It's not like I'm gonna go up there and be like "IAN! GIMME A HUG!"

Um, long time no post? Long story. In short, I was house hopping and staying with different friends and didn't have internet access. Basically, my week consisted of watching Korean soap operas, killing -2 people on Star Wars, playing tag in an empty movie theater, having a sleepover with a preschooler, constructing fabric trees, clinging to dear life when the Joker was being creepy, riding 30 year old bikes, being mistaken for a boy, and chasing 2nd graders for not smiling.

And how are you?
Thrift thrift thrift thrift
Dress: Gap, everything else: thrift

Put those fangs away. Thrift thrift thrift.

I attached a hacky sack Caroline (WHO IS HOME! YESS!!!) gave me to a gold chain. Intense. Thrift thrift DIY.

I love the shirt under the hacky sack necklace.

Nying said...

muy bien Tavi!

Lilac Stevens said...

The hacky sack necklace is really clever! I want to make a necklace out of a pinecone and drill some holes in porcelain animal figurines and make necklaces out of them too.

Tru said...

these outfits have an almost costume tell a story edge about them but then again so do most of your outfits great style

Emily said...

ha i love your description of the week. getting mistaken for a boy is never fun, but having an old man ask you if you're expecting is even worse. trust. (in my defense, i was wearing a maternity-esque-floaty-top but STILL).

Stephanie said...

Tavi! Please tell me you wore all those outside!

Arabelle said...

you are so cute. the first and last are my favorite.

Shade said...

ahhhh im in love with the last outfit! L-O-V-E I-T!! Chee-WA-WA!

Fashion_Loving_Stylist said...

You are fabulous!

bonjour girl said...

how could YOU have been mistaken for a boy?
people are crazy.
what thrift stores do you go to?
i mean, i don't know where you live but i love finding out new thrift stores across the globe.

Lindsey said...

Hey Tavi, I'm new to your blog, but look forward to reading it! You have such great style. Anyway, my favorite is definitely the second!

jess said...

Sugar Pop said...

well, I've been here missing chu!!!

wahoo! You're watching Friends. Which is pretty much why I love you. AND KOREAN SOAP OPERAS!!! I love how a tiny little kiss is like losing their virginity. It's so much less intense than American television. But, I love it!

Lots of love,

SP

Johanne said...

Haha, Tavi;D Go easy on the 2nd graders...I love all your outfitts, as usual. Can I please adopt you?

The Clothes Horse said...

You're a thrifting genius. Love how fun and quirky these looks are.

bewkworm said...

KYAAA, everything you do is adorable. you could roll around in the mud and then eat a jar of mayonnaise with your bare hands, and i'd still think you were the cutest thing in the universe. god, you better hope i never go to chicago.

I had absolutely no sense of personal style when I was your age so kudos to you for finding yourself so early :)

I love the first outfit. It sounds like you had a lot of fun. Tag in an empty movie theatre sounds like a blast! I shall have to try that.
