the obesession continues

Just a real quick FYI, for you to write down somewhere important, like on your hand, or the 'fridgerator, because it is very important, and something you should be aware of, and something I should've realized a while ago:
See that? Right there? That is my dog. Her name is Switch. She sometimes bites.
And see this? Right here?OH? WHAT'S THIS? COULD THAT BE A JACK RUSSEL TERRIER? SORT OF SIMILAR TO MY JACK RUSSEL TERRIER?
Here is a better photo, taken from Susie Bubble's blog, taken from the new Elle Collections:
SO BASICALLY, ONE OF THREE THINGS ARE HAPPENING HERE:
  • Back in my second year of preschool, when we got Switch, I knew, somehow, because I am psychic, that many years later, Miuccia Prada would literally duplicate my dog onto prints and send them out on the Miu Miu runway. And I am basically Matilda. Or at the very least, Raven Baxter.
  • OR, Miuccia Prada is psychic, and knew that I had a dog like this, and was trying to send me subliminal messages through Miu Miu. And she is basically Matilda. Not Raven, because Miuccia is too cool for that.
  • It is mere FATE, and I therefore cannot go on without being able to wear prints of my dog, all the time. Because, fate!
Which one is it, you ask? I do not know! But, I do know that to end a kind of pointless post, I will direct you to one of the most brilliant things ever written, to both compensate for the brain cells you lost reading this babbling, and because it is such a chunk of logic and truth and honesty and sums up so much about the internet and fashion that ugh just READ IT.

Switch is totally adorable.

Here's my dog Sage and his fashion moment: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27603940@N08/2839043029/in/set-72157607176385554/

He didn't get a whole amazing TEXTILE tribute though!

fashionella said...

whichever it is, i think we are all dying to have some sort of animal print garment by miu miu in our wardrobes this season!

S. Kahlon said...

I think it's the third. You're Matilda.

How do I know, you ask? Because I'm Raven Baxter.

Believe it.

fashionella said...

oh and wawawauw i'm reading the thing you linked and it is like yeahprettygeniusthanksforsharing

Birthday Girl said...

maybe if you get your Matilda on enough one day a package will magically turn up at your door which your dog will pick up form the post man and drop on your bed and cock his head to one side while you open it and it will be from Miuccia and you will look at your dog in amazement and it will WINK AT YOU. or something.

how many kids who ride your new friend at school's bus have you seen forced to eat a whole chocolate cake at assembly? i think the answer to this will narrow everything down...

Hi!
Little Tavi, you re a genius.
I ve been reading your blog for a couple of hours now.
you re clever, witty, and sill have your "kid" creative energy (I m 20 but already no more imagination I think unfortunately). I feel better after reading you.
Well I m gonna go cleaning the house, I m an aupair in dark England and the family come back tomorrow from holiday. (and as you have seen, learning English).
I hope you are gonna write a greygardens-charlottebronte-twinpeaks-gorey gothic novel. ( it didn t sound so weird in y head, I must sleep)
take care
Aurelie

Cherie said...

Ahahaha this is funny... I wonder if you can like, move things without touching them and/or freak out really mean principles too.

Ross said...

I'm casting my vote on fate. It was fate that this would happen, so next time you see M. Prada, you have a jumping off point for your conversation, which will lead to a life long friendship where you braid each others hair and gossip about karl.

dani d. said...

yeah... that print is pretty fricken amazing. so are Matilda AND Raven Baxter. dani--d.blogspot.com

Ross said...

wait... Matilda wasn't psychic, she was telekinetic.

Samantha Nandez said...

I vote both! And that dress....ROCKS

Dani said...

that's really cool, your dog is super cute!!!

"See that? Right there? That is my dog. Her name is Switch. She sometimes bites."

Bwhahaha! Is it wrong that I take so much pleasure in that one statement right there? Even as I just think about it again I burst out laughing. So, in this case, literally lol.

Lolololololol!

Reference to the horrible but I-still-watched-it show, That's So Raven. PLUS TEN POINTS.

Emma said...

Pretty much one of my favorite collections ever, ever, ever! The naked ladies, the dogs, the silly/girly shapes with funny prints. AMAZING shoes. And, the fact that I will not have them on my feet at all is really sad and miserable and gut wrenching and the end of the world. I mean, THOSE SHOES! I am hoping that option two is true. To have your dog recognized by Miuccia? She is so awesome and this collection is so awesome. Did you see the remix video on the website? I have been checking for months to see it and it finally came. Anyway, I like these somewhat meaningless posts and your dog is really cute. Hope you are enjoying fashion week. What did you think of the Rodarte show? Genius, no?

ashley said...

I apologize in advance if someone already addressed this, but you had TWO YEARS OF PRESCHOOL?! Or did you mean kindergarten?

Amanda said...

that collection was a dream..didn't even notice the dog print and that's crazy a coincidence! thanks for linking that article- that girl said spoke so much truth

Emily said...

Oh my gosh twins! Muiccia definitely saw a picture of your dog and KNEW that you would be big in 2009/2010 and just had to work it into her collection!

mila said...

Aww, you have an adorable dog! As long as they don't use dog fur, hurt dogs, or test these wonderful creations on dogs, I love it!

brightlightsbigcity said...

That's so Raven.. what a great show. Except her psychic ability always ended with her misinterpreting the future... which means.. you don't have a dog at all! Wooo this magic stuff is crazy.

It was indeed a Raven Baxter vision or should I say premonition.
You were in Vogue Paris. Perhaps Switch will appear in Dogs in Vogue: A Decade in Canine Chic Volume 2.

so cute dog

I love it !!

Jonasa Coix said...

What is happening here?! Pets on runway prints?! Another fun and notable, pet-friendly fashion-print homage happened on Y-3 A/W10...Cats in jailbird outfits!!? Total cuteness! This is an excitedly frightening development this fall no? It's the ultimate fashion scare: the incorporation of mid-western traditions of putting your beloved pet friends on clothes! Let's just thank the heavens that these are not pastel colors or on chunky knits.

Delightfully Tacky said...

That first photo freaked me out, I thought it was a photo of my dog!! Jack Russells are the best dogs. I love my little pup!

Switch is such a great name for a dog. My dog looks very similar. Her name is Little Bit because she has just a tiny bit of color just on her face and is white everywhere else.

Clearly Miu Miu was inspired by our dogs and needs to send us her dog printed items as payment for said inspiration.

Yes, yes and YES to that article you linked to... and to your blog too of course. You make sitting at a desk for 8 hours at a time worthwhile. Keep up the amazing work!
