i am too flustered to type something witty here





I have to be zippity pipsqueekity quick here and not write too much. The bloody perfectionist I am will probably type more about her day here later, because I can't stand to have a post that is hardly words (unless it's an inspiration post, I like the pictures to speak for themselves) but I am on a CLOCK HEREZ.

Basically I woke up this morning and decided to dress opposite my mood and usual disposition. It felt a little too girly in the end though, so I added my Docs.

EDIT: You knew I would write more here later, right? So my mom told me a neat-o story after seeing this outfit. She was born, grew up, and went to school in Norway, and when she was in her early twenties she made a dress that was bright pink and wore it everywhere, actually overwore it to a point where it became just rags. At that time in her neighborhood everyone was very uniform and wore all black, so she stood out like a sore thumb and became known as "the girl in the pink dress." Kind of like when Becky Bloomwood fantasizes about being "the girl in the Denny & George scarf", right? Sophie Kinsella, anyone....? Anyways, perhaps I get my love for pink and ability to block out rude stares from her.
And that was my story.

Vintage Dr. Martens. American Apparel kneesocks. Claire's belt. Everything else is some form of secondhand.

I love this outfit, but that's nothing new. I can't believe I'm warming up to floral Docs but you wear them so well its hard not to.

dapper kid said...

The colours of your outfit against the snow look stunning! Love the pale pinks.

iris said...

Nadine said...

chelsea said...

You can never go wrong with pink...ok, maybee you can..horribly wrong...but this is not.

Jen said...

Good choice with the docs, I can't imagine it looking half as good with anything else. And it does look fantastic!

Wow.

Outrageouschaos said...

Yeah! This outfit made me happy.

Min said...

Regarding your last post: Uggs are ridiculous, everyone on my campus has them, and the worst part is finding all the knock-off Uggs-wearers. I'm surprised the trend has trickled down to the middle-school crowd as well.

that_isabella_girl said...

Taking the lace look to a whole new level. I'm envious of how well you pull this off. And maybe of your docs as well..

TheShoeGirl said...

Zany Style said...

Hi........I guess you have a lot of stuff on your hands.... but if you do read this, i would like to say what a crazy unique style. I am 12 years old and i made a blog, about my style too. Not totally vintage, but i wear some of my moms vintage clothes some times. "Music to your ears!" Just joking. By the way i love your outfits, every single one i been able to see. well if you have time come to my blog. I just started. Hey maybe you can give my some pointers! You don't have to it's just a suggestion.

Love you stuff,

Zany Style (Tati)

Yvonne said...

The mozart tee just ties everything together. or maybe everything pink and lacy just draws attention to the tee, but whatever, basically, i really really like the mozart tee.

Emily said...

Okay the Mozart tee is fabulous.
That is all.

Ellabee said...

I LOVE it! I'm falling back in love with pink. Good job, chicka!

eleanor said...

ooh, this is one of my favourite outfits of yours that i've seen! i love the cardigan, hairpiece and lace over the skirt. you are also genious at making a girly outfit look more edgey and less twee with some brighter colours and DMs.

Tru said...

brynn mannino said...

I love this outfit!

Katie said...

Love the outfit
has anyone ever told you that you remind them of Eloise?
You know the amazing series of books about the 6 year old girl who lives in tha plaza? (She was raaaaahhhhhhhther mature however , like you) I adore your floral docs almost as much as I adore my navy blue velvet ones with ribbon laces.

jennine said...

Tavi said...

Thanks guys! <3 I didn't even think about Molly Ringwald, but that was definitely an epic movie, eh?

theshoegirl-Haha, yes I am.
zany style-Young bloggers unite! I'll check it out nao...

I love the artisticness of the sixth shot!
Great outfit - yes, it's girly, but it's not airheadedly so.
And Becky Bloomwood is exactly whom I thought of after reading your anecdote :)

Anonymous said...

Wow, I just stumbled upon your blog and it's amazing! Haha, I love your connection w/ the confessions of the shopoholic books, can't get enough of those. Have you read them all? I hope the movie lives up to the book, not that any do. Well anyways, I love your blog, keep up the great work(:

Isabel said...

Wow, you pull off pink + lace like nobody's business! The Mozart tee is my favourite touchm though. Its great!

Astharis said...

Girlie Dress + Doc Martens/Converse = The BEST.

unlovething said...

I love Becky Bloomwood. I can't wait for a book about Minnie Brandon. However I think the movie looks terrible. They made her American! They also combined like 3 books into one and left out all of the good parts. yuck

Tavi said...

I totally agree. The humor is very British, you can't make her American! Also Luke in the movie looks like a pedophile, just sayin...

ldvnicole said...

I'm extremely wild about this color combination at the moment!

Tanya/Tikay/Tati said...

whooo this is my fave outfit ive seen you don! its totally something i would wear if you were my stylist :o)

Marion said...

Ok I know you don't wanna be cute but you are! Your body is just so sweet, I wish I was as pretty as you are at your age!
I'm not very fond of pink but this outfit is pretty cool.
Love your blog and Hope you'll continue.

(Sorry for my bad english, i'm fench!)

eclecticgirl said...

first of all...ive been looking 4 doc martens like that 4ever!!!!! god where do get all these cute clothes?? the last time i saw a pair of floral doc martens, it wus last year in the brick lane market in London (they were only five pounds, but they didnt fit dammit). also, isnt the title frm the post before (my heart is drenched in wine) from a nora jones song? ya cuz if it is...wow we have very similar music taste (two of my fav singers are on your profile!) check out mi blog plzzz

Katie Beth said...

Hullo. 8D
I was just looking at old posts - I'm new to your blog - an anywayyzzzzzz....
I sot of adore this outfit and all of the photos.
They're slightly amazing.

rose said...

This is my favorite so far, which is wierd, because its SO PINK. Maybe its because you look a little out of place in it, there's this awkwardness contrasting with the wildly pretty outfit that just makes it really fresh. Anyway. You're rad. I'm totally blog-stalking you.

Eléonore said...

Superbe

alina said...

Every single one of your looks is so amazing!
But this is still one of my favourites !
