rain turns the sand into mud

I'm glad you guys liked my ~~rap. Not exactly the next Kanye [yet] but definitely an improvement from my 2nd grade potty raps. Troubled childhood survivors unite!
Kanye has a big ego anyways. My sister even said that months ago after seeing him at Lollapalooza! Actually, she didn't really see him. She walked out after a few minutes of him talking because he was so arrogant, she said. O_O now give those two eyes shutter shades and you're goooooood.
Blah blah blah, Friday's floral granny outfit.The debut for my new floral tights I bought Thursday at H&M. Not from the CDG collection, but for $7.90, why not? They're vibrant enough to make a nice contrast with grey and black items, but soft enough to be mixed with other prints.Tights, H&M. Cardigan, Delia's (my sister's). Pearl bracelets, Claire's. Everything else is some form of secondhand so I will not bother giving details...the pink skirt is a baby dress that's gone through the family that I now totally overwear as a skirt, and I belted it with a raggy green scarf I totally overwear as a belt. I put a pink lace miniskirt (used to be sister's) over everything, and since I have just rediscovered it will also be totally overwearing that (and will definitely have pastel Japanese street style combinations in mind...)I have made a new rule for myself that I have to find all ways to wear something before a thrifting trip. I'd say I've been doing pretty good, no?Also, I was interviewed at The Fashion Press for their blogger feature. Thanks Nancy and Lee!
Later, gator.

ETL said...

Love the outfit-- I'm in love with the floral tights =]

KD said...

I really like your outfit, it reminds me of an editorial pic I saw a while ago. Both your outfit and the editorial are enchanting and lovely.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

I actually wanted those tights and wish I had gone to an H&M but now I think they will be gone.

anyway, laydayyyy what about CDG?!?! You know Im living vicariously through YOU and your shopping exploits (right word... somehow I dont think so)

anyway, love the layering, so very very lovely. You kinda look like a fairy nymph or something.

long comment, but really, at least its not 126172617621 comments like last time :P (though it was fun)
Unless of course, your on...? And then Ill say "How bout them Yankees?"

Kanye got arrested for assault nearby where I reside yesterday. :D

J.Yo said...

i kinda adore you in this outfit.. i don't think i've seen you look this sweet for quite a long time!

Amelia said...

I love this outfit. Those tights are so cute. I wish the H&M near me carried tights.

In-tree-gue said...

the layering is lovely

The Stylish Wanderer said...

check out me latest post, arggggg! *shakes hook at you*

Shen-Shen said...

You're adorable!

I can't believe you can still fit into baby clothes, you're so tiny!

And haha, I like some of Kanye's music and I think he's pretty good looking, but it makes me laugh, how arrogant he is.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

you can totally steal the image if you want to.

Jacque-O said...

You are so adorble.
I love those pictures and this out fit is one of my favorites of yours!

Unique, and sooooooo Sheek!

Emily said...

My dear, you are likely the most simply brilliant person I've ever come across... and you're 12? You are an incredibly lovely little soul, and may I say just how exquisite your taste is when it comes to fashion.

Lou said...

I'm usually not terribly fond of florals but gosh those tights are gorgeous. Enough for me to wish that Australia, specifically BrisVegas had a H&M. They don't sell anything that lovely here!

Ella said...

Gasp, Tavi, you'll never guess what???
I. Have. Those. Same. Tights.
And we both posted an outfit with them ON THE SAME DAY.
Telepathic or coincidental?
Or just high street store syndrome?

Ana said...

I love this outfit so much. In fact I just creepily saved a picture of it in my inspiration folder.

Therese said...

The Weepies! I <3 The Weepies. Judging by your title, it's safe to assume that you are quite fond of them too? Or maybe it was just a coincidence, haha. Anyhoo, I really really found your rap hilarious. I have been visiting your blog religiously (meaning more than 5 times a day, or something) for quite some time now, and found you absolutely endearing! I love your style, and I can't help wishing I was at least half as cool as you are when I was 12 y/o. Keep on blogging, Tavi! I <3 you!

Hannah Cheeto said...

Ahhh. I've been looking for floral tights!

sam said...

i wish i could pull off such a flowery outfit like you!

Cynthia said...

Ahhh I love The Weepies! No wonder you post title seemed so familiar. Anyway, I love you blog and your style is so creative!

Anonymous said...

Your sister went to Lollapalooza. Luckyyyy. Lupe performed too. I love him. lol .

Isabel said...

melange muse said...

These are so cute! I love them.

isabella. said...

OMFG.
you're so pretty.
i want your floral tights. they're amazing. and the layering - ohmygod.
it's hard to believe you're only 12.
xoxo you're stalker, isabella.

Tavi said...

Thank you lovelies :)

zanita-Aw that is effing HARD man, curse you! I guess it would be...hmmm. God, so hard. Probably Tao Kurihara or Rei Kawakubo or Nozomi Ishiguro (Tao and Nozomi both worked under the CDG fashion house, actually). I never ever tire from the outfits from Japanese designers and street style, because there are seriously no boundaries and endless possibilities. Also, the marvelous clothes are never really things like beautiful gowns that you need to keep nice, they seem pretty comfortable for the most part.

shen shen- Not QUITE fit, I'm wearing it as a skirt xD

ella- Um HI TWIN. Gosh, we just might be! You wear them way better though, the skirt you matched was freaking epic.

therese and cynthia- The Weepies indeed! <3

paloma- Wow, that wasn't intentional but thanks! I adoreeeee him.

anon-I don't know Lupe, but I would kill a baby to see Wilco and Radiohead.

I think this is one of your better outfits. I especially love the tights & the layering on the bottom. I have no idea how you did it! Too cool.
