This Scale Top from Akira inspired me to do a post about my all time favorite TV and book series, Game of Thrones. I saw this top and immediately had to have it, it's very wearable for everyday, but also avant garde and interesting. Of course, one of my favorite characters from the series is Khaleesi AKA Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, etc. and Mother of Dragons. Since the season seven trailer has recently been released, the timing of this top entering my wardrobe was perfect. The black scales hinted I could only be the biggest and baddest of Dany's dragons; the one and only Drogon.
The Look: Drogon is a fierce black and red dragon, often referred to as a winged shadow. He is scary and wildly untamed. Although this look is inspired by fantasy it is completely wearable for everyday. I love how the detail is exciting, but not overwhelming, so you can sit through the work day without distracting everyone around you. It's also a great look for weekends and evenings out. You can pair the top with a skirt, jeans, dressy shorts, virtually anything and it will go. Unlike the dragon, you won't scare anyone away. I paired the scale top with maroon pants and some stiletto booties. My favorite part is the complete badass vibe of it, it's definitely an edgy top that makes you look powerful, not unapproachable.
The Show: Game of Thrones is more than just my favorite show, it's my life. Getting lost in this fantasy world with dozens of characters and plot twists and dragons has truly consumed my existence. Without rambling on and on about how I think HBO can keep the show going on forever to keep me breathing, let's talk about what needs to happen this season.
- Epic Sea Battle: Euron Greyjoy is on his way to Dany, Dany's on her way to Westeros, they just have to meet up. Or will Daario betray her when Euron arrives in Mereen and lead him to attack her fleet from behind?
- Jaime turns on Cersei: Ever since Jaime met Brienne of Tarth, we saw another side of him. He is kind and much more than just a kingslayer. The look he gave Cersei at the end of season six has me feeling like he finally sees her for what she really is.
- Jon Snow learns his true parentage. It's only a matter of episodes from when we found out until he has to right? It's a simple TV algorithm.
Eventually: I could go on forever about my season seven predictions, but this isn't a fan fiction site, so I'll leave you with this, I had this thought recently and I don't see any other way of things working out. Eventually, Tyrion has to die in the end. As much as it pains me to admit it, it has to happen. If we've learned anything about this world, kinslaying is a serious crime in the eyes of gods and men, worse than kingslaying. Tyrion killed his father with no reason other than selfish motive. Sure, Tywin wasn't a good person, but at least the intent of Jaime's kingslaying was to prevent people from being burned alive. Thoughts? Let me know below!
