August 9, 2010

writing this post was just so exhausting that i can't even think of a good title. and it took me seven minutes to write this one.

This is the kind of outfit that literally falls apart as you walk. It is a pain in the ass, and like, the way the pink dress at the bottom is going way too low is really bothering me right now, but at the same time, these heavily layered outfits that I have to constantly fix and aren't the most flattering are still my comfort zone. Dressing this way is such a great shield and I can't wait until it's not infinity degrees so I can get back in the overdressing every day zone.

So the references here: this Japanese street style photo, this cigarette carton, this girl's pink hair and cat and pink dress with cats on it, Ouija boards, this creepy cat, and CL's dress and pink fairy guitar strap on a seafoam green guitar. I guess like...fairy incense-smelling witch satanic cat hippie granny? Sounds about good to me.

Oh, this is random, but my talk at IdeaCity from back in June is now up. I'm afraid to watch it but if you're interested, it's here. I wrote about it a while ago, here.

And now the longest outfit credit list/breakdown ever:

This brooch used to be my grandma's and was added because it kind of reminds me of that cigarette carton. Same with the vintage bolero. The pearl necklace, which also used to be my grandma's, is for the sake of the granny vibe, and the Forever 21 feather necklace is for the hippie.

T-shirt is from the folks at Blood is the New Black. Satanic kitty! That sounds like an awful band name, but is not bad in t-shirt form. It was a bit too oversized for my liking so I cut a bit off the bottom.

This hairclip Monsoon Accessorize sent me is to counter the feather necklace and the colors are right. This coin purse thingy is from a family friend from a market and I added the ribbon.

The mint green shirt is a hand-me-down, added for Courtney's guitar. That off-white pleated dress is a gift from Fred Flare and is one of the only simple things I can wear without guilt because it's just so prettyyyy. Added with Courtney's dress in mind. The bow skirt is a gift from the ladies at Polly Sue's Vintage, added because its colors sort of tie in all the other ones in the outfit, and for the layering proportions. The print is kind of rad with the clogs, too. The pink mermaid-ish dress is vintage.

Miu Miu clogs from Bergdorf Goodman, added for the hippie vibe, the colors, and to counter the illustration from the bow skirt. I can't remember where this horn bracelet is from but I added it to make the outfit more gritty and less saccharine. The watch, like all my watches, doesn't work, and I got it at a local store when I was little.

That was so exhausting that I'm going to use it as an excuse to do nothing for the rest of the day.

I'm liking Satanic Kitty a lot.

Maia said...

omg tavi in forever21! ps. i also struggle with my clothing falling off as i walk :)

WendyB said...

"heavily layered outfits that I have to constantly fix" -- I'm so glad you said that. I avoid layers like the plague for that very reason -- they're so fidgety. I had imagined that all you layering bloggers had figured out a way to keep everything in place and that only I couldn't manage it!

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!
WendyB-believe me, it is quite a hassle sometimes.

Midwest Mayhem said...

Love the kitty purse!

zoomslow said...

“Dressing this way is such a great shield” – yes. But then paradoxically (yay for big words!) I also think it gives you a kind of ‘accessible’ vibe -> like If I saw you somewhere I wouldn’t be too scared to maybe have a chat… I’m not sure why?

Caroline Paul said...

Yay an outfit post. Love it. More! More!

April said...

layers are indeed a bitch. but the important thing is, they look great. except when you're fidgety all day. ha. but in photos, they look fantastic! love the colors here :)

Cara said...

The first inspiration picture was my laptop background for days now. OMG we looked at the same picture. (This is a big thing for me ha)
Your outfit is too layer-ish, Tavi-ish, Tokoyo street style-ish for words. Except amazing.

<3

Lovers, Saints & Sailors said...

Girl you did an amazing job!

Now go and have a pink Nesquik and do nothing.

the ghost factory said...

hey tavi, long time reader, first time commenter!

GURL. i've been in love with layering ever since stepsister from planet weird came out on the disney channel. (if you haven't seen it, i think you'll LOVE it.)

summer is the worst for layering, though. got any suggestions for adding texture + color without the extra fabric?

eat me said...

Wow, what a fantastic outfit. The entire look reminds me of fettuccine alfredo on a nice windy day.
But the heat here in Caleephornia hasn't been too bad but I'd be in pain if I couldn't lair too.
*two thumbs up*

christie! said...

Your video was SO inspiring to me! I am a Christian feminist who goes to a private college. Our college is progressive in some ways and the professors are awesome but soooo many of the students are still suggesting that women not be pastors and always yield to their husbands. It's just plain refreshing to find out that I might not be the minority in the real world.

You know, you could also be an "ageist" or a "youngist" or something because I never realized how awesome 14 year old girls were until I started reading your blog.

Mouthwash said...

this...is...incredible. WOW!! I love this outfit of yours!!!

And...that cig. box is amazing.

Heather Paske said...

I really enjoyed the idea city video, I've just been a distant admirer of your writing thus far and it was nice to see you speak on some really important topics. I really commend you for being brave and speaking about the importance of a magazine/publication that embodies the great things Sassy was for girls in the 90s. If anyone has the power to make that happen, I think you do!

Definitely also makes me happy to see you speak about the importance of taking away the negative connotations of feminism in the younger generation today. Being bold and confident and trusting in the importance of getting involved in social commentary and politics is what will create change for the future.

Keep it up, lady. <3

Kate Bullen said...

love the look tavi! i'm sure people have said this before but you would make a great stylist.

i love this so0o0o0o0o0o much! I am so sick of summer weather and the total lack of creativity in my outfits due to the heat. You're inspiring me to just screw it and start layering again!

Tavi you are fantastic. I absolutely love this entire outfit.

melina bee said...

wow, what an amazing outfit. i could never wear quite this many layers at once because I'm just too fidgety and not quite tall enough. cats rule.

YES!

this reminds me why i'm such a huge fan :)

Gorgeous outfit as always x

Lucy in the Sky said...

great outfit and everything but what I'd really like to say is that I watched that ideacity video and I LOVE your lecture! I honestly didn't know much about Sassy Magazine but the ideas you got from it are so great! You really are funny and charming outside of your blog and I think I was nodding in agreement to a lot of your statements on feminism and community. anyway, I'm glad you spoke about your ideas in a way that anyone could follow. Not in a preach-ey way but in a way that's really enlightening for anyone with an open mind. The questions that you were asked towards the end of the video kind of pissed me off but I'm glad that you were very modest and honest. ANYWAY keep up the great work!

Flowerbomb said...

Your MiuMiu's are incredible^^

Laura said...

I love the clogs!
They are so cute

http://lauraskleiderschrank.blogspot.com/

Amy said...

I watched your lecture and I am not sure if the adults in the audience really understood the progressive words you were saying. I always say - we must learn from history or it will repeat itself. I really appreciate your honest and inspirational words. Your words really resonated with me, as I am sure they do with other girls from our generation. Over the summer, I read a book called "Female Chauvinist Pigs" by Ariel Levy, which I think you might enjoy it. It was not preachy, just honest and interesting. Please continue to speak your mind and encourage other girls to do so even if the people in your immediate surroundings are confused or uncomfortable by your "different" ways and beliefs.

Booga said...

Zoiks! You did it again.

Lina said...

Tavi, I love how you're rocking 90's grunge - I wore very similar layers (slips, lace, clumpy shoes) when I was in the 90's and for many, many years. Great look xx

ólöf said...

you are really pretty:) I like this layered outfit, although I still wish the weather was too hot for layers, haha. I think however, as you mentioned, that the pink part at the bottom goes too low and would even be okay to skip.. also I am not a big clogs fan, even if they're Miu Miu, but they go with the outfit. Oh..and I LOVE your watch.

Kat said...

the watch is my favourite :)

annelie said...

Love the watch :-)

alissalima said...

here where i live is hot all the time so i'm not much into this style ..but but..i loved n i can make this wearable here, miu miu is amazing. Great accessories, i loved the feather, so "vintagily cute" lol thnx for sharin' this Tavi !! u're great ;)

Kristin said...

Miu Miu clogs: fabulous!
I loved the layered look, and i really like the pink dress, even though i can only see a little of it. I love your hair red!

La Petite Anglaise said...

I too am SO ready for fall... bring on layering, knits and coats. This look perfectly demonstrates how uniquely and imaginatively stylish you are. I love that you aren't concerned with looking 'on-trend' and as a result come out with more inspirational looks than the rest of us combined. In theory I should detest this look as I have a natural aversion to anything remotely boho and unnatural coloured hair but this is enchanting. Some slobbing for the rest of the day is most definitely deserved. X

Great outfit it kinda a cross between mori and fairy kei, plus anything with crazy cats on is a winner in my eyes! xoxo

Kirsty said...

i've missed your outfit posts and i this is a firm fave! love reading about every part of inspiration that makes up the layers. and you should watch your speech, i hate watching recordings of myself too but you did such a great job! although that guy asking you that stuff at the end made the whole thing a bit awkward, haha

Kylie said...

The other day I was thinking "I really miss Tavi's outfits... I wonder what she's wearing these days" and then I see this on my google reader! Way to read my mind. The layering in this outfit is so good. I bought this long, faded pink dress that I want to layer with other skirts... this outfit is the perfect inpiration.... or maybe I just really like the idea of a Courtney/evil cat hybrid. It makes me happy.

And you left me a lovely comment! Wow I feel lucky, haven't seen you around my blog for a while, haha! Thanks for that bb, have you seen my hair before now? You should look back in the archives a few months and check out when it was purple... good times. I'm going to do mermaid blue-ey green next I think, it's just way too much fun having rainbow hair.

ps- I don't think I mentioned it before but I think going red was such a good move, it looks amazing on you<3

<3<3<3

Hello. This is first time i write here so first of all, i wan't say i love your style. You have so much everything but still you look so perfect.

I had reason to write you (not so "rational" but..)
I watched here in Finland children program and there was girl who may play as some 'aunt' person and you came first in my mind when you had blond hair. :----)

Tavi--I just wanted to say that I've been aware of your blog ever since I saw you in a magazine (of which I can't remember the name right now..) and wondered, who is that? When I researched you and found your blog, I was absolutely blown away. And your IdeaCity video only enhanced that feeling. You've inspired me to do more than just post pretty pictures on a blog, and I truly admire you for your progressive thoughts and innovation, not to mention your impeccable taste in fashion. I look forward to what you have to post/say next. -Noelani

claudia beetlestone said...

your talk was really epic, your 14 (so am i) and you had a room filled with hundreds of people listenning to every word. and as for sassy, once im done writing this im gonna have to go find stuff to read on it because the kind of things you were talking about that were in sassy are my favorite parts of magazines today. also i love your writing, i don't even know how you do it but you can always put thoughts down on a page perfectly. yea, i just went off for a bit, my bad! and way to stick up (thats not the word i was looking for) for yourself when that guy asked you to pretty much name drop. *applauses*.

cancercowboy said...

you look like you stepped outta an updated version of the Great Gatsby. pretty (&) awesome.
your speech is pretty good too, though you're looking quite a bit uncomfortable. but heck, who wouldn't? besides, the host apparently didn't even read the cards beforehand, whoever chose that line from your blog to break the ice did not make the wisest possible choice and that clip that should introduce you to the audience was a total failure, imho. i mean "more celebrity than suburbanite"? who the hell chose that thing? did the organizers ask you how you wanted to be introduced? well, whatever, you presented your topic pretty fine. its plain to see and hear that these things are important to you and thats good. please rock on!

Lil Random said...

Haha, no, and did he even listen to what you were saying? His questions afterwards didn't suggest it... but the audience got it.

You brought a little wetness to this sentimental 32 year old hag's eyes today, using your voice and your person for what you did in that talk!

Big cheers for being vocal!

sortedrage said...

Beautiful outfit - you are really good, you know.... :D
I am happy to read that it is fidgety to wear many layers - i have never got the hang of it... ;D
I will try again and take inspiration from you - fashion has no age.

Bri said...

Layers look so good on you! It's one of those outfits that mix patterns, but with the same color palette, it doesn't look the least bit crazy (it would probably look crazy on me)! very cute and stylish!

Rhiannon Ecsedy said...

yay for your outfit posts! ive missed these.

therabbitpantry said...

Okay lots of those anti smoking campaigns out there are like, "They get kids to smoke because they use fruit flavoured cigarettes." Well I think they should add, "And also really really pretty ones."

Also, Lovely outfit. The sort of every other layer being a flowing fabric evens out the heaviness extreme layering can bring.
And the video. I ate it up.

Bri said...

wow. I just saw your IdeaCity talk and I am really inspired! You were great, and really said some powerful stuff. You have very strong views and are very intelligent:) i feel like im seein gu in a different light now!

Great. Good 4u!. Really.. amazing !

Kionon said...

Funny how used to your hair color being out of the ordinary, that when it isn't, it seems odd, and when you go back to coloring it, it's like all's right with the world again.

Jenny said...

those cigarettes are glamourising death, I know it should be a turn off but they are pretty.

I still think cigarettes can be sexy when smoked by the right person, because they were so fashionable in the past. I wonder if you share this opinion?

indeed, mori-girl/natural kei style is the best! loving it myself and feeling much better since i'm wearing it.

The talk you gave was really brilliant. I go to conferences for my profession and the presentations are rarely so flowing. It's a skill most people don't learn. I try to be as conversational as possible and I have a presentation coming up soon - I'll be trying to channel your easy way and content-rich one-way conversation. Beautiful work.

I´m sooo jealous of your pink hair and your Miu Miu´s. You look amazing!

sparklemariesparkle said...

Ok, I just have to admit, I'm a little jealous...
You look amazing, you are young, your future lies ahead of you and you can have so much fun.
I tried to tell myself that I have style, too and I know as much as you do, but it's no use, because I just don't have as much style as you do.
And you are so young! It's amazing!
Just stay yourself and keep making me jealous, so I can work on myself, too! ...and one day I can leave this boring boring city and see fashion shows myself.
I know! I'm gonna make myself a dress today, I have awesome duck print fabric lying around somewhere ;)

Love from Germany,
Marie

I hope you can read this, you are getting so many comments...

Tavi- Great talk at Ideacity! You must have been so nervous to speak in front of so many people, but you handled yourself beautifully. I don't even know you, but I feel really proud of you haha. Again, great job, and please don't shy away from public speaking in the future- you're a natural!

Hey Tavi,
I just watched your ideaCity talk and really enjoyed it! I just wrote a blogpost about girl culture and style blogging in response to what you were saying here:

http://fashademic.blogspot.com/2010/08/on-girl-culture-style-blogging-and.html

I thought you might find it interesting (or maybe not! ha) but either way, you should check out
Angela McRobbie's book Feminism and Youth Culture if you haven't read it already. It's a response to male-dominated subculture theory, examining how girls have used their exclusion from subcultures to create their own spaces for agency and self-expression. She talks about Seventeen magazine, coins the term 'bedroom culture' and is just all-round awesome:)
