i could totes picture, like, a legit musical taking place right now. everyone stand on the desks and point at ramon.

I wore my Yokoo scarf today.
And I am in serious LOVE, people. Soft, warm, colorful chain love. It came only yesterday and has already gotten tons of compliments! The conversations usually go something like this:
Person: Ohmygod, I love your scarf!
Me: Haha, thanks! I mean, I didn't make it, but-
Person: *snorts* well duh, yeah, obviously. I got that.

...I am not known for being crafty, okay?
I first became addicted to Yokoo's flickr photostream when Elizabeth wrote about her way back in July, and Susie Bubble's more recent post about her Etsy store only justified the epicness. This witty picture has been my wallpaper for about a week now, not gonna lie...holiday cheer, right?
And now Elizabeth and I have a mutual obsession. You don't get much more bonkerz (WL slang) than a Minnie headband and multi-colored chain scarf, ladies and germs.
Some punk at school came up to me and tried to obnoxiously stick his head through Da Chain. By impulse/reflex I kicked him. If injury doesn't express my love for it, I don't know what does.
I've been having lots of fun playing with the versatility, too.
i need a haircut...and non-static spray...
Yokoo was sneaky and put a couple thrifted thangs in my package as well. The flannel I'm wearing above and the quilted dress I wore today, along with a couple other epic items you'll be seeing soon. It's all so unbearably epic. All of it.

Egadz.

outfit: dress & scarf, yokoo. hue socks, laia. shoes & shirt, secondhand.
versatile love (left to right): gray pullover, slow and steady wins the race. flannel shirt, yokoo. skirt, thrifted. gray printed pullover, belle.

Okay, I just wanted to say I have been reading your blog for a little while now and I love it. Because you make me laugh. Obviously your outfits are a big part of why I read your blog, but the text really packs it with a ton of extra awesomeness.
So THANK YOU for making me laugh!

whoa, scarf chain - i love this and i think i might need one!

I just stumbled upon your blog (me= apparently behind the times) and I just wanted to say I love your photos and your H&M rap. Seems I have a lot of "Style Rookie" catching up to do. so if you'll excuse me, I'll be on my way!

Alicia said...

I love both the chain and the dress! I've been eyeing off a Yokoo Minnie headband for ages as I have a slight (cough cough) bow complex ;) I'm in Australia so I think they're about $50 AUS or something...and despite it being Summer over here I need one...!!!

TheShoeGirl said...

Ummm... so I totally just went and bought me one of them there scarves. The LAST one actually. ;)

So awesome!!

Nadine said...

Scarf: excellent. Red coat: love as always. Dress: TOO AMAZING! Totally fantastic.

Ben (AIM NAO) said...

Tavi your last few outfits have been awesome. The scarf f-ing rules, and the dress reminds me of something a first grade teacher would wear, in a good way. Srsly so awesome.

Ian said...

Ah yes, but how tempting would it be to shove that scarve over the head of said punk and strangle him? I'm sure it was hard to resist, the love of the scarf withstanding.
The only thing that could be better is a) waffles b) toast or c) bubbles.

Rina said...

cute scaaaaaaaaaarf!

Zany Style said...

man! you bought yokoo's scarf!

AFitz said...

I don't think I've ever commented on your blog before, which is weird when I think about it since I've been following you since the fashbot-photoshoot days (not literally, but, well, moving on). I just wanted to say your blog is lots of fun, you are inspiring without being intimidating and I love how you keep a sense of humour about everthing. Keep it up girlie *gives thumbs up*

Isabel said...

Wow, I am loving that chain thang. It's great. In fact, I kind of want to stick my head through it too, but I won't.

emilie said...

Karen said...

this post reminded me of a scarf I actually knit that's supposed to be a chain! it's not as BIG as yours, but it's pink :)

M said...

How does a 12 year old kid afford a $199 scarf?

Charm said...

Tavi said...

Tavi said...
