So They Say…

Dirait-on (So They Say)

Written/Composed by Morten Lauridsen (Translated from French)

Wildness surrounding wildness,
Tenderness touching tenderness,
It is your own core that you ceaselessly caress,
…. so they say.

It is your own center that you caress,
Your own reflection gives you light.

And in this way, you show us how Narcissus is redeemed.

Creativity Inspires Creativity

The early 1900’s European poet Rilke wrote hauntingly beautiful and often lyrical poetry about roses which  inspired composer Morten Lauridsen’s music.  I can’t help but wonder if Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey was inspired by the beautiful imagery in Laurdsen’s song  when she created her latest jewellery set by the same name. The “Dirait-on” set is as joyful and elegant as the song and includes a texture-changing HUD that offers a choice of 12 different stones.

I thought this outfit by RAPTURE™ was a perfect compliment to my look. It consists of the “Immortal” top and the “Zena” skirt: both of which come in your choice of Pale Pink, Lava Red, Ice Blue and Blanc. RAPTURE™ is fast-becoming one of SL’s top designers creating unique, high quality, fashion forward, avant-garde designs.

Chop Zuey Inspires Me

I can creatively mix the stunning new “Dirait-On” set with the dazzling avant-garde “Working the Nebula” fascinator to create a sophisticated look.  I just love the star-shaped pendant that comes with the fascinator. In fact, I’ve have often worn it as a brooch on dresses to add a touch of drama to my look. Creativity, beauty, and culture…that is what Chop Zuey is all about.

If you would also like to be inspired, I invite you to go to  Chop Zuey Couture Jewellery and see Belle Roussel’s amazing collections.

BONUS: Please enjoy the beautiful melody of the song, “Dirait-on”.
