Fuuuuuuuuuuun!


If a Court Jester was capable of time travel and wanted to be photographed for the Sartorialist, they would  totally wear this jacket. It's really classy and lined and makes me want to bop along to the song Fuuuuuun by Be Your Own Pet because she screams something about a "two-tone."

Does anyone still listen to Be Your Own Pet these days? Apparently they broke up in 2008, but I listened to them back in the day because they sound like today's version of riot grrrl. Their lead singer Jemina Pearl is a total badass, listen to that WAIL! Plus, she's wearing a Joan Jett shirt so bonus tough girl points for her.

Speaking of "two-tone," I used to wear these crazy black and white American Apparel tights all the time but I haven't worn them in ages. Let's re-live the memories, shall we?
2010.

2009.

Anywayssss, I had a really interesting time doing this "product review" for SheInside. At first they wanted me to pick something out from their "bestsellers" list but, I thought they might have more luck if I picked out something that actually aligned with my personal style instead of just typical blogger garb. So they were good to work with, because I'm picky like that and they're giving you 20% off your purchase if you enter the coupon code 'Isabel20' at the checkout, which expires April 30th.

i love your description of your outfit almost more than i like the actual outfit. you've got a way with words, isabel!

also, your half-tone tights totally remind me of my split ones: http://www.flickr.com/photos/garconniere/5462264040/in/set-72157612705765321

one of my coworkers called me "two-face, you know, like in batman" when i walked by and surprised him. it was hilarious... because he described my legs as a batman villain?

I love the button-down-as-a-dress in the second picture! You should definitely re-live that look more often. Also, your hair looks great, I'd love to see you dye your whole head blonde next time :)

YESSSSSS! Be Your Own Pet is my favorite band.

Laura said...

I love the jacket, I have been wanting something like that- one colour down each side!

The tights are cool. I made my own budget ones by cutting one leg off a black pair of tights to wear over coloured tights :P

Like the skirt, i had one like it but longer, yours looks better!

Awesome jacket!!!!! :)))

Emlyn said...

Oh man. That jacket. The fit on you is amazing. I've had the the same two tone tights forever too, I wear them on days I'm feeling in a social rut because they always get lots of compliments (and comments...) from strangers. Also, just finished reading your Seed #2, I loveee it.

Dominique said...

Be Yr Own Pet is tight, but have you heard Jeff the Brotherhood? Jake and Jamin from BYOP are that band and they ruuuule!

Magnet said...

YES! I still listen to Be Your Own Pet! they are great and I love the lead singer, the way she sings is fucking awesome. Have you ever heard 'Adventure'? I really like that song. Anyway, jacket is sick and I still love those two tone tights.

I had completely forgotten about Be Your Own Pet! I might just have an Adventuring session later, thank you for that. PS the jacket makes me want to cry it's so good.

Nafisa K. said...

Lauren said...

I definitely still listen to Be Your Own Pet. AND I went to a Jemina Pearl concert two years ago, wherein she and her band autographed my iphone case. I hugged her. The best!

ps: love the tights!

Rebecca Jane said...

I'm a pretty big fan of all of these outfits but the first one takes the cake in my opinion
