The Necessity of Roses


One may live without bread, not without roses. ~ Jean Richepin


Give Mami Jewell a bouquet of roses and she doesn’t just put them in a vase of water—she creates a full bloom of a dress, including roses trailing down the body and a flounce of flowered lace. She swaddles this lovely bouquet in her signature satin textures, creating a gown that is asymmetrical and elegant.


The blush of a beautiful skin is the gilding on the rose, this one from Tricky Boucher. I opted for a neutral lip to allow the beauty of the dress and my deep green eyes from Ikon Innovia to show through. I love this updo from Truth Hawks with it’s dramatic waves—so sexy.


“Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.”
