s to the k to the i to the pper, i'm the funny kid with the curly her

I've been meaning to cut my hair for a while but kept putting it off, contemplating how short I wanted to go. Yesterday (or the day before? Both were unproductive so I can't remember) I finally cut it. I am mostly pleased it isn't too uneven but I think I'll try to befriend a world class hair stylist to fix it a little. Okay, a lot.
Bad pictures...I'll get more later, but this should give you a small idea...here my hair looks like a loaf of bread/disney hair, its all floppy
I'm unhappy with how short I went but at least now I can wait longer until I have to cut it again. Over and over again, I would cut one side, cut the other to match, the other ends up shorter than the first so I cut the first but it ends up shorter than the other, etc etc. Oy vey.Belle said I look like this chick. This was the haircut I WANTED and FAILED at because my face is too round. I don't like how it looks when I wear my glasses (which is all the time) but my prescription needs an update, so maybe I can get different frames too.
Anyways, some of you wanted to know more of what was in my closet after I posted it in Total Mess Mode (or, its usual mode). I finally cleaned it up, so here are pictures for you curious folks...
The inside of the door to my closet which is always open has a rack of my nice shoes and all accessories-sunglasses, belts, jewelry, tights, purses...
Speaking of purses, this is one poem I wrote that I am rather proud of.
Friends are like purses
You drag them around
And take money from them
I am so profound
-t
Inside my closet and to the right is a shelf-rack thang. Tops on top, pants/shorts in the middle, skirts on bottom.
Then my flava fave part is when you walk straight in, because it's all the things too nice to be folded. Velvet 30s dresses, Comme des Garcons, lots of lace, my grandma's old clothes, quilted dresses, and tacky jackets.[victoria chick picture via jak & jill]

Oh, As the Bell Rings. What quality mini-television...

I like the hair!

anya said...

i think your hair is gorgeous

Ashley said...

it's quite 20s looking. headbands and hats would be super cute. short hair lets you play with more accessories!

Tavi said...

Thanks guys <3 I think it's growing on me...
fashionista-lolol I love you so much for knowing that, it's an inside joke with my friend.

Booga said...

The hair is great. I've had similar experiences cutting my hair, that's how I once fell upon an asymmetrical haircut. I embraced the unevenness when I got tired of snipping away more and more hair- just cut the short side shorter...
Though over the years, I've developed a knack for cutting symmetrically...

Jenna Rocca said...

Your face is not too round for short hair, my friend. Why does everyone who doesn't have a round face think that they do!?!

Betty said...

Oh Tavi, you look so glamorous! Like you should be hanging out with Djuna Barnes in Paris

Your face is not too round for that hair!

How did you come to get so many clothes at such a young age? I mean, wow.

amy dawn said...

I think you look a bit like Louise Brooks in that second pic. Cute!

(PS I deleted my first post because i didn't notice there was a naked one on the google image search link... woops! this link is safe)

hazel said...

LOVE THE HAIR.
LOVE. LOVE.
NOT A FAIL. NOT. A. FAIL.

Tavi said...

I guess I am my greatest critic? Ah well. Thanks guys <3

fluffy-I am such a packrat it's ridiculous. I still have clothes from when I was a baby, our dress up box, and hand me downs!

FASHION DOOHICKEy said...

Woah, that was fashionably fast. Lurves the hair! Rei Kawakubo isthatchu?! ;)

Nadine said...

Your hair is exellent. I cut my own hair, and I know I wouldn't do as good a job. (That 2nd pic is totally Louise Brooks.) And your closet is killing me! A visual feast.

Bob said...

I agree with Amy - Your haircut really does remind me of Louise Brooks:)

Ana said...

I hate the word edgy but I kind of think it aptly describes your new hair.

And omigosh do you leave across from the church where you did that epic photoshoot in a white gown? If so, I'm jealous. Prime photography opportunity across the road.

lopi said...

You have some serious talent there, my friend. I cut my own hair too, but it's totally different because mine is long and very scissor-mistake forgiving. But how the hell did you manage to do such a good job cutting your hair short ON YOUR OWN? I just can't stomach it!
By the way, the last picture is one of my favorites here chez Style Rookie so far!

I love your new haircut.

It kinda looks like this:

Your hair looks pretty goodd and you have a walk-in closet?!?! Well most people probably do except for me but still! I think its what every fashion freak needs!

Laura MW said...

Love the hair. I know from (bad) experience about the trying-to-even-up-sides-yourself dilemma!

Woop for the wardrobe clear up too...reminds me that I need to do that at some point.

suzette said...

your hair actually looks really really good, not many people can pull off that kind of haircut. in fact many people wouldn't be brave enough to have that kind of hair, let alone cut it themselves. it looks really great.

gretchen said...

your hair is so chic! i love the cut. i've always wanted to go that short- it takes a lot of guts... maybe someday.

Shelley Noble said...

I absolutely adore the photos of you in this post, Tavi (and the poem!)

You are one of the most powerfully independent artists around today. I love the strength of your work.

Juliet. said...

I like your new hair, it looks very versatile! The first pic looks almost like a boy, this is good. Its very helpful to occasionally be mistaken for a boy, people feel embarrassed and then they feel they have to make it up to you and do things like let you on the bus for free.
And you look so much older in the second pic, I think its the dark lips.

I LOVE YOUR HAIR CUT. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.

ginny said...

I DIED WHEN I SAW YOUR HAIR CUT!!!
ah God, extremely jealous that I can't pull it off (my hair is super curly).
therefore, i love it.

and nice organizing. it looks like it could go on oprah. (you know how they have those organization shows all the time? well, i watch the soup, and i always get my oprah updates from there...so, here here to your extremely clean closet)

Vaughn's Mama said...

you look like a silent film star. adorable!

*Deline said...

Love you new hairstyle! Very 20's.
And love the poem :)

Isabel said...

Wow, the haircut is a surprise - but a nice surprise! Its so unique and you look like a Face Hunter girl! I am especially in love with that last photo you've posted.

P.S. -I spy with my little eye, pants with checkerboard kneepads! Yesss!

Anonymous said...

you remind me so much of the character Briony from the movie Atonement, you should do an outfit hommage to her! simple 1930's drop-waisted dresses, etc. :]

Bukuroshe said...

Faith said...

Tavi, you look stunning in that B&W photo. Absolutely stunning.

I love short hair. But I could never be as brave as you and cut it myself! I had my twin help me cut the bob I had in high school once. She did what you did...kept trying to even out the sides, and in doing so went shorter and shorter...until I finally stopped her and said, "Know what? This isn't working." I went to my stylist the next week to fix it. Hee!

victoria :] said...

ooh the title is from as the bell rings.
cool, i actually like your hair.

avputries said...

i like your hair. it's... fashionistic. and i dont even think that's a word.

ilikedginger said...

Totally Penny Priddy from Buckaroo Banzai.

jennine said...

sarah said...

wowww! your closet is killer, i wish we were sisters.

your blog is truly amazing, i read about it in this article on fashion blogs in Fashion magazine (not sure if you're aware of that, just putting it out there).
anyway, there's a lot i'd like to say, but to sum it up: i think you're the craftiest cutie on the world wide web!

葛瑞塔.greta said...

It looks totally gorgeous! The second photo looks like a portrait from the 20's. And the bowl cut girl's hair has really grown on me. I hated it at first but... I almost want it myself. But I also think it's kind of... ugly. I don't know.

Sunset said...

From the childhood of relentless bowl cuts, I can't say that I like it much myself. But it seems to work for you. Wow, you seem to have a LOT of stuff! And I love the poem, haha.

eleanor said...

your new hair is so AWESOME. i totally want a boys pudding bowl haircut, but 1. i couldn't pull it off 2. my mum would kill me as she never shuts up about how in love she is with my long hair haha

. said...

Oy vey iz mir ahaha I couldn't help but laughing (alone which is ridiculous but no one can see it so...)
Anyway, trying weird haircuts is always very useful, you're confronted to a weird you, a new and audacious you, and that's nice.
I started doing really strange things with my hair at about your age and didn't stop since...

Aliosha said...

Hm, forgot my name on blogger was a dot. Not very friendly, so I sign properly here :)

aurora said...

its freakin' fantastic. dont worry, tavi. :) i thinking of cutting my hair short - but i'll probably go somewhere and get it done as im too scared to do it myself because if it goes wrong i'll have no one else to blame...
your closet looks great. i want to come to your house and play dress up and then fall asleep in all the piles of beautiful clothes in your wardrobe.

Alice X said...

I love your poem, it literally made me laugh out loud. Yes, and the hair looks freakin awesome on you, you wear it well:)
