A description of the experience
The Romance of the Rose – translated by Frances Horgan
On her gold embroidered chaplet she had a garland of fresh roses, in her hand she held a mirror, and she had arranged her hair very richly with rich braid. For the sake of greater elegance she had sewn up her two sleeves, and in order to prevent her white hands from becoming brown, she wore white gloves.
