New Stuffs!!

A couple of new pretties today...a hot little dress and...something for hot weather...available at CKS Designs. :P

So I decided to call this dress 'Monica' for no real reason...sometimes a name just comes and you say...ok yeah that's good! It's a sexy, shimmery halter dress with an asymmetrical skirt. It's tad dressy...done with silver/gold metallic accents...and I'm in love with it!!!!! :P 4 colors...here're a cpl of piccies!

Also some cute little summery halter tops in bright prints w/prim ties. Great basics for the wardrobe...provided on all layers for versatility! I've included some random pics...there are 10 prints available in the shop as well as one made just for the CKS group (so join up!! :P)

...and this one's just for the group! ;)

Monica Dresses are $L170 single/$L340 pack & Flirt Halters are $L65 single/$L325 pack...and available at the CKS Designs Main Shop in Selby, as well as SL Exchange & OnRez.

That's me for now. Buh-bye. :P <333

YAYY Prettiesss!!

Some new goodies being released today wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! I've been a busy bee trying to catch up a buncha things...but found some time to have fun in photoshop andddd...here's what we gots!

'Alyson' is a cute little summery jumper-style dress. The high-waisted jumper bit is something I've been wanting to do for a while...and it was actually the tops from the OTHER release today that finally gave me the mental picture of how I wanted the overall outfit to look. Sooo...underneath the jumper (and yesh it's a separate piece...someone asked a few mins ago!) is a little off-the-shoulder peasant-style sort of white linen top with some drawn-on ruffle/gathering trim. Optional prim sleeve poofs are also included...but imo the top is totally darling either with or without!! Anddddd for you ladies who like to flash a little panty (or lack thereof o.O) with your dresses (*cough* Sasy *cough*)...you can wear the jacket layer version of the jumper w/o having to put on the glitch pants beneath. She comes in 7 cute pastel-y colors...& I'm including a piccie of the Apple & the pack ad!

Anddddd...a top that was inspired by one I saw rw...'Breeze' is a ruffly, light off-shoulder top with sheer, animal-print babydoll & sleeve ruffles. It works just as nicely without the ruffles as it does with...so it should work as a great mix & match piece for ye olde wardrobe. I've included a piccie of the Giraffe print top (my personal fave...which went out freeee to CKSD group members) & also one of the lot. :)

The Alyson dress ($L230 single/$L550 pack of 7) & the Breeze Babydoll top ($L140 single/$L350 pack of 5) are available at CKS Designs in Selby, as well as SL Exchange & OnRez...AND...the Surfer Girl collection is finally up on SLX/OnRez as well. YAYYYYY!!! <33333

Monkey See Etc

Ok since Dot posted about this I had to do it too. :P

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

All this wisdom etc I evidently hold would no doubt be the reason I routinely do things such as get a plate all ready and sit down to eat and then realize I hadn't gotten a fork to eat with, but only after staring at the plate for a bit thinking...'Something's not right here...can't quite put my finger on it...'. Yeah. Clearly all that knowledge is blocking up my brain.

In my ongoing push to be productive, I'll also say that the Summer Safari collection is now up on SL Exchange & OnRez. Progress... <333

SO YAYYYYYYYYY...we finally have the new shop build up and going...AND...we've decided to celebrate with a 50% off sale!!

There's lots of newness (brief preview above :P) & lots of newly marked down items...and from now until 9:00pm Monday (7/14)...*all* of it is 50% off. So...get on in and have a peek and nab some bargains at the newly rebuilt CKS Designs...or have a gander after the cut for the longgggggg version of the newness!!! <3333

Sooooo I have a couple of collections and some hot kinis to offer up today!!

First up the kinis!
The Safari Bikini is made to complement the Summer Safari collection. It's a sexy-but-not-too-skimpy little linen bikini that comes with a matching sarong. I wanted to do a basic sort of tie-side bottom/triangle top...but I think the textures really make this one pop. It's available in 5 colors, $L210 single/$L525 set...here's a pic of the khaki one! ;)

I love sailor/nautical-style clothing...and I've wanted to do a swimsuit in that style for a while...hence the Sailor Bikini. This one ended up being my favorite of the bunch...with a cute little sailor collar and a very sort of retro look to it. She comes in three colors, $L165 single/$L265 pack...all of which are shown below!

Also made to complement a collection (Surfer Girl)...is the Surfer Girl Bikini. My plan with the swimsuits this season was to make some varied styles...and I really wanted something with a boyshort-style bottom. After playing around with a hibiscus print...I thought a sort of retro-surfer style would be nice...and I loved the print so much I ended up building an entire collection around it! The Surfer Girl Bikinis come in 11 colors, priced at $L165 single/$L825 pack. The blue is shown below!!

Last up is the Life Guard Bikini. This one's the skimpiest of the lot...it's designed for the girl who wants to show off that toned, tanned bod on the beach. Available in 4 colors, $L115 single/$L250 pack...all colors are shown below!

So...the Summer Safari collection is something I've been actually batting around for months...first in my head...and then finally I got around to putting it 'on paper' or...putting it to pixels...or...whatever...and then I decided I wanted a bikini to go with. :P

It features 6 pieces (Jacket, Shorts, Pants, Skirt, Halter, & Sheath Dress) in 5 colors. The pieces make for great mixing and matching...nice, summery wardrobe basics that should stretch your inventory nicely. Also...since the fabrics are matched to those in the Safari Bikini...those pieces will also coordinate nicely!! The pieces are available individually and in sets at various prices...grouped by color or type of piece. I'm selling it in the same way I did the Amarantine collection last fall...so you can get one piece in a single color...one piece in all colors...all pieces in one color...or just go for the whole Kit & Kaboodle. Thanks to Dot Lane for suggesting a dress...I think it made a great addition to the collection! I'm including a set of pics to give you some detail on each piece!!

And...the collection that was inspired by the bikini...as opposed to the other way round...the Surfer Girl Collection. It's larger than the Safari Collection...with 7 pieces (Hoodie, Baseball Tee, Shorts, Skirt, Capris, Halter, & Dress) plus some matching bangles...in 11 colors, at various prices...also available in singles, piece packs, and color packs. Like the Safari Collection...the bikini pieces will also coordinate with the collection pieces perfectly! Much more casual than the Safari collection, the pieces are sexy, skin-baring, & sporty...perfect for hot days & warm nights on the beach! I'm including a close-up of each piece here...in various colors!

AND...WHEW...there we go!! Remember...through Monday everything is 50% off...so get on in to CKS Designs!!
