This is an outfit for a farm girl turned General of her kingdom’s armies. She just went to war to protect her family but then there was a prophecy and a magical sword and a missing princess she ended up rescuing and it just kept escalating from there. Midway through the war, the King and Queen held a ball (for morale or something) and this is what she wore, in case she had to spring into action. The knee braces are actually enchanted armor, probably.
[Image description: one full-body photo of a young woman (me) with dark red hair that is braided back and pinned up. I am wearing a green-grey shirt with a delicate red floral print on it. The shirt has a wide neck and wide sleeves. Over it, I have on a very short sleeveless dress made of layers of fringed black lace. It’s belted with a dark brown belt with a gold-and-copper buckle that looks like two shells. Under the dress, I’m wearing black leggings, with black knee braces strapped on over them. I also have on dark brown boots. I’m wearing dangly bronze earrings, red lipstick, and a gold necklace made up of small panels of metal joined together. As always, I have on my round, silver glasses.]
