Let me just start by confessing that I hate Marketplace. I don’t dislike it. I hate it. I don’t use it for myself, but have thought it was an acceptable option for gift-giving, but I have changed my mind. After more than L1000 in presents were not delivered and the responsible store owners did nothing, did not even respond, I have decided that all my future gifting will be things that I can purchase in-wolrd, put in a nice box and hand over in person. I will also still use in-world gift vendors, but Marketplace is simply not an option for gifting until its delivery system becomes much more reliable. So, I thought I might spend some time highlighting a few stores where you can purchase gifts in advance of Valentine’s Day. Yesterday I highlighted some fabulous jewelry from Donna Flora, but sometimes you might want to give some clothing – and Chantkare is a great place to start. Most, though not all, of the items at Chantkare are transferrable. Be sure to check permissions before purchasing though since items with resize scripts are no trans.
Bright leopard prints are really hot this year and the Leo dress from Chantkare is sizzling. I paired it with some fun shoes from Nardcotix that can be styled in so many ways.
The heel and shaft of the shoe can be colored in a rainbow of primary colors. The vamp can be colored or covered with leopard skin or houndstooth and the top box can also be colored. This gives us an entire wardrobe in one shoe.
Exile released brand new hair that is adorably windswept by gentle breezes. It’s called Meg and is so well-fitted that it was easy to find poses that worked with the hair.
Baiastice has a brand new skin called Nico – a fabulous new entry with many different makeups and options.
