Magenta Clearing.

And a 100% free look for you today (total cost on this look: $0L).
Magenta Clearing. Once upon a time (now many) SL lifetimes ago, I used to circulate a "Better Quality Freebies List!" notecard in-world for my fellow frugalistas. With the just plain silly amount of high-quality gifts abounding this time of year, I was inspired to curate a holiday, blog-circulated version of this list for our dear SLexy readers. -- Now this is not meant to be a comprehensive gifts list by any means -- there are sooo many gifts on the grid right now that it would be quite the daunting task to list them all -- instead, this is more like a personal short-list of some of the better-quality things that you can currently scoopie for free or cheapie (NOTE: that some will only be around for a day or two!) Some have already made the blog rounds, but others are brand-spanking new. Enjoy!
