I've only got two hands.


Funny how I seem to blend in with the wall in this picture. I thrifted this sweater sometime last month and it has to be the weirdest animal print I've ever seen. Somewhere in the 'no man's land' between a leopard and a snake? My friend Owen has an even better description for it: "Christmas Gaga"! What does the sweater remind you of? I tried to tone down the 80s trash vibe by wearing it with tuxedo pants and brogues, but was only marginally successful.

In more compelling news...

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! Yep, time for Cadbury Creme Eggs. They are my absolute favourite junk food of all time. I need to petition Cadbury to start producing them in different shapes for all of the holidays. Cadbury Creme Tree Ornaments for Christmas? Cadbury Creme Witch's Cauldrons for Halloween? Somebody hire me to work in their marketing department STAT!

that is indeed a strange print - looks kinda like a giraffe?

i can't stand the original cadbury creme eggs but i love the caramel and the white chocolate ones, mmmmm.

emily said...

isabel, i feel like your style consists of crazy sweaters, leggings, and man-shoes. in the best way possible, of course. :) and cadbury creme eggs? never had them, but they sound delish...

louise or valentine said...

Amy said...

We're probably soul sisters. I LIVE for creme eggs. I stock up sometimes so i have them into the summer. Srsly.

diane said...

That sweater really does look like mosaic stonework, ha.
Can I have a Cadbury egg please? Don't be greedy.

Marlena said...

At first i thought the print was bleached leopard.
And then i saw the second picture and i was like Oh My God Sparkly Giraffe print?!
I love it!

Wendy said...

Love the print of your sweater!

mckenziepaige said...

Maybe if you're lucky, the sweater will lead you to discover a new species.

That would be sweet.

thatsorad said...

CADBURY!!!

miss morgan potts said...

That outfit is raddd (extra d's). You kept it from being too 80s by rolling up the pant cuffs I think. Also your hair and scarf combo is really cute!

Mark said...

I love Creme Eggs too. :)

I just read an article that said that Kraft is buying out Cadbury, so Creme Eggs might not taste the same next year. :(

the iron chic said...

Mini Eggs are my poison.
And I don't even really eat candy but that sugary pastel coating/milk chocolate combo is irresistable!

Helen said...

Over here you can buy creme egg bars all year round, though they're just not the same!

Sandra said...

Haha!! You are so funny, and I love how relaxed I feel when I read through your blog! Your style is so cool!

Cheers!

Oh goodness Cadbury. Even the name starts my teeth on the downward spiral to cavity-dom. I think you can tell people it's mythical Greek creature print. Like a minotaur. Or a sphinx

alice wayne said...

cadbury's is probably the greatest thing ever. i'm in love with crunchies.

great style!

Madeleine said...

Ha! You do xmas gaga so elegantly. How is that possible?

Like you I am hopelessly addicted to cadbury creme eggs. I have to ration them out or things get ugly.

Thanks for the well wishes! Hope your school year got off to a good start.

Great blog! I like your style. It just dumped rain here on this remote mountain top in the desert which I call home. Yes, me and my sewing maching that boots up like a bad ass!

Love that sweater! Ooo, makes me want to dig around thrift stores. Too dangerous though. I'd probably come back home with a few trash bags full of crap. Albeit good crap!
