home!

Tonight we got home from Tokyo. I'm still sort of recovering and trying to figure out WHAT just happened in the past week but it was amazing (I know I use that word to describe a lot of stuff but it is really really meant this time.) It was a whole other world though, and towards the end I found myself ready for home. Then I saw a guy on the plane wearing a shirt that said "I (heart) hot moms" on it, and was reminded that American flight attendants don't wear bright purple like Japanese ones, and that I would be going back to school on Monday...so that's that.

Once I find out what is for the blog and what will be included in an article I'm writing, I will ramble and rant like I normally do, but for now I'm too lazy to upload any photos or even go downstairs to get a glass of Nesquik even though it sounds really good right now. Once I am not out of sorts, and have a few more sorts, and then some, I will talk about depressing airports and amazing Japanese toilets. But I will keep what it was like to meet Rei Kawakubo to myself. The most special moments are to be kept secret and I won't need to write a post to remember what happened.

And, because I don't like a pictureless post...This is a main reference point for hair dying want/need.
Soooo...what'd I miss while I was gone? It doesn't make much sense that I'm a blogger that doesn't have a laptop and usually posts about most events and shows days after they happen. I'm like some old hag with a walker trudging past a running marathon, the bright green tennis balls befooting my wretched tool juxtaposed with the neon sneakers of these fast, with-the-times younguns. (I realize I am a youngun, but with a slow computer.)

I think I have the energy to get Nesquik now.

Hi girl! i've read about your blog in a Spanish Blog so I decided to visit it and I have to say that I really like it!
I'm a 17-year-old girl with a fashion blog but i'm starting... I hope you visit it and give me your opinion. thanks!

FASHION DOOHICKEy said...

Marissa said...

i went to tokyo a couple years ago and the toilets were absolutely the best thing ever! also, did you go to shibuya 109 in the shibuya district? my favorite store in the world.

simplyolive said...

i've been checking out your blog for some time, & just thought i'd say 'hi'. love your perspective - you are wise beyond your years...

so envious of your tokyo trip & meeting rei kawakubo...

Memoria de pez. said...

Greetings from L.A. Tavi!!
Your maturity and ability to recognize and trust your instinct is why I love to follow your blog. Don’t ever change Ms. Tavz, please! I’m sure your trip was productive and inspiring, to say the least.
Welcome back, we missed you!
Rose

Jasmine said...

I love Japan as well amnazing country which has an upbeat atmosphere. Although I wouldn't know I haven't been there. Hear me sounding like a expert. Anyhow I have just started a fashion blog and this blog is really inspirational for me especially because I am tween to teen years old and your around the same age as me. I love your postings oh and by the way check out my blog:
http://theinevitableworldoffashion.blogspot.com/
I know what a odd name for a fashion blog "Inevitable" doesn't that mean bound to happen.
Anyway, Looking to find some followers so please follow me!

Who is Rebekah? said...

Ha. You were in the New Yorker this week in an "Around the Town" about Lady Gaga. It made my day.

Jasmine said...

Me again. Eurgggh I know I'm so annoying. I've just started my own blog you see and well I don't know how to get followers so how did you get followers.

Isabella said...

im sure you had the bestest time there!
when i went to japan (a year ago so i was 12) i came back and i laid in bed literally crying because i wanted to be back there so much!
the food especially was awesome!
did you have any of those dried up fry type thingies? that came in those plastic cartons and they were shaped like fat fried but they were potato chips?? i hope so, those were awesome!!

Stephanie said...

You are such an amazing lady, I'm from spain and when I heard of you I felt like I had to learn some more about you...
You are such an artist and you really deserve all what is happening to you...

Just wanted to say hi, here it's 1:01 AM, good night =)

Kylie said...

I know I'm not the only one who's dying to hear about ~the Rei Experience~ but I understand the need for privacy. I would probably keep it to myself too if I met my hero. Just saying.
And the header? From Pop? I think? Don't judge if I'm wrong, ha! Anyways, glad your back and most importantly you're alive in one piece. When my brother came back from Japan all he could talk about was the toilets too... so, you're not alone! LOL

<3<3<3

A said...

Even if you don't do it in a blog post, write your meeting with Rei down somewhere. I found a notebook of mine detailing something significant that happened to me, and it contained many details that I'd forgotten, even though I have a decent memory.

Keeping some things to yourself is necessary, but preserve them for your future self.

breezy412 said...

ur such a lucky duck! lol

Emilie said...

I never found the opportunity to comment on your last post but love the pictures! The photo where you are chatting with your hands in the pockets of that seriously epic skirt (the whole ensemble is ridiculously cool) is my favorite. Plus the three photos against the red door. Also, sounds like Tokyo was, as anticipated, amazing. Understand in terms of what and what not to disclose on the blog. Makes complete sense.

Tavi said...

A-of course! I keep a diary.

Ella said...

Your a lucky girl, that you got to meet Rei. Here comes the emoticon..... :] It really love how your keeping this experience to yourself. It's really really....hmmm...what's the word? Well the wod is yet to be found to complete that sentence. Your and inspiration.

Lucy in the Sky said...

aw, honestly I wish we could hear about your meeting with Rei. :( but it's alright. I think if something as amazing as that happened to me, I'd keep the moment to myself, too.

Wow, got here through Business of Fashion site. Just had to tell you that you write incredibly well for a 13-yr old. You are certainly wise beyond your years!

You are amazing - a word that I also like to use very often, and I really mean it.

Wish you lots of love and hope you will be contributing your creativity and insights to the fashion industry in times to come.
