Here, There Be Dragons

Inspired by a hat, gifted to me by a guest at the Style Crone's birthday party, and the upcoming Season Three of Game of Thrones

One of the guests at Judith's birthday party generously gifted me with this glorious felt hat, made in Nepal.  I wasn't sure how to style it, as it was A LOT OF HAT, but I thought that if I could carry off the one I wore to the party, I could manage this one too.   It's the closest that I'll ever come to having long hair, and more than once I found myself tossing the felt "dreadlocks" over my shoulder.  The outfit suggested I should be ruling my own tribe of strong, sexy and super cool Amazon women (who would all have their own blogs, of course).

Every Warrior Queen needs a spear, or some other sharp pointy thing with which to threaten her enemies.  I definitely need to get Sarah Misfit to give me some photoshop lessons.  At least I had what I thought was a good threatening outfit that incorporated some leather, fur (faux) and skull patterned knee socks. 

...and speaking of Warrior Queens, I'm really hoping that the producers of Game of Thrones decide that Daenerys (see photo above) needs an older sidekick, as I think I would be perfect for the role.  After all, any woman who can survive being married to Khal Drogo, is immune to flames, and has three pet dragons is more than ok in my book, and I think we could learn a thing or two from each other.

I think we should all have our own little dragon, don't you?  Especially one that coordinates with our outfit.

I'm wearing:
felt hat - gift 
leather dress from Mesh Consignment boutique
skull patterned socks - London Rock Shop
Neosens Ankle boots - From Mars
faux fur coat ("the Chinchilla") - Lovesick

Are any of you watching Game of Thrones?  Who is your favourite character?

  3. I'll skip right past the GOT references (I've never seen it) and just comment on the very cool outfit. The hat is amazing - as you said, that's a lot of hat! I'm most taken with the boots - I love that shape of heel. The whole outfit works so well, and your photo with the dragon is perfect!

  8. Another rocking outfit. The dragon is a nice touch. I don't watch GOT ( it's on one of those premium channels) but I do watch The Vikings on the History Channel. A mini series about Vikings, sort of like Sons Of Anarchy with boats.

  10. You look fabulous! Love the hat.

    My fave is Tyrion but Arya is pretty great too. I hated the books and quit halfway through book 2 but will continue to watch the series - if I don't get too annoyed with it all. I so want to smack some people...

  13. Well, cha-zam! What a great outfit. It takes a woman of style and substance to wear that hat-- and socks and carry a spear. So, in other words, that would be you. Don't know this game, and am not really into science fiction, but the images are great.

    Much love from England,

  19. Ooh yes, Shelley, Fierce Warrior Woman of the North! We should all have little dragons as our familiars, I think! That hat is crazy and looks crazily good on you, as does that amazing leather dress. Accessory du jour? A spear, of course! xxxxx
