“ Lickorish Latex / clip on rose accessory / available in red, blue and black. „
I love dressing up in a gothic or burlesque style when I go out, and the easiest way to alter an outfit is with great accessories. I found these latex roses and fell in love - not only are they beautiful but they're versatile as well! You can buy them online from www.lickorishlatex.com and each one costs £6.45.
Lickorish Latex say: "This is ONE beautiful large latex rose head mounted on a suspender-type clip to easily embellish any outfit!
Clip one on to a sleeve or glove end, dress strap, shoe strap (as pictured), suspender top...
This rose can be attached to any material you could clip a suspender-type clip on to, or any strap you could clip it around!
Available in any colour."
Each rose accessory is custom made for you and can be created from a choice of 25 different latex colours including pearlescent finishes. The rose itself is sculpted in a way that gives it a fully 3-dimensional look and feel, and it is securely attached to a suspender clip at the back. The suspender clip is very practical as it allows you to position the rose accessory on any number of items. My preferred ways of wearing these are either clipped onto a choker necklace, over the straps near the bust line on strappy tops, or on high heeled shoes as shown in the photo.
The latex is thick enough to feel strong and the petals hold their shape without budging. The feel of latex is very sensual and just begs to be touched! Latex needs a little more looking after than some materials, and I always keep these roses stored wrapped in acid-free tissue paper away from light. You can leave latex unpolished if you prefer, or build up a glossy look by treating with latex spray. To maintain a glossy look you should polish the item before and after each time you wear it.
I have two classic red roses and am extremely pleased with them. I would definitely consider buying from Lickorish Latex again as they have a wide range of accessories to choose from and each one is customisable in your colour choice. This is a really glamorous and exciting accessory that adds a touch of drama to any outfit.
