✫ TOP & SKIRT: The Velma Sweater & Velma Skirt is a Limited-Time Recolor (TSS Version) and is the current Saturday Sale by Just BECAUSE. The recolor comes in six vibrant colors/prints for 75L each or 400L for the fatpack. Both are fitted for Maitreya Lara/Petite, Legacy, Perky, Reborn, and Kupra.  If you would like it in a solid print, you can find the original release toward the back of the store. The original release 18 gorgeous solid 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.   

✫ LIPSTICK:   This is a sneak peek of  CAZIMI's upcoming new release of the Whisper Lips shade 10, 100%. It has not been released yet but will be soon! This set comes with 12 lipgloss colors with a gloss enhancer in three opacities. 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.

✫ EYESHADOW:  CAZIMI also created the Cocktail EvoX Eyeshadow shade 10 Gold, 60%. The Cocktail EvoX Eyeshadow consists of 12 BOM eyeshadow bases in 3 opacities, and eyeliner for Lelutka EvoX heads only.  

✫ HAIR: The stylish Isabelle Hairstyle is by MagikaThis hair comes with 315 hair colors, optional bangs, and materials enabled. This style is made of fitted mesh and comes in four head sizes. Magika has a vast selection of hairstyles. I have yet to find one that I hate. They are one of my top places to go for hairs, and I won't lie when they release a new one; I am one of the first in line. At the time of posting, the hair costs 400L. Please note this is alpha-based hair, so you may have issues with other alphas in SL. There is a demo available for testing it out before you buy.

✫ EYES: I am wearing IKON's 'Sunrise' Eyes in Pale Azure (L). 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.

✫ SKINS:  The lovely Hekate Skin in Choco is by  Unknown Hare. It is available in four pretty skin tones at the Happy Event for 450L each. Each skin tone comes with EvoX ear tattoos, head skin with and without brows, a brow shape, and freckles. The body skins are sold separately for 150L.

✫ SHAPE: The lovely Ume Shape is by  Unknown Hare at the Happy Event for 300L. 

✫ 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. 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.

✫ PHOTO LOCATIONS: Top photo was taken at Missing Melody; the second photo was in a studio, unavailable for purchase.

✫ POSES: The top photo was taken using the HappyKawaii Pose by LDK AnimationsIt is a free gift at Cheeky69! The headshot was created using Eternal Dreams Poses Lindsay 06 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 6,6995L on the Marketplace.

Disclosure of Material Connections: I may have received one or more products as review copies. Regardless, I only recommend products I personally use and believe will benefit my readers. See my full disclosure policy here.
