Wheeee Pretties!!

Presenting the Poe Collection:

Yah I managed to do it again somehow...start out with one item and end up with a whole buncha stuff! o.O

I've been wanting to do some Fair Isle type sweaters for a while...and so the entire project started out innocently enough with that and an idea based on a sweater I got from Old Navy recently. I decided to try a cropped sweater vest with a Fair Isle-ish pattern and a loose white shirt underneath. I decided to call it 'Lenore' cos some friends & I had been talking about schools & it was the name of my middle school. After doing it...I just wanted to do MORE I decided to do more sweaters...and I decided then to name them after female Poe characters as a fitting match with 'Lenore' and the season. Sooo of course I needed some SOCKS to go with my sweaters...and since jeans were one of those pieces I'd never tried, I topped it off with some jeans and jean skirts and, well...a few weeks later...voila...tons o stuffs...tons o layers...tons o mix & match fun! *sigh*

SO anyhow...I did put them out today in the main shop...and wanted to take a few to blog about 'em tonight!!

/me takes a breath

There are three different sweaters, each with an associated legwear pack. The legwear packs come with knee highs, stockings, & two pairs of tights (one solid, one patterned to match the pattern of the sweater)...all designed to be as layerable as possible.

SO first the sweater that started it all..Lenore. As I said it's a cropped sweater vest with a Fair Isle style print with hearts & snowflakes and a loose white shirt beneath. It (along with all the sweaters & legwear) comes in 12 colors, which are available individually or in packs of 6 (bright or muted colors). Layers with the sweater vest alone are also included in the Lenore packs. Here's a cpl piccies! Props to Roslin Petion of Tete a Pied for this wonderful rosy-cheeked Automne skin which was just the perfect accessory for this collection!! :)

The Madeline sweater is the classic ski-type sweater...solid-colored with snowflake trim round the shoulders. I added some trim around the wrists and waistband...and made sure to toss in plenty of layers so you can wear it tucked...untucked...however you please!!

Last of the sweaters is Annabel, a cropped cardigan with longer sleeves and a matching tank top. The print on Annabel is all butterflies and ribbons and fuzzy sweater goodness! The tank also works nicely beneath the Lenore sweater vest. :D

Annnd last up the Ligeia 10 colors...available individually or in packs of 5 (light and dark washes). The jeans come on both pant layers and with optional prim flares. The Jean Skirts come with both a straight and tiered ruffle prim...or can be worn alone as shorts!

SO...whew long post almost over! ;)

The collection's available now at the CKS Designs Main Shop in Selby...and I'll get them up on SL Exchange and On Rez in the next cpl days!! All pieces are $L100 for a single color pack and $L300 for a color pack!

I now return you to your regular blog reading. :P
