our tree doesn't look that bad compared to when we decorate it with preschool ornaments

Well, I'm back. For tonight, anyways. So far break has been a good combination of fun and relaxation, just the way I like it. There was nothing to do today though, except try to eavesdrop on my parents discussing gifts (whoops) and eat all the cookies my dad's students gave him. IN MY DEFENSE...there is no defense. He likes cookies and he loves his students. Whoops.It was -3 degrees F outside and I couldn't play in the snow as I'd hoped, but I did take the dog out for about 15 minutes. I wore 4 scarves and by the time I got back my legs and arms were puffy and red and itched like hell. I think I'm allergic to fresh air.Anyways, my day was certainly livened up when I received Isabel's blogger package in the mail! I was super excited, and everything is marvelous. The adorable dress that I'm wearing here was from her, I wore it today and decided to play around with accessories whilst standing next to our bare and depressingly small Jul tree. I don't know which is more pathetic-that it's almost as short as me or that I'm not even as tall as it.o hai mom in the background...i like your pants...
Either way, the dress is amazing. And comfy. And warm. Okay, when did epic clothes become practical? And WHERE WAS I?!?! Probably stuffing my shoulders with CDs or wearing leggings over my head or something. Did I actually think that wouldn't dislocate my shoulder/choke me?
Oh brain, you and your expectations.Also in the package was an awesome green 80's purse, skinny jeans Isabel sewed patches on (epic), a fur hairclip, an awesome card from the stationary I mentioned in my holiday guide, and-last but not least-thermal socks. An Isabel package isn't an Isabel package without em! I won't be able to wear them as well as she does but at least better than my dad, who is trying to bribe me into letting him borrow them because he refuses to turn up the heat and would rather bundle up. Normally I'm fine with that, it's fun FRUiTS-ing my outfits up with layers and I prefer being cold to warm. But in this case bundling up means him breathing on/being within 3 feet of my lovely socks, and that just WON'T FLY AROUND HERE. I obvz said no.Thank you Isabel!! Your package should be coming soon, ahempostalserviceahem. Now, time to clean out this joint:
And chhhappy cccchhhhanukkah to those that celebrated it tonight, I ccchhhope it was ccchhhhopping with cccffffffun.
That last one doesn't make sense. And it looks like it says coffin/muffin. Huh.

dress from isabel. dad's old glasses. sister's purse. headband, gift. jeffrey campbell oxfords, solestruck.com.

Chester said...

Cute outfit! Love the dress!

RunBarbara said...

this is so odd....i have that same purse- not the green 80s one but the red/white/navy one. i wonder if they were litter mates and now miss each other...

suzette said...

those jeans really are epic. i want me a pair. i love your tree, even though it is short and appears to be in the middle of your kitchen. short ones are sweeter anyways, speaking as a five foot fifteen year old.

Amelia said...

I love your blue sweater and the green bag. Wow, it's really cold over there.

Anya said...

Shade said...

Suzette-that was when we first got it, it's now in our living room but still just as bare XD
shade-Jewish and Norwegian! We celebrate Jul out of tradition but minus the religious part.

fashionista said...

That dress is so lovely.
And happy Hanukkah/Chanukah/Chanuka/Hanukka/how many other variations are there? to you too!

TheShoeGirl said...

HAPPY HANUKKAH!!!!!!!!!!

Oy to the world! ;)

Nadine said...

Fabulous dress - it looks terrific with the bag. How do you make retro styles look so fresh?

Fantastic wardrobe shot! I often wonder how many clothes truly-stylish outfit-ov-thee-day bloggers actually own. (Plenty!) I'm deeply intrigued by the wedding-dress-type garment . .

Soul Tanggg said...

-3 degrees!??
thats hard core!
i'd never leave the house

Kelly Cree said...

lets see more pics of ur mom ;)

Strawberry Fields said...

you are rather funny! i love the tartan dress and those glasses are just beyond cool! =)

aussie couture said...

My dear Tavi,

your gorg looks and clever fashion never ceases to amaze me. This is a tad embarrassing because I think you will say no but would you consider making a blog together???

you know where to find me.
xoxo, T.

honestly tavi, i think you're the smartest and most creative person i know.

i mean, not even i, much older than you, can sound so smart or think of wear cd's as shoulder pads..

if only i had the knowledge & creativity as you! i swear i wouldn't know you were 12 if you covered your face or something..

susie_bubble said...

Merry Christmas! The dress is marvellous...

aurora said...

wowzas! i love that dress... gee, i wish i got isabel packages :(

anyways, happy hanukah guys! xx

ClementineSundress said...

happy christmas tavi!

(love the glasses & the dress)
and also happy Hanukkah!

Tavi said...

nadine-It's actually my sister's XD this used to be her closet so some are still in here. She saw it at a sale at a theater getting rid of costumes and since it was only 50 cents she felt responsible to buy it. It takes up an absurd amount of space.

aussie couture-There's no reason to be embarrassed! I would love to take up your offer but unfortunately don't have the time. Running this blog alone is ridiculously time consuming and there are many things outside of blogworld that come first, like school and my bat mitzvah. I wish I could say yes. Your blog itself is pretty rad, you don't need me :)

him-Bahaha, yes, I suppose so.

Anon-Aw, you're making me blush! I often wondered had I covered my face or never mentioned my age would all these catty articles not have been written about "ZOMG 12 YR OLD", you bring up an interesting point...

Tavi said...

kelly cree-Haha, she sometimes jokes and asks if her outfit is good enough to go on my blog. Maybe some holiday pictures will have her in them.

Fashion Tidbits said...

you are incredible

Bob said...

Happy Hanukkah Tavi! It's a lovely -20 F here in North Dakota:)

Hi,I read your blog since, I think, one week, but I really like it a lot. It's different from others (and web is overpopulated by fashion blogs, popping out every day)and it catches me for the writings and the pictures. You're also really funny, and to me is so important taking fashion not so seriously as many people do.
Age really doesn't matter...:)
Sorry for my bad english (I'm italian)and happy christmas!
Silvia

hazel said...

um, the sweater is EPIC. the plaid dress is so lolita, even though i understand it's sort of hard to pull off the lolita look at our ages without being completely creepy...

NICE TREE.
NICE PURSE.
NICE EVERYTHING.

belinda said...

Well, at least you have a christmas tree. At my house we have a kumquat tree, no joke. I bet it's less than three feet tall, haha.

blogger packages sound fun to receive. Full of like surprises and whatnot.

Meaghan said...

Tahda said...

Sam said...

Hey Tavi,

Thanks for telling me (if somewhat against your will) about your blog on Saturday. Your writing truly does justice to your maturity and humor--quite an accomplishment given your abundance of both. I'm very impressed with the breadth and diversity of styles you use in your art. And most of all, I'm impressed that you could brave a whole fifteen minutes outside today!

Kelly said...
