Just Can’t Get Enough

And when it rains, you’re shining down for me
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
Just like a rainbow you know you set me free
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
~ “Just Can’t Get Enough” by Depeche Mode

I Just Can't Get Enough

Sometimes I am given too much of a good thing, but in this case, I just can’t get enough. NovaStar Shilova has come out with a new set of outfits—is this some sort of fall line because holy cow, she has a lot. Boots, dresses, ensembles—the whole nine yards. This is one of the outfits from the set. NovaStar present her ensembles in a terrific way—you get the outfit, the jewelry, and even the boots all in one set for one low price. In this case, I got the sizzling crocodile skin boots with the leather pants, a beautifully constructed camisole (love the ruffles and buttons running down the front), and a necklace. The perfect and very sexy punctuation to the ensemble are the opera length gloves.

I Just Can't Get Enough

Tuli is another I can’t seem to get enough of. I donned Tuli Asturias’ new skin for The Dressing Room, another in her Gina line. This time Tuli got creative with the makeup, drawing scrolls at the corners of the eyes. I suppose this skin would work better with a fairy outfit, but honestly, it’s too burning hot for such sweet innocence. I top it off with a loose pile of curls from Truth Hawks, the king of sexy hair.

I Just Can't Get Enough

It’s getting hotter, it’s a burning love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

Internacional One

Who is the person behind the keyboard talking to you? You can never be totally certain. We used to assume the person was a middle-class European or American person, probably white. Now with internet access being global, the internet can be as diverse as the real world is. And SL should be just as diverse.

Your friend might be this beauty, sitting in a salwar kameez she purchased in Mumbai o her last trip home. This particular outfit, made by Annapurna Onomatopoeia, and offered for FREE, is a beautiful example of a nice salwar kameez. Annapurna has tackled the system layers and won, putting the lower part of the top on the skirt layer with the appropriate slit up the side and adjoining it to a beautifully rendered embroidered top.

My roommate in grad school, Ajantha, ran around the house in outfits like this all the time, and ALWAYS wearing a bazillion gold bangles around her wrists. I could always hear her coming from the pretty jangle of her bracelets. She also had a little nose piercing as I show here—nothing overt, just small and sexy, a glimmering twinkle in her animated face. And this face, made by sanalyildiz Yalin, is especially gorgeous with its kohl-lined eyes and luscious lips.

Lavender for RFL

As you wander around the RFL Clothing Fair, you will see a lot of designers have featured purple or lavender as the color on their creations. Lavender is the color for the awareness ribbon for cancer, and besides it’s a great fashion color, especially in spring.

Lavender for RFL

Sissy Pessoa chose this for one of her beautiful offerings for RFL. This bold purple will get you noticed but Sissy’s elegant style makes it less garish than stunningly noticeable. With her great sculpty skirt, embellished with flowers at the waist and neckline, this sweet little kicky dress will take you around the grid from one dance hall to the next.

Then you have the jewelry Abraxxa Anatine is debuting at the RFL Clothing Fair. Abraxxa is the most prolific and talented of jewelers in SL, bar none, and this set features again her amazing talents. From the irregularly shaped semi-precious stones to the beautifully textured silverwork holding them, you can’t get better than this. And the styling of this set makes it perfect for this dressier look or a more dressed down ensemble. I wear this beautiful look with Lorac Farella’s equally beautiful new skin from her Emotional series.

Lavender for RFL

Finally I show cute purple pumps from NovaStar Shilova, also being offered as an RFL special. Nova has been making terrific clothing and shoes for a while. It’s great to see her spreading her wings and offering some of her wonderful stuff at the RFL Clothing Fair.

Fur Chic

One of the things a girl always wants is a chic fur coat. In SL, it’s possible to have a fur that is chic and doesn’t hurt any animals (except pixel ones).

Fur Chic

This cute little bolero jacket from Mavis McGettigan was sitting in my inventory, waiting for a moment when I needed that touch of chic, and when I pulled it out today to go dancing to the blues at Hotlanta, it was just what I needed. The shape lends a weight to the top of my body that emphasizes the hourglass shape of my waist and makes the rest of me look sleek and sexy. The sculpty prims are used ingeniously so the arm can hinge and still look like it’s in a fur coat and the texture follows suit.

Fur Chic

I furthered the long with leggings from Milla Michinaga. With their slight sheen and well- defined wrinkles and pulls, they add to the illusion of lean. A sexy black corset from NovaStar Shilova covered the bare midriff from the jacket as the jacket alone would not have suited my purposes. Finally, I ended these with the boots from Enktan Gully and LeeZu Baxter that keep getting press here. I am finding more and more uses for them.

And check out Tuli Asturias’ newest skin, Eva, which was a group gift this month. This is a preview of the updated version. I can’t wait to see what she has coming down the line.

Feeling Suede

(nova) by NovaStar Shilova has been hovering below my radar for a little while. I got a cool kimono from RFL made by her, but I really didn’t think much more about it until my friend Valeries suggested I check out her stuff.

(nova) has a variety of cool clothes–swimsuits, kimonos, evening dresses, and some really cute pre-assembled ensembles (all styled from top to bottom for you). However, I went straight to the wall of suede, and I was hooked. I could *smell* the suede—you know that rich smell when you walk in a store that has fine leather and suede goods. (nova) has suede pants, suede jackets, suede vests, suede cinchers and hotpants, suede catsuits, suede corsets, suede bikinis, and she has this hotter’n heck suede minidress which comes with a hoodie and an optional skirt that can be worn over pants (like a little jacket).  They come in a variety of colors—cream, mocha, caramel, chocolate, espresso, and black.

The details are something else… check out the zipper down the back…

Then she has belts, bracelets, cowboy hats, driving gloves, mules, pumps, cowboy boots, ankle boots, and these killer riding boots—all suede.

Feeling Suede

I chose to style this outfit with two pieces of jewelry. The necklace I got after wandering around a great little sim looking for something from Beanie Canning’s blog, Beanie Loves Japan! The middle stone is color change, and it cost something paltry like 50L. The bracelet is from the incredible Fallingwater Cellardoor.
