candy store cat lady

Lady Miss Kier's ring game channeled through blue plastic thrifted belt and Goody daisy hairclips, the Edward Scissorhands (yes, this is a constant reference for me) neighborhood channeled through the hand-me-down skirt, Twiggy & clones sweater game channeled through sweater dress from PollySue's Vintage, and librarian cat channeled through purse I got as a gift and I Love This Kitty pin from artenergyalchemy on Etsy.

The shoes are a combination of all, and were sent to me by Kron by KronKron. By KronKron by KronKronKron. Kron.

Pros: Bows! RUFFLED SUEDE! All fun and girly but not vomitly so, thanks to the color palette. Surprisingly walkable, and they're even too big for me.
Cons: I'd prefer a platform whose color doesn't feel so random in relation to the others.

Unfortunately I had to opt for more walkable shoes when I wore this outfit to my friend's play last night, because LOOKY:

It's so pretty! Sure, the walking-to-school-at-7:30-A.M. version of me might beg to differ, and oh, you know, throw her backpack down in a fit of rage every few steps or so, but look at how it glimmers from just the right angles!

I'm way too into artenergyalchemy, which is where I got this little glitter cat. Good thing my ears aren't pierced or it'd be an easy way to go broke. Though maybe I could self-pierce them with the Jack Nicholson Shining ones, and blood would gush out of my ears due to my insanitary job, but it would look cool because then it would just drip off the sides of the tiny axe charms as though it had just finished off the family!

What? Something about blood and murders? That wasn't me! Divert your attention and stop getting suspicious! Look, a cat! I hear you like those on the Internet!

twiggy clones and jack nicholson earrings are so creepy.

Marshmellow said...

I was wondering when those who have sent in samples/ submissions/ applications for your magazine can expect to hear back? You probably don't have time to answer every comment, but thank you in advance!

Al said...

Love the shoeeeeeeesss!!!

I want them!
Weren't they big? Send them to me!!
And the skirt!!!

Ahhh...

And I don't know why but cats+that technicolor 60s-70s style are just perfect together

(By the way, looking at you in this outfit I don't think that the bang is too short. It suits you.)

Being a gay man, you can only imagine what my response to all those cats is!! Too many pussy cats if you ask me! Twiggy is always great, but maybe I'm allergic to cat litter?I should go get tested.www.fashionbaggage.com

Hannah said...

People stop asking for her clothes, it makes you seem desperate. But anyway, I'm glad to see you ditch the milkmaid do. It was super awesome, but gotta mix it up, you know? Still loving the outfit, loving the shoes-loving the reaction that wearing two pairs of glasses at once gets from 8th graders. Have you tried it?

Suzannah said...

Oh My Shoes!

Anna said...

i dig that sweater. mucho.
stay awesome, Tavi.

Lightning Heart said...

cuteeeeee :))) xxx

Chloe said...

I love this! I love this! I love this! Did I mention that I love this? Those shoes are like, the best thing that ever happened to me. Actually that statement is either untrue or very sad. And I didn't even notice the bangs, though now that I look at them again it's kind of funny. But not bad, it works. Now I need to stop because I sound like a four year old on a sugar high.

i'am.altaModa said...

PS the entire look together is very Balenciaga :)

Natassia Lea said...

Sophia said...

What a great sense of humor this girl has!
Murder, and throwing things!
Golly.
Plus... the cookie cutter houses with only the colours to differentiate them is so creepy, oh! and the cars to match!
And the woman feeding the goat, to boot!
Its a big ol' salmagundi of things.

Swish said...

I'm so glad you know who Lady Kier is, Dee-light was such a fun band in the 90s.
Tavi, you always have such a developed and intuitive sense of style :)

Simuša said...

nice outfit and bag! :)

The Visual Jerbil said...

very prrrrr-worthy.

Saumer said...

If you haven't heard it already, you should listen to the song "Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds. The Edward Scissorhands picture reminded me of it.

Jenni said...

Brilliant! Love the shoes. Cats in glasses make great style inspiration.

Flow Disruption said...

Tavi, I haven't been following too long, but this is definitely my favourite outfit thus far! The colours are perfect and the sweater is just freakin' awesome. I wish we had gone to high school together or something, I can relate to you in many ways. ;)

Ratu Annisaa said...

I like that shoes, lovely and I agree that it's not vomitly like any other girly shoes.

And the Edward Scissorhands clip is cool, I like Edward Scissorhands!

Hello Tavi!
I'm from Brazil, and follow your blog for a long time and I love your unique style and eccentric to be, I think your blog a modern fashion magazine, and the best is not paid to see!
I would ask an editorial about his style of Tim Burton! I think it would matter a great!
Big hugs from BRAZIL and especially mine!

Tavi Dear,

a BIG hello from BRASIL!!

Yes, I am from the same country of Gisele Bündchen, BUT not so tall or pretty like her!

I loved your Post!!
Amazing shoes, I must say.

Stay in the Peace of God!!
You and All Your Readers!!

P.S. I make you a challenge: why don't you make a Post about CARMEN MIRANDA'S fashion? The brazilian actress who conquered Hollywood in the 40's, liked to dress with so many colors just like you, Tavi!

IF you think I had a good idea for a Post in your Blog, Please, you could dedicate it for me: "~Ana Paula~A Católica": it will be a BIG present for me in this Christmas!! God Bless You!! God Bless Your Readers and Your Wonderful and Original Work!!

Whoa. Sweet beans. If Brog and Grag from Cro-Mag Rally ate a pack of sweets ... these shoes would be the result.

kristyfruition said...

The shoes look like they could be from hansel and gretel and they're definitely or a pretty narrow demographic but I don't think they're are any cons. They're so ridiculous and frivolous the random colors and bows and straps just make sense.

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!

manna - Justification? It's just a fun way to credit the clothes and inspiration at the same time, and people seem to enjoy seeing the process.

Those asking about submissions...I put in the original post a note that you should all hear back by January 1st (a STRETCH, I know, but we got about 2750 submissions) but I should add a note in the sidebar, thanks for reminding me.

Cats are amazing! I love any kind of felines, and I will adore anything in connection with them. CATS RULE THIS WORLD.

Roz said...

Out of the inspiration photos, the Twiggy one is definitely my favourite. I have a big album of all my favourite photos found on the internet, and that one has just been added to it!
Lovely outfit - I like the whimsical details. And I first heard about Kron shoes when I saw a shoot on Saga Sig's (a british photographer) blog, that she'd done for the company. They're very eyecatching, and weirdly desirable..
We still have lots of snow in the UK here too, but I can't wear heels for the time being anyway, so foot-wear wise it doesn't affect me. It's great for photos though!

melina bee said...

so delightful! I love this outfit, I need bright colors/pastels in abundance this time of year (super gray in oregon). the cat purse reminds me of these crazy socks I used to have in the 5th grade that had photorealistic cats "collaged" all over it.
curious what you do for outerwear.

manna said...

well, its only when you point out the specifics- "..picture of ___ channeled through ___..." that it seems like some mathematical formula and it kind of irks me because it seems a bit contrived.

Those shoes are so adorable! They look like they belong in a Tim Burton movie. Love!!

"Look A Cat" Haha the number one way to get people to ignore anything else that my attract them...wow you know the internet. Haha love it. Those shoes are so fantastically whimsical you can't help, but smile. Oh PS Snow ahhh it reminds me of when I was in High School and had to walk to school. Oh Michigan sometimes I miss you, but not so much. I do remember how hard it is to walk in the snow at times.

Just one question: this shirt is the Brazilian soccer team? They are the colors of that country ... hahahaha.
There's more: these shoes seem to be genuinely part of the fantasy of a samba school. Part of the fantasy of Mickey Mouse.
Okay, I admit: it has to taste everything ... what?

Oho! I got this very peculiar feeling when looking at your groovy shoes and just realized they remind me of this tragic childrens book i cannot remember the name or storyline of, only a few pictures and the feeling it gave me, but i figure it must be amazing as it obviously made a huge impression on me... the sharpish shape of the bows... i like them very much by the way.
