"spencer tweedy is a photographical genius" -spencer's suggestion for this title


Rodarte for Target longsleeve (FTC disclosure: I received clothes and compensation from Target for my collaboration with Rodarte for Target.) Vintage leather dress. Thrifted purse.

This amazing photo (Film! Unedited! Like the good ole days when I wasn't alive!) was taken by Spencer when we drove to his cottage with our buddies and his family, only to have very little time at the cottage itself. Too many Culver's stops. And Wal-Mart, where we all took a completely non-awkward family portrait. Golly, we may be just about the handsomest family in all the land. Also at Wal-Mart, Dana and I bought Spencer a hot pink maternity shirt that said "Mama needs a time-out," complete with an illustration of a martini glass. I think he secretly hates it because he still hasn't worn it out, but is afraid to tell me in case it hurts my feelings or insults my maternity wear sensibilities.

Spencer is a photographical genius. This makes me miss film.

And hooray for Culver's. Their frozen custard is the best. I wish we had them where I live.

Spencer Tweedy said...

i love the shirt.

no really.

Aubrey Mayne said...

omg, that "Mama needs a time-out" is the best shirt ever... especially for a guy. Home run Tavi ;)

He was right, in an unwholesomely non self-depricating way ;-)

Gorgeous meeting of the minds/looks here.

Mitchie said...

you should of taken some pictures in the forest as well!

Madeline and Sophie said...

Spencer does need a time out... the baby is too hard to deal with, Tavi, don't you understand it's too much for him to get dressed?!!?!

mila said...

Awesome picture! Nice tee shirt. Perfect for him....kidding! ha.

Viki said...

hahhahaha i'd love to have this wal-mart's shirt! :D

bravegrrl said...

amazing photo!

WendyB said...

Sounds like that maternity top would complement my souvenir t-shirt from Gypsy with "I'm a pretty girl, mama!" written on it. I'm available for photo ops.

favio said...

Lovely photo, lovely light, and lovely angle xD

Lovely Tavi too,


I think this image is all very much lovely

S. Bernstein said...

Oh man this is amazing!!
The citrus-y yellow of the flower in your hair with the inky blue-black of the dress, the green in the window contrasting (opposite sides of the color wheel!) with that super rad red!
Wow.
Tavi and Spencer, you guys are so cool.

The Purple Boot said...

My mother become concerned the other day when I entered a Maternity store completely calm. She pulled me aside and asked me if there was anything that I wanted to tell her. I was confused. She pointed out the fact that we were knee deep in belly-land, strollers and large bellies included. I pointed out the long draped tops.

I doubt there's anything wrong with your maternity sensibility, Tavi

Like it.
Like the light in her hair.

Like the reds and the breaker line in the middle.

Seems like she's off the wall.
Out of life.
In her reality...

It is difficult to disagree with you about the photographer, has talent and is not contestable.

Spencer has a point, I know nothing whatsoever about photography but this shot is lovely to look at. Your writing is witty and interesting as always. X

John Bernal said...

I'm convinced that Spencer is a genius. Also, that cottage reminds me of the schoolhouse in the "Are you also wistful?" video.

Meagan said...

Ahhhhh love. His photographs are so magical, I adore his blog. The shirt sounds fantastic... =D

MimiSalvatierra said...

wow!! I really loved it :)

Hannah said...

I feel weird leaving a comment on your blog..for fear of sounding and being like everyone else. =P but I'll say this: like your blog, this photo is awesome (go film!) and you're so funny. you're style is cute too.

Kaytie said...

i'm pretty jealous that youre tight with the tweedy family. wilco is my fave fave favourite band ever

Subversive said...

Beautiful photograph. The 24 hour Wal-mart is where I go when I'm bored. Wal-mart has a lot of strange characteristics, but that's why I love it.

zoomslow said...

Interesting picture! :-) It looks a bit like one of those creepy Stephen King movies.

You crack me up.

SabinePsynopsis said...

I'm a big fan of Spencer's photography! One day I will try out 'old film' again - but for me it would be the 2nd time round. Nothing wrong with maternity wear, is there?

sarah said...

spencer tweedy IS a photographical genius.
just saying.

Dirty Hair Halo said...

I think you should be a guest judge on Project Runway.

You'd be perfect.

Think about the great opportunities for all of your colorful commentary.

Let's make it happen.

I'm emailing them. IN CAPS.

I love wearing maternity dresses. The "is there something you aren't telling me?" questions might even add a little to the appeal. For some reason I find it all highly entertaining.

Bianca said...

stripes rulez in this season but for me more important is vintage character of clothes and photo so i say: yes! Spencer is genius;)

kristyfruition said...

I absolutely love your bow hat/headband thingy. It's so Quirky and WHIMSICAL you're like a real life cartoon. The bow should definitely be your trademark silhouette forever. Imagine a 90 year old you with it...TIMELESS.
