take a walk on the punky funky nerdy wild side

I.AM.SO.EXCITED.FOR.THIS.MOVIE.This was my tiny tribute, worn yesterday. Mainly greens, browns, and yellows, and then textures and shapes that remind me of friendly monsters.
I thrifted these shoes a couple weeks ago and they're nice and furry and will be a part of my David Bowie outfit once I acquire enough shiny for such a project.I stayed home sick today but my cold is finally beat which is great news because the Weardrobe conference is this weekend and I'M KIND OF REALLY PUMPED. And nervous, excited, etc. Basically the awesome folks over there have organized this nuts weekend full of shopping and being touristy and eating and it'll be like Weardrobe Camp, aka awesome. I have a feeling we'll all be really close by the end of it and then it'll all be over and stupid. Seriously though, check out this list of lovely ladies! Ok, now memorize it. You know why? Because we will be terrorizing New York and you will have to be able to identify us. Heh heh heh heh heh.Ooooooh prettyyyyyyyyy.
I am looking for my can of coins from when I was in elementary school and decided I would save up all of my allowance until I'm an adult and then I would be a millionaire by the time I was grown up. Obviously, a fail. I need to find it now though because I am DYING to get tons of September issues and our Borders here hasn't gotten a new Vogue UK since April. And something tells me New York will have good shopping, I think?

AHHHAHAHAH I LOVE YOU. Once Sophie and I babysat a kid named Max who had a room his mom had painted like the woods in the book, it was probably the coolest thing I've ever seen.

HOLY POOP. Have you seen the photo circulating tumblr of a little peanut dressed up as Max for Halloween?! OMGZ I AM SO EXCITED.

Maurice Sendak's "A Hole is to Dig" was my fave though, I must say.

Zara said...

Is it wrong that I'm 19 and want to see this film? Eek...
Ah heck, I'll just say I look older than I am :)

ASHEN diamonds said...

also a big fan of the wild things. it makes me want to go to the library and rent the book - seriously miss the scent and feel of picture books!

Ash said...

the book scared me when I was little and I'm terrified of the movie, looks even scarier than the book! But I'll probably go see it anyway

zeeta said...

i love things that remind me of my childhood!!! (but im kinda sad that i dont remember the book too well because i've forgotten most of the 1st grade)
maybe you shouldn't trust me b/c i dont go into the city a lot but last time i was in the city i saw this one store near bryant park with a HUGE amount of fashion magazines in a bazillion languages. they were kinda of expensive but you should check it out. but im not sure if i saw the UK vogue. i think it's called around the world.

Isabel said...

Have fun at the Weardrobe conference, dude! It sounds like soooo much fun, I'd be lying if I wasn't a little jealous! You'd better post all about it.

Caitlin said...

just watching this trailer makes me feel all safe and warm inside. like a hug from my grandma or something x

This girl said...

You are friggin gorgeous and I want to be your friend. I have a diploma in fashion design, and I have done nothing with it. I do not deserve it.

Rozie said...

I'm gonna sew my own halloween costume that's a combo between Yoshitomo Nara's art and the boy in Where the Wild Thinks Are. Letcha know how it turns out.

Fashion Obsessed said...

yeah Tavi, theres a Borders here in nyc right next to Penn Station, or do you use Grand Central Station?
Whatever it's on 7th ave and 33rd street? I think..it's 32nd, 33rd, or 34th. Anyway have fun in NY!
Maybe I'll bump into you, in which case we must photo op.
;)

bobb said...

Soren Lorensen said...

love the outfit

you look all sort of woodsy and hobo-ish

Mimi said...

argh i cannot wait to watch this movie. possibly the cutest thing i will ever see. i almost cried when watching the previews. i'm that much of a dork.

diane said...

so fun!! i'm already completely in love with that film (even if i didn't saw it yet) and when my son saw the trailer you could literally see stars in his eyes (the spongbob-eye style)!!!

Sonia said...

lucky u getting to go to the weardrobe conference! wish i could

Btw. If you're really desperate for Uk vogue I can post u one, cos I live in the uk. i think kate moss is on the cover :)

Annie said...

ouch. our vogue is definitely a plus of living in the uk!! I went on a £50 magazine binge this month though so I might have to go cold turkey for October (bar NYLON, of course!!)

Pearl Westwood said...

Is it wrong I am 27 and excited to see this film!?!? Love your blog, your so creative!

Miss Peregrin said...

I love your tribute outfit! Very Wild Things. Ahhh, I'm so excited for this movie, and I'm almost 21. My mental age is probably about 5 though, so it's ok.

Olivia Tripp said...

Oh, I so want to see this. I'm so glad they made the story into a film for everyone, not just something cartoon and for 5 year olds.
I love your blog, your such an inspiration! Olivia. x

courtneybobby said...

Billie Kinson said...

hasoon said...

I don't even have specific memories of reading WTWTA in my childhood but every time I see stills or a trailer for that movie I get tears. Gosh gosh.


Plus: A David Bowie outfit sounds intriguing.

dy said...

i can't wait for this movie!

Standard Clash said...

Wasn't Warner Bros planning on canceling the movie?If i can find the article I'll post the link on here, I wasjust reading it two days ago actually.

5:32 in the morning said...

Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) did the soundtrack. That will make the movie even more kick ass.
Have fun in New York!

Lindsay said...

Try Barnes and Noble for the Vogue UK, I just bought an issue from there last month. I get all my British magazines from there. (I'm an anglophile lol.)

R. said...

Your outfit is perfectly inspired by Where the Wild Things Are. I love how when you take inspiration from something like this, it doesn't end out all costumey, but there's just enough of a connection to see where your inspiration was. I also am beyond excited for this movie. It's been one of my favorite books my entire life and it looks like it's going to be amazing. I'm so glad they didn't do the reshoot and make it all lame and kid friendly. The great thing about the story is that is a little scary. The trailer makes me cry a little but in the best possible way.

foolfashion said...

I can't wait either!

Milly. said...

Did you manage to get the September Vogue UK? (love that you want the UK version :D )

I could probably send you one if not?

Rose said...

Did you know in Dutch the book is called Max en de Maximonsters? So much wilder, and badder than 'where the wild things are'... Monsters aren't THINGS. anyway, can't wait to see it, hope they can turn it into an exciting not too short movie, am really eager to see how the monsters dance in real life and glad to see they don't look like muppets or Snuffy.

HI said...

i like this book
