Every rose has its thorn

It's true. Every rose has its thorn.  Poison couldn't have said it better.

We all want to believe in fairy tales and happy endings. But in truth, we don't live in storybooks. There won't always be a knight on a white horse to rescue us at the end of the story-- and in reality, the story doesn't end after the knight comes anyway. It continues and maybe after that beautiful fairytale rescue, you and your knight might face other challenges and there is no assurance that the next time will end as sweetly as before.
The outfit takes inspiration from the song. It's sweet and girly like a rose-- but literally adorned by "dark" representations.
"I know I could have saved a love that night
If I'd known what to say
Instead of makin' love
We both made our separate ways

I especially dedicate this post to all the girls who wished for a fairytale but found themselves trapped in a nightmare.

" I hear you found somebody new
and that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife"

Love is a battle. And I plan to go on fighting. To the end.
