Heaven Knows

C'mon, you didn't think I'd let the new year get away without a lil SEQUIN MADNESS, did you?

I bought this ridiculously 80s/trashy Joan Rivers sequin top this summer, but only got around to wearing it now. Its waaay over the top, but I tried to tone it down all classy-like with the Audrey Hepburn cigarette pants and brogues.

Yep, 2009 was a really enlightening year and I enjoyed just about every moment of it but I have a few goals that are just going going to push 2010 over the edge! I am so ready for LIFE right now.

(The sulky face is just for show, I'm really feeling quite excellent.)

You look AWESOME, I love your hair and sequins. I'm pulling out my sequined leggings and Doc Martens tonight, it's sure to be a party. Happy New Year!

The pessimistic fatalist in me always stays up until midnight only to see if the world is going to explode.

I hope you have a great new year! The tattered edges on that sequin top are so Balmain which could be either a good or bad thing. Or both, which is even better.

Oh, I tried on a shirt just like that yesterday. Definitely should have bought it...

Happy new year!

Your blog is so refreshing to read!
I'm glad you found the courage to wear that outfit, it's very out there! But I love how you're style is practical yet bold and daring.

I've never heard of Joan Rivers used to describe a top before, you slay me.
Interesting details in the last pic: fringed wall, ship art.
Happy New Year Isa! xo d

That is an amazing top!
I regret just wearing black right now D: haha~

also, in the last photo there, I am in love with that Wind-jammer picture in the background! Tall ships are the bestest.

if there is ever a time to be obnoxiously sparkly, it's definitely at new year's. have a good one!

Ah, so pleased to see some sequins again. Love the top and how you've styled it, takes it away from the 80s-ness and more into a sophisticated 20s ladyness, although Joan Rivers is awesome, and I don't think you should be ashamed to embrace her amazingness.
Happy New Year by the way as well!!!
