Today I wore patchwork shorts.
Not that kind, silly!
I bought them a little while ago for my wife (who's healthy now, yay!), but well, I just couldn't help myself and wore them today...God, I know. I'm so ashamed of myself. I just feel terrible. I haven't been able to eat, or sleep...actually, I haven't gotten the chance to sleep since I wore them, and I actually have eaten...but I still feel absotively posilutely awful. Ask anyone, I was in a bad and solemn mood all day, except for when I was dancing and jumping around at lunch, but other than that...I KNOW, OKAY? But it wasn't my fault! I was enticed! There they were, in the corner of my room, neatly folded, fresh out of the dryer, and I couldn't find anything to wear. So, I put on my Mozart shirt, red headband, watches, gray I-feel-like-a-business-man socks, Tao-ish boots, pulled on the shorts and headed out the door. (I grabbed my backpack and lunch too, obviously, but for the sake of dramatic effect we'll pretend not.)

In my defense, you've been wearing my potential studded hooker leggings, too. Call it even? Yay! God I love our superficial relationship.
Anyways, these photos really don't do Shawty here any justice. If I wasn't a generous individual I would keep them for myself, they are just too rad. Since they're big on me it's like a polka dot/tribal/paisley/floral pre-Yohji-draped skirt. Mmm. You have my approval, demode ones. Karl moment.
I'd like to experiment more with accesories here. More jewelry and possibly a belt.You guys seemed to like my venetian mask, so I thought I would show you my Jamaican and New Orleans ones, too. The Jamaican and venetian ones are both gifts from Stephanie's sister since she's cultured and travels abroad and buys me masks to play with at home while I watch Family Guy and Friends since I never go on any world traveling adventures. The Mardi Gras one is my sister's, as is my new room that my pictures are in, but she could not take either to college. HI HAG.^^We're the best of friends.

I wore two watches, courtesy of Sophie (and ate breadsticks!)

Arabelle said...

Tavi said...

j-My teacher hates all students and humans ever. Her only friends are food. (Not kidding, I wanted to get help with my homework from her at lunch but she was OUT GETTING SHRIMP.)

And belle I am so sorry. This just proves that you can never, EVER trust hipsters. It's official.
And yes, I like grandmama sweatas.

Urban Audrey said...

manoman I just saw that you're listening to Neutral Milk Hotel. Excellent choice my friend...excellent choice. and two watches makes you look like a spy.

Tavi said...

Jeff Mangum=God. Though when I saw a picture of him I thought he looked like a polygamist. But that's beside the point.
I felt like a spy too, ya darn straight. I was wearing 3 to start with but one fell off in gym. Unfortunately, none of them work. I was sprinting to school, looks at watches, "Dammit!", keeps running.

bewkworm said...

ah social studies, i've got us history, and all we ever do is have pop culture/jersey trivia quizzes and make intense note passing sessions. it is the LIFE. and that your teachers love of shrimp cracks me up. cannot say why. perservere, tavi, anyone with the ability to wear 2 watches without looking crazy can surely survive a year of pilgrims and eastern european immigrents, or whatever they teach you wippersnappers these days.

Nadine said...

Hahahaha! Both hilarious AND awesome.

I used to be a social studies teacher. But not in America.

Tavi said...

Oh man, I'm sure you would've been a far more interesting and fun teacher than the old hag I have to deal with x_x

Elly said...

i adooore your skirt muchly! wish i could pull off that look, unfortunately the hips might cause a slight problem...
xx
ps. forget booze, the only drink needed in ife is nesquik fo sure

spookyghoul said...

You are the coolest little kid ever. I'm in freaking college and i'm mad that you have more fashion sense and guts than me. I want to come adopt you and make you my super cool little sister that picks out my outfits for me.

Hannah Cheeto said...

OH MY GAWD those shorts are awesome. They don't even look like shorts. They look like... awesome.

KD said...

I'm not a fan of my social studies teacher either. But don't you worry that she'll find this and kill you for it?

yoncto said...

OMG, my social studies teacher hates me too. INTERNET HIGH FIVE!!

jess said...

I love the editorial you posted somehow I usaully wind up with pretty cool socail studies teachers

Tavi said...

kd-eh, she already hates me anyways. I don't think she's capable of killing anyone.

Tess said...

tavi i love the skirt. super cute and can be dressed up or down. i also think it would look great with a tight little tank and a mix of pearl / glass necklaces and bracelets... fish net tights and ballet flats? keep up the good work!

ps. what is that food looking yellow substance under your wrist in the watch photo? interesting..

Isabel said...

Watch out, I'm gonna steal that Mozart shirt while you're sleeping.

Tavi said...

I'm scared, Isabel!
And tess, that's a breadstick.

Fashion Fille said...

Hanna said...

I don't understand, why do you like Karl when he has opposite views on fashion then you do? Is it because he's funny?
