laughing apparently means make croaky spongebob noise and grin in an unsettling manner

I was quite the happy camper when I received an awesome package from Yokoo the other day. It has ridiculously great stuff, including purple patterny granny dress and nightgown-y things and MORE plaid and tartan (yes, you heard me. I need to grow a million more bodies, then I can wear all of my plaid at once and also maybe Neutral Milk Hotel will write a song about me called Billion Headed Annoying Preteen Angsty Girl That Writes Dorky Blog And Is Slave To Rei. Hiiii Jeff Mangum.)Today I wore two of the things from the package along with my mom's old red skirt which is pretty much the softest thing evar. One is this epic ruffly blouse and the other is the cape that makes me feel like a Thanksgiving Witch when I wear it (whatever that's supposed to be). It's actually an apron but too long on me to be one. I'll have to grow a few more bodies and then I can wear all my capes at once and Neutral Milk can write another song. Hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk.One kid at my school said I looked like Little Red Ridinghood. Um SURE if Lil Red changed her name to Little Navy With Red Leaves And Beige With A Hint Of Tan Flowers Riding Hood. This kid's knowledge of fairy tales (and the color spectrum) (and the difference between solids and patterns) (and the difference between things with hoods and things without hoods) is as pathetic as my facial expression on the picture below.This facial expression indicates that a chipmunk has gone missing and quite possibly might be in my mouth, and that I think I have telekinetic powers and that if enough childhood anger is focused this tree will unleash itself from its roots and carry me over to New York just in time for mid-February.
Fashion week is coming up, my friends... Adorable patterns, I c u thar.
Most of the people at school have stopped making fun of my outfits (with the exception of the Fairy Talely-Challenged child mentioned above) because they feel threatened. Not by me of course-my strength is about that of the hair on the chipmunk inside my mouth-but by the fact that carpet netting, coathangers, and combat boots could all easily injure someone if the wearer were to decide injury was necessary. Which it won't be, unless you give me 10 bucks and a free slice of pizza. Say cheese!I talk way too much. Thank you Yokoo!

blouse and cape, yokoo. mom's old skirt. h&m tights. slow & steady wins the race shoes.

I don't think I would've been brave enough to wear those outfits back when I was in middle school, so kudos to you, Tavi. You're really inspiring!

Completely gorgeous. Sterling use of apron. I think everything looks better in the snow (cause I don't get snow round these parts), and yes I may be fairy-tale-challenged as well but my first reaction to the first picture was, ahem, littleredridinghood . . .

Trains and Sewing Machines said...

I love the color of your skirt!

Alecca Rox said...

what's wrong with little red riding hood?

little red riding hood rocks actually: goes into dark forests, has encounters with evil wolves and wears a hood as if she cares.

o dear tavi.. start getting used to it, not many people get the point of dressing differently. forgive them:) (and keep doing it!)

I feel like I must go out and find a cape. Right now. But I think I should like one with a hood. A grey one.

Now I won't be happy until I have one.

Stop carrying chipmunks in your mouth. They don't like it. They told me to tell you.

I love the cape! It does resemble Little Red Riding Hood, but your awesome pose in pic 3 turns you into some sort of super chipmunk hero :)
