DAZZLE and Cosmopolitan

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am delighted to share not just one but two exclusive offers you can find at this round of DAZZLE. The theme is "Ice Cream and Popsicle Party", a fantastic way to celebrate summer's arrival, and it is open now through the 25th of June. There are exclusive offers from every designer, and we are lucky to have a talented group who keep us looking fashionable each month. Speaking of fashionable, I also have a few more group gifts to show you from Cosmopolitan to help them commemorate their 7th anniversary. You'll need their free group tag to claim these, so it's a good thing SL didn't reduce the group slots after all ;) Just look for the gift boxes at each display.

{Melt} is helping us enjoy the summer with their NuRetro Dress, exclusively at DAZZLE and for just $150L. This offer includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a 12 texture HUD in lovely seasonal colors. Birds are a personal favorite of mine, so these two selections from the HUD make me smile. I accessorized with some of the DAZZLE-ing exclusives from Beloved Jewelry from their Selenia collection - the necklace, earrings, and set of bracelets which are each $50L. I am a big fan of versatility, and this gorgeous jewelry brings that on terrifically as well. There is a menu when you touch any jewelry item that lets you choose from 12 metals, 33 gemstones, and 24 pearls, so you can get creative and match just about any outfit you desire. If you look at the inset, the large dark blue stones in the center are the gemstones, while the pale blue surrounding them are the pearls. There are helpful instructions in a notecard too, just in case you have any questions on how to customize your look.

Our next stop is the Cosmopolitan event, which might be crowded on the weekend but it is available until the 15th so no worries there. My top here is the gift from {ViSion} named Tisha, a vibrant pink strapless top tied in the front above a cute ruffle. It comes in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The jeans are a marketplace freebie from Delizio that are frequently seen on my blog :) I accessorized with the Cosmo gift from Miu called Jade Star Necklace, provided in an unrigged version along with rigged sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Legacy. There is also a color HUD for the stars, 10 hues each for stars 1, 2, and 3 in rotation. I went with pinks to match the shirt but changed to blue and green with a splash of white for the inset's closer view. 

For this image, I decided to compare two gifts that appear similar at first glance, but side by side you can appreciate their unique features. On the left is the gift from adorsy, which comes in a Maitreya mesh size and has that fun single strap and a delicate floral texture. FashionNatic's group gift appears on the right, Sonia Strapless Top in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya. The blooms of roses are much bolder, and the neckline is slightly off-kilter for a flirty style. Honestly I can see both looking charming atop a long maxi skirt, or a playful mini, but jeans or shorts are always a possibility this time of year too.

This gift from Seniha will liven up your summer wardrobe, with its bare back, skinny straps, and daring hemline. It is the Eliya Dress Fatpack, and includes sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies, as well as a HUD that has 30 texture options. There are solids and patterns among them, so whatever your mood may be, the HUD should have you covered.

My final look of the evening features the gift from {ZOZ} called Soft Fall Polish Gift. Such beautiful manicures always grab my attention whether RL or SL, and among the 9 shimmery shades included here I do see a few that will work just as well with spring/summer wardrobes as with autumn ones. (I'm looking at you, lavender and mauve and soft green!) The gift includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and the designer's own ZOZ Bento nails. 

Are we ready to dive into the weekend? I am getting there, mentally I am all for it but there are still some practical things I have to take care of first. My company arrives in a short while (30 minutes or less, and no they are not a Domino's pizza, LOL) and we have so many things planned for Saturday that I will not be blogging tomorrow evening. I'll be back Sunday though, with more new goodies and bargains for you to enjoy. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
