i can tell that we are gonna be friends




Methinks the sporty Japanese minimalism part of the 90's are making tiny appearances in wedge/flat form and I am SO ON BOARD. Are you? Yes, you. ARE YOU ON BOARD?

From top: Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Y-3. Did I miss any other wedgey sandal flat palllllllls?
Real reviews coming after homework but basically: New York was way better than usual, London was worse than usual :( , Basso & Brooke was like Cushnie et Ochs with prints, and I love Sarah Mower for calling out House of Holland for being tacky and lazy.

Allie said...

Go girl you are younger than me and wonders every time you update your blog (sorry if you mind the term "minor") Actually, I admire you, you are so real and unique, hopefully one day be one of the greatest designers. .. Well, I hope also to me. I want to be fashion designer How many times have we heard that and are only in dreams? But I am convinced that it will, it felt yesterday when I heard a song on my player of Carla Bruni.
Anyway, I just wanted you to be aware of how wonderful you are to many girls (if not wise ...)
I admire you, I say again, and I envy you in a way, I wish I could travel well, New York London ... Well if you're cool.
Un Beso enorme!
A fan more ...

Ross said...

I was thinking the same thing. flats needs to be on the runway more often, models dont trip in flats. What did you think of Chris Kane?

Wikifashion said...

CC said...

clairegrenade said...

you simply CANNOT go wrong with minimalism

i don't care if one calls it bland

it's always refreshing

Spencer Tweedy said...

Doesn't it seem like the 90's in general are "in"? i.e. PAVEMENT IS REUNITING. eh?

Chelsea said...

I love this style. Probably because I am too lazy for heels 97% of the time. The white and gold are my faveorites.

This girl said...

Red Lipstick Style said...

I'll take the gold shoes, please! Adorable.

Hey, your writing style is just the best! You really have a way with words and (you must be sick of this) write sooo much older than your tender years!
Best!

Eunice Yooni Kim said...

Metra -Morgan Ashley said...

Those shoes are uniquely nice, I really like the first pair, but over all that type of street feel, is great. Its appealing to the the norm, just transformed into a set style.

hannahlizabeth said...

touche! i'm all for a pair of ridiculously high heels but if they come at the expense of models tripping on the catwalk - no thanks!

Lu said...

Love the gold/silver shoes. x

indigotangerine said...

i'm on board for any sort of fashion that doesn't involve 6 inch stillettos.
though in the second picture that models foot looks like it's in pain.

mardijane said...

woot woot for perfect sandals!! i love mid heels, heels that are short enough to wear casually, because i live in the country and we wear VERY casual clothes everyday i am always looking for subtle ways to be fashionable, and taller. go sandals!!

SO. said...

awesome!!!! i just think some of those models need a major pedicure..

crickets said...

OVER 1000 VIEWERS AT ONE TIME!! Tavi you internet beast!!! Can't say I am totally on board though, heels are forever in my heart.

WJ said...

Ooh, no. Me no likey these shoes. Six inchers way be on the way out but these don't do much for me either! Clunky and too awkward, but I know you can pull it off, if anyone!

L!MEgreen said...

I lvoe them!
they're uber cute and yummy looking

Catherine Blair Pfander said...

Oooh, I love. Not sure they're "me," per se...but I could consider reinventing myself for a few pairs of those.

Except the second one down...girlfriend needs a pedicure.

Alex said...

oh, calvin, how you speak to me. those CK wedges are amaaazing.

Stylish Goddess said...

Yeah wedges do give signs of happiness to discomfort feets!

P/S:I agreed with SO. The models are in desperate need of pedicure.They seemed to hurt their feet even they are wearing wedges.

Jenna said...

Umm those Calvin Klein's are giving me like a new reason to live.

Pearl Bhasin said...

Hey Tavi!

Are those bloody toenails in the second pic?? Those silver and black slip-ons must be a welcoming relief for the poor model...

BTW, you have been tagged. By me. ;) I love you style!

http://mayaruhi.blogspot.com/2009/09/kreativ-blogger-me.html

Rawk on, Tavi!

Es said...

I am officially on board.[Team Marc Jacobs]

BTW-Loving your blog. You are quite frankly the most glamorous 13year old I know.
Cheers,
Es

mechanic notions said...

sweet jesus, i love wedges.
my ability to prance about in heels is minimal at best.
ah, wedges,
how you provide such cuteness/sexiness and height without making my spine crack.

julie said...

oh my god, those poor feet!

ita darling. said...

The Blisters!, THE SCABS, the Bloody bloody toenails! Those poor models' little footsies! Fashion is a battlefield. Only the strong survive! OH but seriously... those are some great shoes. good post awesome tavi.

50two said...

to the person who said you cant go wrong with minimalism : snuggie.

rachel kathleen said...

LOVE the Calvin Kleins. Not so much the Marc by Marc Jacobs..

Chrissie said...

I am indeed on board.

ps. you are part of the reason I decided to make my own blog.
pps. its a bit like when I go skiing and there are all these little 5 year olds wizzing past me, and I'm just having trouble staying upright.

Jack Daniel said...

Wow, what's with the bleeding foot? It's not really hygienic!

But...nice post. :)

http://specials.msn.com/A-List/Tavi-Gevinson.aspx?cp-searchtext=Tavi%20Gevinson&FORM=MSNHAL

Jane 'Jongeun' said...

Makes me really want to buy a pair of Rocking Horse Shoes <3

D. Winfield Norman said...

Eh, me thinks it's more a regurgitation of Hussein Chalayan about two years ago. All the same, cool shoes :)

charo said...

Hi i´m from argentina and i usually read your blog. it´s great, i love your bedroom photos, and the beautiful and vintage clothes you use to reinvent the looks.
i´m a drawer and painter ( sort of).

coy colleen said...

Liza said...

I love these shoes! The chunkier the better eh? =)

Isabel said...

I kept seeing a pair of shoes that were exactly like this at Winners (a discount store) this time last year. Now I regret not buying them!

Lisa said...

I am sooo on board, not quite so sure about some of the feet, but am loving the shoes! :)

Ramon said...

Just thought I would drop by and say how utterly stunning you look in the latest issue of POP. Love the Ashish pom pom jumper!

afreshvintage said...

Nice shoes! I love your sense of style.

Christina's Shortcomings said...

I feel bad for the model in the second photo. Her poor peetsies are cut UP. Probs from those scary Nina Ricci no-heel monster booties.

L said...

woah those feet look so hurt i bet thats from the catwalk show shoes
http://wizzystyle.blogspot.com/

Malea said...

Yeah for tiny wedge flats. I'm
5'10", and biggy wedges make me look hot, sassy, and ginormous. Thanks for letting me know what to look for. I stumbled on here from the MSN focus on you. You're cool. I'm just a mom of four boys, who likes fashion, just can't focus on it right now. You are a fun little break in my wonderful world.

kat_IS_A_fashionISTA said...

oh darling these shoes are cute but bring back the 90's? one of the worst fashion eras ever? i think that harajuku fashion is somethink you should think about posting.

Isabelle said...

not suuuper big on minimalism... at all (color is your friend) but the scabby foot shoes are pretty sweet plus i think its pretty artistic... perfection with the ugly and all.... reminds me of frilly dresses with leather jackets.

matilda; said...

hey your blog is awesome

felt the need to comment because of the title haha thats a great song! white stripes? anybody? no? :-)

gilstrapdesigns said...

Great designs and they look really comfortable.

linzbritcrazed said...

How do you know about the minimalism trend of the '90s? You were either not alive yet or wearing diapers.

Jean said...

I saw your article in MSN...Congrats! I will be checking out your site often.

Brenda said...

I love the bloody foot. It shows how incredibly comfortable these must be.

MagsG82 said...

I feel like we're going to be seeing a lot of 90's looks across the board. I just bought a yellow slop dress at a thrift store and I know I'm going to be loving that for spring.

C said...

EEEWWW gross foot (of the silver shoe) I don't know how anyone can possibly say being a model is an easy job, they have to wear this killer looking shoes that end up being actually killer for their poor little feet.on the other hand I wish people didn't photograph not nice looking feet.haha. cool shoes tho.

Rivkah said...

those are some nasty feet. that's the part i was supposed to see, right?

love,
your loving sister

Martha said...

I really can't see what's so fancy about those shoes!

Faith said...

hmmm, am i right in thinking the title is a reference to the White Stripes?
and i love the '90s as well!

Sheik LeBeau said...

You stole the words right out of my mouth!

Totally inspired by Japanese Lolita "rocking-chair" shoes!

I want to wear some and just rock in them..if possible. >:3

chellbellz said...

Yes, those Gold Shoes are on point! I want them, and i need them in my life.

Hazel said...

MichelleLaBelle said...

I don't think these were the shoes that caused the blisters guys! And while there's no denying that heels add pizazz to any outfit, sometimes heels aren't suitable for oh let me think...uuh, going to the grocers?! I dig 'em. Modern hippy style, faar ouut duude. Tavi what size shoe are you?

Serinus said...

The "New Girl in Town", Tavi America's Gossip Girl realms fashion avenue.

gilstrapdesigns said...

Wedges have always been a great wear.

Milo&Me said...

Look at the picture with the bloody toes. I feel bad for models who have to stuff their toes into tiny shoes!
