Oh, Tavi. Keep being brilliant. But you don't need much encouragement to do that, do you? Happy birthday to your blog!

Jacques Tiffeau! He's the one you were thinking of. I got the coat delivered today and I'm a little scared of the arms. They look like my hair!

Congratulations on your one year! Hehe so glad you mentioned your rei rap, it never fails to entertain me. I understand how your dad couldn't stop singing it, it's so catchy that sometimes I go to sleep at night with "rei kawakubo, h&m" repeating itself in my head :)

Lily said...

Lisa said...

Hey Tavii! you're such an old soul! I love the things you hit at. So much strengh. Futre perfect.

olga d said...

i feel like you're my awesome grandma who i steal clothes from, because she's the only person i know who wears my size, and has amazing style. and at the same time my little cousin who i just want to take creepy pictures of and post them on my facebook, and be like "hey, check out my cousin. isn't she awesome". and stuff.

Paige said...

tavi that was awesome. love your blog, your style-sense is so bananas, it makes me want to start wearing colors again.

AFitz said...

:) yaaay happy one year. You deserve all the hype :)

Chelsea said...

Happy blogday...birthblog?
When you were talking about designers with just one look I could't stop picturing herve leger.
Would much prefer the cut up childrens clothing.

bobb said...

Happy Birthday to Style Rookie!. A great video too. You have been both an inspiration to me with your wit, knowledge and unique perspective on things. I was thinking while watching your video that a year ago I would not have known what you were talking about, as I had never previously followed the fashion world. I had never heard of Rei Kawakubo or Alexander McQueen.

You have mentioned that your Bat Mitzvah is coming up.

bobb said...

A friend recently sent me a link to a couple of books she thought I might be interested in, I think you might be interested as well.

*The Zip Up* said...

Happy blogiversary! I thought it was really interesting how you compared Balmain to Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto, who belong to this sort of modern but timeless category, but I think Issey Miyake would fit in nicely too. I think that their timelessness has to do with this sharp Japanese aesthetic and Balmain makes clothes to appease to celebrities and continue this momentum the label has been getting through editorials. I don't know, just some randomness I thought I'd spew.

Jay said...

happy blogiversary! loved your rant, u never fail to be anything less than epic. xo

jamie clare said...

happy birthday tavi! you are by far wise beyond your years.

i agree with your opinion that balmain is not really furthering fashion this season, although i'm madly madly in love with his collection. and you definitely make me think about what i'm wearing and what i'm buying and what i'm saying with my outfits, which in reality is probably less trashy party-girl than you might think? hahahaha. ;]

nothing but love

Estellee said...

Sorry for my stupid english..

Isabel said...

Happy Blogversary, keep it up! You are the most amazing little lady out there.

The Weekness said...

Happy blogiversary! Your package is in the post my dear, with a wee surprise as well...dum dum DUM!

Keep up the ranting, it's always nice to hear people thinking about the whats and whys behind fashion, not just "ooooh, pretty new sparkles!" Although that is definitely still sometimes in order ;)

happy first blogversary, style rookie!

lauri said...

yeah what you said about Balmain is totally true, i mean i like the pieces but there is no difference. Even with the jackets you cant tell which one is Spring 09 or Fall 08. Happy NotReallyyourbirthday Birthday

Vanessa said...

Congrats on the 1st anniversary, Tavi! This was adorable!

maddie said...

Mary said...

Emily said...

joey said...

i love your outfits, i have a feeling like your going to go far in the industry. your a miniature warhol mixed with wintours. ;]

i loved your video, i love rants.

Nicole said...

happy blogaversarie!!
(thats the thing with made up words..you dont always know how to spell them.)

Ana said...

that was great. congrats on your first anniversery!

haha i love that you make noises instead of adjectives. all my friends talk in noises and i completelely understand them when they just go "ahhna bluhhblahgrahhhbels"

Ana said...

by the way i agree about balmain. the whole 80's revival is annoying me because how many times can you do the same thing?

Rosé Magritte said...

Ah, yeah I tend to ramble a lot too, but I think yours are more bearable and consistent. Glad to hear you're not thinking of stopping any time soon.

Shin said...

Oh Tavi! Happy Birthday! I watched the entire video and couldn't get over how adorable and sweet you are. I enjoy your comments about the fashion industry and I think it'll be interesting to see you be a part of it! xxoxoxoxxoxo

nyparisienne said...

Happy Bday to you Blog! I think you're great! Amazing style and your clothes and sense of style truly do communicate without having to speak a word! You will go far..keep up the great work!

Pretentious b said...

that was the longest video i've even watched of someone trashin balmain. i loved it.
b mi syster plz!

-sarah

Nice and Shiny said...

HA! About your dad rappin about Rei. Love it
And I agree with the Balmain part. Designers that crap out the same thing collection after collection are more concerned with the marketability rather than the expression of the actual clothing
Although some people just want the wearable clothes, they arent concerened with trying new things WHICH IS FINE, but personally I get bored...

Anywho, loved the video. I love it when you post videos. I love it when you post, period. Stay awesome
Happy blog b-day, and when's your b-day by the way? I've always wondered... in April I'm assuming?

Ttyl, congrats again about hanging in here so long and you are NOT an old blog hag! lol. Your blog is always fresh and has exciting stuff

Doll said...

agree about balmain. at first i was falling for it but then comes his fall winter 09/10 collection which is just the same old stuff and i feel its unimaginative and boring...
love your blog and your true individuality.

Aysha's Rabbit Hole said...

HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
I HOPE THAT I ACHIEVE AS MUCH AS YOU HAVE WHEN MINE HITS BIRTHDAY 1.

BY THE WAY, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR BALMAIN CRITIC! IT IS BECOMING A MONOTONOUS LOOK.. AS MUCH AS I LOVE THE 80'S .. MAYBE THEY ARE JUST SCARED TO CHANGE WITH THE CRISIS AND ALL.. WHO KNOWS..
LETS HOOPE HE WIPS UP SOMETHING ELSE FOR NEXT SEASON.

Pan said...

I haven't been reading your blog for all that long, but whenever I check it, I always enjoy what you've posted. The way you dress and the way you think, for a 12 year old and as a person in their own right, amazes me. You are actually so cool and what you're doig with your life and achieving in it (not that I know all that you've achieved, but things like getting that awesome t-shirt made etc gives me that impression) So yeah, I just thought I'd say that you're pretty awesome in my eyes and I admire you. And now I've realised that I sound like a right weirdo whos written a really long comment...sorry. I might just delete all this..no I can't..god sometimes I just wanna slap myself..

Hannah said...

Hi Tavi, long time reader, first time commenter- have been lurking in the shadows. Anyway happy birthday to your blog! Hope you got cake.

Mary Pailler said...

Hi!
Congrats to the wonderful blog, love the video and blah blah.. I do agree with you and everyone commenting on Balmain's recent 80's-inspired collections, but huh, let's not forget that fashion business is still a business. When that hard-to-pronounce Decarnin took over designing for Balmain, the house was in financial coma, so I think he's just forced to keep commerce in mind while designing the clothes - and those collections, well, they just sell well.

Christine said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! :D hope you won't stop ever ;)

I can NOT.
You're so smart haha,
smarter than me, and you seem much more mature.

I dig you.

style-magnet said...

I so agree about Balmain. The first season with the rocker-80s-glitter look was killer and then... it came again. And again. And again.

And congrats on your anniversary! It seems like it's been a crazy ride AND GIRL YOU DESERVE IT YO.

thriftalina said...

You´re a celebrity already... it´s amazing. Xoxo from Brazil.

Kathleen said...

YOU NEED TO DO THIS (videos) MORE!
I swear, you are the most eloquent 12 year old I have heard speak with my own two ears!
Although with the Balmain "look" you suggest, just like Lagerfeld and even Tom Ford have been quoted, the "look", the "image", and the "lifestyle" is what sells. Balmain has been around for a while now and established their own appeal that reaches in a spectrum of more than just clothing... and I feel that is what makes them successful as a business and possess such a loyal market.
Just my two cents into the whole discussion.

bluelolitus said...

why are you so amazing

alice kim said...

you're so cute. i wish i were as cool as you when i was 12/i wish i was friends with someone like you when i was 12!

you'll do great things in the future!

Olguita said...

Hey, I'm serious, you are awesome and I think your blog is special and different to the other ones. I follow a lot of fashion blogs and I have learnt very much about them,but I have never seen a blog like this,you can give so much from your posts. you will have a lot of success in this world because you are very good. Happy birthday from spain!!

La-Mode-Défile : Anne-Julie said...

I'm interested in fashion since not uch time so I've never found Balmain that boring but now i can see that the two last winter are quite the same. But I do really like the creations.

!oh I was forgetting....
Happy birthblog

La-Mode-Défile : Anne-Julie said...
