Week33 - It’s Curious……


I can’t help walking into Curious Kitties without experiencing a big dose of nostalgia and affection. CK, along with Tete a Pied, Nyte and Day, and Artilleri, were the first stores I fell in love with in SL.(After I had left the noob hangouts and Businessinabox nightmares!) CK manages to mesh together Neko, Anime, Japanese, Fantasy, Streetwear into a truly uniquely designed product. The store itself hasn’t changed a lot since my first days but that’s because it’s beautifully laid out and matches the design sensibility of the clothes. I have found setting my windlight pretty bright helps the darkness and like a lot of big stores it can be a bit laggy, so I lower my graphics also. This week CK has been running a Tiki Present offer (50L to buy a present, limit of 2, I got the brown leather skirt and lovely Tribal skin), a sale (10-50% off selected items) , a present tree (I received jewellery), and a Lucky Kitty Draw. One of the things I have always loved about the store is that prices range from under 100L for a top to over 1000L for a whole ensemble including shoes. This allows you to shop, come back later and match items which you may have bought a while ago. The store offers, clothes, accessories, shoes, skins, and hair. I own a number of the skirts which are lovely but need to be finessed a little for fitting.
