Isolated Heroes Nevada Pop Up
Fridays aren't really Fridays without some sequins. A couple of weeks ago I was surrounded by such sparkle, all thanks to Isolated Heroes. To celebrate their new Nevada collection they popped up in Glasgow for one weekend only. You know how much I love this brand and how much I love a pop up shop, so this combination was dream come true. Held at South Block, the place was decked out with tiger print, giant cacti and hay bales. Not only were there gorgeous garments galore, there was also an abundance of colourful cupcakes, some seriously cool Dr Martens and a sassy nail bar. All excellent ingredients to kick of the weekend. To make sure I fit in, I headed straight to Neverland to get some glittery nails by Frenchie Fabulous. She did a marvelous job and it was a challenge to stop staring at the sweet orange sparkle.
Ok, not that challenging, since the new Nevada collection is AH-mazing! Glam Rock meets Casino Chic for sure. The appliques, the animal print, the sequins - I loved it all. And it was all shown off to perfection by a gang of bad ass babes. With hair and makeup by The Academy of Makeup, these ladies were looking fierce. The additional sparkle and sequins added some serious impact, not that the collection needed it. The Isolated Heroes classics were there but with some new Vegas twists. Sheer black tshirt dresses covered with sequin snakes, while crop tops featured flaming dice and the faux fur was firy and neon. So good! Most, if not all, of the pieces have been added to my wishlist. The one that's right at the top of that list is the Cupid Frill Dress. I love the mix of gold and silver on the floral pattern. Plus the shape is sassy and sexy, perfect for a special occasion. Can someone invite me to a special occasion please?
I'm a huge fan of Isolated Heroes 'more is more' aesthetic. They make dressing fun and over the top, which can only be a good thing in my book. And, as if that wasn't enough, they're also an inclusive luxury street style brand and that isn't a phrase you hear all that often. All of their designs go up to a size 24 as standard and they are more than happy to help with custom orders. Because everyone deserves a sequin filled wardrobe. I know mine certainly could do with some more and IH is the first stop on my list. Just look....
