i had at least 70 more people at my funeral

Maybe as a result of how much Internet I took in during the summer, and then the speed and intensity of some fashion-related traveling at the beginning of the fall, I have felt little desire to delve into Fashion On The Internet in recent weeks. Plus, school is a little crazy, and I am figuring out how to manage an extra curricular schedule that is more Max Fischer than the Daria kind that I'm accustomed to. I've been trying to be creative more offline, and do other kinds of writing, and work on my zine, and it's making me really happy. My policy on being my own boss for this blog is that I don't post if I don't feel like it. It feels contrived and boring and chore-like, and my other policy is that I'll stop once this feels like a chore. So posts are about to get rather spotty. I plan to catch up on Fashion Week shows that I missed once I feel more in the ~zone~.

Inspiration compilation, yes?
Photo sources at links: bedroom, Winnie Cooper, Kids, Moz shrine, gun, Veronica Sawyer, Rosemary, Kent Rogowski flower puzzle.

Any more cultural references in this post and it'd be a Haruki Murakami novel! OH WAIT

THAT ROOM.
I NEED THAT ROOM.

If I could afford to sell off my furniture and buy nicer ones, that would be pretty high on my list of things to do. Maybe once I get my own house.

I feel guilty that I'm not working on my Jackson Pollock puzzle now.

Miss Tami Lee said...

I feel ya. I think people appreciate thought out infrequent posts more than Walmartesque quantity over quality blogs.

Super creepy inspo vibe btw.

Amanda said...

Oh god! KIDS was the most traumatizing movie I've ever seen. (I'm a wuss. Also I don't see many movies.)

eat me said...

Lovely!
Yeah, the blog-oh-world has been feeling a bit, bleh.

those rules you have set for yourself as a boss of your own blog are ones i think i need to follow as well.
thanks for your wisdom.

Kiki said...

love the pic of "Super-Coop." i miss The Wonder Years. such a stellar show. she just had a baby, too. Heathers is one of my fave films. after all these years, i still use the term "damage." take care.

Steve said...

Did you just make a Rushmore reference and then zing Murakami?

I also noticed there was a big bold "not facebook" non-link. Personally I would not say anything and have people search endlessly for you on facebook before realizing, "Wait.. maybe she doesn't have one! Impossible! Let me search for another two hours!"

Tish said...

seriously...i mean no disrespect when i ask what in the hell did your parents read to you as a kid? i've never read anything from someone your age like this?

you're such an old soul. i find myself twitching when i realize i want to bff such a youngin.

DMcSacana said...

I can't imagine just how cool the visuals on your site will be when you start watching Fellini and Antonioni (if you're not already).

Nice "Heathers" reference in the title. One of the most under-appreciated movies of all time

dani d. said...

i like, i like, i like a lot. i especially like the framing of it all with the bedroom photo even if that is a mistake... it's a happy one.

Engreida said...

That bedroom needs some shoes hanging on the wall :)

Emilie ! said...

awesome inspiration post! Totally love the creepy-sweet vibes.
I agree with you about not blogging unless youre in the 'zone'. I haven't blogged for a week (ish) just beause I know if I force myself to I'll generate some kind of pointless garbage!

teencreeps said...

Dude, Kids is actually the most uncomfortable film I've ever seen. Especially when my mom was standing right behind me while I was watching it.

Rafael Franco said...

Hello, Tavi. How are you?

I love Rosemary's Baby, is one of my favourites movies ever!

I also like the amazing puzzle, It's really inspiring.

Tavi said...

Steve -- there are a number of fake facebooks under my name who have messaged designers and gotten free clothes from them. I want it to come straight from my actual blog that they're fake.

pigeonpillow -- Still thinkin about it!

Mini Sartorialist -- I'm really sorry, working on that.

teencreeps -- SERIOUSLY

chelseybell -- Yes I am!

Natalie -- Ugh, one of my favorite all time music videos. I want to keep this post to just images, but I love it (I almost used a Kim G picture, actually!)

Tish -- Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss, Norwegian books, Arthur, Alexander, pretty usual kids books I suppose...

Emily said...

Your style of writing is amazing. I can't explain it, but it just draws me into reading.

Alexandra said...

I love the jigsaw puzzle combo.. Its really beautiful to me for some reason. It reminds me of the movie that Shirly Temple did, "Heidi."

Visit my blog, tell me what you think.. I need suggestions! Please leave comments everyone :)

uselessstuffineed said...

When I saw the photo of winnie cooper, I was like 'wait, could it be...'. Not excited for your lack of posts to come, but wanted to say ive loved your blog for a while now but never commented.

Steve said...

Woah, I didn't even think about that! I'm sorry to hear it!

I'm Heather. said...

When I was 14 I felt total kinship with Winnie Cooper. When I was 20 (the year that Kids came out. Hi, I'm old), I took one photo of Chloe Sevigny and one photo of Mia Farrow circa Rosemary's Baby to my hairdresser and begged her to make it happen (which she did, sort of). Annddd, my name is Heather and I was obsessed with Heathers. THIS POST TOTALLY SPOKE TO ME. Ahem, clearly.
