acid trip field trip

Bjork in i-D, Richard Misrach, Washing Machine, Cassandra Laing, and this rad creepy tumblr girl.

Today I tried to dress like a field trip to the planetarium, and my yearbook smile above is supposed to align with the back-to-school nature of the outfit. It's ironic that once we're finally out of school I dress like I kinda wanna be back in. (Secret: I do. I like high school. I dunno.)


Skirt sent to me by Risto Bimbiloski and migh-T longsleeve. Donuts and outer space! What more could you want?

Goody barrettes, gross hair courtesy of lazy winter break grooming.
Bracelets from childhood/friends, girl scout patch from troopmoore on ebay.

You can't really see my nail polish in the picture but I tried to layer this neon Manic Panic that I got at Opening Ceremony and Deborah Lippman's "Across the Universe" which she gave me at Barney's Fashion's Night Out. It ended up looking a little like vomit. Cool vomit, though.

Wow tavi love the acid look really reminds me of electric things and wicked glitter. I liked the details on the dress you wore and I love those girl scout patches (totally to-die-for). Love Risto and you.

Ciao,
SAL

This is definitely one of my favourite outfits out of your recent ones, in fact maybe one of my favourite out of all of your outfits (that's probably not the best english but this is just a blog comment so I'll excuse myself)

Cosmic vibes as you would say!

I wish I could say I enjoy high school too but unfortunately some people take pleasure in making it a living hell for me :/

Random question but have you ever seen 'Pulp Fiction'? I just finished watching it and was ~blown away~

Sorry for the essay

Nice g-scouts patch! Imma need to find my old ones...not that I have too many...School picture day smile! I love it! I really like your whole planetarium field trip theme, it reminds me of a South Park episode where they went to the planetarium...except they were fourth graders and they were wearing jeans and sweatshirts. Anyway, nice outfit, (I like school too, shhhh, dont tell)

Ashley said...

zoomslow said...

Donuts and outer space! - It's all I need. But if you wanted to give me those bracelets, I probably wouldn't say no.

Funny, your year book smile is incredibly similar to my old 'getting test back from teacher' face!

Michelle said...

Aw, the girl scout patch made me really nostalgic for 1995 and thin mints.

You, my lovely Tavi, could be the reincarnation of Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus, a.k.a. the COOLEST TEACHER EVER.

Lakyn Carlton said...

You inspired me, with a previous post, to buy some Girl Scout patches to ironically add to my clothing and I must have bought roughly 32 trillion off eBay.

That said, I love that Manic Panic nail polish. And this outfit. Awesome as usual. I'm thinking it's about time to go from "style rookie" to "style apprentice."

Paolina of Calur Villade said...

AMAZING SKIRT

kater said...

I wish I had had the nerve to do things like dye my hair so very space-mermaid-green before I had to do things like graduate school and jobs.

That said, I liked high school too. I mean, some of it was stupid, but most of the time I was happy as a clam.

Tara Violet said...

head-over-heels in love with this outfit! love the space vibes
I've been so into the universe lately, obsessed with Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking and black holes and moon dust and all of that

space and donuts! too cute. and I adore that girl scout patch. you're making me want to scavenge for some on ebay or something.

your yearbook smile is perfect. it reminds me of the intro to Freaks and Geeks especially Bill Haverchuck's somewhat off but extremely charming yearbook smile

I also really want your skirt. it's impeccable and elegant and psychedelic

Wow, I just discovered this blog via Teen Vogue. In the magazine they briefly mentioned you, and I was intrigued, so I googled and was amazed! I love this!

I must say, you totally remind me of myself (not trying to be creepy). At the same age, I started a blog about a video game I love, and today I'm one of the top bloggers for that game, and a podcaster too!

By the way, I have that lizard watch!

Awesome clothes. I love your skirt, and the theme. Jealous.

Your outfit reminds me of Ms Frizzle from The Magic SchoolBus!! Awww thanks for taking me back. I don't know if you're familiar with it, being that i'm thirty, haha...but you seem to like a lot of the same stuff I did when i was teenaged, so maybe. Anyways, I design a sweater line, and count you in my inspirations. So thanks for having the time that I dont have to put such a dope blog together!
