Flora – Roses

Flora - Roses I

Loveliest of lovely things are they
On earth that soonest pass away.
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.

~ William C. Bryant

January is drawing to a close, closing another chapter in this winter season and drawing closer to spring. February brings with it two holidays – one a celebration of love, the other a festival of flair. I inadvertently tied the two together while donning a few sets of wearable bouquets.  But sometiems wondrous things grow where you least expect them.

The Roses by December look like a real bikini of blossoms, thanks to the creator using different sized buds, varying where the red and white hues appeared, and adding sprigs of leaf in spots. To compliment the outfit, I adorned myself with the “Varda” jewelry and mask set (setting the petals to different slightly shades to continue the ‘pattern’), as well as a pair of thorns and entangled heels. Even with all this on, a lot of flesh remained exposed, so I choose a tanned, tattooed skin to connect all the pieces. The look creates a soft, mysterious ambiance, much like how love can be.
