Marketplace Magic

Hiya everyone! I had an urge to explore the Marketplace to see what I could find there for free, and I'd have to say it was a fairly successful exploration :) Let's have a look at some of the goodies I found...

This adorable outfit is two separate listings on Marketplace, but since they're both still free that isn't a problem at all. The store is called Online, and our top is Mesh Lady Bug Red while our skirt is Mesh Red Mini Skirt. The print with its cute polka dots is definitely reminiscent of a ladybug, and it's a nice punch of color. The frills on the top and the pockets on the skirt are such playful details, and either could be paired with anything else to dress things up or down.

The hat included with this dress made me think of a French maid costume at first, hehe, but I do quite like it and the dress looks beautiful with or without the hat. This great find is called Doreen dress 02 in blue, and I see a lot of green too which makes it remind me of the ocean. You get the usual standard mesh sizes in this gift, plus 3 sizes of the hat.

For something a bit edgier, we have this hoodie dress in a wild leopard print with terrific neon colors from Catnip Loveotomy, a store that is well worth visiting on the marketplace for dozens of freebies! Look at the fun details, like the pockets and rivets, love them. The armwarmers are separate so you can wear the dress with or without, and there is an alpha layer for them as well as a specific alpha for each mesh dress size. You probably noticed that my Slink hands' thumbs aren't quite through the thumb holes built into the armwarmers, my guess is that they were meant for standard avatar hands and it's possible that a different style/pose hands might work better. I didn't really mind though :)

This is a different style dress offered for free by Catnip Loveotomy, in various colors just like the above dress, and instead of gloves this cutie comes with wings. The dress is called Angelia, comes in standard mesh sizes, and the wings come in pink (shown), black, sky, white and yellow which are fairly subtle as you can see. Those sweet little chibi wings would go wonderfully with a wide variety of other outfits as well.

I'm still feeling sassy, as my final photo for the night demonstrates :) This dress is a free find from Sand Glam called Jessie, and the black and white photos are a creative contrast to the bright purple and the pops of red in the images. I'm really enjoying the style as well as the design.

Nail note of the night: I went with yet another Marketplace freebie, a Hello Dave gift simply called Free Demo Palette. It works with Slink and Omega, and has 5 widely varied styles so you can see if the new HUD works for you.

I hope everyone is having a beautiful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
