUS FEWER THANK YOU FOR ACKNOWLEDGING MY PERSONAL GRAMMATICAL VENDETTA.

By accident. On purpose. Never on accident.

ALSO, ‘amount’ and ‘number’ follow the same rules as ‘less’ and ‘fewer’, respectively. it’s not an ‘amount’ of people, it’s a number of people; by contrast, it IS an ‘amount of water’, etc.

EVERYDAY THE SAME DREAM is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour. You are a faceless, unnamed man going about his business. The game has alternatives endings. Will you end up going to work and working in a little cubicle like every day, or will you take another route and do something different for once?

A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews
