I Caved In And Bought Miu Mius And They Came In The Mail: A Tale in Three Parts

PART I
I said, "Oh." TO BE CONTINUED.

PART II
I said, "My." TO BE CONTINUED.

PART III
I said, "GOD!!!!!!"

~The End~
IMG_4477
I caved. After four (five?) dreams about them, a persuasive essay for my parents to justify my spending, and lots of arm-flailing in stress over whether or not they were sold out, they are mine. The good thing about being this obsessed with clothes is that I feel pretty certain that I will love mine all my life. I'll need a million storage units, but that's okay.
picnikfile_yMm3Cl
Hand-me-down shirt and bag, dress sent to me by Fred Flare (thanks Jen!), Miu Miu collar from the boutique and shoes from Bergdorf Goodman (ugh, I'm going to reread my persuasive essay to make sure I'm not crazy for being so obsessed with that collection.)

They are my middle school graduation present to myself, which is pretty pathetic considering the non-milestone middle school graduation is. You go and listen to a bunch of speeches throwing around words like Excellence and Community and Opportunity and Effort, all capitalized, and then you get your diploma and refrain from throwing your stupid cardboard hat in the air ("eye injuries," they say,) and then you leave. Or you leave and then buy yourself Miu Miu clogs and decide they'll be your special Now We Are In High School shoes, probably much to the disgust of your peers, but you try to justify negative feedback with misanthropy, well aware that this will probably result in incurable bitterness that will last you your whole life, but not caring. Um, it'll help me get through high school?

Perhaps you are wondering, WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT SHOES? Let me tell you: this is what's so special, perhaps! Tomorrow is my last day of Jezebel posting, but I can't say that'll make for more going on here. Summer means I have more time to blog but I also feel less like doing it, because I have entire days, every day of the week, to spend entirely at the library, or making things, or whatever. Until school starts, posts here will be less frequent, but the content will be more inspired. It's not fun to write when you don't feel like it, and reading posts that are obviously forced and uninspired and bored isn't fun, either. Like, during the school year, blogging is the most convenient way to be creative, but I have all this time now to really delve into it. Hope all your summers are going swimmingly! Get it? Swimmingly? Cuz it's summer? I need to go to bed.

I caved and bought the mary janes as soon as barneys put them on sale :-). Same with the miu miu cat eyes sunglasses.

rizkypuji said...

adorable :D too cute!! this make me wants a pair of cute clogs myself :D

mili said...

haha i wish i could relate =D i saw a pair of lanvin flats on sale the other day (from 500 to 300) and i still knew i wouldnt be allowed to give up three months allowance :)

cbenavides said...

I am slowly realizing that I will probably have to eat my words and give in to the clog craze. These are a prime example of clogs done oh so right. Excellent choice!

Jenna said...

Congratulations Tavi! I absolutely adore those clogs! Oh man....
You truly are a very lucky girl!

You KNOW how much I love those clogs! Good choice.

Cool shoes always trumps bitterness.

Caddy said...

Congrats on the shoes!

I loved your outfit it looks so chic and sophisticated in a slightly kooky way. ( I mean that as a compliment!) :D

AAAAAAAHHHH.

nice!

Jehh said...

nice nice shoes! :)
I love your new header. It's so you (despite that I don't even know you actually..hmm).

xxo.

zoomslow said...

The hard work, which has resulted in such excellence, provides the kind of inspiration that an entire community can benefit from. Those truly beautiful Miu Mius (!!!!) are certainly a fine reward for your effort and achievement!

N.B You may note my fine use of academically appropriate words there, but the congratulatory sentiment is very genuine!)

P.S I see what you did there at the start, with the words :-))

Isabel said...

Funny story: you got Miu Mius for gr. 8 graduation. I got Birkenstocks for high school graduation. Are you laughing yet? Haha. I miss you! NYC soon!

Gabrielle said...

wow! those is some damn fine footwear you've got going on there! congratulations on the rather epic purchase. definitely worth the fiasco i say!

summer sounds and looks so nice- its winter where i am....so all i can do is swoon over your summery outfits and golden summery glow while i shiver in woolen stockings and mohair rugs (does't sound too bad afterall!)

caughtcouture.com said...

Oh my, indeed. THE Miu Miu clogs...sighh. Would very much like to see the essay to your parents that got you those!

eat me said...

I also bought myself a pair of shoes as a "bitch, I'm done with high school" present.

Ella said...

aww you deserve those lovelies. gahhhh i really need some money.

supercalifragilisticespiallidocious said...

you changed your header ! i kinda miss that lady (was she old?) sitting in a chair and ..... knitting (was she knitting or just sitting there with a lotta blankets), but this looks good too :D

Faith said...

Those are so adorable! I was really not into the Miu Miu Spring '10 collection when it first came out, but once I started seeing how everyone on blogs and on the street styled all the pieces from the collection, I changed my mind. Love this outfit.

aanony said...

what happens if/when you grow out of them?

ayreesa said...

does your feet still get bigger? it will be bummer if you outgrow them. can't believe clogs are really making a comeback...again!

Tavi said...

aanony and ayreesa-I have some extra room in them! But not so much that they're hard to wear now :)

Jenna said...

This is ridiculous. I did the EXACT SAME THING TO MY PARENTS! I even said I would work out payment plans and everything and they so did not cave.
I hope you know how amazing your life is! And the Mius Mius are beyond gorgeous, just like all of their other shoes.

trina's reality said...

Middle school graduation present? Who wouldn't make up the same excuse? I know I wouldn't! ;]

vixxx99 said...

I am super jealous. no way would my parents ever cave and buy me designer shoes! But your Miumiu's are absolutely amazing. I haven't decided on my Middle School graduation present yet, but maybe a keyboard to produce my own techno music. We'll see.

Those are HOT.

Raeshelle said...

HAHA! Love it! I used to have to write persuasive essays too for my parents to understand spendings! Right now i'm in teh works of one for a new, better, camera! Night sweet heart.. and oh! I might have to borrow (steal) those shoes!!

You are getting closer to what you are about: mixing and matching clothes like nobody else, wether they are MIu MIu or Good Will does´nt matter.
Come on, become interesting again, please!!!

Sofie said...

Persuasive essay?! Why didn't I think of that!
Oh wait.. it did... and it worked too many times.
And it's making me broke.

It's perfectly reasonable for you to want those shoes. In my opinion, it's from one of the best collections of all time, so consider it as a collectors item.

enviedegranville said...

Um, why is it that I suddenly want a pair of clogs? Damn you, Tavi for making everything look good. No wonder companies send you free stuff, you send them clients... a lot of them. ;)

Katie said...

mmmm those are so wonderful. i remember you doing a post a while back about harold and maude and i just finished watching it after spying it on netflix. off to reread your post because i don't remember what it said.

Vicky said...

Haha. Sounds like you did anything to get those shoes. Don't worry. I would've too. I was quite partial to the cat print clogs. Ah, if only. x

=0 said...

Last year when I graduated middle school, I bought myself this AMAZING book. Before even reading it, I let a good friend borrow it a few days later. I have never seen it again. Anyway, gifts to myself are things that I enjoy justifying to my mother on a regular basis =)
By the way, great new header!
(and the honesty about not wanting to force yourself to post is so, so refreshing)

Meera said...

They look great! And I love the new "style rookie" pic.

The cost of extra storage is nothing compared to the experience of going through it all and falling in love with every piece all over again.

brodie said...

i'm jealous of your summa lovin'! it's winter here and it's effing freezing and i love your new header and the weird feeling i'm getting from looking at this picture of you and being like, "she's so grown up!"
you're blossoming (LOLOLOL) in front of the world's collective eyes- it's like you're the olsen twins for the online, 2000s generation/s. i feel odd for saying that but it's totz true BACK ME UP GUYS!....

GALA said...

Hello Tavi, the new heading of your blog is lovely!Trovo che ti rappresenta meglio.Mi dispiace, ma quello che sto dicendo non so scriverlo nella tua lingua.Ti scrivo e ti guardo da molto lontano. Dal tacco d'Italia! Trovo che sei en petit Tavi in Fashion-Wonderland!Ti prego,cambia la tua T-shirt per Borders&Frontiers.Fai stampare il tuo bel visino col fioccone rosa in testa.Sarei la prima a comprarla.CIAO!!

Sarah said...

Ahh I know how you feel! I recently just caved and bought a pair of Miu Miu Satin Platforms in the sale because they were just too beautiful to pass up! Of course I did stand there for half an hour justifying them to my mother before they were bought but with a special birthday and three weddings coming up, I think they will serve me well! x

I do always wonder with those heeled clogs tho - how on earth do they stay on your feets?

Þomeline said...

The new header is perfection! I love those miu mius on you, shoes are eternal, so no need to justify yourself such a purchase ;)

Molly Blues said...

hahah, i love your shoes, i can understand your obsession.

I just WANT SOME of this collection. it's not fair. I wish I could write a persuasive essay to my bank manager to give me the money. But I bet they've all sold out. Sigh. One day....They're gorgeous.

etoilee8 said...

You're like me. Any excuse to celebrate with shoes is a good one.

Raggedy Ann said...

I love you! Pure and simple. (not in a creepy way, though...)

sarahwinchester said...

The perfect gift to yourself. Somethings are better when you get to buy them for yourself. Congratulations! And congrats on you Jezabel stint...to get Nordstroms to call you...pretty big investigative journalism. Haha love it.

Emma Rose said...

They are so lovely, and I agree that you will love them (and many more things) forever. Middle school graduation does deserve a gift c:

teencreeps said...

Love them! I remember seeing your looks on lookbook.nu a year or two ago and going crazy over your clothes. Little did I know I would stumble upon your blog in my sister's bookmarks toolbar. Love everything you wear, and what I wouldn't give to own a pair of Miu Mius, especially those kitty heels.

Saun said...

Summer is meant to be spent out and about doing lovely things in the sun. If you're spending all of your time in front of a computer, you're not doing it right.

Enjoy your summer!

Emma said...

ohh those beautiful clogs are the compliment to any summer dress/shorts. Love them.
Have an amazing summer, sure you will have better weather than us here in Scotland. :) xxxxxxx

YES YOU, CLICK HERE :) said...

The Miu Mui Clogs are beautiful :)

Daisy said...

You and the shoes look fab !

Helly said...

They're gorgeous and I totally hear you about being obsessed with clothes but it being okay because you know you'll love them all your life. Only thing is, aren't you worried you might grow out of some of them (no age-poking-fun-at, I'm a huuuuge admirer, it's a genuine question) ?
You look lovely :)

walrus said...

okay, love the new title image, love that you wrote your parents an essay,love the shoes and shirt (very 80's, so going gaga naturally)
And shoes are awesome! They are, like, architectural platforms!


ps. see through shirt still inapropriate. i'm not kissing THAT much ass.

cancercowboy said...

wow, very nice new acquisition! the shoes seem to glimmer. currently reading through your Jezebel articles. your writing is witty as (almost ^_~ ) always and made me smile more than once. enjoy your summer and try not to feel too pressured to feed the crowd. better one good post in 2 weeks, that you feel you really wanted to say, than 4 mediocre ones.

E.B. said...

Ms. Tavi:

I highly love your summertime library plans. When I was about 14, I was OBSESSED with Dan Eldon's journal, The Journey is the Destination (crappy title, but still brilliant). He was a 19 year old photographer who was killed in Somalia and who kept really elaborate photographic/collaged journals. His mom combined them all into this book and it's essentially a giant tome of amazingly layered collages that are a combination of photographs he took of his various adventures, souvenirs, and paintings.

Not sure how available this book is at your local library, but that book got me through some rough adolescent years.

darling, the shoes are BEAUTIFUL. and I really dig the new blog header. (or new-ish? I have been lazy at reading my favorite blogs so maybe you've had it awhile)

Cat said...

Tavi, NOOOOOOOO. I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed.I mean, sure you can do whatever you want with your money, but clothes that expensive will never be worth it in my opinion. I know I wouldn't have looked twice had I seen these shoes at Target. And I have seen some similar shoes at such places...
You're too intelligent to cave in to labels!

This post made me feel two things:

1. Old. Because my first thought was "Omigod, what if she grows out of them?" Which is something my mom has been yelling at me for years (she doesn't seem to realize I'm 23).
2. A strange desire for clogs. Personally, I've never been a fan but they look so perfect on you! Definitely worth the cost.

Congrats on graduating middle school! You're gonna kick some major arse in HS and have a blast and great stories to tell! Yup. And great new shoes are a wonderful way to kick off the next chapter of education. :)

Have fun at the library! Make a splash: READ! (That cheesy saying is the summer theme for all the libraries in our state, haha).

(PS-I've enjoyed your Jezzie posts).

Dear Tavi, I'm following your blog since JAnuary. And I must tell you that I really liked it, but last times I see that you have changed you grew up, and all I saw in you disappeared. Maybe it all about that you get older and older, and I was looking at you as a small girl with her own fashion world who is older and look like a women now. Maybe I have changed. Anyway I needed to say this. Keep be blogging, and I will follow you and pleas don't delete me comment. (I'm from Poland sorry for my mistakes.

those are really amazing shoes!! I love to pair colorful shoes with really colorful stockings. Thought the way this designer did it was sooo inspiring- and some of the boots were insane!

The shoes are very becoming on you. Don't ever get rid of this stuff because it goes out of fashion or you grow out of it or whatever. (I say this as a very old person.)

Tavi, that skirt + the lovely new shoes + your hair + everything else is just pure perfection. I've pulled the persuasive essay thing myself a few times, good to know I'm not the only one. :P
