Crack on the Head

Last weekend, I was browsing around in the Coach store (because poor folks can dream too!) and I stumbled upon the best bag in the universe. It was the perfect size and covered in SILVER SEQUINS.

I know this website picture makes it look horrible and cheap, but it was marvelous, I swear! That, or I'm simply blinded by shiny things. Seriously, there are a lot of horrible things that I'd probably do to get my hands on sequin encrusted articles of clothing.

Noir Ohio Vintage knows what's up!

PJ Harvey is amazing AND she wears sequins? Double whammy!




I have an alter ego. She is a disco ball. Darn right I'd wear every single shiny thing showcased here all together!

Mmmm! Scales and sequins and metallics and gahhhh. Sparklegasmic! Kid you not I just bought metallic heart confetti yesterday to put on a pair of glasses...and try to make them so people can see out of them...
ANYWAYS. Want me to send you a pic (or the pair themselves) for your sparkle ...collection/obession of sorts?
Would you ever hope to sparkle like a Twilawl vamp for the sake of the glitterskin?
END RANDOM COMMENT TRASMISSION.

I say embrace your magpie tendencies. Shiny things sure make life more interesting.

Dude, I love NOIROHIO. I actually succeeded in winning one of their dresses, and it's probably my favorite thing to wear right now! A total classic for my closet. As for sequins, I don't think I own a single article of clothing with it. Maybe I should start...

Sandra said...

Oh! She definately knows whats up! Thanks for sharing!

cheers!

I. Love. Sequins. And glitter. And anything else shiny. I will wear thick glitter eyeliner during the day because of the simple fact that it's amazing!! In a former life I lived during the glam rock era, that's what I always say :)

Sparkles,sparkles and more sparkles... sparkley things make the world sparkley. I've got two sequin skirts and a silver shiny skirt, and also a jacket with metallic threads in it... there is never such a thing as too much sparkle.
My blog is called Inside the Mind of a Discoball, after a comment made by a friend, I think because of my love for shiny things but also my love of disco dancing.

Rachel said...

Oh I'm in love with shiny things right now.
My brother bought 3 discoballs. One that is huge one medium one mini. Sometimes we walk around wearing the medium and mini ones saying "shiny disco ball" over and over again.

Sequins are the shit. That silver purse up there, will be mine. I MUST have!

Marlena said...

Lately, if i see anything sparkly or sequin-y i just have to have it.

And i think if it's done in a certain way,
an all sequin outfit wouldn't look that bad. Maybe a sequin romper/jumpsuit?
Or am i crazy? o_o

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

Coach and sequins? That is a combination I would never have forseen...

Xu Box said...

Hello, Isabel, It's good to be back and fashionable! That sequin purse is pretty fantastic but I've never been a huge fan of Coach though. BUT, I do enjoy the sparkles!

B a la Moda said...

Love sequins and that bag looks like the perfect accessory for a sequins addict like myself.

Isa, the fact that you've included a photo of the Universe in a group of things that you would wear shows that you need therapy. Proceed quickly to the nearest Army-Navy store and buy something made out of wool. Then say ten hail Kate Moss's. You should be o.k. in a day or two.
