kristen stewart's face is much prettier when covered in swedish fish

Comme how I love thee~ seriously can't wait to try this shirt out with a black, ruffly cage skirt Angie has in the works. Rei said the collection this shirt is from and what the cage skirt is inspired by was about "bad taste." It's one of my favorite collections ever so I guess I have bad taste? Fear the tackiness.This week's main dressing concern is comfort (so lame, I know!) as it's state testing week and I really just want to be able to get through them without having to adjust any CDs sticking out of my shoulders or coat hangers around my neck. Ew rationality ew being practical ew common sense.So! This week will be mostly inspiration, methinks. Not from Milan though, of course not. I woke up this morning croaking "ppaaaariiiissss."
I did like these shoes from Pollini though and can totally picture someone like Susie rocking them.And if you can find a cheap black dress and a bunch of colorful grain/pillar-like patches, you've saved yourself hundreds of dollars.

ew, what are the knit hand/arm warmers all about in the pollini look? I like that you wore the red headband, it's kind of unexpected

Wow! You look so cool, even when you dress down. The headband and skirt are terrific with the overall staunchness of this look. Impressive.

I think you would like the artwork of Henry Darger (if you haven't already seen it) - I've just posted about him if you're interested.

Cat's Meow said...

Tavi, I love your blog titles.

bobb said...

KD said...

I love both this outfit and Pollini.

Tru said...

Mimi Jolie said...

those designs are just too good!

Gwendolyn said...

I'm loving your outfit here and those shoes are pretty amazing. I've just started a blod so I was wondering if we could um "exchange links?" I think thats what it's called. Thank you xxx

August said...

Tavi, in my humble opinion, comfort should be paramount in fashion. As a decidedly fashionaly challenged individual who wishes he could wear a uniform everyday to take the guess work out of getting dressed (I express my individuality elsewhere), fashion really shouldn't hurt. Get cozy! It's not about getting your feet bound. i.e. those Parda (that's my knock off name for Prada) heels in your last post are awful purdy, but ouch! Can't we get an awesome new take on mocassins and sweatpants?

dust said...

to August............the only right way to wear a sweatpants is with the above mentioned shoes
Right?

Eva said...

hahaha! you dont have bad taste :) i love your outfit! really nice

BrittyDee said...

Hi! Girl you are still very young and you have an amazing sense of fashion! I dunno how do you do that, everyone thinks that you are cool! Sometimes when I talk with my best friend, he says that you are really cool and I say that I'm jealous but Is not true, It's just a joke. Well, this is not my first Blog, you can enter If you want it, I'll feel so glad! I guess that you must be busy or you have another things to do... I'm from Argentina, It was an important think that I forget to say. I'm sorry If my English isn't really good but I tried to do the best. Kisses!

moko said...

raymi lauren said...

Apple said...

Oh, bad taste, is there anything better?
However for this week you're forgiven, but i want to see the coat hanger within next monday!!!

P.S.
"P.S. i love you" is the most beautifully depressing movie ever.
P.P.S.
Hurray for swedish fish!
P.P.P.S.

HATEZ KIRSTEN STEWART - so yes, maybe I would like her too if she was covered in yummy gummies. Never seen Twilight or anything but just get the general impression that she's a douche.

Loving those heels - oh to dream that I could walk in them.

Julia said...

those shoes are soooo adorable!!!

UpsideDownSideway said...

Tavi, even though i'm like older then you by a year or two, i really admire your sense of style and radical fashion sense. not following the crowd, instead, leading it, like sarah jessica parker, is exactly what you do. thanks for actually making this blog, people could use some inspiration from unique people like you. :)

Julia said...

hey this is julia who bought your romper haha
(im really excited for it to come!!!)
but my mom has a facebook and got tagged in some pictures of her from the early 90s
and here is one

and she totally reminded me of you
she was so much cooler than i am!! haha

Christy said...

So it's your state testing week too? Wow, you magicky person, you!
I love the skirt- I tend to like the black and white color combo more than anything. I like keeping a mostly monochromatic colo scheme and then adding a bright splash of color somewhere so it makes it stand out the most.
