Black and White can be balanced.

"I'm normally late, so I just kind of throw on the sort of thing that's at hand. And then I'll go through phases of wearing the same thing again and again and again - and my wardrobe is mainly about black and white, so it goes together. I'll play with certain elements, but I don't really think about it too much." Quote by Daphne Guinness

✫ DRESS ✫ 
.:AMUI:.  | Antonella |   299L Fatpack or 99L Select Colors, The Happy Event
This beautiful latex dress will be available at this month's Happy Event (May 14th-28th)! It is fitted for Maitreya, Legacy, Ebody, Kupra, and Kalhene Erika. It is Hud-driven with 15 amazing colors!

✫ COAT ✫ 
If Design |  Briony Fur Jacket |  99L, The Happy Event
This lovely off-shoulder fur coat will be available at this month's Happy Event (May 14th-28th)! It comes in two sizes and is hud-driven with 20 colors. I really liked how it fitted my Maitreya body. I did have to hide the arms, so you may have to fiddle with alphas to fit your mesh body perfectly.

✫ SHOES ✫ 
 Mosquito's Way | Sherry  |   399L 
I went to Mosquito's way looking for something unique to wear with my outfit, and I found it! The Sherry Heels are fabulous! The heels are fitted for  Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza. They are hud-driven with 21 colors and 7 parts that can be customized. This is a very versatile heel! I also recommend joining the Mosquito's Way in-world group (50L). Mosquito's Way makes adorable 100% original mesh designs and spoils their group members with beautiful gifts.

Maxi Gossamer  | Kalistar Collar and Earrings Set  |  299L 
The Kalistar set comes with a color and earrings in gold and silver versions. It is 100% original mesh design. It is hud-driven with 7 muted metals. This is a fantastic jewelry set. I absolutely love Maxi Gossamer's designs. I think I own just about everything she has designed!

CAZIMI | Enamoured Evox Makeup (Shade 4, 60%) | 250L
The Enamoured EvoX Makeup set consists of 8 BOM Eyeshadow and 4 BOM Eyeliner layers in 3 opacities for Lelutka EvoX heads only. I am only wearing the shadow base color from this set. The eyeliner is from CAZIMI's Catty Eyeliner set (see below).  

CAZIMI | Catty Eyeliner (Shade 8, 100%) | 250L
The Catty Eyeliner set consists of 12 BOM layers in 3 opacities for Lelutka EvoX heads only. I absolutely love how CAZIMI's eyeliners layer with other designers' makeups seamlessly.   

CAZIMI | Poppy Blush (Blush 5, 30%) | 250L
The Poppy Blush is my go-to blush set. I love these colors. The Poppy Blush comes in eight shades with four opacities, in BOM for standard and EvoX heads. They also come with Omega appliers and includes a tintable white layer.  

CAZIMI | AXIOM EvoX Lipstick- REDS (Shade 8, 100%) | 250L
This set comes with 12 lipgloss colors and a gloss enhancer in three options. The AXIOM collection consists of  3 color packs: pinks, reds, and peaches. These sets are 250L each or all 3 for 675L. The lipsticks are for Lelutka EvoX heads. 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.

 ✫ HEAD SKIN ✫

The Avala Skin is a collaborative project between SOUL and VELOUR. SOUL created the beautiful head skin to go with VELOUR's Ipanema bodies. The head skin fits LEL EvoX and comes with brow and no brow versions. You also get a variety of ear tattoos (UNI, Evox, and swallow Gauged Ears). There are four great skin tones (Porcelain, Rose Kiss, Alien, and Dusk). If you join the .:Soul:.

✫ HAIR ✫ 
 TRUTH |  Cashmere |  300L each or 1,000L Fatpack
The Cashmere hair is available in 7 color packs (Blonde, Browns, Reds, Greyscale, Candy, Jewel, and Essential). The hairstyle is fitted mesh and comes with a style hud, with four styles. Truth makes amazing hairstyles. I have been a fan since I discovered them when I was a noob just starting to figure out Second Life.

✫ EYES  
IKON  | 'SUNRISE Eyes' in Imperial Purple   | 150-175L 
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.

Lelutka | Lilly Mesh Head | 3,990L
This head can support Evolution (EVO) and Evolution X (EvoX) skins. The Lilly 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.

Maitreya | Lara Mesh Body | 2,750L
The Lara Mesh Body 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.  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 before buying.
