I admit I am a bit slow with writing new posts (again). It’s the end of the school year and after an ‘in-between-year’ of ‘doing nothing’ I am suddenly right in the middle of studying for tests again! I’ll admit that I really had to get reused to studying, especially when I have to summarize over 170 pages of music history! But since I got accepted into the first year, I am not complaining. ^^
Anyway, back to business. As an in-between post I decided to do another Favourite Things again! This episode: roses.
Roses have always been very important to me. Not only because they’re gorgeous flowers and smell absolutely wonderfully, but I also like to call them my Name Flowers. My name, Rosalynn, means ‘as beautiful as a rose’ or simply ‘beautiful rose’ (or ‘tender horse’ in a different way of translating, but I am conveniently ignoring that). Now I am not saying I consider myself equally beautiful as a flower as perfect as a rose, but I do really love the meaning of my name. As a child, I used to make jokes about all the roses being my family, since my name was Rose too, but even back then I was very proud of my name.
When it comes to Lolita, I really like flower prints and of course especially the ones that contain roses. We might not have roses in our garden, but I am very happy to say that I at least have them in my closet! I own two of my favourite rose-printed Lolita dresses: Powder Rose and Lady Rose. I hope one day I can welcome Rose Toilette in my frilly wardrobe too!
