"woohoo yeah go sports"-kristin prim's pajamas

So...how do I say this, really? BASICALLY I came home one day and there was a package with a card from the creative director of Prada, Fabio, saying that he and Mrs. Prada saw that I really liked (or was being really creepy/in love with) the Spring 2000 collection and liked my blog (THIS LIL OLD THING? Shucks) and WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE? The lip print skirts from that collection? I mean..crazy. When did all this happen again? I am not going to get used to it.

t-shirt from Isabel. american apparel sheer button-down. repetto shoes, gift. rodarte for target tights, and due to FTC regulations I am supposed to let you know that I received compensation and pieces from the rodarte for target collection for my collaboration with target. prada lip skirt. wren black skirt underneath.

Despite my expression I was DYING inside, as I was the WHOLE DAY. I normally wouldn't wear such godly pieces of godliness to school amongst all those MERE MORTALS! With their AXE and their OLD SPICE! But alas, I am a mortal as well; one with greasy fingers and a runny nose, even. Still, I could not resist, and really wanted to break out the grey one this morning.
I don't think there was really any inspiration, I think I wanted to wear the skirt as a kind of babydoll dress and then add semi-gothteenager stuff, like the lace and the sheer button-down, to make it more creepy and less girly, more moody teenager, make it not look like something Charlotte would've worn on Sex and the City. The navy shoes just looked right. And I sort of like the idea of trying to cover a gray t-shirt with a nice button-down and fancy girly lips.
Also, I look like a penguin.

NOW HERE'S ME, BEING ALL COOL AND A MODEL AND STUFF.

I enjoy how it looks like I'm taking off a wig. Speaking of this hair of mine, it's pretty much grey now! And it's lots of fun, because people can't figure out if I'm 80 or 13. Sometimes I don't know either, as most of the time I just like to bicker about the state of our world and wear hats, in various locations, including school, park benches, and my home.

Had to fasten the skirt to stay up using a baby pin. Putting a hole through the glorious fabric was painful but ended up not really affecting the skirt, THANKFULLY. And it sort of adds to the babydoll dress thing, in a weird way.
IMG_1374
And a better picture of the print. Notice how the lips practically GLOW. Do your lips practically GLOW? And those pleeeeeaats. No.words.
IMG_1372
The shoes are too big for me but I put them on for the picture. I do and don't want to grow. If I do, I'll fit more into these shoes and other clothes, but I'll also outgrow some of my current favorite pieces. DECISIONS, DECISIONS. Um, not that I have a choice. But! Anyway:

I was also lucky enough to receive the skirt with red lips, which I plan to somehow incorporate into a creepy nurse/Richard Prince outfit.

Oh, life. Oh, people! You are very good to me, and I am lucky. One day I will be saying to my grandchildren, "You know, I once had a blog, which is like those hologram things you kids have now, but it was on a big cubic device. And some people kinda got a kick out of it, and I sometimes got things like skirts from Prada." And they'll be like "LOL OK TIME FOR BED, BUBBE."

Hi Tavi,

This is a complete non sequitur, but your profile photo reminds me of Feral Childe's Fall/Winter 2010 collection:

http://kaightnyc.blogspot.com/2010/02/feral-childe-fw-2010-sneak-preview.html

Do you know these designers? I think you would like them.

Here's some earlier stuff from when they were straight from art school.

More great photos on Kylah's photostream on Flickr

These days, Feral Childe is more classic, but still with wacky-intelligent, surprising details.

Full disclosure: I know the designers, but I'm not trying to push them arbitrarily; I really think you would like them!

I am really digging the hair, esp. in the first picture.

I used to have that same baby pin! hopefully it has powers of making the owners/previous babies awesome, it seems plausible

you get what you deserve, and if you are receiving gifts from designers like Prada, you must be doing something right. Keep up the good work and excellent writing.

Oh you're wearing it in the BEST BEST way of course!

Foodie said...

Does anyone know how to dye your hair grey? I have black hair that is going white. I went to a salon to have it dyed grey; they put on "ash brown" and now it is yellowy brown. I went back to the salon and they told me that that was the best they could do.

battlingthedinosaurs said...

I love the Isabel shirt! It is great! Lips on pleats? chyeaaa... It's like a censored version of the nudes on the Miu Miu blouses/pants.

Oh and I also love your grey-purple-ish hair. You make me want to go old too. Though, I think my mother would have a heart attack if I actually.... ehhh

jessica said...

tavi, I'm on the cusp of 41 and have been flipping out all day about some grey hairs that have magically appeared this past week. Then I see you in all your young adorableness with your grey hair and suddenly don't feel so bad about it! Keep writing doll, and screw the FTC enjoy all the goodies, you deserve it!

Mon Parisienne said...

Antonella said...

Helen said...

It is so great to read a post like this; it makes me feel hopeful and happy, and it makes me excited to think of other young women and girls discovering feminism. Keep on keeping on. YOU ROCK.
