we were much better at those games in third grade

Today was a half day so Sophie and I bought lots of chocolate and went thrifting. I got this leather vest ($6, oh
thrift how I love thee~)Then we came home and had an intense Bueno Rufus competition. The pressure is beyond anything anyone could ever imagine. IT IS SO DIFFICULT GOING FROM SODA TO ICE CREAM. WHY WOULD ANYONE HAVE ICE CREAM WITH A BURRITO ANYWAY. THAT SOUNDS DISGUSTING.These jeans were passed down from Kirsty Lee to Rumi to..me. One perk of being small is that you get hand-me-downs! And little people know, when little people fight, we may look easy pickings but we've got some bite...
Thanks guys, heartz hearts heartzSophie took this one in an alley by a highway. I love how the vegetation doesn't look too different from the ones in our yard. Don't believe all suburban stereotypes! A fifth grader once told me she liked our yard because it was overgrown with weeds and looked like a magical place where trolls might dwell. Magical, hmm. Yes, yes I like that. *deep in thought*

Those jeans are freaking killer and look amazing with the Docs! Eeeek, you are my favourite blogger in the world.

Totally jealous of your $6 vest. You look gorgeous, Tavi. How, oh how, do you get the hairbob to stay in your hair? My hair is super straight and clips etc slide right out.

This is love.

Your look is reminiscent of an A. Wang slash hibitual mashup I saw in the pages of teen vogue.

-yes your jeans are very hibitual.

The vest is awesome, especially for $6! (and I love the Les Mis reference)

Milu said...

Hey, I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks, you rock :)
But anyway I just wanted to comment on that game! Bueno Rufus, omg, I'm so addicted now. I cannot pass level 5 though, too hard.
So yeah, thanks for that.
Oh, and you have an awesome sense of style and all.

Alexis said...

I'm in serious love with those jeans.

KD said...

AWESOME OUTFIT. I WANT THOSE JEANS. And super vest too! In NYC that would've been at least $25. :-(

Gabby said...

Bueno Rufus = my passion in life.

Claire said...

I love the $6 vest. The thrift store markup in my area is getting ridiculous. The jeans are quite epic as well.

$6! What a bargain. I adore searching stores and stalls for special finds like that, it makes it worth all the hard work and time.

The jeans and docs are a great combo. (Skirts are fun, but, randomly, I like the rare occasions when you wear pants. If you wore them more, I'd say the girl in the Bridge to Terabithia movie was totally ripping your look.)

lopi said...

You look like a fearless warrior girl from a sci-fi movie. I love you even more.

katherine mae said...

I love too see your style evolving, just when I think you're donning the greatest&craziest outfit, you'll overtrump it with the next one!
Keep 'em coming :)

Your best one yet! Everything looks great together. Just the right combo of tough and girly. PS: I bet am the oldest to comment here, I really should stop reading your blog during office hours, but can't help it love your style!

I mentioned your blog in my latest post because i really adore, it, hope you dont mind, I'll take it down immediately if you do.

the golden fairy princess said...

the docs look excellent, i've been needing to get some forever. i really want the pink ones but i'm a little skeptical on how much of a tool i would look, but we shall see. also, 'trolls' hahaha

julievee.blogspot.com said...

God, I think if I wore this I'd look ridiculous. How do you make this shit work Tavi? More importantly how do you make me wish I had black / bleached pants.

Grey said...

Hiya, i've been reading your blog recently. :) That game is so fun haha! I remember I used to play the cartoon network games all the time.

Sahel said...

A dreamer said...

i think the scrappier and more overgrown/'ugly' the garden the better. seriously, manicured gardens aren't that cool through photos.

Rhiannon said...

I think I might have said it before but you're so good at mixing tough and cute elements! I love the hair bow with the black leather and jeans.

fely-wely said...

you are amazing.

kirsty lee said...

aaah these look so good! haven't really been online in weeks and i come back to this. they look more fantastic than i could've imagined. just i wish i was wearing them!

Rumi said...

Ahahah ditto Kirsty but they look so good on you!! Glad they were able to make it to you, what a weird circuit they had to go through first.

Rad vest..I kind of made one last week by cutting the arms off a leather jacket I wasn't getting much use out of...trying to decide if I'm okay with the ragged edges. I'm way too quick to scissor up the non-scissorable.

Angry Alice said...

I love your reference to Les Mis with the song quote, Gavroche is my fav character probs. The musical also really inspires me in my fashion choices and i love how you probably used it without knowing it but it is cool Tavi xx
