prada

Prada
Soooo Friday night was a party for the new Prada book, held at the store in LA. Allow me to call to your attention a few EPIC anecdotes of epic.
Honeycomb walls:
honeycomb
A page of the book. Christy Turlington in Prada. SO perfect 90's minimalism. christy turlington 90's prada
And these stairs that sprout out of the sidewalk:
stairs
Are these paparazzi holding up cameras or are they people in really cool headpieces?
Unfortunately cameras, one of which got this picture of Dasha's beautiful outfit and my "oh hi I found out I was going to this 3 minutes ago" one. Really glad I decided to pack these Miu Miu shoes that Sheba handed down to me at last minute. Actually I was feelin' kinda Weetzie Bat while putting this together, knowwhatimasayin? This dress that totally reminds me of Joni Mitchell's drawings in the Ladies of the Canyon liner notes, the surfnskate Proenza print, the hairbow I got on Olvera Street.. and reading that book totally made me want to move to LA and raise a witch baby and always wear feathered headpieces.
And on a somewhat unrelated note, with words like "feelin'," you take off the g to make it sound more breezy and cool and effortless, right? But then you have to add an apostrophe to make it grammatically correct, but all of a sudden it becomes lame and trying-too-hard and something that might be heard said by an elderly Bar Mitzvah attendee that dances with his fingers pointed up to the ceiling and arms moving up and down, or by an aunt that also uses words such as "funky" and "hip," and who wears earrings not unlike those of Ms. Frizzle.
These are the thoughts that trouble me.

Oh right, outfit. Vintage dress underneath, gift. Proenza Schouler top. Thrifted purse via Salvation Army. Tsumori Chisato socks. Miu Miu shoes. Hairbow from Olvera Street market in LA. Watch from this one year at summer camp where I found it under a chair and no one claimed it so I took it.

And Shala looked fantastic as per usual.shala
On the ground outside the store were these holes filled with books and mannequins wearing the (amazing) Fall line.
holes
I wouldn't have minded falling in and spending the entire night and next day looking at all the books, but turns out they were simply BOXES.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.shhh they're boxesPrada
People people blah blah, see if you can spot a peak of somebody's tighty whiteys (classy!)...people
It was fun. But the very best part of the night was without a doubt meeting Miss Miuccia Prada herself. She was wearing a turban, and a dress from Spring 2010 that had that creepy snowy-looking beach print I really loved, and though we exchanged very few words, her presence was quickly and quietly overwhelming. She's one of those people of which you are in complete awe upon seeing, because you go through in your mind everything that they've created, and sort of think "All of this came from this one person's ideas..." and it's hard to fathom that anyone can be that amazing.

well i watched Bridget Jones: the edge of reason this weekend, which I think is just as - if not more fun - than a party for some obscure designer. and i read real books (no that's a lie. all my books are boxes too. I'm such a phony).
This looked like so much fun. I love your crazy outfit. After all your somber-ish (but still awesome) halloween costumes this is a big enough "POP OF COLOUR!!" to make Seventeen magazine proud (im sorry I'll stop comparing your style to seventeen mag, you are cooler I swear).

Lauren said...

Tavi, what are your thoughts on Lady Gaga? Did you like her performance?

Fashlynable said...

Great socks.
It seems as though this was truly a night to remember for you! Hope you are having a great time :).

Isabel said...

Dude, where did you score those Miu Miu shoes?

You're better at wearing high heels than me. I guess its good that you're upping your pain tolerance as a young'un. At 19, I am far too decrepit to start wearing heels on a regular basis.

Tavi said...

Anna, I always crack up at your comments.

Isabel - My friend Sheba scored them for $13 ages ago from some Feline's Basment or TJ Maxx or something saleswoman that didn't know what she was doing!

Lauren- Oh geez, I don't know, it's stressing me out. I'll have to post on it eventch.

Soren Lorensen said...

you look ggggrrrreat

it is the socks that make it more than great, that elevate it to multiple-letters-for-emphasis status.

SO. said...

do you live in la? thats amaaaazing. i cant believe you met prada herself. ahh!! insanity! thats freaking awesome! i met someone amazing too this weekend. i met spike jonze ahhhH!! anyway, im jealous nonetheless.

rose said...

Dearest Tavz,
My name is Rose and I live in L.A. I sooooo wanted to run into you this weekend and tell you how much I love your blog! You are tooooo great for words. I have told all my friends and their daughters about your blog. I hope to one day meet you. You are an inspiration on so many levels!!!
Sincerely,
Rose

ita darling. said...

Dear Miss Tavi McTaverson.
First of all- your outfit was fab- and very cute. If I was imaginarily stylin'(tee) you, I would've added a belt perhaps?

I really love reading your thoughts. You are kinda genius.

I know glamazon fur wearing goddesses must be intimidating to be photographed with- I WOULD BE- but then again, I am not invited to Prada book parties.

From hear on out- Thou shalt open up your body language to say "I am AWESOMEOSITY INCARNATE and worthy of photographing and existing next to fur wearing glamazons" There. I said it. Because you are beautiful.

Chloe said...

I want your life.

Denise said...

oh tavi! you are such a lady in that photo.

what more can you do when your 18? amazing you!

I Am Denise Katipunera

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!

SO-That I am TOTALLY jealous of.
rose-I was just in LA for the weekend.

Katherine said...

[ StrawberiiStarz ] said...

So were you invited to this..? Or did you go all the way to LA just to see the new store? D:


I was only 4 hours away from Le Tavi!!! Aww, I just want to hug you. You're too cute! XD

Ahh...yes, I'm sorry if I come off a bit creepy. ^_______^

Pearl Westwood said...

So funny, you finders keepers'ed the watch !!

Meghan said...

I love it!
You are soo lucky :)))

misspollyhadadolly said...

It must feel extra-especially amazing to be able to do all these things at your age, when it would be amazing enough to do it past 20....

The honeycomb wall freaks me out because I have a phobia of lots of holes! But looks like fun

Amy said...

khelsaoe said...

I agree with Isabel: you pulled off thoses heels like a pro!! I gave up my heels when I got married (because my hubby is a smidge shorter than me), and I don't want to tower over him night and day.

I just randomly stumbled upon your blog the other day, and I must say you are quite beautiful and intriguing.

Thanks for that!

Chloe said...

This Prada book is going to be fantastic...I can feel it. :)

I'm already clearing a spot on the shelf for it.

Oh - by the way! Love the story behind your watch! Ha - now that's one for the grandkids...not to mention that you met Prada..they'll like that too...

I absolutely LOVE Dark angels. I'm actually re-reading it right now. I can't believe you've read Francesca Lia Block. Amazing, no? Yeah, she made me want to move to LA as well.
Lucky you on meeting the absolutely wonderful Ms. Prada.

MrJeffery said...

That looked crazyfun. Thanks for sharing!

corksandcaftans said...

haha! you are a total badass. And probably the only person i would have wanted to hang out with at that par-tay. You look better than the all black fur lady. I would have started crying if I had to pose in a photo with her.

Best thing of your saga is that you found a watch and it really turned out as an usable item. I can't even find a dime.

im so happy that you are in teen vogue!!! have been following your blog and it is my favorite!you always fill me with inspiration- continue what you do best! =)

Matteo said...

get ya!
shouldnt you be at school? instead of partying on rodeo drive?
i bet the book is fantastic. hope you got your copy for free!
you could also use it to practice for model walk and then you can apply to ANTP and give J Alexander a big snap!
you got it girl!

Catherine said...

So cool you got to meet Miuccia— faint! My first pair of really expensive shoes was a pair of suede Prada slingbacks. I love them to death.

I've mentioned the Prada book to my boyfriend so many times he's made me swear not to buy it for myself.

Love your socks and shoes combo— great colors!

http://littlehouseofstyle.blogspot.com/

CoocooforCoco said...

What a great outfit...I especially dig the sock and shoe combo.

Faith said...

Those aren't tighty whities...it's the t-shirt the dude is wearing under his sweater. Which actually IS classy. So, yeah...

I don't understand the PS t-shirt phenom thing. It's a freaking T-SHIRT. With long sleeves, but still. What gives? I would have loved to have seen the rest of the vintage dress you had on under the shirt. Or maybe see the shirt with a pair of skinny jeans. But to be honest, it doesn't look much different from shirts anyone can get from Target, Vic's Secret, or maybe even the Gap these days, you know?

I'm fashiontarded, it seems. ::crosses eyes::

English Rose said...

i love the walls and your socks are so cute!

I saw you on the Vogue blog today! Yay!

Subversive said...

I most say I saw Kristen Stewart in a Proenza Schouler top, but being a style rookie fan, I was all "nah ah! no one wears it as well as you!"

Kerensa said...

Love the Proenza Shirt!
Weetzie Bat is amazing, have you read the whole Dangerous Angels collection? Also, read Echo if you haven't.

Emily Rose said...

Hey Tavi!
I just discovered your blog in the past week, and I've already gone back and read it from the beginning! Your writing style is effortlessly entertaining and you don't seem to realize just how beautiful and unique(in a good way :) you are, which makes you even more amazing! I'm looking forward to reading your future posts!

MIUCCIA IS MY LIFE HERO

Renee Clayton said...

I feel like your outfit needed a belt and the purse needed the strap tucked in--ya' know, so you wouldn't be wearin' it across your body like a junior high-er. Well done, though. I couldn't hang with these folks.

Kaila P. said...

Love your outfit. The Proenza shirt is fabo. ME WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love you tavi, in a friendly way, not a stalkerish way haha... :D

Angeles Almuna Design said...

You look amazing and unique! I love to see that Prada book and sometimes sport are not for everyone, just take a nice walk, dance at home and enjoy yourself!
