Game of Luck

Lucky Brand is one of my favorite stores for jewelry because they have such a variety —and I’m a sucker for their signature turquoise. Over the years I’ve gathered quite the collection of earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets from Lucky Brand, and while looking through them I’ve noticed that some pieces could very well be worn by certain characters on Game of Thrones.

Starting on the left, this bronze necklace reminded me of House Tyrell with its floral and romantic characteristics. Each of the designs is reminiscent of a garden, which would suit the southern-dwelling Tyrell’s. I’ve had this necklace for about three years so it’s become a little dull and discolored, but with a little cleaning it could definitely be worn on Margaery or any other Lady of House Tyrell.

Moving to the right, my immediate reaction was that this necklace could be worn by Cersei Lannister. It just has that Lannister appeal to it because it’s bright gold and it also resembles chain male. It makes sense that it would be worn by a Lannister because this house has fought in many battles, and it also has an intimidating and powerful look to it.

I got these earrings from Lucky Brand a little more than two years ago and they look like they could be from Qarth. Qarth is a unique city across the Narrow Sea, a paradise in the middle of a desert. The turquoise coloring reminds me of Dany’s dress that she wore in Qarth (as discussed here). If the silver in these earrings were gold instead, they would be perfect to wear with her outfit. Thanks to my sister for modeling, the picture on the right provides better lighting and a better idea of what the color looks like.

I’ve hardly touched on the Dothraki clan in this blog, and seeing this bracelet made me regret it. The Dothraki are unlike any House or family in the show because they are horse lords and known as savages and brutes. However, they have such a different lifestyle than the proper Lords and Ladies of Westeros because they are nomadic and constantly roam on their horses. Because of the arid climate across the Narrow Sea, wearing heavy silk, satin or velvet is useless. The Dothraki wear cloth and leather that is suitable to constantly riding horses and moving through rocky dirt and rugged terrain. This Lucky Brand bracelet reminded me of this clan because of its metalwork, leather adjustable cords and utilitarian feel; it is decorative, yet practical.

Daenerys Targaryen’s Qartheen Gown

This blue flowy gown that Daenerys (Dany) wore in Qarth during Season 2 has become an iconic piece of clothing from Game of Thrones. It showcases the wealth and power of Qarth through the fine fabric and gold embellishments, but also the mystery surrounding the city with its ethereal and whimsical look.

This dress conveys the paradise that Qarth was to Dany and her Dothraki followers because without the city they would have perished in the Red Waste. However, the metal caging around the waist and shoulders, while ornate and delicate, also convey the message of danger. It possibly foreshadows her being trapped and chained in the House of the Undying after finding her dragons.

The blue reflects the ocean that Qarth so much relies on with its trading ships and its port. Qarth was made into such a wealthy city through trading and this is shown by the the people’s elegant and expensive looking clothing and jewelry. All of the people in this city wear the finest fabrics with gold threading, beading and embroidery which truly displays the magnificence of this city on the sea.

Marchesa was a designer that instantly came to mind because, like the fashions in Qarth, their designs are extremely ornate and ethereal. Here are some Marchesa looks inspired by Qarth and Dany’s gown:

The two gowns on the left are more simplistic than their couture counterparts, but it was difficult to leave them out. All of the above Marchesa creations exemplify Qarth and accurately depict the vividness and detail of Dany’s dress.
