"daddy this is my friend Tai" "GET OUTTA MY CHAY-UH"

My, this weekend was full of non-internety things and it was rather enjoyable. Ella and I went to Starbucks, wiped two face-size circles of fog away from the windows, stuck our heads in them and acted like The Biggest D-Bags Ever. Meaning, I wore a beret and held a Diana up to my eye and pretended to take pictures of anyone that passed. And Ella put on huge black sunglasses and held a mystery stories magazine up to her face. We are so obnoxious slash pretentious slash very much like the stereotypical Wes Anderson fan hipster (I mean, I love Wes Anderson! My header font is the one he always uses! And I love it! But, you know. The type. I'm talking about.)

So that's that. QUITE THE BUSY WEEKEND INDEED.
Oh, and Hanukkah! Happy Hanukkah, fellow Jews!

This is one of the dresses from the Rodarte for Target collection, worn last week I think? And since this dress was inspired by Rosemary's Baby, I tried to style my hair like Mia Farrow like I used to when it was shorter. And by "style" I mean "not clip my bangs to the side with some type of butterfly hairclip from the 90's." Beauty is hard work, I'LL TELL YA.I didn't realize it until I actually was wearing it but the silhouette of the bottom of the dress is a lot like the flowery ones from Rodarte SS07. This picture is from their studio in LA when we were trying to put together a look for the MOCA event ("I don't rely on mirrors, so I always take polaroids!" Or in this case, digital, lameeee) but I don't think it shows the bottom very well, herm.

Well, it's not like if I don't have a good picture of the bottom of the Rodarte flowery dress from SS07 anyone will DIE, or anything. This is my new excuse for my laziness: WELL, IT'S NOT LIKE I'LL DIE IF I DON'T [insert something having to do with medicine, turning off stoves, making sure our numerous tractors aren't roaming around our house sans supervision.] Well, that and: I WAS JUST IN TOKYO A FEW WEEKS AGO SO I'M KIND OF OUT OF IT. This one I will keep using for a few months, I'm sure it'll still work by May, right?

And on the back of the dress, my weakness: REDDI WHIP. Wait, no, my other weakness: REBA MARATHONS. Wait, no, my other other weakness: BOWS.

IMG_3510
Allllsooo, because of that new law, I am supposed to let you know that I receieved compensation and pieces from the Rodarte for Target collection for my collaboration with Target.

Once I was home from school the day I wore this all plain I actually tried a more interesting outfit.
I need, need, need, need, NEED to just start waking up earlier. I miss being creative! Oh farts.
IMG_3552
Rodarte for Target dress, blue dress kind of showing underneath, and denim jacket. Random buttons. Vintage belt and yellow necklace. Other necklace, hat, and ring from Monsoon Accessorize. Celeste Stein tights via mytights.com. Comme des Garcons shoes.

Inspired by this spread from the P.Y.T. issue of i-D this past September:
IMG_3557
So basically, mixing blue, orange, yellow...a little red, a little black. And animal print. Argh such good styling.
Untitled 1
Details, etc etc. The hat is EPIC and has peaccok feathers embroidered on using sequins. Whaaat. The wonderful folks at Monsoon Accessorize sent it to me along with this chunky necklace and ring and some other goodies that will pop up here eventually because they are insane.

Time to find a baby picture for the yearbook. I was thinking of bringing in one of an old man, Y/Y/Y?

leopard dress is just incredible! And your mix of jeans vest and this dress is also very bright, bravely and interesting.
Very good look%))

Margaret Tran said...

Jeez Louise - your shizzle is incredible. Plus one for the red shoes + pearls and facepalm to the Diana. You need to get yourself a Yashica TLR =]

LEOPARD DRESS IS VERY CUTE, VISIT MY BLOG :)

Kylie said...

Oooo whatcha gunna do with all that cheddah from Target?? Something fabulous I know, like buying an elephant. Imagine rolling into school everyday on Dumbo... sweet.
And yeah, my weakness for animal prints (and of course, bows) might send me on a day trip to the states to get that dress. The rossette dress looks great oversized on you like that... more interesting than your regular old party mini, non?

AVY said...

Sounds like a nice time at Starbucks, I'm gonna try that some day.

aandhblog said...

First of all, props for not one but TWO references to Clueless... makes me want to go rollin' with the homies, I'm telling you! :) Also, the bows integrated into the back of that dress are KILLER!! Hopefully my paltry small-town Target will carry it; otherwise I will venture into the murky waters of online shopping in pursuit of its leopard-print goodness!

Tavi said...

Julie, you made me laugh so hard with your comment. IT'S TRUE!

Gun Street Girl said...

1) Clueless is AWESOME
2) your outfit with the vest and the leopard forced me to make incomprehensible noises for about 40 seconds. So good.
3) y/y/y to the old man baby picture idea.

MAISON CHAPLIN said...

Speechless, you look fabulous! I admire you for your young age and such an open mind like that.

You have TWO "glorified craft projects" from the rodarte ss2007? that crazy. nice reference to cher.

Ross said...

wait, sorry. did'nt read the post entirely before commenting. did you get to keep either?

TheBeautyFile said...

I don't even know what to say about you watching Reba marathons...

Also, you look fantastic in the Rodarte. They better be compensating you my doll...you work pretty damn hard.

Also, also...old man for the yearbook gets my vote. Perhaps a hand drawn mustache to top it off? Brava!

[ StrawberiiStarz ] said...

Very cute outfits, I must say. Never was too big of a fan..of flowers but it still looks cute on you! ^-^

I love the tights especially...I love leg accessories... D:

I MUST SAY....those bows are tooooo cute! At first I thought they were dinosaur spikes...xD I don't know, I'm silly...!

[ StrawberiiStarz ] said...

OH! And I LOVE that part on Clueless. I always laugh hard at the dad's comment. XD He's hecka mean to the new friend...he could careless who she is, it's his chair. rofl.

AR said...

So, im just gonna say something, i read about you last week, i bought the Mexican Vogue (yes, im writing from Mexico) and i just get fascinated with the words about you, but, what it amazed me the most was that you're just 13.

So congratulations for been such a creative girl, also for your great sense of style, i mean you are really an inspiration for lots of true fashionistas.

AFitz said...

WHY WOULD YOU READ THE CLUELESS SCREENPLAY WHEN YOU CAN JUST SEE THE MOVIE I DONT GET IT IM SO CONFUSED.

although ngl i used to do that as a kid with R rated moves my parents wouldn't let me see - South Park movie and American Pie, I'm looking at you.

ChayAiz said...

happy chanukah!!


good luck in school
i like the bows on the back of the leaopard dress and what you did in the outfit with it after wards

mila said...

The leopard dress is probably my favorite dress in the Rodarte collection! You look good in it. I have a jean jacket almost exactly the same as the one your wearing! (even if jean jackets look almost all the same!)

Isabel said...

Oh my Jesus H. Garcia (Freaks and Geeks reference, laugh with me here)! That outfit with the leopard dress and the denim jacket is WAY TOO GOOD. When we have the epic blogger meetup or my (our?) dreams, I will snatch that outfit. Gahhh, you are toocoolforme.

worn fashion journal said...

Totally relate to wearing one outfit to school and then make it all awesome once I got home. I used to babysit in the best outfits, but was always too scared to wear it to class. Also yay the Clueless reference.

Gem said...

OH! I just love the denim jacket, you know .. with the random buttons on it and all. :3

M . said...

You have a great blog.

zoomslow said...

Okay, so you're probably going, "Is this like a Noxzema commercial or what?" But seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl

Michael said...

More prints, please! Loving the balance of the Leopard Rodarte for Target with blue dress underneath and denim jacket. And yes, please get up early more often.

That leopard dress and its bows are amazing!

stylespotterfashionblogger said...

The leopard dress is amazing. I find if I don't get up early I don't have time to think my outfit through too. Very annoting. Someone suggested that i get it ready the night before..far too organised. Then I spend the whole day feeling self-concious about my medioca outfir. :) Can't imagine you ever look medioca.

gem fatale said...

Oh my god, the leopard dress is sick. (Good sick).
Love the title! Made me lolz. x

Emily Anne said...

Sweetheart, your blog is groovy.

Reminds me of the fashion magazines I pass, but never pick up... Alas.
I am nowhere near a fashion person, but I do like to dress with class.
You on the other hand have it all together.
Do you go out in public like that... to like school or mcdonalds?
If so, rock on.
I don't know if I would have enough guts to do that. :/
I like basic jeans, a shirt and pearls.
That's it.
I also hear you write for Bazzar. Whoa. I do a little magazine part time, so I know what it's like to write a magazine, but not a big one.

Well I must stop writing- Just want to say YOU are groovy, you're only 13, but you are showing all those grown-up's that you don't need to be 37 with a college degree to DO AWESOME things! :) Change the world for the good and you'll look back someday and smile at how well your teen years were spent. :)

Nice visiting your blog... I'll be back.

Xoxo- Emily Anne

You should check out this great article about Wes Anderson from The New Yorker, a few weeks back. Sadly, there is only an excerpt available online - but you could probably find it at the library! Great article!!

Thats a really nice leopard print. The dress looks killer with the denim jacket!

Edith O said...

oh wow the leopard dress is marvelous! for some reason it strikes me as something a fabulous but despicable gold-digger/widow would wear to the funeral of her wealthy (ex)husband, then wears it to meet her young boy-toy. golly i think i should write mils and boon. and the red shoes!! wow!! im thinking some DIY is required on my part.....
keep it classic!

Simon said...
