week

This week was very pink, and my face matched because it is SO COLD, WTF CHICAGO. Cold but no snow, i.e. the worst part of winter. Grumble grumble.
This week was the last before winter break so also lots of schoolwork, which also means crappy posts I don't even like in retrospect. Once again, grumble grumble.
ON THAT NOTE, this week was the last before winter break! Yay! I can go sledding down a grassy hill and pretend it's white and make a snowman out of sticks. It will probably look a bit like this picture from a recent US Vogue Patrick Demarchelier story:New DIY idea? via.
I have been working on another DIY however...
sculpey
90's girl heroes! Kim Deal not included (sorry Kim.)
From left to right: Daria, Courtney Love, Enid, Lydia Deetz, and Kim Gordon.
I still need to paint them and figure out what I'm even going to do with them. Probably play dolls or something. It would go like this:
Daria: If you want to take a model's picture you'd be better off asking my beloved sister Quinn.
Lydia: I'm sorry, it's for a /personal project./ Top secret. MY WORLD IS A DARKROOM.
Enid: Your hat reminds me of umbrellas I once saw a couple satanists carrying.
Courtney: LAWSUITS KOBAIN COBAIN @GOFACKADAWG IN THE STUDIO LAWSUITS EXCLAMATION POINTS LAW SUITS
Kim: I am completely and totally epic and my Rodarte I always wear is epic.

The end.

Man I've gotten so off topic. Pink! Right!

hand-me-down button-down. labour of love capelet. old navy tights. rodarte for target skirt. monsoon accesorize headband.

I looooove this capelet, it was an (amazing) gift from the folks at Labour of Love. Must do a glove-on-head/Dolce AW09/Schiaparelli thing with it soon.
The skirt is another piece from the Rodarte for Target collection. The light was being bipolar when I took these pictures but its color is closest to the shade in the lace detail below. The way the lace sort of rises is so weird and creepy and I totally love it?

HINTIDY HINT-later tonight I will have a giveaway going up so...STAY TUNED. Don't go out with your friends. Be anti social! Like me! *world domination to make humans stay inside all the time because I dislike humans and I dislike seeing them*
JK LOL kind of.
Untitled 1
uniqlo sweater. same hand-me-down button-down. rodarte x target dress. walgreens tights. monsoon accesorize headband. vintage doc martens, gift.

Wore this today for a field trip to see The Blind Side. I am worried I don't have a soul because the classmates in the row ahead of us kept saying "awww!" whenever the camera would show Michael and eventually I told them to shut up because he's not a kitten or anything. I did bawl like a baby at some parts though.

Anyway this Uniqlo heattech sweater came yesterday and it is totally epic. The material is ridiculously soft and the color is so rich that I will take the trouble to click the italics button. I noticed when it came that it was practically the same color as the flowers in this Rodarte x Target dress so had to wear them together of courseeee. The dress is painted lace and makes me desperately want Spring. It's halter with a black ribbon at the neck so one day I'll take a creepy picture with it where my neck is all bloody or something. Does hanging Edward Gorey posters right next to your bed affect your thoughts on everything? Perhaps.
Untitled 2
And because of the 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.

Aaaand a pair of my favorite shoes! Spencer's mom gave them to me forever ago but they're sort of secret special things I don't like sharing but here they are anyway.

They look super rad with this blue gingham coat I have.

Once again...stay tuned for a giveaway this evening! And happy happy friday!

Ahhhhh! I <3 giveaways! And that cape is tuh-die-for! So is the blue headband with the bows. Bows are also one of my weaknesses :]

Herm. Today was also our last day before winter break. TGIF over and over! I hope you enjoy your break in one of my favorite cities, Chicago!

coy colleen said...

CG *FreeLoader* said...

Ahhh I want to stay tuned and be anti social for the giveaway. Unfortunately, I will be abducted shortly :(

Love the second outfit. And those pics are amazing, miss! They belong in vogue, right next to Kate Moss in nothing but a leather jacket for the ten millionth time

go spencer's mom! i saw spencer and his mom (and his brother and his dad) when spencer was like, 8 years old. and i thought, 'what a couple of cute kids, what an adorable family' my family is pretty adorable too, though; but now i'm inspired to pass a pair of docs on to a cool person who is friends with my kid someday.

Isabel said...

Oh Tavi, if you weren't already married to Belle I would want to claim the position of 'wife'. I would be perennially entertained by your whimsical craft projects and mind blowing ensembles.

Jessie said...

I love pink clothes. That's very cute,

Love the outfits. LOVE!!!

AVY said...

Adorable as always. And if it's cold there'd better be snow. I agree.

daisymay said...

Lol my social life is gone too.

rollo said...

You're a talented little fizz wizz! Y'know, even if at some point you're all like no the fashion world just isn't for me and then proceed to beat the rabid wolves away with a non-fashionable yet highly functional broom, you're still going to have a frikkin amazing time. And hey, you met Elijah Woods, kudos to you. Rockin' the shoes so far. Oh, and the miniatures were a cool analogy for the constant Wintour comparisons, whether it was intended I don't know. Be good x

Lucy in the Sky said...

yayayay giveaways. LOVE your outfits! especially that first one. and your school field trip was to the movie theatre?? Wish I had field trips in middle school. Well actually, that one time we all went to Medieval Times was fun. I heard from my film critic friend that Blind Side was awful. hmm

oou! i love Enid. cute figures.

Tavi said...

thanks guys! <3

lucy in the sky-I feel like I am totally soulless for saying this but some parts were just so CHEESY. And everyone was always saying too many "LOOK! THIS FILM TAKES PLACE IN THE SOUTH!" analogies, like "it tasted like honey on a sweet summa day" or something.

ashford said...

oh the south! how i miss it. (but I am secretly loving this NYC first snow).

I'm not normally a doc martens girl (legs too gangly for chunk), but these gingham ones are so adorable. I'm a huge fan of gingham for spring!

Kirsten said...

Daria and Jane Lane are my Idols :D LOVE the checkered Doc Martins. great job mixing all the different pink shades.

LincolnTaft said...

I'm digging the first pink outfit makes me remember Spring, which is hard in blizzard conditions. Kuddos

In love with the capelet.
If you die, please inherit me the capelet. ;)
(Ignoring the fact that sounds creepily morbid)

xeroxahippo said...

Daria is one of the best shows from the 90s!!!

Victode said...

J'aime tes doc.

Nikki said...

i kind of sort of adore your second outfit. the floral print shrit and the sweater is so preppy...but not, in the awesomest of ways (of course)!

lexih said...

AAhhhh, you look so good mixing all those pinks together! My sister loves pink but is convinced that if she wears all pink one day, she'll get hit by a car or something strange like that.
That headband is adorable and has me itching for some DIYs.

mikaWarhol said...

you look like a rad valley girl in the second outfit, ♥

Ilana said...

AAAAAA CHICAGO! Are you going on NCSY (Conclave Convention) Cause my sis ad I will meet you there and give you a hug, you're soo cute, haha, we're driving from a far away place for this convention and we would like to MEET YOU, it sounds creepy but no.
Be there or be square ;)


PS: PLEASE COME!

Mimi said...

Very smart layering for the season, the halter dress bow looks adorable peeping out and the print really can be all season, looks great with the other print and the pullover!! I got 5 pieces yesterday but am now very tempted to scoop this one as well.
Here is my 'got it' list

Tulle slipdress in nude and black (both look so different, had to have them!)
Ribcage dress
Mustard tulle/lace skirt (but I desperately want to hotfix the gold AB Swarovskicrystals to the lace side, shocking!!!)
Navy skirt with tulle overlay...

both skirts will look awesome with medium blue pieces I have already, love mustard and blue as a combo!

Great blog, I am having a lot of fun reading!

Hannah said...

Man that pink outfit is incredible. I love pink. PINK PINK PINK.
And Schiaparelli, de best. I saw an exhibit this Summer with a bunch of her dresses and kind of died.

Hi Tavi,

Your art project reminds me of the lyrics in the Belle and Sebastian song Expectations: "Your obsessions get you known throughout the school for being strange/
Making life-size models of the Velvet Underground in clay." Maybe you were thinking of this song already?

You might want to add Poly Styrene to your clay family. No pressure though.

Keep on rocking it girlfriend,
A

Ellie said...

I <3 this blog! The doc marteners are AWESOME! I just visited Chicago . . . if you go to oak street any time soon go to little missmatched . . . they have the coolest socks!

Alexa said...

omg the pink/purple outfit is GORRRGEOUSS :)

Sunny said...

what do you think of those fashion scalpers who bought up the rodarte for target line just to resell it on ebay?

The Pink Phoenix said...

I also got the painted lace dress. I definitely like it more than the black on black dress. I went the day after the line was released and there was barely anything left! Luckily, I live in a small enough town that I found exactly what I wanted in my size, yay!

p.s. I love your blog. Practically addicted!
