I grew up in a home full of floral, or more specifically roses. My mum had every inch of the house filled with rose patterns. Our couches, pillows, the wallpaper, the carpet..yes the carpet!! I was so invaded by rose floral that I promised myself I would never own a single floral thing. It was an impossible promise to keep though, I didn't appreciate the beauty and charm of it when I was younger.

Beautiful images via endless inspirations. (unsure of photographer credits, pls let me know if you recognise any)

  2. haha, I was the same. A deep loathing for floral prints as a result of my childhood, I swore I'd never wear anything floral. Now the majority of my wardrobe is posy-prints.
    Sorry, Mum.

  15. I have that top photo on file, too, titled something like 'teacup dress'. Doesn't it really look like an inverted porcelain cup?

    (Sadly, I'm also missing a photo credit.)
