"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.
IMG_1336
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.
IMG_1357
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:
IMG_1371
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."

I absolutely adored those skirts, you're so lucky! Someday I aspire to be you...only much taller.

PS
If you ever read your devoted fans' comments, please try to stop by my blog sometime.

isabella whitney said...

amazing. amazing. so funny that people think you're 80. :)

Kate said...

CUTE! The greyish blue hair just enhances the outfit :-)

Also, it looks like those shoes are a few sizes too big - are you actually able to walk in them? I'd be falling on my ass in the snow :-P

Sarah Cazz said...

i am SOOOO jealous!!! I have been trying to find the Prada lips skirt FOREVER!!! I am obsessed with the same collection, i love the sheer dress and skirt with the clock pieces sewn on. I'm so dying right now that they sent you TWO lips skirts!!

Hahaha Tavi, you make my day. I wish I was as cool as you when I was 13... heck, I wish I was as cool as you right now :) Live it up girl, even though your grandkids probably won't care enough to appreciate the awesomeness of your teenage life!

emily said...

Oh, my God. Oh my GOD. Tavi- you-

I don't even-

You are so lucky. You are... my mind is just blown right now. I can't even imagine being 13 (Two year difference, but pff) and GETTING PACKAGES FROM PRADA AND WORKING WITH RODARTE AND... just doing all the things you do. It's crazy. It's amazing. It's beautiful. I can't imagine anyone better to recieve things and appreciate things like this but you.

First time commenter! Long time reader.

LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!1!

Looks awesome.

rosanguyen said...

I've loving the glossy colour of your shoes! Its a lovey shade. You totally have a lot more style than I do. :)

Aunt Eggma said...

so if you could manage to get your hands on those and send them on over to me that would be great. thaaaaanksss.

santoki said...

Hooray for Richard Prince and his (not so creepy) nurses. And you, little lady, are such a gem!

Kitty said...

Love it, I remember loving those when they came out and back then people didn't even have the courtesy to do high street rip offs, for shame ;) You are very lucky and you equally deserve all the success x

WendyB said...

Fabulous...I love lip prints!

Isabel said...

I love that lil ponytail you've got going on! This outfit is freakin' marvelous. But obviously that is because you are wearing the Tin-Tin shirt I sent you, nothing to do with the Prada skirt (LOL).

PS - Did you ever get around to making the scrapbook?

Tavi said...

Isabel, check your DMs!

the hollister abolisher said...

Okay so it was so strange when I looked at the first photo because I didn't even realize it was you. You looked older? yeah, older. But I was glad to see that your writting style hadn't changed;)

DISTRIKMODE said...

LOL girl you are hilarious!! I love reading your writing, makes coming to your blog worth every single second! :) Yes, you ARE very lucky to receive that skirt!!!! I mean, c'mon..... it's PRADA!!! I would be psyched receiving anything Prada, even if it's just a Prada safety pin LOL. Anyway, I love the Babydoll silhouette and the moody teenager vibe you have going on.. oh, and I love you hair!!! 13 or 80, who cares??? lol.

Take care miss lady!

i think your grandchildren would be the coolest people on the planet (only, of course, if you marry johnny bravo)
i love your hair color, it doesnt seem to me like your and old lady at all! i think you kinda look more futuristic... idk it looks fantastic

Þomeline said...

I cannot think of anyone more deserving that you (yes you bubbe) to have received those prada skirts is what your grandchildren will say ♥

MAISON CHAPLIN said...

Tavi, you do not have to worry about what you dress amongst all those mere mortals.. Style is not about labels, but a way of living.

Best,
Albert

Samantha said...

omfg, Tavi. The last line cracked me up too much. I have totally been wondering about you growing for a while. I thought it was just me being creepy. Which isn't to say that I'm not, but I feel less creeper knowing you put thought into it too.

Lindsay said...

Waaaawwwwww coo Tavi..I'm jealouse of your life :) I wish I could be you in my 13rd years old..you are inspirations.

You are truly lucky (or just hard working...I guess a little of both), but I think you deserve such "little" treats for writing this amazing blog.

There's an article about you in Norwegian ELLE now btw :)

And you make me want to dye my hair blue/grey too...but that will soon happen anyway so I might not need to use dye...lol.

If someone from Prada sent me something , i would die instantly . Even if it were from the lowest ranked person that works in Prada . Hahaha ! That Lip Print skirt is reaaal nice , you pull it off perfectly .

I love the way you have styled what could have been a 'twee' skirt with some harder edged sheer and patterned black pieces. LOVE IT!

jasmine said...

Oh my god. No words. Well, just one. Jealousy. You're really so lucky - I'm 14, only a year older than you, but am in no way heralded as a young fashion genius. It could be just because I'm incredibly lame, though. Either way, appreciate what you've got, you have no idea how many girls wish they could be in your position!

Christina Barrera said...

How lovely! I'm so happy for you, that's such a great surprise, and in the mail on top of that! getting mail is pretty much the greatest thing other than Prada skirts. They chose I good print for you. I enjoy how the hair is fading!

Well, that's actually pretty amazing, and now you can talk to Miuiccia about the dog print, and this.

Lara said...

I don't know if anyone else has said this, but have you thought of wearing those shoes with chunky socks? It would stop them slipping around on your feet, and plus it would look cute :)
It would be a shame not to wear them other wise.

Mallory said...

Okay, so I really love that. One of my favorite things I've seen on your blog.
Also, I'm totally jealous! And find it very rad that your grandkids will call you Bubbe.

About...me? said...

Tavster (I say this as if I am BFF with you),

This post actually made me laugh a bunch of times. My friend Georgia, is looking over my shoulder as I write this and she is freaking out because she thinks I know you but I keep telling her I don't and she doesn't believe me. I WISH I KNEW YOU. In any event, you are supppeeerrrrr lucky these designer send you stuff! Never in my wildest dreams would I ever foresee this happening to me! Also, I decided to comment because for school I had to do this assignment on a book I read that was primarily based on the future. One of the options was to write a blog post commenting on what the world would be like in 2085. Ironically, just like you I said they were holograms! HA! I guess it is just one of those things that only I find funny, especially now that I write it out it is not funny to someone else at all.

Anywayyyy, if you would ever have a spare moment, if you checked out my blog I would be screaming as if I was the one who got the prada skirt!

You're too cool.

Gift packages from Prada! WHOA!!!!
I love the way you styled this one especially the first picture. The outfit looks great with your hair.

Smacko said...

Ya know, I kinda love your grey/blue hair! I think it's a unique and beautiful color for it to fade to.
And on the the subject of Prada sending you the goods? I am one jealous girl :)

That's a great idea to hike the skirt up and make it into a dress. I want to do that!

Very very cool to come home and recieve a package from Prada.

Shopper said...

I like the way this tee looks with your Prada skirt. Usual things like phones, bikes or parts of the body look grotesque on clothes from great designers.

I think I prefer growing, because I can buy new clothes and alter old ones.

(By the way, your hair rocks!)

Dark Pony Designs said...

Ummm- WOW! I love how your modeling this amazing moment outside your garage. Go you! I think if I had ever gotten something like that in the mail when I was a kid I would have just crapped my pants!

Dodo said...

It's always fun when people get confused by your hair. I once had very pink hair and people thought it was a wig. On vacation I tried some cheap wigs and people looked really weird when hot pink came out from under a brown wig xD

david said...

all I have to say is cool beans.

Vincent said...

Oh my, you're so lucky! I really would like to do something different with my hair but I'm so un-imaginative, hmm.

Wow, you lucky girl! I love how you've styled it. It looks great with the sheer top underneath it.
And your hair is looking wonderful! I love the grey colour it's gone now. It really suits your skin tone.

!!!! lucky!!!! seriously, I'd love any designer to send me anything (well, maybe not a toothpick...) You are really lucky!

On another note, could you, um, kinda, give me permission to use you as my inspiration. I design clothes (on my blog) and I'd love to make a mini collection based on your clothes (I'd draw child models XD not my stick figures)

Comment here, i'm watching follow up comments. And I don't mind you saying no :)

Tania said...

ah, my last comment made me sound like I see you as really small/young. I just meant that my stick thin models aren't realistic and what you wear would probably look strange on them :S

Sawasdee said...

I can't believe you're just 13. What you've been doing is making me jealous 'cause I wished to get involved in fashion since I's as young as you but It's too late now. Oh! I forgot introducing myself. I'm from Bangkok, Thailand. Second time visit your blog. So far I love it and adore your genius. Good job!!!

Im so jelous, those skirts are amazing! I think they would also look really cool if you wore the black lip one in skirt form with your vintage plaid dr.Martens or something.

Patricia said...

I've been reading your bloggeroo since the almost-beginning, Tavi, and I must say...

You've grown a lot since the beginning. Seeing your style evolve and grow — not just with your clothes or outfits, but also YOU! — is almost like having a distant relative or younger cousin that you just stare at in awe for all of the wonderful things she is accomplishing on her own and can't help but feel REALLY proud of her. Maybe I sound like a crazy person now, but you know what ... oops and too bad? Ha! You've decided to bring the world along with you on your ride into the fashion world, and I'm pretty sure there are more people who feel like this too. So I'm not the ONLY crazy person, right? T_T

In any case. Congratulations to you and all you do. Keep it up.
And I LOVE your hair at this mini-length, and the color. Keep it like this. =P

thanks so much.

I want your colour of hair. It's kinda perfect. I'm 13 also and it cracks me up about how your classmates and teachers react to how you dress. It's sometimes reminds me of some of the reactions I get. My favourite part of the outfit is either the tights or duh, the skirt/dress. Btw I live in Canada and its always too cold to wear skirts in the winter, so consider yourself lucky:) That is all.


P.S. I love the pin.

Subversive said...

Ok I don't think its the gray hair, but you seem taller? No you are just growing up in front of the world! Haha.
Anyway, you know you've made it when you get personally invited to a Prada Show. You are such an inspiration.
Keep up the hard work!

The gray and glasses are very Warhol. I love it.

Erin said...

I can't believe you did that to your hair! Looking like your 80 should be left until you ARE 80!

Tavi! I thought of you today after reading this post! I was shopping in SoHo and randomly stopped into the Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti store and guess what their new line is? huge LIPS! I'll be posting them on my blog later this week but if you're too impatient check out the site Philosophy.it it made me laugh to think of the co-inky-dink.
Much love,
Keep being exactly who you are,
B

cute skirt!!

Michael said...

OMG you have no idea how jealous I am that you have correspondance with Miuccia Prada and Rei Kawakubo. P.S., I just read your interview in POP. I lovedddd it!!!!

I think I would die if I met Miuccia Prada.

I don't know what would happen if I met Rei Kawakubo. Just the thought makes it hard for me to breath.

lyris said...

Meghan Roberts said...

Ah, j'adore my dear.

This outfit is perfection.

Looking back on your older posts, you have grown into such a gorgeous and stylish young lady. (Gah, I sound like I'm some 40 year old housewife reminiscing over my baby girl's path through life, when I'm only a few years older than you :p)

Well I ramble too much and this is lovely.

Tavi!
Forget the hair color. All of a sudden you look all grown up!In such a good way! I know you are not rushing it, and that is brilliant. I have no doubt you will keep it real!
Kudos! (could've added Kiddo but how gross would that have been. Yeah forget about it)Blessed be!

Cheryl said...

And the writing. Oh the writing!!Gaw! I'm in awe! Thanks for the insight and inspiration.

Arturo said...

Wow... call me immature for my age (I'm a gay 27-year old guy), but I want to dislike you. However, you are like my fave anti-hero. I wish I were as creative as you at that age. Bravo darling! Keep at it.

fashiondevotion said...

OOOOH! Lucky you!!! Gifts from Prada! The look is fab. And those Repettos are something you'll really want to grow into. Trust me I have a few pairs and would not be without them.

Hey Tavi. I'm from Singapore (which is nowhere in China's geography,thanks) and your blog is lovely. Btw, I think you look like the grumpy old lady who lives down the street and wears smelly kooky clothes. But cuter I suppose.

Lady Danger said...

Tavi I LOVE THE HAIR. MY used to have gray hair and then she tried to die it silver with henna dye (the best) but it turned kinda purple which LOOKED FANTASTIC and i think you should head in that direction if you feel like shaking things up. I always prefer the crazy 80 year olds anyway.

OH SO FONDLY,

i dont know which detail is my fav so cannot decide :) fab !!

Alison said...

I was going to say how lucky you are but I don't think it's luck you've been passionate and true about fashion because you love it and probably never expected all this - so hard work paid off ☺☺ Your hair is looking a little Andy Warhol - I think it's great that you aren't able to be put into a box!

Terri said...

what's your next hair color???!

dy of ghost said...

Lucy Marmalade said...

You are the coolest person I know. Or don't know, rather. But the coolness remains.

I love this post! Your enthusiasm and excitement are contagious. Congrats on the Prada skirt, I love that you got it from "Prada and the Missus", so cute!

I feel like this post more than any other I've read is truly inspiring. Right on, Bubbe!

Cherie said...

After that little ponytail your wearing in that picture, I am seriously considering cutting my hair like yours. But I'm not going to dye it blue-gray, because I am not that brave.

Ciao bella!
