December 29, 2008

she's just like a blob that sits on a desk. sometimes a hand descends from the depths to pass out a paper but it mostly just babbles words.

Ello govna. Yesterday we had a power outage, during which I learned all of these things are far more enjoyable in candlelight:
O HAI Fisheye camera, I see you thar. Yep, it's all mine. Saturday Sophie and I went downtown and ate chocolate Santas and looked at fancy Vogues and I finally put my Urban Outfitters giftcard I won from the Weardrobe contest to use. Excellent use.At UO I had originally gotten 2 overpriced headpieces, but then whilst walking out eyed a Fisheye with my non-fish eye and got that instead. I am very happy with it, as I've been wanting one for a while and Sophie said she would make me the headbands anyway (which I doubt because her craftiness and creativity ended in 5th grade when she realized knitting sweaters and making necklaces out of hemp was not accepted in suburbia. Loser.)
(Um, I can still come over for New Year's, right?)I've already gone through a great deal of the film but was STUPID enough to open the DAMN DOOR. Well how was I supposed to know it's supposed to remain shut? They should give you a lock or something.Or, as a young David Thedarith might have guessed, little ants or squirrels or midget guitar teachers would be inside the camera, holding the film door shut. Now THAT would be a quality camera. Honestly. I could befriend the little camera elves and dress them up in tulle and Vegas makeup, and if they ever got into fights I could peacefully resolve the problem by scaring them to silence with the camera's electronic flash.My tolerance level for an overwhelming amount of keffiyehs and fedoras is smaller than a microbe, but I did really like the tights and hair stufffff selection at UO, if overpriced. Speaking of microbes, HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT THIS GIANT PIMPLE?[giant microbes-a new trend of 09!]

I also got to wear my favorite sunglasses out for the first time. Finally. Gosh, anti-social, darkness-loving, best-friends-with-couch-and-tv self. It's about time.
When I wear them I see purple.
No outfit-analyzing today, I just wanted to be warm and not colorful. I love the ropes attached to my gray dress though. Sophie had to hold me back from using them to strangle this V-neck (and I mean VVVVVV NECK) wearing punk at H&M.
I probz won't post tomorrow, so happy new year everyone! It feels like 2008 went by so fast even though it was probably the most eventful year of my life.
Oh, and guess who's going to the Inauguration? Suckers~~

mom's old wool jacket. chris & jaime dress and vintage lace crinoline, gifts (thank you lauren and yokoo!) slow and steady wins the race shoes/bag/sunnies.

Incredibly jealous about the inauguration deal :].

Bob said...

Happy New Year Tavi! - Reading your blog has certainly been one of the highlights of 2008. That's great about you going to the inauguration.

I received this Giant Microbe as a birthday present a few years ago.

Kaylee said...

D'AULAIRES' BOOK OF GREEK MYTHS = LOVE.

Jealous of the camera, btw. :3

Hot Bot said...

I have that Greek myth book!

ellecarter said...

are you standing on/at the mall or do you have actual tickets to the swearing in at the capital you get through governmental connections?

Claire said...

Amazing sunglasses. And camera. I'm going to the inauguration too :)

Fashion cameleon said...

those are killer sunglasses (and i really mean killer, you know like in the old movies, round sunglasses that hide the eyes)

Amelia said...

The fisheye camera looks really cool. Opening the door will give the film more, err, character. Just tell yourself that. I accidentally did that the other day when I was checking to see whether my camera had film--doh!

Joey said...

Tavi! You're coming to DC? I really should go since I live so close but I keep hearing that there's gonna be like millllllions of people.

stylishdoll said...

Just discovered your blog and I love it ! You're so inspiring :)

Btw, take it as a compliment or not, but I do think you look like Liam Gallagher (from Oasis) with these glasses. I can't help it

Happy New Year !

fazed-girl said...

YOU'RE GOING TO THE INAGURUATION?! HOW MUCH DO I WANT TO BE YOU?

CLEARLY TOO MUCH BECAUSE MY CAPS-LOCK IS STUCK.

I laughed out loud at David Thedarith, and I gave my cousin Giardia for her birthday.

I also dig your bag.

Casey said...

Love the post [and your whole entire blog.]
I work at UO and people will come up to me and ask me if they would buy this sweater, belt, etc. I want to tell them "psh, if it wasn't for my employee discount I wouldn't be shopping at this overpriced store."

Ana said...

Ziz outfit is really awesome. And I just recieved that same fisheye!

P.S
I just realized that by tagging you I kind of broke the no press rule although I'm not sure if a tag counts as press. I can take it down if you want?

Anonymous said...

you are so damn cool. i can't even handle it.

lopi said...

You look like an extra from a sci-fi movie, where poor people live in a huge filthy metropolis and are always trying to escape to the paradise island where the few rich live. Only you would actually prefer the metropolis.

Vintage Tea said...

Love the colours of this outfit together. You look amazing as always. I cant wait for more of your outfits in 09.

Have a good new year.

lucille betrancourt said...

ooh i would like to be like you because you're funny clever and you have talent (in french we say talent but i dont know in english)

Miyu said...

Haha...microbes! I work in healthcare and have been giving them out to friends, who look at me like I'm crazy. I like the common cold one the best. :)

La Fée said...

Awesome as always :)

sefi said...

love the sunglasses and you look super cool! Happy New Year!

designdog said...

Tavi,

I just love your blog. I am reminded of so many creative, non-tv activities that I used to do as a kid. For instance my sister and I still cherish the Cool Whip top nativity scene christmas ornament that she made in Sunday school in 1979 even though it causes the tree branch to bend precariously and blocks other more retail-looking ornaments. And one Christmas I got a hand-crank knitting machine that would basically make a tube. I made A LOT of leg warmers that winter.

Best
Maggie

stylemagnet said...

Yum for fisheyes and those shades and THE INAUGURATION. Happy new year, Tavster.

My said...

Your sunglasses with your new haircut is beyond amazing. Seriously, so inspirational. Oh, and what's this talk about you go to the inauguration? Sooooooo lucky.

Isabel said...

What? You didn't spend your UO giftcard on scarves/fedoras???? Just kidding. That fisheye camera was definitely a good buy. I love the outfit - yout hair and glases are supercute.

Inger said...

i've been following your blog for some time (since summer?) - love the quirciness and straight-forward aproach - and fascinated by your age..

wel.. I1'm norwegian - and couldn't help but notice the Norwegian decorations, so my question is: are you of Norwegian herritage?

hugs Inger
(and not so sorry for my bad spelling..)

susie_bubble said...

Ack! Those are the glasses I originally wanted but had to get the other white ones instead....!

You look amaaaazing in them.... happy new year Tavi-ola.... that joke won't be gotten unless you watch Gavin and Stacey (a UK show....)...

Freddie said...

YAY giant microbes! oh geez those are amazing. My friend and I discovered that sight while researching for an epidemiology project our senior year and wanted to buy one for our teacher as a gift... but were too cheap. But I am so glad to see the appreciation for those awesome creatures being spread ;)

also, awesome glasses. and camera. and generally other stuff as well.

sarah said...

killer shades! i'm trying to hunt down the perfect thick frames...

Chester said...

I was wondering if I could link you on my blog?

Maddie said...

I love those sunglasses! And I have a fisheye. It's awesome :)Don't worry, opening the door can make awesome effects on the film. I've done it too. xD

anna said...

Ooh, I see you have D'Aulaire's Greek Myths there...that's my favorite book! So beautiful.

I've been giving Giant Microbes to sickly friends for years. I gave a sniffle-prone coworker the cold, a good friend got mono from me once she got back to work after having mono for a month, and my best friend was treated to an adorable dose of malaria, after she got back from Africa where she had contracted it!

Reesey Peasy said...

OH, OH! I love your new hair, you look so different! Different is very good! And I love your shades, AND I love David Sedaris! <3 More power to you, Tavi!

Sunset said...

Love the outfit, and those shades are infinitely amazing!

abby c m said...

OMG are those sunglasses from Slow and Steady Wins the Race?!?!?!

meghan said...

ooh i see you're reading Me Talk Pretty One Day. That was the beginning of my now full-blown obsession with David Sedaris. Very, very good.

"hi, i'm ginny branch and i love love." said...

a-ma-zing. my oldest sister gave me a bunch of these microbes when i was about 15 or 16, about ten years ago. gosh, i'm old.

p.s sweet sunnies and tote.

HaleyAllison said...

I think this is actually one of my fave outfits I have seen on here. I dig the layers and the colors.

Nadine said...

Seriously that is one fantastic ensemble you're wearing.

Poppy said...

I DESPERATELY WANT THAT JACKET!!!
