More Miu, doo doo dooooo...
IMG_9504
Dress by Miu Miu, and because of FTC regulations, I'm supposed to tell you I was lent the garment to photograph by the PR offices.
Photo by Spencer, again. I think I was trying to do something Inez and Vinoodh-ish when I stood off to the side. It kind of failed but I like this as a film still? And it might be gimmicky but I enjoy church themes? And my hair looks totally white here, and kind of is totally white in real life, which makes me want to dye it pink, since I wouldn't have to bleach it (which is maybe the equivalent of scraping at my scalp with a chainsaw. A chainsaw that is on fire.) So, time to write another persuasive essay for my parents!

Oh, don't do pink! I like the white so much. You look gorgeous here as ever, though. Such a pretty girl!

Awesome I love the project that you did, Pink hair sounds good although I know nothing about hair dying and such business my closest guess of dying would be putting pink paint over my head my Mum would scream and the devil would appear in her eyes if I did that.

(happy belated birthday by the way! hope it was a great one)

Hannah said...

i'd say keep it white but my hair is also white and i also want it to be pink. so that would be kinda hypocritical.

Alex said...

This blog is awesome! Never seen a better fashion blog!
You look gorgeous too

Beautiful picture! You could have a career in modeling!
Also, go for it! Pink hair sounds so fun and youthful.
I love my turquoise highlights (even though my mom doesn't lol).

Pink would look lovely! Do it!

Gale said...

Oh yes, pink! Not some hard shocking pink - but a lovely soft pink. It would be rather retro - I know a cousin of mine who was a red-head was in a fashion show in the late 60s or early 70s and they made her hair cotten candy pink. It was amazing (I was just a little kid at the time but it was so striking that I remember it still. And even my mother liked it)!

Pink hair is SO hard to make work with clothes though

cancercowboy said...

pink? or maybe green? whatever, good luck convincing your parents.

Cherie said...

GASP! Please do! I'm getting green streaks in May. Yay for looking like weirdos with crazy dyed hair!

M said...

You are a real beauty, young lady :)
I love your white hair, the Miu Miu dress and the black and white picture. Awesome blog!!

Kim said...

You're right about bleaching it again. It would kill your hair, so if you do it pink, just do it over the white. Then when the pink fades out to white again, you could do it something different.
Also, using tons of conditioner would be good for your hair since you're dying it. When I dyed mine, I used a ton of conditioner, and just let it sit in my hair for almost five minutes in the shower before I rinsed it out.
Okay yeah, done with the hair-nerd tips now.
And happy late birthday. :D

*Coco said...

if i had to describe your blog with one word, i would say: inspiration

Ross said...

I that a combo of neked lady pint and crazy-fresh-cat print on that dress. HOT DOG, tell me that M. Prada, was all "Oh Tavi, my style bosom buddy, here, have this dress. You'll look marvelous in it!". Tell me those exact words came from her lips.

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

Oh I love this shot, it should definitely be a Miu Miu ad in a magazine! I adore you! xoxo

Vicki said...

Love the cnotrast of the white and black. Your hair and skin look amazing here. Love that it looks like a film still, please do more of these!! :)

Maia said...

i still think you should marry spencer!! i say you die it purple. it would look so cool mixed with the white. jeez tavi, you can pull anything off

Emily said...

this one has a David Lynch vibe. More Lost Highway than Twin Peaks.

I'm not sure about pink...it feels a little cliched.

Happy Birthday, btw. Can't believe I've been blog stalking you for almost two years. :-)

ainsleigh said...

I loved writing persuasive essays for my parents! I was quite chuffed when I received my pet rabbit thanks to an essay
For the record I think you should go pink!

Jessica said...

I really like your hair! It's totally different from other people! (I'm from the Netherlands, and i check your blog every day!

Respect!

firefly said...

Totally love the composition. And I wouldn't mind having blue/gray/white hair, but pink hair would be like a late present from the Easter bunny. Cotton candy hair! That would be cool. :)

Bella Luna said...

I love your hair white. It's boss. Pink would be pretty nice though. Can't wait to see what you do next!
-Luna

Alan Joseph said...

You had to write persuasive essays too?!? Eventually I started making PowerPoints to go a long with my essays because my words tended to mimmic my previous works. Best of luck to your pink wishes!! Try describing the pain you'll endure in the bleaching process. It'll show that you know about sacrifice. My parents were always impressed with that word.

You remind me of Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills:

I was indeed thinking your hair looked very white in the last post. Any bright color would probably take really well. Or are you still into pastels?

Cordi said...

I totally know what you mean about the chainsaw feeling you get from bleach. It is painfulllllllll. I would have to say you shouldn't dye your hair pink cause i remember when I did mine pink, it was like super awesome and exciting for the first 2 days but then it faded so quickly and it was so disappointing..

Michelle Dylan Lagerfeld said...

You look so pretty!

A said...

looooove your miu miu outfit!

Jennifer said...

I absolutely love your style and your sense of humor.

Pink, huh? Sounds like a fun adventure. :P

melina bee said...

I hate to break it to you, but unless your natural color is quite light, you will most likely still have to bleach/process your hair in order to get truly vibrant shades of pink (luckily the roots are not as problematic, so maybe the chainsaw just grazes your scalp?)

Julia said...

stunning picture.

AnneKMc said...

I don't think this shot failed at all. This picture is totally amazing. The church theme doesn't seem gimmicky with the emotion on your face, and the naked lady collar paired with the saintly vestige of a statue there is kind of amazing haha. Still, if you crop this down to just be a frame of you it's a totally incredible portrait.

V said...

aren't you beautiful.

Ganymede Girl said...

I say go for it, dye your hair pink if you really want to. It will be easier now than later and it will always fade the same as the blue did and you can enjoy the white then. I prefer the white to the blue but I'm curious about how the pink will look and you should just do whatever you want with your own hair. Bleaching again is probably not a good idea though because it will really damage it, when I bleached my hair my than once it became so dead and damaged that it wouldn't even accept new color and I had to cut it off.

Adore the hair. Pastel undertones would look great one you, maybe with even brighter white hair?
I feel like something is going to pop out of that window behind you! Still waiting.....

Sarah Margeurite said...

If you do pink, do a cotton candy meets bubble gum light, fluffy pink! It would look AMAZING.

Jill said...

good luck persuading your parents for pink hair!! i think hot pink would look amazing on you!! i am 14, too, and i can't even persuade my parents to get me a double piercing (it's like they're amish or something...)!!

Madeline and Sophie said...

Pink is a great new idea, i recently dyed a pink streak in my hair but it's blonde now and it looks like im turing into lady gaga!

Sheik Akashi said...

I love the expression on your face in this photo and the quality is very nice. ^_____^!

Church themes are definitely pretty and interesting. :3!

Oh and I think you should totally try the pink hair....or buy wigs, if your parents don't let you. I love wigs.. I have like 9 xD But then again, I need them for my crazy costume making hobby... lol~

Ami said...

Tavi, honestly I don't think you should dye your hair pink. It's not because I think it's crazy but because of these reasons: Dying your hair can damage it and it will become more brittle over time. Plus the color might fade quickly. Why don't you get wigs instead? With wigs, you won't damage your hair. I hope you understand why I'm warning you about the side affects about dying your hair and that you won't take it the wrong way.

But if you truly want to, that's up to you Tavi.

dressdarling said...

This photo is great, I don't think it failed at all!

I like your hair white, more than I think I would like pink. But that's just me!

Steve said...

If your essay works in persuading your parents, you should definitely put a copy in 'The new Sassy', so as to inspire other kids.

There are some super-conservative parents who don't want their kids to do anything that seems too strange, "OH MY GOD, are you doing DRUGS?! Blue hair means DRUGS doesn't it! No leaving the house until you're 20!" But, there are a lot of 'liberal' parents who are just as protective because they are afraid their kids will get picked on and abused if they be themselves.

I think they need to understand that there's a line between 'being yourself at risk of alienation' and 'pretending to be like everyone else at the risk of having a mental breakdown when it's terribly inconvenient (ie; your wedding day)'.

c_allie said...

Hello everyone! Great B&W shots, love it, just like the outfit, the Miu Miu collar is just so cool.
Anyways, about the hair, I think it's a GREAT idea! Doing the entire head pink is quite a mission though and will take ages, but my hairdresser suggested me something very interesting the other day (I have very blonde, short hair like you as well): Rather than dying everything pink, just doing the tips, like lets say 5-7 cm, whatever floats your boat more or less. i thought that sounded quite cute and wouldn't screw up the hair so much. Bon courage and greetings from Paris,
Catherine xx

Dina-Dyorre said...

You know what I noticed when reading your last couple of posts? You have just suddenly blossomed from something a lot of people defined as "cute" (forgive me for using your most-hated word :P) to a beautiful (hello cliche word number 2) young woman. I dunno, I think it might be the fact that you don't seem to wear your glasses anymore and you've dyed your hair and oh maybe the fact that you're now 14! Anyway, what I'm trying to say is I'm liking the transformation and that Miu Miu collar is DI-VI-NE :D

Glad to see your back in business!

Orphin Lasz said...

I think pink would look lovely on you, actually.
But I'd say, go for a light tone of pink; like a soft cotton candy, instead of a scandalous electric pink.
Either way, I'm sure whichever color you choose will look pretty ; w ;

▲K✄ said...

maybe a really really really light pink. or have the edges turn into a light pink. just no bright pink. might look gothic.

Hebden said...

Go for the pink...but be wary of the green option that some other commenters mentioned...I tried it once and ended up with Astroturf green hair, hands, and bathroom sink...

Do your parents really make you write a persuasive essay when you want something? Thats so awesome; if I ever have kids I am going to make them do that when ever they want something I am on the fence about.

oh my gosh your dress makes me want to die. i wish i had your courage :( kids at my school are so predictable when i wear one thing out of line (every day) they're like uhh, maybe you should borrow my sweatshirt.
"oh it's ok i like being NOT YOU :)"
