[insert something stupid conor said today here]

Today felt like spring and I LOVE it. What I wore, I basically just tried building the outfit around this printed H&M dress from Kirsty Lee. The outfit kind of reminds me of Blues Clues. When I was little I never understood why Magenta was the boy but that is what happens when you grow up amongst the narrow minds of SUBURBIA.I never did like that strange "Steve" guy though. I remember all the rumors that he quit the show to join a rock band and got tons of piercings, which I actually believed at the time. NOT COOL, STEVE. Why anyone would trade in a hanging out with a bunch of cartoon dogs that can't talk and the voices of little children screaming the answers to their overly obvious questions and a handy dandy notebook in for making music and having adoring fans is BEYOND ME.
And as I sit here typing about this Steve I see a commercial for the next ANTM season. I say we start a petition for Steve to try out. He could learn a lot from good ole TB. Oh Steeeeeve...

thrifted belt and skirt. gifted shirt and socks. american apparel circle scarf. childhood closet hoodie. slow & steady wins the race shoes.

Just in case you weren't being sarcastic. :)

Sondra said...

Cool outfit, I wish it were even vaguely spring-ish here. :(

Haha, my sister LOVED Steve when she was 3! I was pretty pissed myself when Steve "went to college" and that crappy Joe person started...grr...

Catchwa said...

Steve Burns first (only?) album is actually really good. Produced by the Flaming Lips if I recall correctly...

Emy said...

I love that outfit!!!!
I can't wait for the next season of ANTM, it starts soon right?

the late writings of me said...

Love how versitile the circle scarfs are and how you can also use it as a traditional scarf as you did here, though you have used it in other ways before.

Feeling the blues clues vibe as well, you look happy. guess the weather has rubbed off on you?

the pink sweater and dress somehow managed to be the exact same pink. I thought magenta was a girl? its not? is blue not a boy too?

Jackie said...

Wait wait wait...Magenta was a boy?! I always thought that the two were both girl dogs. That completely changes my perception of my childhood.

Anna Shapiro said...

fuck tavi,
now you have me all excited for spring.
ITS LIKE A MONTH FROM NOW.
damnit.

Willow Rain Jade said...

Heyey, your blog is such an inspiration.
I was always reading other people's blogs and I thought about starting my own. I am only fourteen and for some reason (I don't know why your age would actually matter to me) your blog inspired me.

Wow, you're so far away from me [me - central europe], but yesterday I felt spring too. Funny.

Fannah said...

Haha.. it's even worse over here because they keep repeating seasons here and Steve has this totally whining Dutch voice, yes, they actually synchronized it..

But nonetheless I love your outfit and I think you could think of pink and blue without reminiscing colored dogs.. or at least I can but I was never a real fan..

Anonymous said...

OMG, i love this outfit!!! =)

yeah steve definitely committed suicide. sad but kind of expected given his job...

maisie #1 and #2 said...

yay coloured tights! i have so many pairs but they just never get worn. i always default to black. it's nice to see someone who actually works their extensive tights collection.

maisie #1 and #2 said...

that was the other maisie (#2) btw

KEREN said...

This post just sent me running to Google for information on Steve. Pretty interesting, I must say.

Is Blue a girl?!?! That's scary..

neofelis said...

lovely outfit! you look cute.
i had that spring-ish feeling some days ago but this night it snowed again ;( i want spring!!

Tavi said...

*STEVE UPDATE* (get excited!)
Ok, from the looks of it Steve is still alive and kicking. He has a music website up. On Wikipedia it says he quit because he actually did want to be a musician, and shaved his head to kind of justify it-something he'd wanted to do before but the producers of Blue's Clues wouldn't let him

Oh yeah, Blue=girl and Magenta=boy.

Thanks for all the sweet comments <3

To me Blue was an anomaly. She had such a masculine demeanor. She was almost like the tinky Winky of Nickelodeon. ANd don't even get me started on Magenta "he" was more girly than BLue. The show chock full of subliminal messages.

Cute outfit.

cute outfit btw!

Isabel said...

O hai, AA circle scarf - I'm wearing one right now. Oh, how great minds think alike. And to the that above commenter who said something about Blues Clues being full of "subliminal messages"... Yeah, maybe about gender subversion/the social construction of stupid male-female colour stereotypes? Bitchez need to stop caring about the colour of a cartoon dog.

lucille said...

A dreamer said...

i always thought his drawings were amazing :D

i looove all the bubblegum pink and blue.

dianne said...

Steve totally didn't die, and his Album is actually pretty good, and he gets to hang out with the Flaming Lips which I thin kmakes him pretty much fucking cool.

Leila said...

Magenta's a BOY?? :O

The British Blue's Clue's Steve was pretty cool back in the day. He's probably not the same person now. The US one i've seen from when I was a youngin was kinda lame.

Now I remember, Blue was a girl.

Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper were always my favourite anyway.

wait a minute...
MAGENTA IS A BOY?????
news to me....

Patrice Ü said...

funny how this post evoked people to think of steve and blue`s clue`s :)
i LOVE ur blog and your sense of style
been following this blog for a while,
this is my 1st eva comment though (:

Tahda said...

steve did not commit suicide, but I've heard that rumour. I actually saw his band a few years back in Seattle. I was dying because I think I was the only one who knew him as Steve the guy from Blues Clues :)

His band was ok. but in no way was it heavy or trashy.

MAGENTA WAS A BOY? SAY WHAT? I knew Blue was a girl, but I thought Magenta was as well. Wow. I learned something today. I actually heard Steve went to rehab... idk. And, nice face in the first pic. =]
