I'm starting a petition for an Official ABC Kids Reunion. Zing!


Shirt- Used to be friend's dad's
Jeans- H&M
Shoes- Converse
Sunglasses- Used to be mom's

Sorry for the fugly expressions. But scribbling em out would get rid of the lovely sunnies, and we simply can't have that!
So, used to be friend's dad's....my friend Grace's dad is your straight up 80's stereotype. He wears loads of denim and leather, has a mullet, pierced ears. Oh, and did I mention he's a librarian? I shiver from the irony. Too cool. This is reassuring to me that I can be a super cool geek. What a relief! Anyways, this shirt was his in the 80's....how he ever fit it I have no clue, as it's practically perfect on me. My friend uses it as a nightshirt, so decided just to give it to me. I love all the colors and the pure 80's-ness of it. I presume the little guy's name is Zing. The outfit isn't all that creative, but I HAD to post the shirt.

Zing reminds me of Doug's friend, from that old Saturday morning cartoon. Look at his pants/hair! Man, ABC kids used to actually be GOOD! Screw Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana. I miss Doug and Pepper Ann and Recess and the whole gang!

Oooh, guess what I found:Felipe Oliveira Baptisa, much? They used to be my dad's in the, surprise surprise, 80's. Best decade for sunglasses, hands down.

Hmmm...I could've gotten much better pictures of the collection if his website wasn't all Flash Player or whatever. These are from google. Anyone know how to do that thing where you copy the entire website page you're on?

Speaking of superheros, look what I saw just now on The Sartorialist.
I also watched The Incredibles today while babysitting.
Perhaps this is all a sign that I should finally admit my secret super power >:)

jess said...

those sunglasses are so fun. I love that yuo doodled on your converse. I'm 14 almost 15 why?

ihatemycurlyhair said...

please tell me you are wearing a waterproof, glow-in-the-dark lizard watch from target!

if so, i have the exact same one. it looks like mine, but it's hard to tell.

Tavi said...

ihatemycurlyhair-You know it! I love it and I'm always wearing it, but the ticking is so loud, don't you agree?

jess said...

i don't mind you asking. last yeat i went into a store and the lady thoguht i was 20 i didn't know what to think about that

ihatemycurlyhair said...

haha. i do agree. but it comforts me, i think. a word to the wise, though: even though it says it is waterproof, don't wear it in the shower! i did for a long time and then it got all gross and gave me a rash and then i had to buy a new one to replace it. too much info?

p.s. cute outfits :) like, every day.

Tavi said...

ihatemycurlyhair-Haha, nope, not TMI. I got it a little wet at the beach and it stopped working for a while. Now it's better, but the glow-in-the-dark isn't as bright :(

missie.eng said...

LOVE the shirt! Is it glittery? That is amazing. So are the sunglasses.

I miss Doug. I feel old.

P. S. There's a key near F12 that says Prnt Scrn. Alt + Prnt Scrn = screen capture.

L.J. said...

Wow! Those glasses are quite ambitious! You're probably right when it comes to NYLON in Norway. Not very likely, haha.

And, yes, we did have fun ^^, The dresses are quite lovely, thank you. Btw; what do you think about my latest purchase, my brown leather pumps?

Au revoir,
Johanne

Elana said...

LOVE that t-shirt! Doug used to be my FAVORITE!and those glasses are so fun! you're so lucky that you're parents still have cool 80's clothes!my parents were no where as cool in the 80's!

p.s. it makes me SO mad that they have all those stupid kids shows on now and I miss all the good ones! Even though I'm almost 16, I would so watch if they still had the good stuff on! its so stupid how the people on the shows now call themselves actors...

GREAT blog!
