it is for some reason amusing to spenc i was so thrilled by the tattoo in my botan rice candy but why wouldn't i be it is a giraffe in an AIR BALLOON

The other day a lovely package from Kristin at IKO IKO (totally hitting up on the next LA trip) arrived and ugh, so much perfection. These beautiful floral leggings and tote, which incidentally both match this collage I made some time ago perfectly!
PHOTO COURTESY OF GRACE.
OBLIGATORY CREDIT IS OBLIGATORY. HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY, GRACE.
Anyway, yes, I wore them right away to see Star Trek (for the second time, natch) with a couple friends and eat massive amounts of ice cream sandwiches and cheerios. I changed into this after the movie but tried to dress kind of futuristic going to see it, just to show some respect for the GQMFs. Wish I'd gotten a better picture of the shirt I cut off a thrifted dress; it's an easy fabric to shape so I tried making it all spacey.
I actually took these today but whatevs.
Uh, that was relevant.
I'm sorry Christopher Kane, I rather like florals!
The turban is so epic, I bought it that day at this antique store which I've been visiting over and over again for seriously months gazing at it. Finally we were on the store's street and I just ran ahead those slowpokes and into the store and bought the turban without thinking twice. Cost me 24 bones, more than I like to spend on clothes but I couldn't find another turban that even came CLOSE to how great it is in any store or online and I JUST CHANTED TORAH GODDAMNIT so...that is my logic. Will get a picture next time I wear it which will be very soon.
So, clockwise from upper left: vintage turban, thrifted shirt, vintage Docs via eBay, childhood closet dress, Rowena Sartin tote and leggings from IKO IKO.
These gifts came in this lovely fabric bag that I tied in a bow and wore today, which brings me to my next obligatory life-altering story of hanging out with Spencer! K SO, first we were good little //alt// kids and went to the music store and bought records (I would be pretentious and name them but I feel hipster enough having just lugged around 2 Lomo cameras and buying a copy of The Virgin Suicides [writing that here will surely bring an interesting new readership to this blog, probably not unlike the middle-aged man that asked me if me or my mom put the bow in my hair while in the checkout line at Walgreens. Srsly gtfo.] so ALLOW ME TO REFRAIN from telling you about my Juno-esque tastes [still don't know if I consider this good or bad] and just spam this post with parenthesis and brackets and run-on sentences instead.) I think he was talking.
Then we came back to my house because I need my Nesquik and to show him my shrines (for what I will not say because restraining orders on geniuses are not fun) and went to a few other stores. Borders, Walgreens, the antique store where I got my turban to try on pretty hats, and a fun local store.
We bought postcards and kid drugs! Razzles, giant pixie stick, that candy where you can actuallyeatthewrapperomg, and candy cigarettes.I HAVE A PIXIE STICK. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
....I LOOK LIKE MIKEY FROM RECESS. YOUR ARGUMENT MIGHT BE VALID.
So many cameras! Ok we're kind of hipsters just shut up T_TI may fail at having a brain but Spencer fails at something much more vital to living.
Is that one cent difference REALLY necessary? Just had to share.
We talked about teh interwebs, blogs, you, your mom, your cat, school, summer, camp, when people from school start going to your summer camp, writing, fashion, Mama Rei, music, Anna being obsessed with The Pixies, teevee, fetuses with laptops, Dave Eggers, and, once again, your mom.
CASE IN POINT: Florals are awesome, so is Spencer! Today was full of lol and win.

Spencer Tweedy said...

AND FYI - I really should learn to not fail at life (aka make the Spock sign). AND DAMNIT TAVI, THANKS FOR GETTING ME ADDICTED TO NESQUIK.

hazel said...

You guys are the coolest people ever ever ever.
OOOoooOOO what records did ya buy?
DAVE EGGERS. love that man.
The Virgin Suicides is a lot better than the movie, tell me what you think when you finish it.

laia. said...

A+

aandhblog said...

A few things:

uno. i'm glad someone else finds spock as essential to life itself as i do [not that i've seen the movie five times and am currently atthisverymoment watching an episode of the original series about an entire society comprised of 1930s chicago gangsters or anything...]

dos. FLORAL LEGGINGS OMGZ. (enough said)

tres. officially longest comment ever. apologize profusely for verbosity.

live long and prosper!

bobb said...

Sounds like a great day. And I second Hazel's question - what records did you buy? - always one of my favorite questions. Now I'm singing "Iko Iko".

Arabelle said...

IN BEFORE "OH YOUR BOYFRIEND IS SO QT"

<3

Emilie said...

Looks like wicked fun and yeah Spencer should really learn that it's pretty essential. In addition, those floral leggings are quite rad.

AFitz said...

OH YOUR BOYFRIEND IS SO QT

I promptly threw my copy of The Virgin Suicides in the trash after coming across gratuitous n-bomb usage. Boooooooo!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

the one cent is necessary for marketing purposes.

Fashion_Loving_Stylist said...

Take of photo of the two of you together next time. Love Lomo cameras - the texture of the photos are amazing.

Niki said...

that is a lot of cameras. you guys are like tiny matching hipsters. . . now i am curious as to whether you are the same height as well. as a candy aficionado I recommend trying japanese soda candy which makes you foam at the mouth (in a good way). you can't eat the wrapper though.

is that your turban in the picture in the tree? cos' it looks like a turban. an EPIC turban.

Hanna said...

SO sorry I missed your message. We should commiserate asap, child.

PS I adore you.

MM said...

that turban is so gorgeous , I could just die.

I love florals! Last time I saw a vintage chacharel floral dress I was with my mum, and she literally kicked me off the store, saying that "it was OLD".
Oh, mothers.

Belial said...

Farren said...

Ashley said...

Florals are nice, but they are kind of ubiquitous now. I did a post on a couple of floral pieces I liked but now everyone and their dog are wearing them. oh well whatever.
PS- Star Trek IS the best movie ever and I'm going to see it for the second time with my bf this weekend.

Kat said...

That kid's cute dude. If I were like thirteen I'd probably be crushin' on dat. Straight up yo.

Oh, and The Virgin Suicides is one of the best books I've ever read.

Maria Confer said...

Damn, I need to go buy some candy cigarettes. I haven't had those in years and some lick-a-maid. Do they even still make that. Hmmm.

Little Monarch said...

oh hells you two make me uber jels. look at you you are like a match made in heaven. i can tell you are meant to be BFFs <3

mademoiselleglitter said...

you guys are mad cute!! not so sure about the florals, though, i like myself some stripes! :D but anyway, the virgin suicides is a really great read!!

Isabel said...

You have definitely convinced me to hunt thrift stores high and low for a pair of floral leggings. You just look so damn good in them.

But come on now, I think my Pixies obsession could rival just about anyone's...

Fannah said...

outfit adorable. with a french accent, that is. i love your comments. they're so secretly genius and i have to stop that word.. genius! last time: genius! ok.

Suzie Homewrecker said...

"I HAVE A PIXIE STICK. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID." I think I must carry one at all times and use it as a trump card to win all debates. Great idea!

f said...

that kid looks just like you!?

KD said...

$24 for such an amazing turban?!? That's bargainous! Then again, I live in Manhattan, so my bargain-o-meter might be a little out of wack. Amazing amazing amazing outfit!

Jack McCready said...

You and spencer are WIN.

Jack McCready said...

P.S. I APPROVE OF THE FLORALS TAVITRON!

kasmslo said...

HOLD UP. Comments up in here are bewildering my in denial and impenetrable perspective.
So that is your boyfriend?
...
D:
...
As in ~*~*~boyfriend~*~*~?
Well, it is pretty legit that you two would be cute together.
Like those little prepubescent kids on Hel-Looks who have persona carbon copies and hold hands while looking more or less so appallingly cute and make my brain pretty much malfunction and disintegrate (in a good way).

Tavi said...

You guys are killing me with these comments! We are not twins or brother/sister or ~*~together~*~. I am married to ARABELLE, remember? Anyway, kindly run along now. No comme for you.

AFitz said...

jokes on you, i only want mcqueen. and yamamamoto. and comme. wait- dammit.

Tavi said...

Anna, you are the exception.

erin said...
