thrift shirt and skirt. gap sweatshirt.
Pictures I took back when my hair was blonde and there was snow outside and I wasn't all lazy and in a style rut like now. Any ideas as to what a story to them could be? I haven't the slightest idea.

How very thoughtful of you.

But really, I'm liking this. You're one groovy kid.

Lovely outfit!
I've been in a bit of a style rut myself lately. But don't worry, spring will come like a breath of fresh air.

You look so gorgeous in the first photo.

When I think of a story, all that comes to mind is Emily Dickinson... and blankness... but Emily Dickinson.

Beautiful photos. You look serious and thoughtful. I love them. xo

just had to let you know that these shots are fantastic.

holly said...

Once apon a time there was this girl and one day she lost all her inspiration. She realized only then was she complete.

GeorgiaSophia said...

This is such an amazing post, love the photos. Especially how the bed sheets lead up to you in the bottom one and the window! YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL IN THE TOP PHOTO!

blukats said...

This is a really sweet set! I like the grainy effect you added and the lighting. And what a nice outfit, makes me want to go thrifting.

Yes, you do look deep in thought and contemplation. There are so many stories that could go with this. Something from Ibsen or perhaps some teen angst or on a lighter note, what your next blog or outfit will be?

Ganymede Girl said...

I'm not sure about a story really but the last photo made me think about someone visiting a family member who is on their deathbed...sounds so gloomy and I'm not really sure why that came to mind considering the cheery yellow sweater and soft colors.

Becca Jane said...

I really like the fuzzy quality of these, great photos!

Erika said...

Personally, the slightly vintage aesthetic of these photographs, and the print of your top make me think of Sofia Coppola's "The Virgin Suicides." There's a very dreamy, ethereal like quality to both your outfit, and the lighting in these pictures. Love. :)

Criteriamour said...

Ugh, I know. It's so weird transitioning from winter to spring.

Kingston said...

An old lady remembering her Rodarte AW2010 past....

MADISON thing said...

The aesthetic is very raw, and real. I adore the first image, the story is hard to put in words since this is such a visual and ethereal post. A good title for this post could possibly be "Dreamer."

Mourning the death of hip-hop?

Livy said...

I think that this "story" could be a little girl (you) visiting your family but suddenly something bad has happened so you just sit there silently and expressionless.

xeroxahippo said...

I saw an older woman on the bus wearing glasses that are similar to yours. i love the use of what people consider "granny" items in your looks.

Jaime Moreno said...

Tavi this photos are amazing they semm like scenes from a movie, I could feel you disturbance and preocupation, I felt in love with this pic!

Raúl Valdivia said...

maybe you put these ones together after watching The Virgin Suicides for the 10th time? that would explain the hazy and aloof atmosphere, but on the clothes.. maybe you should do something crazy and spontaneous and uncommon, though I have no idea what something like that would be to you I'm sure it could help, it has helped me before

Irene said...

I think its lovely. The story is: you like a boy and youre waiting for him to come so you can hang out in a field where you'll pick daiseys and he'll throw grass at you. He texts you to tell you he has to go to his grandma's house. You are distraught.

Am I right?

Saryary said...

love the way your hair looks!
but still loving it blue;)
take care tavi(:

SO. said...

you should just make your own film. itll be frrreaaaking awesome!

chermayne-shenli said...

the noise in the picture made it look like you were in an 80s film or something . hahahaha !

Lovers, Saints and Sailors said...

Love it. I miss your little vignettes.

Mi said...

This is cool. I'm sorry you're in a so-called style rut, darling.

The grainy photo works really well with the floral print and cardi. I feel like I'm looking at some 1930/40s girl, waiting for some boy to come home.

But, you're too young to wait for boys, but you play the role very well. ;)

Maybe you could just grab a few things out of your closet and just....experiment? Just do whatever, and take a few photos, and maybe that'll help get the creative juices flowing.

Cheers,

-Mi

zoomslow said...

I like the first one the mostest. Um, you look like a writer sitting at your typewriter by the window - trying to summon up some inspiration. Yes, yes, a young poet of considerable genius - a young Sylvia Plath perhaps? Haha, I know that you're not such a fan of writing poetry, so perhaps it's that play of your's that you're working on? I hope so!!! ;-))

Very pretty! How's the blue holding up?

zoomslow said...

Oh, I forgot about your style rut :-( Well, I'm not sure what the weather is like there at the moment, but perhaps you could play on something seasonal? Really ramp it up - exaggerate the looks normally associated with such a season :-) Hope this is of some help...

oh dude, so epic.

I love this! <3

Marianna said...

Hi, I recently discovered your blog (and rediscovered fashion and art in general) and I LOVE it. I have no idea what I like in terms of style and visual art but I definitely like your emphasis on fantasy/storytelling/1960s pop culture.

As to the story. You're Irish. And you've just arrived in a small Midwestern town to stay with your very Catholic aunt and uncle. You're joining them on the pretense of looking at American colleges—but you're actually there because you want to get away from your cheating drug fiend ex-girlfriend and your fighting parents. You uncover a deep dark family secret concerning a half-cousin who is either disowned or dead. That's what you're doing in the first picture. But I don't know what happens after that.

50two said...

You're actually quite a good photographer!

Misery said...

You look like you're at least 18 in the first photo :) And these photos look like screencaps from some indie movie, lol :)

Jane said...

could the girl be waiting for inspiration? just like you're doing? haha possiblyyy....

THE SAILOR'S WIFE
-
SEE! There are tears upon her face-
Tears newly shed, and scarcely dried:
Close, in an agonized embrace,
She clasps the infant at her side.
-
Peace dwells in those soft-lidded eyes,
Those parted lips that faintly smile-
Peace, the foretaste of Paradise,
In heart too young for care or guile.
-
No peace that mother's features wear;
But quivering lip, and knotted brow,
And broken mutterings, all declare
The fearful dream that haunts her now,
-
The storm-wind, rushing through the sky,
Wails from the depths of cloudy space;
Shrill, piercing as the seaman's cry
When death and he are face to face.
-
Familiar tones are in the gale:

They ring upon her startled ear:
And quick and low she pants the tale
That tells of agony and fear:
-
"Still that phantom-ship is nigh-
With a vexed and life-like motion,
All beneath an angry sky,
Rocking on an angry ocean.
-
"Round the straining mast and shrouds
Throng the spirits of the storm:
Darkly seen through driving clouds,
Bends each gaunt and ghastly form.
-
"See! The good ship yields at last!
Dumbly yields, and fights no more;
Driving, in the frantic blast,
Headlong on the fatal shore.
-
"Hark! I hear her battered side,

With a low and sullen shock,
Dashed, amid the foaming tide,
Full upon a sunken rock.
-
"His face shines out against the sky,
Like a ghost, so cold and white;
With a dead despairing eye
Gazing through the gathered night.
-
"Is he watching, through the dark,
Where a mocking ghostly hand
Points a faint and feeble spark
Glimmering from the distant land?
-
"Sees he, in this hour of dread,
Hearth and home and wife and child?
Loved ones who, in summers fled,
Clung to him and wept and smiled?
-
"Reeling sinks the fated bark

To her tomb beneath the wave:
Must he perish in the dark-
Not a hand stretched out to save?
-
"See the spirits, how they crowd!
Watching death with eyes that burn!
Waves rush in-" she shrieks aloud,
Ere her waking sense return.
-
The storm is gone: the skies are clear:
Hush'd is that bitter cry of pain:
The only sound, that meets her ear,
The heaving of the sullen main.
-
Though heaviness endure the night,
Yet joy shall come with break of day:
She shudders with a strange delight-
The fearful dream is pass'd away.
-
She wakes: the gray dawn streaks the dark:

With early song the copses ring:
Far off she hears the watch-dog bark
A joyful bark of welcoming!

Lewis Carroll

Tavi, you look so much older! ;p
You are so creative hun. I'm loving your imagery.

Sarah Nicole said...

Gosh, Tavi. How old are you again? 13? How did you get so darn stylish and artsy? I started reading Vogue when I was 8 years old and sketching then too, but I only had a brief few years in high school where I was stylish and I mostly wore vintage clothes. I am so impressed, and I am sorry that people have turned your blog into their way to advertise themselves. I don't mean that I'm sorry to see it, I mean I'm sorry that you started this blog for you and because of how popular you got it turned into something you maybe didn't want (just judging that from you have said about it). I understand it must be so amazing to be getting all the press and get to go to shows and have free Prada sent to you, but I get what you meant in a couple posts back, sometimes it's harder to let yourself be yourself when others want you to be someone else. Your story is so fun and I am excited for your future. Even if we don't get to see how your future pans out, I think you have an amazing life ahead of you! : ) Sorry, I have a baby who likes to keep me from sleeping more than two hours at a time and sometimes I'm not very articulate! I hope you get what I mean, if you read this!

Sewon said...

I love that last photo! Keep up your updates, Tavi. I've been traveling and feeling like I've been in a style rut, too.

Sheik-Chan said...

Story? A misunderstood writer who lives alone,has a cat and loves her solitude?

xD I don't know...



P.S.
Why do so many people add their blog in their comment? Shouldn't it just be about comments...if you wanted to read their blog I'm sure you'd just click on their nickname right? lol. :3

stylespotterfashionblogger said...

These pictures seem quite religios, especially the last one. really like them though!

Arushi Khosla (FabBlab) said...

Damn you, Tavi, I can never get my pictures to look even close to this artsy while in a "style rut". EH.

Shelley Noble said...

Yeah, I've got a story for these... It's called "Gorgeous!"

theDUSKzone said...

The first thing that came to mind was 'The Diary of a Young Girl' by Anne Frank.

ushi sato said...

IM VERY HONEST!!!

I DONT LIKE IT...IT'S VERY COMMON...AND I DONT LURV IT!!!!


C'MON TAVI...GIVE US MORE!!!!

MY GOSSSHHHHH.....

CCWai said...

Well, I'm not really sure what the theme of this set is, but I really like how the tones and colors work out. They are beautiful!

By the way, I saw your photoshoot on madame FIGARO Japan. The photos were really nice! I like how you dress yourself in Comme des Garcons.

ochamilk said...

They all seem very Cindy Sherman circa late 70s. Excellent.
But the last image feels less connected to the first two. I know they are all the same day same outfit, but the lighting is so drastically different that it evokes a completely different story.
Anyway, they are lovely!

ushi sato said...

AN I GUESS YOU'RE ACTING LIKE THE OLD LADY IN THE MOVIE.."THE NOTEBOOK"...


BUT IM VERY HONEST...(NOT LIKE OTHER CREEP WHO PRETENDSTO BE NICE...DUUUHHHH????) I DONT LIKE IT...IT'S NOT VOGUE---ISHHHH....


I LURV YOU TAVI...BUT THE LOOK..IT'S EWRK FOR ME...

Hi jeune fille
Je suis française et je viens faire un petit tour sur ton blog devenu très connu,ma chère Tavi.Ton blog est très bien fait et très bien écrit,mais trop pompeu pour moi qui suis une inconditionnelle de la mode qui doit être portée par tous,et pas seulement par une petite poignée.Je pense que plus tard tu pourras devenir une grande rédactrice de mode.Tes sujets sont bien rédigés,pertinents qq fois,et de très belles photos.Je te souhaite bonne chance,beaucoup de succès avec ton blog.Bye,bye

Quirkygirl said...

Love your skirt and the shirt!
for some reason, when i first looked at the photo, it reminds of someone who is like sick in bed and you come to visit them....those could be some ideas for your story writing! ;D

chattypatra said...

You look so much like Michelle Williams in these pictures; just lovely. I may not be as stylish as you, but I do appreciate fashion, creativity and individuality. Sometimes, when I'm sad, I come to your blog and it always makes me feel better. God bless you. I wish you great joy.

morganpony2 said...

Granny, waiting for the wolf.

Ms. Wedgie said...

Love the colours...very English rose.

I think your story should be Jane Austen with a modern twist...you could even go as far as basing the story on 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' (awful book but I still loved it).

A pensive mother, awaits here son/daughter's arrival home, hoping, praying for their safe arrival. I don't quite know if that's what you were looking for, but the long (?) skirt, and the textile's pattern remind me of the woman during Vietnam.

It reminds me some how of Audrey Hepburn in The Nun. Really like it though.
Or perhaps a religious girl who became pregnant and is now attempting to pray her way out of it.
All good stories. I love the lighting.
Get out of your style rut, girl!

Great series of pictures! I just look at them and think of Girl Interrupted or perhaps someone's great aunt waiting for everyone to visit her at the new nursing home never realizing that she gave her family the wrong address.
I have a lot of time on my hands for I too am in a style (and everything else) rut.

Awesome outfit. I'm thinking the story could revolve around someone waiting for something... I'm just not sure what :)

How long have you been in a style rut? Whenever I'm in one I dress intentionally ugly, not even ugly in an haute way but way over-the-top&what-the-hell-was-i-thinking-ugly. You should try it! It's fun.

djuliwood said...

Beautiful pictures, especially the trashy 'filter'. To me this is a story about a good girl, that has done something bad and has been sent away to place where nothing bad could be done. I see both regret and indifference/apathy and really like the ambiguous atmosphere.

Check out my photo-blog at djuliwood.tumblr.com :-)

smellychick said...

You're trying to figure out what shoes to wear in the first one, getting impatient and tapping your foot in the second (it is implied, my dear), and in the last one you're praying for guidance.

OBVIOUSLY.
Amiright?

Meurice said...

...how about "little love" instead of big love. It has that prairie-chic vibe....

something that has to do with modesty/traditional values/western americana....

Kate said...

wow there's already a million comments… but I just wanted to say that the way you're sitting next to a bed like that makes me think that the person in the bed just died. Also something about it reminds me of Lars and the Real Girl.

Yay! I like the yellow sweater and the "soft" quality of photos. For the story, maybe something about a grandma who's house gets snowed in and she's thinking, and then outside she sees a lot of weird stuff like flying cows and huge balloons outside, and then after reading an editorial realizes she fell asleep? I don't know. Your pictures make me feel like eating banana flavored food now.

The first picture reminds me of-- wait for it-- depression medication commercials! Yay! http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/0j/kh/deal-depression-naturally-200X200.jpg

The second one makes me think of the tied-sweater style of Fay in What About Bob, except not quite as cheery as she was. Pale colors and black lace=not a happy 90s mom.

The third photo makes me think of oatmeal people. Angela from the Office (except a very sad Angela, not an annoyed/mean Angela) and Harold Crick from Stranger Than Fiction. Oatmeal people who sit at home in their oatmeal colored rooms with oatmeal blankets and do things like ?pray? http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20080226/293.kinsey.wilson.office.022608.jpg

You look so pensive and the outfit is so cute.

No joke, I wish I looked like this when I was 13 years old. I'm sure you probably get that a lot, but honestly, your style inspires me and I am 17. Usually I associate middle school with abercrombie, but you give me hope that girls can look stylish and unique when everyone wants to fit in and wear the same thing.

But i love your blog, so it doesn't matter what your hair color is......

Thanks!

FND said...

Im with Tavi on the hair thing. Why not color your hair grey, coz you want to, when you can. I mean, imagine if suddenly you have the itch to go electric blue but you're the head of some department in a bank or something. Definitely not happening there.

Do it while you can and have pics to look back and smile at. I wish I did.

Okay you know what is nuts? I look at these again and I think of Marisa Coulter from _The Golden Compass_. Like, when she was younger.

In the first picture you look strangely like David Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth, but obviously much prettier.
(and in his human form, not the terrifying alien one.)
Seriously!

I've got something. I was trying to explain Rodarte to my Mom, and I told her it's what a zombie ballerina would look like... INSPIRATION OVERLOAD!! Yes. Now I want to look like a zombie ballerina everyday. Also watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer helped me.

You are a brooding artist alone in a country house, waiting for inspiration.

felicity gleeson said...

something very big love about these, the washed out colours add to this i think.

Russian girl secluded in her house while her husband is out at the great war! : ) More precisely, World War II!

Or... an indoor exploration of the house where you found a new polaroid camera and scanner and *GASP* COMPUTER !

Caddy said...

That first shot makes you look older, it reminds me of Gwenyth Paltrow or Grace Kelly

There's a Miranda July story in No one belongs here more than you about a teenage girl who has a black cloud/shadow/thingie as a lover.
Reminded me of it.

kind of old ladyish, strict, proper, plain.......it almost reminds me of a vacation home, which is wierd.....love the blurryness of the pictures. they make it look hazy, like a memory.

Fleeting Sunrise said...

reminds me of england in the best way possible.

Maxim said...

Love the way in which the first and second picture seem to fit to each other (apart from your arms), like you took a picture of your head and shoulders and then moved the camera down to take a picture of your torso while you were in the same pose. Although your shoulder are twisted.
I just like accidence.
(Sorry for my crappy English)

yeah !

I really like the overexposure and grain you're using in some of your photos. It seeps into my brain without me noticing and makes me thing things are dreamier than they really are. Which is pretty damn dreamy.

Those pictures look like shots from a film. I love how the jumper is over your shoulders, kind of like a posh harvard child?
For some reason, i straight away though of war. You were waiting for someone to come back from war. I suppose it doesnt make sense.

StrangeAsAnjles said...

I love this little set. It's very Sisterwife-Sevigny [it's a word, trust.]

Julie said...

Tavi - love the pics -- the graininess gives them such texture and depth -- very American Gothic-esque to me.

Camila said...

Tavi, i loove your clothes and your styles! I'm a big fan of yours

My trendy blog said...

Hey,
Your blog is really amazing !
And your style and your photos !
I love it !
Sorry for my bad english but I'm french and I'm your " biggest french fan " . ;) ♥

Jinnyd said...

A story? Even though there are tons of comments about it... I think a story that would fit nicely would be one about a person waiting for someone.

Or waiting anxiously for something.

JO said...

Hey Tavi i'm Josephine.
Those pictures are quite funny you know! i love woody allen a lot and there, you remind me the atmosphere in a woody allen movie and it's also weird because you have a certain ressemblances with scarlett johansson... !!!!
