Thank you all for the many suggestions, keep ‘em coming! Today I bring you Rosalind Connage, the second love of Amory from This Side of Paradise. She’s a New York City debutante, and sadly I know quite a few girls just like her. They’re born rich and will do anything to stay rich, despite the consequences. Rosalind eventually broke off her love affair with Amory because he hadn’t the fortune she was after. Such is life, and Amory was left with nothing but himself. Poor bastard.

when i think of queen victoria the word that comes to mind is dignified. perhaps it’s just because of the imagery i’ve seen of her, who could forget that statue where she’s enthroned and looking out into the distance? it’s a pretty powerful image and you can tell that she means business. my favorite of her accomplishments (along with her husband albert) was the crystal palace exhibition where the world showcased technology and culture. to me it seemed one of those pivotal moments in history where everybody realized the future is going to come barreling towards us and we’ll be charging right at it. of course she today would walk that fine line between dowdy and dignified (a feat not accomplished by some of her contemporaries).
