to be stuck inside a margiela boot with the superficial blues again (insert slashes where needed)

Today was a great day, the kind where your juice matches your skirt!taken by ella
Karoline printed a tee in a metallic copper and I love it (as evidenced by my awkward expression, obvz). This hairbow was cut off an old dress...skirt is my mom's sweater with lots of pins in it...vintage Docs from eBay. Yep.
Went to a consignment shop and got this haul for $8 (honestly not that much of a deal but I am used to thrift/mooching techniques). I do love me some shoes that both fit AND are attractive so no complaints there. Seriously, how many stores make epic shoes for 9 year old feet?
Also if your eyes sting easily I advise you do not picture the pants I got with the tank top I wore yesterday. Try not to run into me on the street the day I wear that combination, either.
obesity and speed tee and striped tank. leather skirt from jen. american apparel tights. yokoo scarf.
The print on this tee is BEYOND, GUYS. IT IS BEYOND.
Random notes.
This brown hat is vintage and reminds me of chocolate. I've had it for forever but haven't worn it for fear I would start seeing everything as chocolate if I did.
O i c u thar, plasteec skul. Seriously, easiest DIY EVER. I mean, unless you don't have a vacuum molding machine lying around. That's a bit rough. But if you do, just add metal fastener.
When I get tired of this veil I tie teeny ribbons in it.
I don't know why I've been chopping all these huge bows off nice dresses? Anyway, they make good necklaces as well as hair...enhancers? OH, accesories. Oopsydoops, recovering from the weekend.
Best 6.50 I've ever spent. Batman sunglasses bought locally...there wasn't a brand on the glasses but my wife Belle somehow has the same ones. We are on the same brainwaves, swearz.

Amazing outfit Tavi! Just how I pictured that skirt would look paired up rad, and with O&S especially! Those striped trousers are going to be worked in sooo perfectly.

Kerrin said...

the tee in that metallic shade is goooood. futuristic. & I thought you wore the shirt inside out when I saw the pic at first. seriously hahaha. :>

McCall said...

chloe said...

Wow Tavi you inspire me in so many ways it is obscene :) That is like a girl on Facehunter from Ukraine or something. Is the peach metallic spacegirl tee available for purchase? I would pay twice the price for it.

WizardFace said...

Holy effin' penguin poo, it's a giant necklace of woolen donuts! Must... steal... while... Tavi... sleeps... O____O

I've been reading your blog for a while, but I only got an account today and... I'm kinda a silent reader most of the time but like... woolen effin' donuts! Need I say more?

I have been following your blog for so long now, and I started my own just a bit ago, not really fashion, just notes about myself.


I know a bunch of other neat people have told you how lovely and innovative you are, but I really do think you are far more creative than half of people on earth, and you probably supersede most alien life forms too..

Any who, i just though I'd drop a note!

You're one of those people who gets cooler and cooler every single time I look at yoouu.
I love the big loopy chain thing... I want to do something weird with it, I don't know what though.

Isabel said...

Oh my gosh, those batman sunglasses are killer cool and I might actually kill for a pair of those black and white saddle shoes. Good thing your feet are smaller than mine!!

Sprinkle said...

DEAR TAVI,
onceeee upon a time, sprinkle was visiting her favorite EPIC blogs, and realized how much TAVI owned at LIFE. and then she realized that she and tavi NEEDED to be sisters. So, dearest Tavi, the moral to the story is, WILL YOU BE MY ADOPTED LITTLE SISTER? I will make you clothes and send them to you in the mail, and you can be as awesome as you already are, and we can just live our lives only as supercool relatives. And Betsey Johnson can be our mom. KTHXBYE.
xoxo

PS-seriously, cupcake, you must consider. We'd rule the world. Ok. :)

Ana said...

Eliza said...

Mary said...

I know at least one other person has asked, but is the metallic tee available to buy?

KD said...

I love all the outfits posted here and those THRIFTED SHOES!!!

bobb said...

Another great title takeoff on a Dylan lyric:)

The Queen of Hearts said...

If you are legit 12 years old, I want to adopt you because you are too amazing. I hope my daughter is as clever as you are.

And if you aren't, you still fucking rock because you aren't going to age like the rest of us bitches. Love it.
