Spitting in a wishing well


"It's my new fucking haircut, and if bitches don't like it then they're fucking skanks..." Oh, the joys of Youtube. With that bit out of the way, yes I did get a new haircut and I'm pretty chuffed with the results (considering the unfortunate hack job I had before).

I'm heading up the 90s revival of 2009 in this getup - floral dress, cage heels and the Johnny Rotten sweater I knitted myself. Except that it looks and feels a lot more like angel hair than Johnny Rotten would ever want to admit.

My next knitting project will probably be the exact same sweater, just using black yarn instead of light pink. Damnit if this sweater is sold out, I'll just knit it myself!

The Breeders make life better. Crash, I'm the last splash!


P.S. -Going away for the weekend, be back Tuesday.

i love your sweater! it immediately reminded me of johnny rotten, which i realized was what you were going for when i read the next line. i like that you pair it with a feminine dress.

Isa, your haircut is so classic, what a nice look.
I remember that sweater, and I've been obsessed with Rodarte ever since.
I'm ashamed to admit that I've never heard of the Breeders, but I love their sound. I'm going to look for more stuff by them.
Have a great week-end away! xo

Okay, first of all, I am loving the new haircut.

Secondly, you knit that fan-friggin-tastic sweater? I LOVE it. I would commission one, seriously. Looks amazing.

Anna G said...

You're so adorable. I totaly was thinking about the black sweater when I saw your top.

Girl With The Bow Tie said...

The hair looks great - you can totally pull of short hair (unlike me and my big, round head). I love your outfit! That sweater looks ridiculously soft and I kind of just want to cuddle with it..

Thanks so much for stopping by! YAY for thrift stores!

Ines said...

the way you look makes me want to listen to 90's grunge!

Diane said...

Bombin' sweater! You can really rock that thing.

Oh, and I've been coveting that black one for such a long time but I know I will never ever be able to afford it (or I'm unwilling to shed that much cash when I get bored of my wardrobe so quickly).

Can't wait 'til you get back for more postssss.

(Oh, and I've been meaning to say THANK YOU vair vair much for visiting/reading/commenting on my blog! I've been reading yours for a long time and you're one of the bloggers who inspired me to start one o' my own. So thank you, Isabel.)

that sweater is lovely, congratulations on having made something so nice

Patricia Ann said...

Sigh, it's quite sad and disappointing that you and I are wearing sweaters in the middle of "summer". Summer this year sucked, where's the heat??

Nonetheless, the sweater looks great. It reminds of those amazing Rodarte knits.

By the way, I'm doing a contest to win a bag ending this Sunday Aug 9! Not a lot of people have commented so you still have a big chance of winning!

Rob said...

Looks good to me! Nice sweater 2 ;)
