run away, it's divine

As all these stores begin stocking Fall stuff ("But it is July," you say! "I don't get it either," I reply!) I should probably get up all these pictures from when I borrowed Miu Miu's Spring line, eh?
dress (skirt and collar poking out) and shoes borrowed from Miu Miu, American Apparel sweatshirt, Timex watch, random hair ribbon, socks from Isabel. (FTC disclosure: sweatshirt and watch were sent to me by the companies.)
You see, I remember that at the time that I took this picture, I had a whole story to go with the character and the smile and the blue hair and the church and the shoes in the basket, but that was so long ago, as I am a gigantic lazy wimp who doesn't edit photos for months, that I have forgotten it. So I am going to make this as easy for me as saying "And then I woke up!" to end a bad story: use your imagination, kiddos! Wee! Summer! Etc.


Belle said...

Those are some seriously gorgeous shoes... although I'm slightly prejudiced because they have cats on them and I've never been a feline person. But I adore the height... I'm a bit of a midget.

Oh, and your writing style and sense of humor is just absolutely stunning, adorable, and hilarious. Brava.

Alé said...

Today is the 6th, but your post says it's the 7th!
Are we in the TAVI DIMENSION!?!
Shizz you bet we are.
Goodness I see that MiuMiu looks amazing on you and I am sad, not for that matter, but simply the matter that I'll never be able to obtain anything from this beloved
collection. (Let alone a cat collar!!)
So maybe when I'm a million years old and I can actually afford it all, I'll buy EVERY SINGLE PIECE made. And no, I can't say even the "bad" ones because there Are NO BAD ONES. phew. Okay.

Love those shoes! Wish they came in a pug print too ;)

Alyssa said...

Really fab first photo. Those Miu Miu items look like they were designed especially for you or something. I've always loved red and light blue together.


Sofie said...

Wow, you must be in my timezone!
It's the 7th here in Australia. Or maybe you're still in your timezone but from the future?!

Anyhoo, great photos! I love the colours, perfectly styled, great job! :)

This combination of strong & pale colour is like something from a Godard film. I'm sure through these images you were trying to express your deep love and respect for French cinema!

Eleanor said...

I really want those shoes!


E said...

Im new here!
OMG I just thought you are still growing and sometime your feet will be too bigger for your shoes!! do you have more sizes in stock? ;)

Shopper said...

I guess I can't walk in shoes as high as those, but standing in them would be cool enough. Nice outfit, I like when elegant dresses look like totally comfortable home stuff. And heels with socks rulez.

Vanessa said...

Ok, imagination time! Ah! Ok, you flew through a bubblegum cloud and your hair became blue. Then you fell in a giant pot of red sherbert. and then went to church... Ok I will try again later...

Great post! Would have loved to know the original story ^^

xx Vanessa

mispapelicos said...

I love when you put outfits together, as it used to be. Great, the old Tavi is back!!!!

Chloë said...

the shoes are amazing, there's really not much other to say. i want them. sooo bad.

Gladys Fashioncancer said...

We all get a little lazy at times. :) Love the miumiu shoes. Some day i shall save enough and splurge on myself.

Laura said...

I want to steal your shoes tavi :D You look amazing!

tica said...

Hi :)
I was wondering if you knew where I might get my hands on a pair of those Miu Mius in plain black? Same model, only without the print.

La Petite Anglaise said...

the Miu MIu S/S collection was so lovely. The printed shoes and dress are adorable and slightly kitsch but still manage to be totally chic and modern at the same time. I love how you mix them up with the sweater and knee socks. X

Tere said...

Hello! This is the first time that I visit your blog and I see is very nice!!
I love your style, very elegant and modern!
Good photos!!

High Fashion Whore said...

You have a very inspiring sense of style which I think is what most of your followers admire you for, but I think your 'voice' is the most incredible thing about you. People don't realize that the individuality of one's voice is what makes them so likeable to others.
And I deeply respect that you want less time blogging to spend more time in personal recreation, because It's summer, and us teens need a little down time. Your doting followers can wait.

Lady M said...

You and MiuMiu is so cute:)

Sootjeelina said...

I love your blue dress!
And so cute heels

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

johanna said...

your outfits are so crazy but I guess that's why you're so "famous". I really really like you and your blog and your sense of humour.




G.Allen said...

I love the collar because it just adds something. And I wish I could see the miu miu shoes in person.

Emilie said...

Those shoes are amazing, the skirt and the collar lovely!
I love MIU MIU collection this season!

HAIKALcium Lowfat said...

amazing, the fact that you don't look frumpy in that red jumper makes this styling even greater! kudos as always.

ólöf said...

I really like that outfit..not really that shocking..since it's pretty hard to mess up Miu Miu..but I love it really..with those socks and sweatshirt as well..

Loïc Laugier said...

Amazing pictures, amazing shoes. As always, Miu miu is beautiful at every time of the year Aha !


revital said...

lovely photos! too bad you cant remember the story you had in mind..


Christina said...

Love the outfit. I never remember all the amazing things I was going to say in my outfit posts when I finally post them. It happens to the best of us.

Zabrinah said...

Wonderful. Love it. Love everything!

Best Wishes,



Kelly said...

I love you.

Q said...

Darn, a want a pair of those shoes... or ANYTHING from that collection. Gah! Well, good blogpost Tavi, im just incredibly jealous of you!!!


come to my blog or i'll eat your cookies.

Emily said...

fall clothes are released in the summer because a bajillion years ago when rich ladies traveled all summer they would buy the new fall fashions while abroad so they could be ahead of the curve when they came back to the states.

If they weren't shopping abroad, they had people making their clothes here so they would be ready when the weather changed.

at any rate, it's a holdover from that.

love the bike.

Samira said...

I love .. no, adore those shoes!!!
lucky you!

I have just recently started reading your blog (very finger on the pulse I know!) and just wanted to say how much I enjoy it. I think your writing style is great and several times I've laughed out loud at work giving away the fact I am not actually doing any work...

Your photos are fab and I find your sense of fun and play with fashion incredibly inspiring.

I doff my cap to thee squire.

junè said...

i just thought this: i wish i could jump in that second pic, get on this miu miu shoes and riding away with the bike - adiossss i will never come back with this shoes on!" haha :D x

Isabel said...

Oh duuuude! I sent you those socks ages ago! Totally forgot about that, but so glad you still have/wear them.

I am loving the shoes, Tavi. Your smile and overall outfit are adorable.

Caroline Paul said...

The story for these pictures is as follows (at least in my imagination)

This is a 11 year old girl, who on her way to church one morning found these shoes abandoned in a shopping cart. She deposited her saddle back oxfords by the base of the tree and slipped on the oh so scandalous (by her churches standards) heels and naively paraded them around the sanctuary unaware of all the older ladies stares.

Patricia said...

cat shoes! oh that's love!!


sally said...

love those clogs. you should never return them :)

brunchatthebeach said...

Masha said...

wow great outfit. and as always MIU MIU story))) I posted a lot of picture with MIU MU clothes from the JALOUSE magazine.


Anastassia Chepelkevitch said...

In my head (no, I am not quoting Jason Derulo, I prefer not listening to songs that start with an overdose of auto tune) you went to Target, and were trying to find that one light beige Rodarte for Target dress, and then realized Zac Posen has his line there, now! In a fit of rage, you took off your shoes and threw them. Obviously, your feelings had drifted towards regret and guilt, so you placed them upon the shopping cart and drove them all the way home. To avoid any charges, you returned the shopping cart the next day.
So does your hair look bleached now, or still a bit of bluey?

Lollipop Girl ! said...

I love those shoes !!! :D

Zany Style said...

kitty cat shoes, naked lady skirt and a collared bird shirt... everyone needs one of those!!


Sylvia etc... said...

Hi Tavi,love how you've mixed the AA sweater with the miumiu neckpiece, relaxed yet super chic!


foilsplinter said...

I have this blue hair colour! Maybe I was unconsciously inspired? Who knows but I love it on you (even though you no longer have it)

kelly frances said...

OH GOSH. *Shoe orgasm* Those Miu Miu are just amaaaaaazing !
Lucky you.

btw I love your blog. Yeah I know it's not very original, I guess you heard that one a million times. Kiss

Carissa said...

oh my. that shoes!

Laura. said...

the shoes are to die for!!!!


Evan said...

you are such a darling and those shoes look divine on you!!!!!!

cancercowboy said...

you look stunning. now, thats nothing new, but the red... yeah! it works damn well with the rest (it would even without the stripe on the socks) and its very becoming to you imho.
you manage to make MiuMiu look elegant and comfy at the same time. these people should have let you keep at least the shoes.
anyways, what else is there to say about you and this collection that hasn't been said before? Well, this almost antique hooter kinda steals the show ^____^ i wonder what it sounds like. btw, was your bike able to fly while these shoes were in the basket?

Vanessa said...

you are so lovely and funny, can I please meet you? I love how you're standing infront of a bright red door thing. it really works. awesome outfit.

Lyndranette said...

love the outfit! those shoes are so cool! work it gurl! ;)

nathaliehelennn said...

love that picture of you! the outfit is great, love the colors, especially your hair! works well! and i like your smile, too (like that couldn't sound creepier or anything...)! nice blog! wow, that was an excessive amount of exclamation points. gotta calm down from all that commotion. well... bye.....

Gabrielle said...

hallo tavi wieder!
obwohl Sie nicht deutsch sprechen können, habe ich die Lust deutsch zu sprechen. Ich bin nicht normalerweise eine Katze-Menschen (ich mag lieber Hunde) aber diese Schuhe sind die beste! Ich liebe auch alles über dich und deine Bilder sind schön!
ich wünsche mir, dass ich Miu Miu Kleidung und Schuhe kaufen könnte, aber ich habe nicht genug Geld! Schade!
Viel Glück mit die Zukunft.
Alles lieber Gaby!

love the socks! I always though long-socks and a dress or shorts during winter instead of long pants was very f.o.b teeny bopper asian, but you make them look amazing. I love your dress-style. do other people in your area dress like that too, or do they go for the skinny jeans look?
