green apple

A while ago the boys at Proenza Schouler sent me this...band? Dog collar? I think it's one of those things for clutches but I never use clutches so I've taken to just clamping it on to different parts of my outfits.

top + clamp thing, gifts from Proenza Scouler. DIY'd skirt from dress from Salvation Army. yard sale belt.

I must say the clasp part is VERY mesmerizing and would probably be distracting if I wore it to school. The colors remind me of the bottoms of CDs, which are also mesmerizing. You could probably hypnotize someone with the shiny part, and then make them buy you more of these in more shiny colors so you can hypnotize them even more. It's practical, too!

Jenn said...

Hey, cool to see some of what you are wearing.

Which sounds super creepy. What I mean is, I take your ideas as inspiration for my own short little sallies into fashion outfits.

47 years old, and clueless about what I like in fashion... no, that's not right - utterly uncertain how to put it together to express me and still look put-together for the office (I work as a CAD drafter in an Interior Design Office - the trends there are represented in full, but the designers don't get creative with their outfits... )

derek nguyen said...

well thats creative tavi!

Eli said...

love it! i like the pop of green against the foral print. and love that you got the dress at the Salvation Army! My favorite dresses i got there! http://artofavantgarde.blogspot.com/

Ross said...

It's good you're tiny enough that this works as a belt.

Paddy Razzi said...

Hi tavi, I left this comment on your post about hole but I dont know if you will read that far back!! I put "you might find my post useful. I am such a huge hole fan so I collected all the official music videos I could find and put them all in one post. You can find it here" -

the moonchild said...

Tavi said...

Ross-I only clamped it onto a belt
paddy razzi-Thanks for the link!

Moonlight said...

I think you could probably use it for keys too, or a pencil case? if it's a really nice pencil case.

But i like how it gave your outfit a nice touch. Love the whole buckles and belts thing.

eat me said...

Wow, that's a quite nifty place to put it. I probably would have place it on the top handles of my school bag and tied it around the shoulder strap. But ultimately, not as cleverly placed as you.

Annie said...

LOVE this belt malarky going on!

Ross said...

Oh.... Well I thought the distressed leather and friendship bracelet like weaving went well with the oil-spill metal and green bits. But apparently you did too.

Izzen said...

Owhh, very cool / shiny / MAGPIE.

Haha, I'm sooo hypnotized!
I totally love this outfit, what a pity you didn't show all of it..
Lovely flowers <3

Gypsy said...

Interesting use of that collar/belt! I wouldn't have been creative enough to think of wearing it like that ~

Darling Petunia said...

Maybe you should have used it as a camera strap, eh? ;-)

mode archives said...

Love what you did to revive the life of this belt- the loop, the colours of your clothes and the additional strap..that is skillful, that doesn't come easy for some people..
