Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost...(Review and GIVEAWAY!)

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Jordan, the genius and all around badass behind Jordandene clothing! We found each other on one of my favorite blogging groups, Female Geek Bloggers (join us, we're cool), and she so generously sent me this amazing tank to share with you guys.

Jordandene

"Not all those who wander are lost," is a quote that comes from the poem "All That is Gold Does Not Glitter," written by J.R.R. Tolkien for The Lord of the Rings.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Cool, right? One of my favorite things about this tank is that it expresses my geeky side in a more subtle way. It doesn't loudly shout HELLO, LORD OF THE RINGS FAN OVER HERE. If someone recognizes the quote, awesome, but even if they don't they'll still think it's an awesome tank (because it is). The next best thing about it is that it's so ridiculously soft. I kinda want to live in Jordandene clothes now, and am strongly considering getting her Harry Potter sweatshirt to live in all Winter.

Speaking of Harry Potter, Jordandene has an awesome variety of shirts from various fandoms to choose from, such as Game of Thrones, Doctor Who and Narnia! Whatever you're into, I'm sure she has something for you. I also think they make great gifts for that "Doctor Who fan that already has everything" type of friend ;)

    1. Me too! I don't really cook though so I'm not sure if I can justify getting one...but when I first saw them I imagined myself wearing one while baking cookies from scratch, hahah! Not a realistic vision but I can dream.

  2. That shirt is beautiful! I love that LOTR quote--I even have a pretty journal with it on the cover. Looking at Jordandene's site, I have to say that my absolute favorite thing is the Ravenclaw Apron though. It's just so neat!
