Time to DAZZLE and Glitter

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit the DAZZLE event for its January round, whose theme is Clocks as in "The Clock is Ticking for New Resolutions". It is a meaningful way to start the new year, and the designers have all provided exclusive creations which makes them all the more special. I am always intrigued by the interpretations of each theme, so a stroll through the expertly decorated event is always a treat. I also chose the popular Glitter store to visit, just two stops this evening, and I am pleased to share some of their current group gifts. The group is free to join, and you will find these gifts near a Christmas tree on the very back wall of their store. 

My first look of the evening is our exclusive DAZZLE offer from Cygnus Designs called Persistant Remembrance Cocktail Dress. It has a pocket watch image layered atop a golden pattern of clockwork components, which reminds me of Steampunk. The dress includes standard mesh sizes along with Altamura, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Physique, and Physique Petite. There is no Maitreya size which is the body I am wearing, but one of the standard sizes worked like a charm after a few alpha adjustments. This terrific dress is available only at DAZZLE this month, until the 25th when the round ends, and is a modest $50L.

Our next stop at the DAZZLE event is the {Melt} display, where this beautiful Birdie Bell Gown exclusive can be yours for just $150L. It includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD that lets you choose from 7 colors for each section: top, corset, inner skirt, and skirt. We can tint these rich satiny fabrics in any combination we wish, so have fun with the very useful HUD. The style reminded me to mention that there is a Medieval Fantasy fair coming up in SL in a few weeks, a fantastic opportunity to wear this lovely gown.

Now I'd like to whisk you over to Glitter, where there is a wall displaying an impressive number of group gifts currently available for their free group members, including this elegant Starry Night mesh gown. It comes in standard mesh sizes, and includes a tulle veil hat that is not shown above (my hair never seems to play nicely with hats). The neckline plunges both front and back, and the gold accents are simply stunning. 

You can also find this flirty Closer Lingerie Set on the wall of gifts, and with that sequin texture it lives up to the Glitter store name ;) The top and panties each come in standard mesh sizes, and the top is trimmed in lace to highlight the sparkle and satin.

For my final look of the night, I chose the Glitter group gift called Adele Fitmesh Ruffle Dress Wine. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a lacy texture and rich color.

It was quite a day, I am trying to distract myself from a local tragedy that is affecting many people in my area. It was a car accident that may have been intentional (possible suicide attempt) and cost 3 lives but not that of the one who caused it. I don't want to turn this into an after school special, but please reach out if you need help instead of hurting yourself or anyone else. I do have a busy weekend ahead, as usual, so I need to try to shift into that headspace. Deep breaths and positive thoughts. I am, as always, wishing you all a beautiful evening and sending many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
