its like she banged her head on the keyboard and said what the heck, let's name the baby that

Today I wore one of the dresses Yokoo gave me and I looove it. As soon as it came in the mail I knew I had to put it with these Pamela Mann tights from mytights.com. Pink is a rare species of plaid!
And a warning if you plan on buying the tights: The magenta is MUCH more purple in 3-D life. OMG, life exists outside the internet?Had to add a different color between the patterns just cos it felt wrong otherwise. Black pencil skirt over my purple tutu skirt. Also my black cape because there wasn't quite enough black.
Yesterday I received some fun things in the mail from Jen, including some pins she got in Japan (I'm wearing 2 here) and a bunch of music + Bob Dylan stuff + Sprouse for LV-esque dress + THAT Vogue Alice in Wonderland editorial with Natalia (sooo happy to have it in print).One pin has a bunny and stars and the other has the Chanel logo. It's fake, obvz, but I love how awesomely stupid it looks with totally non-Chanel things. Non-feminine and unclassy things, stuff that disagreeds with their "A girl should be two things-classy and fabulous" (personally not my kind of thing) aesthetic. A few people at school were all RIP OFF BLEH OFF WITH HER HEAD but the irony is so so good. Anyway, the pins were pink and black so I thought they'd be nice to add.
Thanks, Jen!These shoes have enslaved me and are all I wear nowadays.
And a neat picture (full ed here, giving me ideas for my Fisheye camera and bedroom walls!)[foto decadent]
dress and pins, gift. cape, secondhand. pamela mann tights via mytights.com, gift. gap tutu skirt. childhood closet black skirt. slow & steady wins the race shoes.

Ally said...

I want a cape to show off my super-hero powers with.

Malena said...

The title makes me laugh! I have to say I like this outfit better than the last one. I was a bit puzzled by the basket

In-tree-gue said...

hazel said...

....were you watching that Vh1 celebrity baby names show when you wrote this title?
because it sounds awfully familiar.

KD said...

Gawd that cape is amazing. As is your entire outfit.

Josephine. said...

I admire you : )
first time writing here
but I read you always!
thanks for share!

Fashlynable said...

Hahaha love the pin. I can't count all the Chanel rip offs and my school with my fingers and toes times two. And that dress is really great. Looks decently warm too.

Fashion_Loving_Stylist said...

Tavi - this is my favourit outfit to date - Just had to comment.

FASHION DOOHICKEy said...

This room reminds me so much of my room before. ahaha..

Claire said...

Your capes are so epic, as are the tights. And heh, one of my bedroom walls looks a bit like the picture, only without the cool all black/white effect.

Nadine said...

Just amazing. That last one of you is so beautiful. You are so gorgeous, Tavi.

Erin said...

I wish I had your creativity! I love those plaid tights too-- I have some purple ones that I should bust out sometime...

Mollie Aesthetic said...

I definately saved that picture too. I love that editorial! And your plaid is really awesome, so was your plaid outfit the other day.

KEREN said...

The last picture of you is quite enchanting. ;)
I'm really falling for the dress, and the overall outfit looks great!

Aysha's Rabbit Hole said...

your plaid madness inspires me!

keira antoia rose said...

victoria.. said...

Wow, you look like a supervillian here! I don't know why, but the whole outfit kind of reminds me of the bad gal.
But I totally love it.

Yess said...

Excellent plaid! It's the new...well, everything.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

second picture = freakin phenomenal. in like the most mystical stupidly fantastic, "dont look at me, im a mysterious celebrity" kind of way.

Kelly said...

the two plaids together look AWESOME! and those pins are great too!

Elene said...

i absolutely love the pink and black.. my two favorite colors girl.

and i just LOVE the pins.. so so so cute.
what did people think at school about this one? i bet everyone shut their trap.

melange muse said...

This outfit rocks my socks off!

TheShoeGirl said...

Awe Tavi!! These pics are extra adorable!!!

Eline said...

Oh man, I love this outfit. Plaid clashes FTW! Plus, is that a cape? I'm in love *_*

Nicky said...

were you wearing pink eyeshadow too? I generally hate matching eyeshadow to outfits, but i think you could have pulled it off. pink eyeshadow kinda gives me the creeps, but in the photo above the fisheye photo it looks pretty cool.

annah-logue said...

mmm, plaid!
by the way, i was sitting in a "i don't want to do work" stupor earlier, looking at the reverse side of vaguely interesting article i ripped from The Times Magazine from 13th december and realised i was looking at YOU!
it made me jump a little! you probably have seen it (do they notify you about putting you in magazines?!) but here is my shitty scan anyway!

Margeaux said...

I love that last picture of you! It should be your blog banner image.

Min said...

i loved that mixte editorial! the pink plaid is great; i recently found a magenta/blue plaid shirt and can't wait to wear it.

chris petres said...

mmm..tavilicious!
ps. i dont even kno why i said that.

Nana said...

oh, that ALic in Wonderland editorial is so beautiful! John Galliano is my favourite! And that editorial form the photo you posted is beautiful too! That fisheye camera is great!

eleanor said...

oh i love this outfit! the dress yokoo gave you is magnificent, and i'm tempted to buy magenta tartan tights now. i have teal already but maybe i should add more colours to my collection..

Tahda said...

ooo, great outfit.

I love that fisheye shot too. I need to start using my fisheye lense more! thanks for the inspiration (as usual).

rachel said...

i LOVE that dress. where is it from?
your plaid obsession reminds me of my affinity for houndstooth...lol :)

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!

Nicky-I'm not, maybe it's because my face becomes really red in the cold! Haha.

Annahlogue-Thank you very much for the scan, as no one had notified me of the article and they gave out far more information than I would have wanted. They didn't even email me about my pictures! Either way thanks so so much for letting me know.

he and she vintage-Ooh, exciting! I actually wear a size 2 US (sad, I know) but the ones here are I think a size 4 and still work fine.

i heart art said...

hey, lovely afternoon here in california. real nice, about 80 DEGREES! i'm sooooo jealous you have snow. :( TEAR- anyway i absolutely adore your random-have-nothing-to-do-with-the-post-titles! HOW do you come up with them?!? (sigh) i seek your awesomeness. I hope i'll turn out to be like you next year when i turn 12. (yes, i'm 11.)

i heart art said...

ok sorry i couldn't resist commenting again. you've been really into plaid lately -haven't you?

just a guess.

fiercekitty said...

yea for capes. capes are awesome.. practical.. inspiring and just absolutely cool.

the neckline on the dress reminds me of a comfy pillow mixed with the delights of an oversized scarf.

pretty bunny kitty pin. pins rock my world except when they ruin clothes in the wash.

i heart art said...

i totally agree with fiercekitty. pins are stupendous! ya got a borng outfit(this an example that does not apply to you Tavi, you never have boring outfits)stick a bit of pin pizzazz on there and voila! helpful advice? nope!

Sarah said...

That's a really cute outfit especially the plaid! But puh-lease Tavi, stay away from knock offs!!!

<3 Sarah

yoncto said...

oh-em-geez, that photo of you with yer hair blowing in the wind is GORGEOUS. and ignore that girl above me, she sounds like massie from the clique and we all know knock-offs are tha shizz ;D

ANYWAYZZZ GUESS WHAT i am back to blogging! yesiree, i am way too self centered to stop. or maybe it was just because i was really really bored when i was sick these past few days/week and was like fuck it i'll start again.

http://findyourownwayhome.blogspot.com

yeah. i don't know where these names come from. ever.

maddie said...

i love the last pic of you :) so pretty!

Style Magnet; Sara said...

Tights. I WANT.

Also, have you heard of Rachel Comey? I think her designs totally fit your aesthetic. You should give her a look-see.

My Daily Vintage said...

I love that editorial. Let's see the Sprouse-LV-esque dress!

and your outfit!

silentvisions said...

Seriously, so many things to say, but its to be written in a little "blog-comment-box" thingy which obviously hints that I keep it short. But not only do you inspire me stylewise, but you freakin crack me up. I laughed the most reading your posts than any others in....ever. And, to top it off, it makes me remember that fearless 12-year-old (sorry-you must get that a lot- so sorry.) I-can-rule-the-world-and-you're-a-dumb-adult mentality I once had (like the Gym Lady who made you take off your hat haha). Thanks for the reminder and keep your zeal. You actually make me ashamed to be 23, and nearly not 1/1785464967 as witty. Okay, creep-mode over. Sorry if I scared you, yes this was (and will be) my longest blog comment ever.
