New Essentials!

Ok so I'm a lazy blogger & released some newness yesterday @ CKSD but didn't blog 'til today. ;)

After I made Essential Sweater Dress, I started thinking that I might consider other pieces that are designed in the same vein...that is...not really to be *outfits* or separates made to be the *focus* of an outfit...but more basic pieces designed to be used for layering, building, & accenting. I consider it sort of a project for me to work on over time...building an inventory of versatile little essentials in a variety of color options...something I work on as the ideas come...and hopefully something people out there find to be useful little staples of their SL wardrobes.

Soooo...what I have today is the Essential Wrap Sweater. It's just the sort of thing you love to have, especially in the spring and fall...to throw on over a shirt...to dress up your jeans a bit...to toss into your car so you can pull it out and put it on later in the evening when the air gets a bit chilly. It's sexy & smart, a piece that's equally at home with slacks, skirts, or jeans...casual or more dressy...work or play. I decided to make my version a bit cropped...with a wrap front that'll show off whatever you want to wear beneath it nicely...but that will also nicely show off your cleavage if you wanna throw it on and go out to a club. I topped it off with sculpted sleeve poofs that hit just above the cuffs...and made the sweaters themselves modifiable just in case you want to shorten the sleeve cuffs and just have the poofs with whatever you wear beneath peeking out.

It comes in 22 yummy colors (and a 23rd color *just* for CKSD group members)...and it's available in singles or color packs at the CKS Designs Main Shop in Selby as well as SL Exchange & OnRez. Singles are $L90, 3-Color Packs are $L165, or you can get the whole Kit & Kaboodle for $L865. I'm leaving you with some piccies to show the color range available!! Happy Tuesday!!! <33333

...and...the teal...only available to CKSD Group members:

Skin - Fleur: Allure Lounge #1 in Cinnamon, Hair - ETD: Tiana in Dirty Burnt, Jeans - CKS Designs: Ligeia Jeans in Extreme Fade

Falling In Love With Fleur

So...after MUCH anticipation...the release of the new Fleur Allure skins is imminent!! The launch is planned for this coming Sunday (10/19/08) at noon game time at the Fleur main shop. For now...I wanted to give you a little sneakie peekie! ;)

I've been so excited about Roslin & CJ's new skin line ever since they started it...as I have long been a devotee of Fleur skins. And I have to say...everyone is in for such a treat with the newness. These skins are a bit more photorealistic than former Fleur skins...the faces are of course gorgeous as ever...and the bodies...well...they're just incredible. Overall the skins have a very vibrant quality...distinct and striking. I'll admit I had a bit of trouble at first. As we always are...I was sort of unsure on a changeover to a skin that was fairly different to what I had been wearing...and I had to do some minor tweaking of my nose and mouth before I was really happy with how they sat on my face...but...wow were they ever worth the effort!

In the pic above...I'm wearing my favorite of the new makeups...'Fall In Love' #2, in the Cinnamon skin tone. I really wanted to show off more that just the faces on these exquisite skins...so I figured...what better excuse to prance around in lingerie and take pics of myself...RIGHT?!! :P One of the things I love is the gorgeous tummy...very defined but not overdone...and the belly button is marvy. Also the cleavage is fab...and the COLLARBONE...omg...the collarbone is to die for. Of course the face...also very very very gorgeous. ;)

Being a redhead...I'm definitely a freckle girl...and there are some gorgeous freckly skins. Here I'm wearing 'Kit' #1 in the Cinnamon skin tone. Again you can get a great view of that gorgous collarbone here...and just the overall tone of the skin is fab...it just shines marvelously in windlight.

Also...since we're checking out the bod...let's not forget the rear view! Two of my fave features are on display here...the beautifully sculpted shoulder blades...and the OMG CUTE AS HELL butt dimples! This skin is also in the Cinnamon tone...my favorite of the new tones...altho they are all just so beautifully smooth...I know I'll be wearing some of the lighter ones from time to time.

This is 'Kitten' #1 in the Cinnamon tone. I love the highlighting on the eyes and the gorgeous red lips...as well as the aforementioned glow on the body itself...just total yumness!!

And...last but certainly not least...another of my favorites among the newness...'Smudged' #3 in the Cinnamon tone. Just a reminder that with all the buzz about the new bodies...those faces are still as flawless and exquisite as they come. ;)

As a reminder, you can nab yourself some of these beauties...and many more...starting at Sunday, October 19, at noon game time at the Fleur main shop!!

New tonight at CKS Designs...a dress I'm really excited about! ;)

I started out with the idea for the blouse...sleeveless with a sheer top...and a big sculpted bow on the neck. Then I wanted a sexy skirt to go with it...one with a slit over one thigh. Sooo a few days of playing around with first the blouse...then the skirt...and then I decided a garter belt w/some sexy stockings would set it off nicely. I decided to call it 'Savoy'...and made it as versatile as possible...lots of layers...a blouse that works tucked in or out...a skirt that has a waist that sits normally plus an overlay to give it an optional high waist...and the garters that are going to work under lots of your favorite skirts...or even with your favorite panties if you so desire. :P

ALSO...I have a special treat in the ads...a sneak peak of one of the new Fleur Allure skins. The face is gorgeous (of course..what else would we expect from Ros & CJ? ;) ) but...it's a shame I put on clothes...b/c the body on this skin is teh HOT. More peekies to come...release is still about 2 weeks away...so get ready. :P

SO...leaving you with some piccies...they're available at the CKS Designs Main Shop in Selby as well as SL Exchange & OnRez...$L275/single or $L640/pack (skirt & garter/stockings plus 7 blouses). Happy Wednesday!! <333
