When Laura and Kate of Rodarte mentioned a birthday gift in an email I didn't know what to expect. They're awesome crazy.I mean GEEZ, the Star Wars stickers and Quentin Blake card and pink ribbon would've been enough!
Best birthday present ever. EVER. It's all downhill from here. It really is.
It's super super delicate.. I think I can only wear it if I go to FW. Or meet Rei.
Oh, there she is.
Seriously though, can I completely lose it now?!?!

Look! I'm your crazy drunk uncle at your cousin's wedding! "YOU KNOW, OF ALL THE PEOPLE I'VE EVER KNOWN, LISA IS PROBABLY THE LAST I'D THINK WOULD GET MARRIED. I MEAN, LOOK AT HER! HER MOM AND I HAVE HAD MANY CONVERSATIONS ABOUT HER NOSE, HOW MAYBE WE COULD PAY FOR HER TO GET IT DONE. AND HER TEETH, TOO. SHE'S NOT THE MOST LADY-LIKE LADY, EITHER. I REMEMBER WHEN YOUNG LISA WAS JUST A TODDLER, AND ASKED, 'DAD? CAN I KILL MOM AND MARRY YOU?' AND WHEN SHE POOPED HER PANTS AT COLLEGE GRADUATION, AND HAD TO ASK THE GUY NEXT TO HER TO GET UP TO GET HER DIPLOMA FOR HER. AND WHEN SHE GOT SO MAD WHILE WE WERE ALL OUT TO EAT THAT SHE THREW UP ON HER SISTER! AND HERE SHE IS GETTING MARRIED! I MEAN, TALK ABOUT A CHANGE OF SCENERY, HUH? AM I RIGHT? NOW WHO WANTS TO DANCE WITH PAPA?"
These pictures do it NO justice. None. I tried doing detail shots but then remembered they have an epic website with better pictures taken with a 543295834 pixel camera. So go chk it like the people in the Check Into Banking commercial (anyone? bueller?) while I try to remember what I did ever that made me deserve this. Checking...yeah, I AM UNWORTHY.
OH man. I don't even KNOW, GUYZ. This is too crazy! But the perfect thing to come home to after a schooly day at school. More than perfect. Sweet jesus.
BRB, CRYING OF HAPPINESS.
What a crazy day.. I love it. The spine in back, the colors, all the textures... I can't even talk about it. Agh!
Time to TRY to sleep.

I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW AMAZING THAT CARDI LOOKS!!!!
I AM SO ENVIOUS I MADE UP A NEW COLOR (green wasn't good enough)
MOST AMAZING PRESENT OF ALL ETERNITY!

Mouse said...

I always think the best birthday presents are the things we wouldn't think to get for ourselves. In this case, it's the thing we wouldn't even *dream* of getting. What a fantastic gift. Couldn't go to a better girl (or is it woman now that the bm is coming?).

Sidenote: I'm sad to see that you cleaned out your Twitter followers (I was one), but it's perfectly understandable.

In-tree-gue said...

Oh my god, i have no words. I just read this while in my orchestra concert and let out a really loud yelp. This is too much, really. No words.

Alice X said...

O M G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are sooo freaking awesome and lucky to receive this from the rodarte sisss. they are beyond amazing and this is just mesh competely amazing destroyed goodness.

Emilie said...

AHH Tavi that is such an incredible present and again, echoing many people above, a well fitting (oh yes puns) and deserved gift. Plus it's already obvious you are going to where it so awesomely. Happy belated thirteenth!

Nice and Shiny said...

Dude that is more than crazy... whatever the word is you can let me know.

Wierd I was thinking about your Rodarte tights the other day, I think my brainwaves had a hand in this miracle. Just jokes, I can't take the credit for THIS ONE.

Enjoy that slice of heaven, the spine on the back is the best detail EVER!!

You are quite the lucky teen!

When I was 13 I got a pack of gel pens and thought I was the coolest thing there was. Hell, on my 18th I got cupcake bandaids. Livin' the life.

Kathleen said...

You are seriously the luckiest girl on the face of Earth.
I'm sure you already know that, though!
13 and already receiving free gifts from designers! That should resonate pretty deep.

Jennifer L. said...

Oh Tavi, when I was 13, all I got was a floral lycra mid-riff top and a matching tube skirt from Sportsgirl (slightly naff Australian brand!) Lucky you!

Happy B day Tavi!
Ahaha, you know what? i'm a student at central st martins in london, i'm studying Fashion communication and journalism, and a few days ago, i talked about your blog in front of my class, saying" shit, there is a girl on internet, she s so young, and she's better than us all! More creative, more cool, more cutting edge, more everything! and we are fucking ten years older than her, and we don't even have her level of fashion culture!"
Well, i'm sure you will get the coolest job ever when you will be older! I also have a blog named "the newspaper of bad taste" ( i'm obsessed with bad taste becoming good taste), so if you have time to check :
