oh god this tastes disgusting, did you cook it with love again?

Every time I put on these tights I tend to pair them with other black and white clothes. I was trying them out again and decided to look for more optical illusion-like patterns in my closet and found this pair of shorts (worn as a scarf, you can probably guess how that worked out) I bought this summer. The shorts aren't entirely black and white though, they have flowers scattered around so I decided to try to put flowers and optical illusions in one outfit.Eyesores are fun! So is warm weather. It's finally starting to feel like spring.
thrifted yellow tee worn as skirt and shorts worn as scarf. childhood closet skirt and shirt. celeste stein tights, mytights.com. slow & steady wins the race shoes.

Using clothing for purposes other than their specified intention is pure genius. As we are having sub zero temps. of late I plan to use my weird faux fur tube hat as a mini skirt. Very Edie. Although, I will most probabaly end looking a little bizarre.

I wish I had been this charming at your age; I was totally shapeless and awkward and, if memory serves, I owned a pair of white cowboy boots. Burn on me.

I haven't visted this blog in about 5 months now, due to an over-excessive amount of work i've received from my delirious teachers. Anyway the point of this post wasn't to complain, but rather to congratulate you Tavi! Since i last 'saw' you, you've matured so much and when i returned back to this blog just now, i became all confused because you looked so...grown up! You're an undeniably talented girl and will take the fashion world by storm, having already done so with the blogsphere.
Keep the creativity juices flowing Tavi and keep doing what you do best!
Liz :)

i lovee this outfit. great colors! you always manage to pull off all this crazy shorts for a scarf, skirt for a cape, shirt for a skirt combinations! i was wondering, could you explain to your readers how you transform these items and which kinds of shorts/ skirts/ skirts will work for the task? thank you very much. i'm not sure if this is an obvious or dumb question but i'd love to borrow a little bit of your creativity and apply it my own outfits.
much love. your blog is amazing!
