I Love You
…Not for me the cold, calm kiss
Of a virgin’s bloodless love;
Not for me the saint’s white bliss,
Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
But give me the love that so freely gives
And laughs at the whole world’s blame,
With your body so young and warm in my arms,
It sets my poor heart aflame…
Insert taken from poem by ELLA WHEELER WILCOX
Belle Roussel, designer and owner of Chop Zuey Couture Jewellery sent me the poem that was an inspiration for the styling of her newest release, A Poor Heart Aflame. Well it inspired me too. I was particularly galvanized by the allusion to one who gives love freely and passionately. Sinful elegance is my inspiration for the styling of this blog and ad I shot for Belle (shown at the end of this blog). I like the idea of contrasting the sophistication of A Poor Heart Aflame set with an edgier look.
Mega Textures=Mega Indulgence
The dazzling A Poor Heart Aflame is beautifully elaborate. It’s what Belle calls a Mega-Texture set. This is because the accompanying HUD offers a wide-assortment of options. There are seven different heart colors, eight stones, sixteen pearl colors and three different metals to choose from. The long layered chains are separate from the HUD and have an independent sizing scripts. I love wearing all the pieces together, but of course there is the alternative of wearing one or just a few of the pieces alone.
*Helpful note: If you find you need to adjust an individual piece of this set such as the layered chains or long pearl necklace, I recommend that you first save a copy of this set, then go into your inventory, got to “worn”, then find the folder with your set in it and click “edit” on the individual piece and move it accordingly.(Or to move a few select items at once, control and click on the three chains in your inventory for example, to move them at the same time) I found that because there are so many wonderful parts to this and many items are placed close together, that grabbing one item could prove challenging.
On the Dark Side
Thanks to GizzA , I found just what I was looking for when I wanted something naughty to wear. The Blade Body Set is absolutely delicious and generously comes with appliers for Belizza, Slink & Maitreya. The sexy Tight Boots are included.
I love the Nawia hair by eXxEsS. You can choose from two extensive texture-changing HUDs that offer a generous variety of colors.
The Sim I shot at is Dead End City . The area I did the photo shoot at is a part of the city that serves as an entrance to the associated adult role play Sim. I have yet to venture in there as it its a fetish-themed Sim, but I’ll admit it is sinfully intriguing.
Happy Valentines Day
I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day and that the fire of your Poor Heart Aflame is thoroughly stoked.
