Today's post was created as I was trying to organize my inventory. I really liked how it turned out, so I figured I would snap a few shots and share the goods with you all.

✫ DRESS: The Dahlia Dress is a new release by Just BECAUSE for FaMESHed, which runs till the 27th. The Dahlia Dress comes with a HUD that changes the straps and panty colors. The panties can be toggled on and off. You can pick from 18 fabulous colors. Individual colors are 249l each, or you can purchase the fatpack with all 18 colors for 1,299l. This outfit is fitted for Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Perky, Kupra, and Reborn. 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.   

✫ HEELS: Entice created the Earth Angel Heels.  These mesh heels are fitted for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. They include a 40-color change hud, making these pretties versatile enough to go with any of your favorite looks.

✫ NAILS: For my nails, I am wearing CAZIMI's  Souffle Nails. The Souffle Nails are on sale right now for the Saturday Sale for only 75L. This is a great deal! The nails come with a hud that works with Cazimi's mesh nails, Maitreya, or Omega nails (Fingers and Toes).  

You can pick up Cazimi's mesh nails for 1 Linden! They have rigged mesh nails fitted for Legacy, Slink, and Maitreya. If you use Cazimi's Mesh Nails, you can mix and match the colors on individual fingers. I used the applier with my Maitreya nails! Just look at all those great pastel colors you get with this set!

✫ RINGS: The MARGARET {Jewel} Ring Set is by PURERICH. This ring set is a fantastic bargain at 197L! You can get them at the upcoming Happy Event for 99l for each color or 300L for the Fatpack. The event opens on the 14th and closes 28th of every month. They are compatible with Belleza, Cinnamon & Chai, eBody, Inithium, Kathleen, Legacy, Love, Maitreya, Signature, Slink, and Tonic.

✫ EARRINGS:  The elegant Gemstone Hoop Earrings (195L) are by Beloved JewelryThey are customizable with 56 gem colors and 16 metal options with four zones to customize.   Beloved Jewelry is definitely one of my favorite stores to find something to add a little sparkle to my day. They have been creating fine jewelry since 2008 and have a large selection of affordable unique, customizable jewelry for men and women. I highly recommend you check their shop out.

✫ LIPSTICK:  Maktub Store created the lovely Afrodite Lipstick. This 10-color pastel set comes in applier form for Lelutka EvoX, and Akeruka ADVX heads and is available for only 99L at the HAPPY EVENT until the 28th.

✫ 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%. 

✫ 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.

✫ EYES: I am wearing IKON's 'Charm Eyes in Paradise (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, Catwa, and 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.

✫ HAIR:  I picked up the lovely Joya Hairstyle at Doux for 550L (basic pack with deluxe hud). The hair is a fitted mesh hairstyle; the basic package includes 1 hairstyle, optional bangs, 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. At the time of purchase, this head cost 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: The Lara Mesh Body by Maitreya is BOM (Bakes On Mesh) ready. 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.

✫ 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.
