can't look you in the eye

Oh man, I haven't posted in a week! I haven't been quite sure how to follow up on the Sassy post - mainly because, well, a new one is possibly in the works! - so until I can address that more comfortably I bring you an epiphany I was very pleased to have while singing showtunes to Kristin over Skype (Dreamgirls and The Sound of Music, if you must know, and BEAUTIFULLY, may I add, contrary to what the person on the other end might tell you):

There was an obvious kinderwhore Courtney vibe from Proenza Schouler's Fall collection but it wasn't until I was looking at Marc Jacobs for the millionth time (and, can I say, it is inspiring and fresh and exciting every time) (Ugh, I hate when you love something so much your stomach hurts! Unless it's the incessant amounts of Fruit Roll Ups. Or awful singing!) (Run-on sentences, ugh) (TOO MANY PARENTHESIS)


It was not until I came across this look again that I realized how similar it was to prom queen Courtney's dress in the Miss World video. And the Proenza dress is similar to kinderwhore Courtney's dress in the Miss World video. So I decided to post it. Because I haven't posted in a while. And I was excited about these references.

To conclude, I need more sugar.

i love the sound of music and marc jacobs!

Isn't it strange that an outsider like Courtney has found herself in the 'in' crowd in fashion? To go back to your 'Sassy' entry, Ms. Love herself has become that commodity who once was on the fringe.

wicked cool. Can never get enough of Proenza Schouler & Marc.

I ♥ that you ♥ Courtney. It just makes you so much cooler.

I like the black outfit.
P.S I found a huge stash of sassy the other day when I was poking around the house the other day...Funny but they were my 26 year old brothers? He is a graphic designer and liberal sooo he said that sassy is a great example of everything a mag should have.

You have to wonder: would the ringing of a doorbell really be a favourite thing of anyone in Nazi occupied Europe?

Other than that .... great movie choices. Courtney Love ... not so much.

stylespotterfashionblogger said...

Courtney Love is soooo cool! I love her. My fav pic of her is when she is sat in a car wearing a Givenchy dress (couture I think). I LOVE HER!

lOVELY ! ( as always )

Tavi , do you like men in skirt ?
If yes , welcome on my blog !
( where you 'll discover me wearing one ! ^^ )

Kiss-kiss !

Orphin Lasz said...

I have just recently discovered my passion for Proenza Schouler's dresses and overall aesthetic (Mostly, thanks to your blog, Miss Tavi; since here was the very first place where I saw a part of their work).

Either way, I guess I'm just trying to state how much I like your blog. So, keep up the good work! Until your next post!

I still love the word "kinderwhore".

Chloe Tweeny said...

the black outfit is definitely my favourite, and the word kinderwhore is just delightful! for some reason the dress looks a little strange to me

WendyB said...

All of this reminds me that I need to get Courtney's new album.

Richard Kilroy said...

I think i must be the only person who is bored of Courtney photoshoots. It's the same old 'Tit's & Ciggies' look everytime! Am I the only one who thinks this??

Rupert said...

When I saw the LV dress I KNEW it reminded me of someone - thanks for putting your finger on it!
I've had a little google though and I think the LV dress is MUCH much more like the dress Courtney wore to the Vanity Fair Oscsars party in 1995:

THAT was the dress that was somewhere in my mind when I first saw the LV dress but couldn't remember... apart from it being silk instead of velvety, or whatever marc used, they have pretty much identical cuts!!

AND - just for you Tavi - the dress is THRIFTED! Because apparently no majot labels would lend CL a dress that night coz they didn't think they'd get it back/want her in it...!! LOVE

cool post.

Every time they play Hole on the stereo at work, my faith in humanity is restored.

Hayley said...

Marc Jacobs does tht to me too!!...everytime I look at his collection my stomach hurts!...oh tavi you are such a great person!!!!

Catherine said...

I Dont understand the reference.

Anonymous said...

hole- courtney loves band?
she and kurt cobain seem to be everywhere because on the day of your sassy post i realised they were in my (old) copy of i-D

victoria.clow said...

Even the antithesis to cool is cool.

victoria.clow said...

Actually I take that back. Because fashion is 'cool', but high fashion is the misunderstood, twisted sister to folks like Abercrombie and Banana Republic. It's dark and it's art you adorn yourself with, and name a real artist that wasn't tortured inside and driven by something dark and indescribable. We create because creation is beautiful, not to be successful and make money. We are inspired by others whose creative drive secretly speaks to ours. So the seemingly dichotomous similarity makes sense after all.

Tabea said...

I can't see the video :-(
Oh, befor I forget it: I love your blog!!

Look on my blog, it's german...

xoLauraox09 said...

Argh! I need more sugar too. Tavi, your the best :)

Jem said...

great post connecting Courtney's look to the recent clothes designed by Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs. I can't wait to see what you have in store with the whole "Sassy magazine idea," I'm sure it will be great.

Anonymous said...


I'm worried about you and your addiction with sugar. Mayhaps we should talk about it sometime...preferably with a psychiatrist and a policeman in the same room? (Just to be safe!)(HA! I like parantheses, too!!)

Cherie said...

the sound of music is quite fun indeed. I sing it often, in a similarly bad voice. that and telephone. but i'm pretty sure everyone sings that badly, with the exception of lady gaga, of course.

Keep the Courtney photos coming. I had a huge obsession with her the whole of the 90s.
