awlivah

Despite waking up to a song that should probably make me want to wear the most girly stuff ever, this is what I wore today.The sweater was normal to begin with but throughout the day I pulled at the threads and tied them and now it looks like paper shredder residue (this is a good thing!)Not much inspiration lately. Time to go to Borders and read i-D and Lula and Vogue UK and then walk out without buying anything (Might have to get the Lula though-Alix's scans are great!)

i love that song, she looks so much like lara stone

also if you can you should check out AnOther magazine, Tilda Swinton's editorial is amazing

Amandine said...

I love your sweater.

Emmy said...

I too am guilty of sweater shredding, though as you said, it ends up looking better for it :-)

french music is so good, I really ought to get on itunes and find more!

KD said...

I love this outfit, especially the sweater. Lately I've been obsessed with "distressed" sweaters.

the sweater is great, it looks so comfy. there's a magazine shop in my city called... magnation... and they have those amazing futuristic-in-the-60s egg chairs and wireless internet so you can sit and read and read and sit for hours without getting harrassed or made to buy anything all the while using your laptop and reading blogs. so great. enjoy your illicit borders trip

I adore that sweater!!!!

Nadine said...

God you look sensational, Tavi. Outfit, hair, face . . . killer style.

(I liked Alix's scans too - especially the Hannah Murray pictures.)

Isabel said...

Oh wow! That sweater is so creative. What an excellent idea. With the leather vest you look kinda like a Vivienne Westwood punk circa the 70s.

hazel said...

hah! i go to Borders and read Pop and i-D too!

bobb said...

Great song you linked to Tavi. She made some great "yeh-yeh girl" style records in the 60's, though France Gall is my favorite yeh-yeh singer.

Marii said...

I follow for a moment and this is my first comment. I love the way you play with Fashion just following your desire. Keep playing that's the only way to enjoy design until the end ...

That sweater is so good. And I'm a huge i-D fan... I just wish it didn't cost so MUCH.

AFitz said...

Lol I'm pretty sure that Lula won't be available onour humbled shores for a few more weeks - i too am waiting impatiently.

When I lack inspiration, I read alice in wonderland or look at takashi murikami and jeff koons upside down

KEREN said...

Hmm, I do like that sweater. Barnes and Nobles is my place to read and leave without buying anything, other than a coffee and fattening sweets from the attached starbucks. :)

suzette said...

holy crapppp be a little less epic plz

that sweatery thing is so cool with the pulled threads, it makes it like 283905832905 times more amazing.

oh and i dig your new banner.

sarah said...

another stellar ensemble! love the vest over the sweater. you look like you might bully me for my milk money...

lily m said...

I love when sweaters get torn where did you get that one? It looks soft!
oh and awesome song he he ha ha

Crystal said...

"Time to go to Borders and read i-D and Lula and Vogue UK and then walk out without buying anything"

Isn't that the truth. Makin' a Barnes and Nobles trip tomorrow to read the new Russh. I may or may not buy it.

Ashford said...

Where is the sweater from? I like it shredded and non-shredded.

dani d. said...

damn, girl! you've got wicked style!

i was trying on clothes at the salvation army yesterday (duh! family day, 50% off!) and this little woman summons me over with her crooked little finger and says, "don't listen to your friends, wear whatever you want! you're young, you have it all!" needless to say, i was so touched i nearly cried.

peeps my blog, though it's only just fresh! http://dani--d.blogspot.com/

Eliza said...

I love the sweater!!

chloe said...

Moi Je Joue - obsessed with that song right now!

dandysocpic said...

I'm also in love with the sweater, and the leatha [ala stella] is awesome.

Adore this outfit, kind of delicate punk.

The Girl said...

I love pulling on threads in woven shirts to make long stripe holes. I might up date some lame sweaters like you did here.

I don't know if I said this before but you are linked on my blog.

<3 the girl.

the angry hedonist said...

haylin said...

lucille said...

ohvandalism said...

Rebeccafashion said...

OMG! You're the cutest I've ever seen!
Love your style, when I was 12, I didn't look so pretty as you do now.

Unfortunately we don't have that many great, fashionable kids in my country (The Netherlands).

xx Rebecca

I was amazed to know that you're only 12, but already so stylish. I was into those weird big chunky neon necklace when i was 12....

Your sweater looks cute after you pull the threads, creative! and it looks comfy too.

Kristina said...

this is the first outfit I've seen in a while that I really love

Although on a totally unrelated note, I must say, I really admire how you sometimes stand up to the other kids at school. It reminds me of myself when I was your age.

stealthnerd said...

This is one of my favorite outfits that you've worn!

Miss Kar said...

love what happened to the sweater

sas said...

oh man, you are so creative!

Shin said...

I like your leather jacket...such a great find. I also go to bookstores and read everything I want and never buying anything. The only magazine that I buy every month is Teenvogue but I'm not a subscriber because sometimes I don't like who's on the cover.

WendyB said...

I really like what you did with the sweater. Creative!

Trains and Sewing Machines said...

I love what you've done to that sweater, it looks great!

Wanderlusting said...

Beautiful sweater, really. Romantic and disheveled!

chelsey ~ ☆ said...

Sweater looks fabulous!

They're closing down the huge Borders on Michigan, though! It was in the paper today. I'm hoping it gets rescued somehow, it's a block away from where I work and so convenient.

Julia said...

oooh, this is one of my favorite outfits I've seen. those floral docs are just the greatest, and 'distressed' sweaters look like the most fun thing ever to wear. ramble ramble.

Lucy said...

OMG you are sooo cute. You remind me of me before the world of conformity.Stay that way darling!

Rhiannon said...

Ooh, the pretty sweater and the tough vest . .. wonderful!!

Syana said...

i know you probably heard it a million times, but I wish I had half the style you have when I was your age! love the outfit xxx

The Stylish Wanderer said...

you totally look like a little woman in that last picture :)
youre not cute anymore Tavi! :P

Ok... too many smilie faces. >.<

yoncto said...

neofelis said...

amy@flyingakite.blogspot.com said...

I love the sweater, and the whole outfit really! You are so amazing. Full of style, and class. If only there were girls around me as amazing as you! You'd make a fun, and interesting friend :P


Talk to you soon Tavi!
