i won't grow up

Rachel Antonoff can do the "cute" thing like no other, and her Spring 2011 collection was inspired by Peter Pan, specifically the notion of not growing up. It was perfect slumber party dreamvibes and made me really just want to crawl into one of the forts and fall asleep reading a Babysitters Club book while wearing a bow-printed jumper.

This model had the best job.

The shoes were SO good! Variations of penny loafers and saddle shoes for when I take over student council and try to make Penny Loafer and Saddle Shoe Day some kind of school holiday. Everything would look so pretty and we wouldn't have to do gym.

Crazy good Meghan Farrell jewelry!

And see, I feel like all of these clothes could easily be too cute, but the pastel thing knows when to shut off so that a dress like the one on the right above isn't too flouncy or Lolita-esque.

I stayed talking with Rachel about Hayley Mills and the political implications of Peter Pan until the slumber party had to come to an end. Is there anything more depressing than watching Wendy's house demolish in a few minutes' time? My dad and I headed out, and I bitterly noted about the place we stopped in for lunch that they were not offering s'mores.

So, so great...and this reminded me of how badly I want a ouija board.

Erin said...

I love the shoes, especially in the third picture. They remind me of the saddle shoes I had when I was a kid.

Cassandra Watsham said...

Just lovely. Peter Pan has always been a story close to my heart, and a great inspiration for such carefree fashion. What a great atmosphere!

matthew roland said...

Such wonderful shoes. Especially the pair with that lovely little pattern.

Mika said...

I have a complete urge to go fly off into the night in a semi-sheer and super-short cream nighty/scandalous day dress right now.
And penny loafers, of course, and messy hair...

heeyy

omgcutestuff xD i love the shoes -- there SHOULD be a holiday for them *sigh*....

and the dresses are mature, yet still peter pan. Preeetttyyy sure you could wear them down the street!

I love on the sheet one model is writing on -- 'DON'T feed the models!' -- haha, saying something?

There's a saying in my dad's family (we're all very immature and loads of fun xD) 'We suffer from peter pan syndrome'.

PS any update on the 'for this age and era' sassy?

Ali's Adventures said...

PPS mika has it right!

lajolielavie said...

I love the white dress and the last dress.
sounds like a fun party. Boo for no s'mores.

The shoes with little bows at the front are my favourite - such a cute twist on the traditional saddle. Lovely pics.

Oh I love all of these photos. The outfits are lovely, but the whole set up is the best. I love that notion of everlasting childhood.

i love the frilly socks, v. cute. i have a pair from target (haha), pronounced tar-jai, of course!

i really need to get me a ouiji bord, pretty sure my house is haunted! i am very jealous of all the things you get to do! You get to hang out in a sheet fort all day (with beautiful spring clothes) as a job!

Miss Diazepam said...

I ADORED the Babysitters Club books U.U Would have read them all if they weren't so damn many and didn't have too many other things to read already. Plus in Italy they came with NAIL ART DECALS!! Hysterical.

Editorial perfeito, estou te sehuindo no twitter também! abraço

agent 0017 said...

love love love ;)
brings back so many memories of clubhouses, babysitter club books(!!) and saddle shoes

kelsea said...

great collection, definitely makes me nostalgic though :(

Cara said...

Haha funny how it says "NO feeding the models" on the sheet.

The Visual Jerbil said...

i think i like the set up and the "show" more than the collection, but still, sooo much fun, THIS is what fashion should be.

Dainty Librarian Vintage said...

Everything about this is fantastic!

love the shoes!! LOVE

fashionslap.net said...

I guess they are going for the "junior" demographic. Where as the photoshoot is original and charming. It also really projects itself to a certain type of girl. Which, is probably why I'm a little creeped out by it. Over all though I must say I love how MAC get's free press like no other. No wonder there brand is so well known they end up in shoots for everything including this one.

Kate said...

Love the "no feeding the models" sign!!

I really like the school girl air :) reminds me of summer, too.

khdz said...

gah. Lolita. creepy book.
after reading the book, that word seems incongruous when assigned to anything cutesy.

but more importantly, where can I get those saddle shoes?

Marina said...

great inspiration!!!

The shoes are perfectly lovely. Sadly, I do have to admit that I wouldn't buy them because I had a pair of Sam Edleman shoes in grey that are much like them. I'm glad that you brought up the Lolita-esque point. It does happen to look like a Pirate Lolita outfit to me.

emilysmucker said...

Oh my bunnyslippers I'm totally going to go buy some saddle shoes and wear them with little lacy socks. Or at least I'll keep my thrift store eyes open.

Chloé said...

Beautiful. Everything. Including the school holiday.

Am I the only person who sees a distinction between grown ups and adults? Grownups being bad and adults being good?

Morgan said...

I love the idea for the Peter Pan theme. That was my favorite fairy tale growing up :) I also love that the world is rediscovering the awesomeness of saddle shoes

Flow Disruption said...

Tavi, don't ever "grow up". I tried doing that once and it was the biggest waste of life thus far. Children are the ones with endless imaginations. It takes a while to regain that creativity once you've kept it dormant for a while. Keep it up. You're an inspiration. :)

Andrea said...

It would be cool if that kind of house existed in every city so you can go there every time you got mad and bored by the world of "grown-ups":)

Growing up is not fun, believe me - I loved "The Baby-sitters Club", great books they were.
Why do you not write about Harry Potter inspired fashion; it is just as intriguing as Peter Pan.

cancercowboy said...

nice mood, but almost a bit too mild for my personal taste. and i don't think its mainly the shoes that create this "lil girl"-feeling but rather the socks (and the obvious lack of, ehm, curves on the part of the models) and the conspicuous 50s borrowing in general.
all in all i like it; its a trig facet of our focus on youth.

Rebecca de Havas said...

Wow beautiful!very inspiring and very jealous you got to see it ;)

I wish more teenagers in my area would be inspired and create events like this that would last in your memories, than be going out all the time, spending all their money to get drunk at the typical nightclub and not remember anything.Which is ok once in a while of course but we could do better!

luckily I've found some lovely people who do think the same way..I think maybe a slumber party in my house is in order!thanks for sharing your experience!

Casie Jean said...

Peter Pan is my favorite. An old man I work with used to call me Wendy by mistake, and it always made me secretly happy. this lookbook is amazing, I adore everything about it x.x.x

I really adore some of the outfits but i think they can use some simple garnet earrings like these:

How do you know that the pastel tones slow down the "Lolita feel"? Is it common knowledge? Am I ignorant for not making the association immediately?
