Poor Sansa can’t catch a break. When we met Sansa she was a fool of a girl, and one of my least favorite characters. She preferred knights on white horses to sword fighting, unlike our hero Arya, and she dreamt of pretty dresses and a handsome princes. Sadly, she’s been dealt nothing but tragedy since her arrival in King’s Landing. She got a prince, and pretty dresses, but she’s lost her family and her innocence. This week, we saw Sansa forced to marry Tyrion. The best Lannister, sure, but still a Lannister. And no fate she would have chosen for herself.
I think Sansa would have embraced a girly, structured look if she were having more fun than we saw her have this week. I think this coloring would look lovely with her auburn hair.
And if she were feeling a little feistier? Like if someone forced her to get married again? Well her cape dress here shows some serious attitude and evokes her wedding cape. And with a rock on her hand like that, who needs a wedding ring.
I’ve also made outfits inspired by Jaime, Arya, Margaery, Daenerys, Brienne, and Jon Snow. Who’s your favorite?
Last night was a round-up of sorts, and maybe even a let down from the action-packed past few weeks. But then Brienne fought a bear. A freaking bear. In a dress. So because she fought a bear and kept her composure under fear of death and humiliation, she definitely wins this episode. (Jaime comes in a close second solely for the line “half a million” when the maester pointedly asked how many people he’s saved in his lifetime.)
We know Brienne is more comfortable in armor than anything, but we can still pay homage to our friend and get dressed for the city streets instead of a medieval battle.
Metallic, of course. And she’d probably toughen up a sweet dress with a leather jacket. Brienne is no Cinderella and certainly needs no Prince Charming, so her slippers aren’t quite glass. Her earrings hint at her home, the Sapphire Island, where the water is a beautiful blue.
In a more casual setting, we can give a shout out to Brienne with a metallic sheen and a tough wrist cuff reminiscent of her armor. I’d like to think Brienne is coming to her own and would proudly be that tall girl wearing heels. She knows she’s a bad B.

I think we can all agree mostly everyone on Game of Thrones right now is losing. The Lannisters are down a hand and up two unwanted fiances. The Starks are all over the map, losing battles and friends. So I think Jon wins this week because he made it up and over a 700-foot wall made out of ice. Did you guys see that climb? Holy wow.
Jon has joined the Night’s Watch, where the men are nicknamed crows and wear all black. They have to bundle up because, well, it’s cold up there and they live on a giant block of ice. If we were to take Jon’s style and apply it to now, I think it would look something like this.
A leather dress, feather coat, and a bracelet decorated with skulls? Seems like a pretty accurate representation of the Night’s Watch to me. But if you have to go out and not look like a super awesome, slightly trashy grunge heiress, maybe you’d try something like this.

If you don’t think Daenerys won Game of Thrones last night, you weren’t watching the same show I was.
Her strength, beauty and general badass-ness totally came through last night when she showed some slavers what was what. Dany is a gorgeous woman, and she can dress for every occasion. We’ve seen her in lovely light flowy dresses and horse-riding warrior gear. She’s been a pretty practical in her wardrobe lately, but what else could we expect from someone who’s planning more than one uprising?
I think Dany today would be pretty fierce. Here we have her in skinny jeans and stilettos with a jacket whose structure resembles her structured dresses as of late.
But she also knows how to impress by being softer and elegant. I’d like to be more like Dany–in personality and in style, I think.

Well Jaime definitely didn’t this week’s episode of Game of Thrones. In fact, he lost quite a bit. But he lost the episode in such a spectacularly gruesome fashion that his moments stuck out to me the most.
Jaime spends most of his time in his white cloak and armor (or in mud when he’s a prisoner), but we can take cues from Jaime and take it with us to the office.
Lannister colors are red and gold, which look smashing against a bright white. It’s a crisp, clean and modern color combo, and you can look fresh but professional in a red pencil skirt. Throw on a bangle that looks like an arrow as a shout out to Jaime’s skills with weapons. And, of course, just because [SPOILER] Jaime doesn’t have his sword hand anymore doesn’t mean we can’t honor what it once was in a cheeky necklace from Catbird.
And for a more casual night out? White and gold, just like Jaime’s kingsguard gear, dress up a pair of jeans so you’re ready to hit the town.
I’m so glad to be back in the TV land of Game of Thrones. George R.R. Martin has created a beautiful and dense world, full of intrigue and crisscrossing relationships. And the sets and dragons on the show are certainly nothing to sneeze at. Last night was the first episode of the third season on this HBO hit.
Margaery won the episode with her manipulative schmoozing at the orphanage and the dinner table. What to wear when having dinner with your hopefully future husband (and current psycho king) and his powerful and beautiful mother? Lets take a cue from Margaery and dress to our assets.
Margaery knows she’s beautiful, and she knows how to play that up. The cut outs are perfect. A flash of skin can be sexy and classy. It shows her confidence and beauty without trying too hard or going overboard. Understated kingdom-stealing with a positive, no-nonsense attitude is what we’re going for here. In real life, that might translate to something like this.
You are bringing your A game if you pair a cut out top with silver pumps, that’s for sure. However, if you want to make a good impression on your maybe future mother in law and aren’t trying to steal the crown from her cold, jewel-adorned fingers, I’d recommend showing a little less skin, but still showing off a little bit of a fun. Maybe like this.
Whether you want to show off your sweet or sassy side, I bet Margaery has a lot to teach us. Let’s check in again on our favorite wannabe kings and queens next week?
