Fabulous Day of Shopping.



Shopping is one of my favorite things to do, but only if I feel good about how I am looking. If I look good I know I will be lucky in finding something amazing to keep looking good in. Today's feature dress did just that!  

✫ DRESS: The  Grace Dress Limited Edition Prints (TSS Version) by Just BECAUSE was a past release for Saturday Sale and is no longer available, but you can get the original color versions still! The dress comes in 18 gorgeous solid and print colors for 249L each or 1,299L for a fatpack. The dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara/Petite, Legacy, Perky, and Kupra. Remember to try the demos first. 

Just BECAUSE creates high-quality original mesh clothing for women. I can not stress how much I love Just BECAUSE's designs. I have been following/blogging Just BECAUSE since 2012. The quality has always been top of the line, with significant care given to the styling and hand-drawn textures. To top it all off, Just BECAUSE has always kept it reasonably priced. Most places I found when I was younger have outgrown my price range and, if we are honest, style. But not Just BECAUSE; it just keeps getting better and better. vibrant color choices.

✫ HEELS:  Starlight Apparel created the lovely "Bae" Heels. I adore the bows on these shoes. The heels are fitted for Slink, Kupra, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and are hud-driven with 22 colors. You can pick these up for 175L at the Cheeky WoW! Event Room, which ends on the 25th.


✫ EARRINGS:  Ari-Pari created the Gemma Spike Earrings as their free gift for this round of the Cheeky WoW! Event Room, which ends on the 25th. You will need to join the free group. The earrings are hud-driven with 15 vibrant colors. I love these earrings!

✫ HEAD and BODY SKIN:  The lovely and versatile Lianna Skin is by .:Soul:. Lianna is a Generation 3 [G3] skin. I am wearing the [H5] human skin tone. The head skin is only for EvoX. The head skin and body skin are sold separately. Both head and body skins are available in 16 human and fantasy skin tone variations. There are demos available to try before you buy. You can pick the Head Skin up for 899L for each skin tone or buy a fatpack of all 8 human or 8 fantasy skins for 5,999L each. The body skin is available for Belleza, Legacy, Omega, and Slink for 449L each skin tone or 2,999L for the fatpack. If you join the .:Soul:. VIP group (350L), you can get a 15% discount on every purchase, as well as free group gifts and teasers on new releases, updates, and store sales.

✫ EYES: I am wearing IKON's 'Eternal' Eyes in Blue-Gray (M). IKON's eyes are affordable at 150-170L each color, and if you join their in-world group, you can get a free set of eyes as a VIP gift. Ikon's eye sets come with IKON Mesh Eyes that are HUD controlled. With the newer sets you get appliers for Lelutka, Omega, Genus, and Catwa, as well as BOM Layers in multiple eye sizes. I have worn IKON eyes for years. I highly recommend them because they are affordable and have a massive range of colors and styles to choose from.

✫ LIPSTICK:  Those pouty red lips were created using CAZIMI's Juicy EvoX Gloss.  The Juicy EvoX Gloss lipsticks are BoM with 12 lipgloss colors in three opacities with a shine enhancer. CAZIMI is an excellent cosmetics designer. I am wearing #10 in 100%. They feature tons of makeup (eyeshadow, blush, eyeliners, concealers, and more), mesh and applier nails, eyes, and lashes. You can't find a better designer for your cosmetic needs.

✫ EYELINER and EYESHADOW: CAZIMI  created the Yvette EvoX Eyeshadow ( 250L )These are perfect for the days that I want to emphasize my eyes. The set includes 9 base shadows in three opacities and four liners. I am wearing liner #3 in 100% opacity and the shadow base 8 in 60%. 

✫ HAIR:  I picked up the lovely Jenna hairstyle at Doux for 500L (basic pack with deluxe hud). Jenna is a fitted mesh hairstyle; the basic package includes 1 hairstyle and the fatpack color HUD. The deluxe hud consists of all stylings (4) available with the hair and color tint abilities. You will need to buy the basic pack for the hair before you buy the deluxe, as the deluxe is only a hud. The hair is in the basic package. Demos are available to try before you buy.

✫ HEAD: I am wearing Lelutka's Avalon Mesh Head in this post. At the time of this posting, this head costs 3,990L. This head can support  Evolution (EVO) and Evolution X (EvoX) skins. The Avalon set comes with a Head, Teeth, Mesh Eyes, Elf Ears, and many bonus goodies like hairbases, face light, multiple teeth accessories like braces, ear piercings, and samples of cosmetic tattoos. It is Bakes on Mesh Ready (BOM) and comes with a default shape, Head and Ear skins in BOM layers, and skin, brow, and eye applier. Avatar complexity for the head alone is approximately +5738 (Head, Teeth, and Eyes). Lelutka is my go-to place for mesh heads. I love their style, quality, and ease of use for their huds. I own several of their heads. There are demos available for you to try before you buy.

✫ BODY: Today's body of choice is Maitreya's Lara Mesh Body. The Lara Mesh Body is Bakes on Mesh Ready (BOM). The body includes Bom add-on parts, a save stick to save your configurations, Bento hands, with hand poses and hand AO built into the HUD. The body has the 5 default foot shapes (Flat, Low, Mid, High, and Ballet). The HUD comes loaded with 22 Glam Affair skin tones, and BOM layers are provided. There are five nail shape options and 19 nail polish options. Alphas are controlled via HUD. There are over 200 possible selections. The body comes with mesh lingerie made by Erratic and BOM Layers by Zaara. At the time of posting, the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body costs 2,750L. This is the mesh body I wear the most; I really like the softer curves, and  I find most outfits are offered in their shape. If you prefer a petite or flat look, Maitreya has add-ons for the Lara Mesh Body for 499-599L each. The Lara Mesh Body, the Petite Add-on, and the Flat-Chest Add-on have demos available to try before you buy.

✫ SHAPE:  My shape is the Brittany Skin Shape by Velour. I received it with my purchase of the Brittany Head Skin for Lelutka Evo X (799l) (not worn in this shoot).
 
✫ PHOTO SITE: Photos were taken at the Aurelias.

✫ POSE 1: RePose - Retail Therapy - Used Bag only & Eternal Dreams Poses Catrina 01 non-bento pose.

✫ LIGHTING: For lighting, I use LUMIPro. LUMIPro is a HUD worn by the photographer that controls all aspects of lights worn by the model or self. The photographer can adjust position, color, radius, and falloff. You do not need rez right to use LUMIPro. The built-in posing system controls ten models independently without needing to rez for pose stands. You can pick up a copy for 6,699L on the Marketplace.
