SL Outfit of the Day: Waiting For You

This past weekend's monthly Midnight Madness event inspired me to be get into a sultry mood for the upcoming Valentine's Day!

There were so many gorgeous gifts at this month's event, but because the gifts are exclusive and only have a limited number for a limited amount of time, it's hard to get a post out while it's still going on... at least for me anyway. So if you don't know about this event, it's kind of exciting trying to get into all the sims at the right time, and many designers even give last chance offers, some for 25L! But it goes fast! So make sure to look out for it next month! In the meantime, I've still got a few freebies here for you!

SL Outfit of the Day: Peace, Love, and Girl Power!


Women's Marches occurred across the globe last weekend, and the pink pussy(cat) hat became a symbol of women's rights. A good friend of mine made a cute hat that is resizable (to get it over some of those bigger hairstyles, ladies!), so you can show your girl power support! He will donate proceeds, and it's only 25L!

And no, that is not a bento hand you see up there. I just dusted off the pack of Slink hands I purchased a while ago because I remembered I had a peace symbol hand. I should get some use out of these before I move on to bento, right? I haven't taken that dive yet!

And don't worry, there are a handful of other freebies here to get your hands on!
