Lle quena i'lambe tel' Eldalie? [OOTD]

by - August 28, 2016

 My auburn hair says "Ñoldor" ("Deep Elves"), but my brown-and-green outfit says "Nandor" ("Wood-elves"). I think that, on this one occasion, I will side with a certain non-canonical Mirkwood elf of flaming red hair from the film adaptations of The Hobbit.

The dress you see, a gift from my beloved Gabriella, was simply begging for a waist belt, and those who like showing some leg can feel free to undo a few buttons from the bottom, as I have. However, it also looks good when worn entirely by itself (as the gorgeous Mirella demonstrates here). In the chilly autumn days, I would add a faux leather jacket (black, to match the shoes) and a pair of brown tights to keep my legs from getting chilly.

The necklace I'm wearing is also a gift - one from the mermaids inhabiting the faraway Caribbean Islands. I've yet to see their tropical forests, so unlike the ones I'm used to here, but their hitherto unfamiliar energy still lingers within these stones. One of them, tiger's eye, is a strong stone for protection. It is known to enhance courage and physical strength, as well as to promote balance. As for lava rock, the other type, it is essentially the result of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. Logic and paradoxes aside, the strength of earth and the raw passion of fire make for one fine amulet of strength and courage. All in all, a necklace fit for wearing into battle, and helpful during times of drastic change in life.

With all this in mind, the only thing left for you to do is get your hair out of the way, grab your bow and arrows, and venture out in search of danger and adventure. Mayhaps you will chance upon a just king in need of a champion, or a valiant shieldmaiden to match your skill in battle. Regardless of what you might come across on your way, always carry with yourself the words of J. R. R. Tolkien: Not all those who wander are lost.

  1. Although my first thought was " just like an elf through the forest", the more time I spent looking at the photos ( no not long enough to be creepy ) the more I had this Celt warrior ( https://www.google.com.tr/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com%2F564x%2F59%2F16%2F25%2F59162565a29ce3d71dd761bdb033afcc.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.com%2Fpin%2F262405115763967219%2F&docid=sA49nFQ9Sx6TsM&tbnid=7QIJL02_AlmqyM%3A&w=469&h=750&bih=938&biw=1680&ved=0ahUKEwiTuvrs-ubOAhWDvRQKHaAUDEgQMwgaKAAwAA&iact=mrc&uact=8#h=750&w=469 ) came to my mind with all these " fierce and courage" focus of your amulet ;)
    wandering and getting lost are two symbols, widely used in fantasy genre so I guess the forest theme fits right in for this kind of attire and literature , I do not know if you have heard it or not but I like the saying ; in order to explore somewhere you have to get lost first. SO, since I had this in my mind I ma not afraid of getting lost anymore because everytime you get lost you explore something/somewhere new. for example the last time I got lost physically I found the location of a great street food vendor selling delicious delicious sandwhiches and when I got lost in my way of life I explored a lesser known part of my personality which is I liked asking for help more than I had known before and asking for help did not make me feel like a helpless kid at the mercy of others. Anyway, I should not be making this about mr. after all this is your blog.
    Well done , a brilliant piece of writing again. And, as always, looking for more from you ;)
