sleepy and hollow


Soft florals, wavy hair, 70's suburbia, and sibling feuds.
Marcia Brady, Blythe, 1969, old Missoni, Chloe Sevigny.

seventies colors are so comforting in their muteness.

Oh, I love that Missoni ad. Although, if I look at it for too long, the size and color of her lips starts to freak me out a little bit. Like right now, I'm typing this and glancing into her eyes every once in awhile, and I feel a little creeped out.

Vicky said...

Love all the muted colours x

Cory said...

Blythe dolls creep me out but some people actually form like a subculture around them and make custom clothes which is pretty cool I guess but I'd rather make clothes for myself.

SheikChan said...

I'm not into florals much or long wavy hair. ;___; I'm just definitely not a 70s person. I barely own like one pair of flared jeans...I've sewed all of the rest straight. >.>;

WendyB said...

Look at Marcia's chunky square heels. How great are those?

Cute post! I watched the Brady Bunch reruns every day after school, and I always wanted Marcia and Jan's outfits. (But not Carol's)

katherine rose said...

dear 14 year old Tavi,

I am writing to you, to thank you. for being your lovely eccentric self. I am sure you feel, that is some small ways, you have sold parts of you soul to this thing we call fashion. And have barely figured anything out about life.
But, in my eyes, you are victorious in being what we all secretly dream of, being truly & utterly ourselves.
You are a pioneer and a heroine to big 22 year old girls, like myself, who are just beginning to figure all these silly things out, unlike your precocious 14 year old self.

I appaluded your noble do goodings in my 100th post blog reflection today. www.thatwhichwecalllife.blogspot.com
but wanted to thank you publicly.

Forge on!

Sincerely, 22 year old Katherine

Mina Jade said...

That doll is eerie! So is the third photo with the hollow eyed child.
I know the fourth photo though. This girl was a named teen model when I was a teen as well (sighs). At least she has an uncanny emblance with that model.
