2. I never really thought about anything else on the runway besides clothes, but Aussie Vogue inspired me to look more at the details. Shoes and makeup would only result in heartache since my feet are tiny and plays are the only time I'm supposed to wear makeup. I therefore decided to take a closer look at hair. Colored, crimped, decorated with things one may come across in an enchanted forest where owls tell stories and green ivy dances....how fun! I don't know if I'll ever dig out my sister's old 90's hair crimper or get around to gluing a tree to my head, but very inspiring nonetheless. Still working on those collages...
D. Well, I'm bored, why not do a Q&A video? Hey now, that's a lot of high tech for one post! Comment and ask me what you wish, whether it's about blogging, clothes, or what I ate for lunch. I look forward to responding and making a fool out of myself on camera!

I will agree that the fact that I'm 12 shouldn't set me apart from other bloggers, and it definitely shouldn't play a part in how one might react to how I think or write or dress. And I'm not the only 7th grader out there! That being said, I think it's a good time for the "cute" comments to be put to rest, as well.

Hate to throw all this dumb adolescence stuff here where it really doesn't need to be.

a) The late great Jenna Elfman in Dharma and Greg
b) Something a hair style selection magazine would've had circa 2001
c) A soccer mom's hair when she first wakes up in the morning
Whether you chose A, B, C, or none because you thought my telekinesis would read your mind and you'd feel guilty, it doesn't matter-I cut it today! Yes, IIII cut it. It was hard getting the hairs in the back but my mom later evened it out. So it's chin lenth but this time I'm going to keep growing it out, even when it gets mullet-y. And if the chicks in my grade have a problem with the mullet I can point out that Billy Ray, father of Hannah Pooptana had one and I'd be cool.
Also, I know everyone and their mom is being McSpazzy about this outfit-
And, ok call me a hypocrite, but now that I think about it-I sorta like it (WHAT? TAVI YOU CRAZY YOU CRAZY GIRL). Seriously, I like the slouchy and sort of cluttered look. Honestly, when I imagined someone like Tanya strutting this down the runway for D&G, it suddenly became a lot cuter-which I hate to admit is ridiculously shallow. But example: Jennifer Connolly gets shit for wearing Balenciaga. It's not that Balenciaga is ugly (do not even go there sista), it's just that people-myself included-can have a tendency to like something worse on a celebrity than the runway. Do you think it's because designers seem to always know what they're doing and celebrities are always getting bashed for the tiniest things? If I go on to Go Fug Yourself (don't get me wrong, I love GFY. Just using it as an example) and go "Ew Heather and Jessica, you are so right. That's incredibly ugly slash gross" then check out the newest, say, Marc Jacobs line-all of a sudden that gross skirt looks a lot cuter. Unless I missed something, designers are huge influences in the fashion world, and because of that I've never thought anything designed by such an icon could be considered as ugly. But is it the fact that these people are so well respected by the rest of the indurty that I don't see anything not to like? I mean, celebrities will be talked about for anything as trivial as itching their nose. It's become sort of a thing to gossip about what they wear, and maybe that's why I might be harder on ScarJo than Betsey Johnson (though I can't really picture Scarlet in Betsey Johnson, it's a bit too loud for her taste).
Oh shit, my superficiality is showing.

What I wore with a sweaty summer expression...Inspired by an all-floral look Ana did that was so beautiful! Damn I want floral docs.
Anddd today I hung out with a friend downtown.
Dear staff of Jimmy Johns,
Howdy! I really admire you for having the courtesy to donate free smells to everyone who walks in your door. You also make a wicked #4. Sorry that today my friend and I bought a loaf of bread that cost 50 cents and paid with a twenty. We didn't have anything smaller and we could tell you were a little P-Oed. You didn't deserve it, so here is my love, making up for wasting your time.
Kisses not disses, hugs not thugs,
TaviEverything is 100% vintage!

Remember the witchy post? Here, allow me:And some pictures from Foto Decadent:Well this outfit sort of reminded me of those. I looked everywhere for my 2nd grade Halloween witch hat but COULD NOT FIND IT. I assure you it would be in these pictures had it appeared.The little lace thing was a layer of another dress I had but detached it. Underneath I'm wearing a gray oversized sweater Stephanie gave me, and I found the coat thing and shoes in our costume box. Hopefully I can go thrifting once I get back from this damn vacation and get some more witchy items.
Today (well, the time I wrote this, not the time you are reading this) I bought Australian Vogue. Can someone please tell me what the real deal is with it? Is it true that they just use old features from the US Vogue? I'm awfully confused.

So the trip has been going pretty good, pictures and all that later as there's still more to go. I've missed you all so much! It's really rather pitiful how hard it is for me to be away from the blogosphere for a mere few days. I did do some thrifting however.
Goodwill in Ohio (the hotel carpet is so hotel-ish):
And at this vintage store called Monk in St. Marks in NYC. (DAMMIT I'M SO SORRY BELLE AND YONCTO!) In such a punkish area I of course get the girliest things....BLOOMERS! Up here for you miss Arabelle! And please PLEASE tell me the street style sites you got the inspiration from. I'm dying here. And floral suspenders! The thing is, they don't have clips, they have holes for buttons. I however, contrary to popular believe, am not an old man, so I don't have buttons on my pants for them to clip on to. Ideas, kind friends?
Tonight I was also super bored in the hotel room. I normally wouldn't post pictures so close to my....face. Yeah, I guess you could call it that.The dots are inspired by some chick on Facehunter who was also rocking some nice geek specs.Stars just seemed like fun.AHH. CDG/Tao. Of course I would never dare to create a CDG adaptation outfit and claim it to be any good, so the outfit is just random shit. It was really hard not to write "Be Inspihdgjhrjgeb" as my hand is very unsteady.
More soon, sister wants her laptop!
