Lonely Heart Holiday

Time is ticking closer to the big Valentine date! Have you found your Valentine dress yet? No? Well,  I have a beautiful dress at an outstanding price o share today!

✫ TOP AND SKIRT: The  Melissa Dress Limited Edition Prints (75L, TSS Version) is Just BECAUSE's release for Saturday SaleThe Melissa Dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara/Petite, Legacy, Perky,  and Kupra. The Limited Edition Prints version is available in six colors for 75L each or $400L a fatpack. The regular version of the Melissa dress comes in 18 gorgeous colors for 249L each or 1,299L for a fatpack. 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.

✫ FAN:  Amethyst's Accessories created the Chinese Stick Fan. I found it on the Marketplace for 99L. The hand fan has a flexi-tassel, black lacquer frame, and handle. You can turn the fanning animation on and off. I loved the quality of this fan.

✫ EYES: I am wearing IKON's 'Sunrise' Eyes in Imperial Purple (M). IKON's eyes are affordable at 150-170L each, and if you join their in-world group, you can get a free set of eyes.  Ikon's Eye sets come with IKON Mesh Eyes that are HUD controlled. You also 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 Kiss Me EvoX Lipgloss - HEART. The Kiss Me EvoX Lipgloss are BoM and are available in three color sets (Candy, Heart, Naked). They are available at 250L a set or 675L for the fatpack, including all three sets (Candy, Heart, Naked). Total steal of a deal!!! I am wearing the shade 12 in 80% opacity from the Heart color set. Each color set comes with 12 lipgloss colors in three opacities with a shine enhancer. CAZIMI is an excellent cosmetics designer. 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.

✫ HAIR:  I picked up the lovely Joya Hairstyle at Doux for 550L (basic pack with deluxe hud). Joya 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.

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.
