i like to be gone most of the time

What I wore today, just around the house since we had no school. The day was spent drinking hot chocolate and looking at my book of Woody Guthrie's sketches. OH, and freaking out about THURSDAY because I'm going to H&M!! Last night I magically gained Nick Naylor powers and gave a whole pitch to my parents about why I should go. I'll be going from H&M straight to school to take a social studies test. Sigh, I knew pure bliss could only last so long before I am forced into the gates of hell...well, I guess pure bliss is a bit of a stretch. Try getting into fist fights with other die hard Rei stalkers? I CUD BE SMALL, BUT I CAN TEAR UR EYEBALLS OUT OV THEIR SOCKETS, FELLOW LABEL WHOREZ.
top, mom's. cape, friend wanted to get rid of it. lace dress and scarf, vintage. black skirt (underneath), family dress up box. tights, american apparel.
I took my lace dress, rolled it up as a skirt, and tied the excess lace in a bow with a green scarf thang. A family friend found the dress in like his cousin's dad's roommate's boss's long lost brother whom he met through the bondage of a family medallion's dog's rabies's car and decided to give it to me "because I know you love fashion so much!" My parents' friends knowing about ze blog is awkward, but it DOES have it's benefits...

P.S. OH, FLICKR. U MAK ME LAFF SO HARD. U SLY KAT U.

nice work turning the dress into a skirt. I'd say good luck on your test, but what I really mean is good luck at H&M

I cant believe your going!

Susie said...

I just found your blog recently and think it's great. Your style is amazing.

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!
Stylish Wanderer- Me neither xD It took a lot of convincing. The fact that I have not paid more than 8 dollars for anything in my closet helps, too.

Brooke Alexandra said...

You know, at first I didn't get it-your blog or how such a wee one could be so precocious about fashion. Then I remembered how I was at 12 :) Keep on rockin in the free world, you're the cutest thing on two legs.

First things first: DYING FOR THAT LACE SKIRT OMG.

Ava (intreegue) said...

Wow. The dress skirt thing is amazing. It's nice to know my friends and I are not the only fashionable children under the age of 18. We think your cool. Good luck at H&M.

roxanne said...

Mikkle said...

Nadine said...

Beautiful skirt - I love lace.

Hannah Cheeto said...

You're going to H&M! Yay! Can't wait to see what you get!

I love the pictures and the outfit. I wish I had a skirt/dress like that. And the cape is just awesome. It doesn't even look that costume-y, which is quite an accomplishment.

Cakemaster said...

I'm excietd about the H&M line, but not excited enough to stand in a mile long line in NYC, not to mention I've got school xP It's cool that your parents are letting you go though! Lucky gal, have fun there!

jess said...

Have fun at H&M I wish I could go but its not coming to my local one. I adore your lace skirt and the two tone tights

KD said...

Cape = PURE UNADULTERATED AWESOMENESS

THE LACE SKIRT EQUALS MORE AMAZING THAN SLICED BREAD.

And flickr has a good sense of humour for a website. :)

Catherine said...

your sophistication overwhelms my inferior lack of enlightenment.

The Cats Jammies said...

I'm not sure how i stumbled across your blog. I just wanted to tell you that I am envious of your drive and your written articulation. I hope I had fifty percent of what you got going on when i was 12.

Isabel said...

Ooooh, that lace skirt/dress thang is amazing and looks superduperfantastic on you. Good luck at H&M, and remember that violence kills. I know you're a juvy and probably wouldn't get punished too hard, but just in case, ya know?

Ashleigh said...

Totally random but I subscribe to a canadian Mag called FASHION and they mention you ...in an article called Fashion Bytes---they say you are "fashion savvy beyond your years and speculate as to whether it is a 12 year old who writes this blog"..."you have earned a cult of readers" ...I would scan it for you but I actually dont have a scanner :s.....
XOX
if you like I can prob take a picture with my camera of it and send it to you ;)
let me know

lopi said...

We're waiting for your H&M coverage!!! I also went today and got some stuff and I was thinking of you the whole time, like what would be small enought to fit you. Got anything? We're dying to know!!!

Lux said...

haha yeah I'd feel a little awkward about the parent's friends and blogging thing..

kirsty lee said...

that's really cool of your parents to let you go.

i used to skip the first first few hours of school to buy new blur albums on the morning of release. but i didn't tell them.

Allure said...

You have amazing style ;) I love the way you layer your clothes.
