Shopping for Celaena

July 8, 2013

As everyone is well aware, I adore the Throne of Glass series. Sarah J. Maas has created a world that I've fallen in love with, complete with a corrupt political scene, strongly drawn characters and a story filled with twists, turns and magic. I've pretty much shouted my love for the series all over Twitter and the blog (see 1 & 2 for proof!), so it's extra exciting for me to be able to announce that I'm one of the ambassadors for Throne of Glass. What does this mean exactly? Well, I'll be sharing exclusive content and hosting a few giveaways for Throne of Glass and its sequel Crown of Midnight for the next few months! It's going to be a grand ol' time, as I get to basically gush about the series, the characters and Sarah herself.

Before I move on to today's post, why don't you check out my review of Throne of Glass and the Throne of Glass novellas? I've also got the book trailers for Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight!

For today's kick-off, I was inspired by how much Celaena loves dressing up. It's often mentioned in the books how, despite being this kick-ass assassin, she does enjoy wearing pretty things! The fact that she loves dressing up and shopping really endears her to me, so I thought I'd pick out a few things that I think she'd totally wear. Obviously, they're all dresses!

This pretty mint green dress, with the pearls on the color and the lace on the top, would suit Celaena's girly tastes perfectly. (Source: Go Get 'Em, Pearl dress)

Celaena gets the chance to attend a party or two while she's in the castle, and this subtly lavender-pink frock would be perfect for those occasions. As always, there's a bit of sparkle in there! (Source: Walking on Aria dress)

When you're going to head on out for a night with the boy you love, you definitely want to look your best! This girly dress will definitely make Celaena feel special, while the blue will make her eyes pop! (Source: Party Performance Dress)

Be sure to stay tuned for exclusive content, fun posts and giveaways as we celebrate the Throne of Glass series!


  1. I WANT THE PARTY TIME DRESS!!! It would look oh so nice on me as Chaol and I are dancing the night away!

  2. Love! Especially the Party Time dress - which is so very Celaena! :)

  3. LOVE those dresses!! This is such a great idea! I LOVE fashion and clothes and am constantly trying to find a way to incorporate it into my blog! This is awesome! :)

  4. OMG, I love this. I can so see Celaena in that mint green dress. Girlfriend loves to get fancy.

  5. Great picks. I love the skirt part of the dresses! The mint dress is so cute. I would steal it from Celaena's closet. ;D

  6. LOVE THE DRESSES! I'd so wear ALL of them! I think I love the Party Time dress the most :)

  7. Love these Modcloth dresses-I spend way too much time on that site! I think my favorite is the Party Time one.

  8. Such a fun post! I could easily see Celaena in all of them (that's probably one of my favorite things about this book tbh, how she is this badass assassin who loves pretty dresses all the same. SO FUN!) and I think she'd rock them, of course.

  9. Is it real? That's awesome. These social deals stores were so great. I wish I was congratulating about that. All the information you have shared here is really good.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
