DID YOU ACTUALLY DYE YOUR HAIR??

Today was angsty floating witch mermaid, with bffs 4ever 4lyfe Drew Barrymore at the 1995 VMAs and Courtney Love in Versace at the Batman & Robin premiere in 1997 in mind. The photo on the right is so you know why I don't smile in most of these photos. For your sake, really! I don't want anyone to have nightmares of baby teeth grannies.

Thrifted shirt and yellow slip, and the blue skirt was sent to me from American Apparel. On the plus side it's a great blue and creates the illusion of floating, on the negative, I am tiny for my age and STILL it's too tight around the waist and too long.

Mom's thrifted boots.

Manic Panic wig and Goody barrettes. The wig was well-received at school, often believed to be my real hair ("Oh, thank God it's a wig, for a sec I thought you had actually dyed your hair blue! That would be a bit too far!!") and apparently another girl wore a blue one today and everyone thought we planned it. I don't know who she is and I didn't see her but now I need to find my wig twin.

It was the first hair dying in my grade ever. I felt like a hero

I think that if anyone could dye their hair blue, it would be you!

Isabel said...

This is clearly the most genius outfit + wig combo EVER. I love that you wore it to school. I would've worshiped any high school girl brave enough to do that. :)

tvo said...

I'm in my last semester of college, and seriously, your violet colored hair from a few months ago inspired me to dye mine purple before I start working.

You rock!

yuliahurts said...

i love this colour!u look very pretty with it

whereareyoufromoriginally? said...

You look great. The skirt, the hair, the blues--I love it.

zoomslow said...

Oh please, Tavi Gevinson! You have a really lovely smile :-)) And the photo on the right is just another stellar example - seriously!!!

Eda said...

the skirt is really fit on your wig! lovely.

Claire L. Baldwin said...

Beautiful!
I love Barrymore and Love, their bleached hair is 90's-fabulous.
I was in Polly Sue's today and thought of you!

eat me said...

Why are you not my friend in real life?! JEEEEZUZ!
And that wig is making me hungry for cake.

Mouthwash said...

LOL!! Hungry for CAKE?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that response. It makes so much sense.

Tavi for president. Seriously. Blue hair and all.

I wish I could have that wig. I've always wanted to see what I would look like with blue hair...it looks fabulous on you, by the way :)

fashionslap.net said...

The wig looks a little off on you. Not because of the color, but the style. I think it would be cute as a pixie cut, but I must say I love that you did that at school and your school let you. We had a strict no color hair policy at our school : / that's the way the cookie crumbles I guess.

Aurora said...

i really like the color of your wig, it's very flattering with your skin tone!

i.c. blogspot said...

you look like a young Kirsten Dusnt on the left photo :) loving the blue... maybe time to dye your hair that colour again?

Lovers, Saints & Sailors said...

Awww, I love old Drew.

Kacrates said...

Those cheap $1.29 goodyy clips and pins are the best arent they!?

Afra Klinkenberg said...

Have you ever seen the Russian movie Русалочка ?
It's an old version of The Little Mermaid. Way more beautiful and tragic. (And blue hair!)
You really should see it. : )

How big is your school? I'm impressed that two blue-wigged people wouldn't come across each other. I went to a tiny high school. I probably saw everyone there every day!

Davidikus said...

I quite like the blue wig actually.

The skirt goes well with the wig though!

I like your look. Cool color of a wig, but i wouldn't wear it to school.

And the wig is just... so perfect and mermaid-y.
So great.

Miss Tami Lee said...

Great idea layering a long sheer skirt over a shorter one. I just might steal that.. :)

Une tenue un peu étrange, mais qui a un certain charme, jsui vraiment fan de tes cheveux bleu ;) !!!

Please Don't Eat With Your Mouth Open said...

Tavi, I envy your school life. If someone had turned up to school sporting a blue barnet round my bit of London, there'd be what we commonly referred to back then as "beats".

Super cool.

Ale said...

that wig is very mermaidy!! Great outfit :)

cancercowboy said...

heck, do you look gorgeous or what!? though i'd still prefer your natural hair.
and don't be too hard on your smile. it looks totally relaxed and sociable [for a shark] ;)
plus, this particular example made me smile ^____^

My Stylish Muse said...

I think that you suit the blue wig! Very cute and fun!

Tavi said...

Thanks guys!

WendyB-Huge, over 3200 students I believe!

Richard Kilroy-UGH, such a good photo. I love Courtney's mermaid phase and Gwen's colored hair one.

Afra Klinkenberg-I've been meaning to see that for a while, it looks so good.

The Clothes Press said...

Hi Tavi- absolutely LOVE the wig! And the mermaid vibes... Too Cool For School. :) And nice kind of combination of those two outfits into one... Hope you find your wig twin.. If only I were she... :)

Chocolatier said...

Aw, I like your smile. (I'm sure other people have said this, but like I'm going to go and read every single one of the 72 comments. Realllly fun.) Anyway, I said on the post where you first wore it but I LOVE the blue wig, and you should totally dye your hair blue again, but like this blue, and this exact style too. Just bring in the wig and be like, "I want this to be my hair." Or sew it onto your skull. Whavever you please. But you look like a blue version of the Lazytown girl.

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

I've been wanting to dye my hair blue for 5 years now, but my mum won't allow it...Probably because the bleaching would ruin my hair! XD I've been trying to convince her for a year now to at least allow me a wig! XD

Ben said...

I wore a blue wig to school once buy it was shorter like when your hair acualy was blue, and people thougt I dyed it and how ironic somone eles wore a blue wig the same day! Maybe it was you again but they thought it was someone else.

HOW UR DAD FEELS ABOUT UR WIG?

H.M.R. said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble squeezing into American Apparel skirts. It's like they make those things for hipless drag queens. Totally cute wig.

La Petite Marmoset said...

That wig is such a cool blue color, reminds me of my katy perry halloween costume!

Bailey Faye said...

Methinks we should definately team up and make jewelry for tiny people. I'm taller than average but I'm skinny with ttiiiinnyy arms/fingers/wrists (like my ring size is a 4.5 and my wrist isn't even 6" around)..and I'm 18. Lol..baby hands :]

But anyway I love your quirkiness! I remember last year my English teacher once wore a Whoville-esque blue wig and people thought it was her real hair ;D

Dazed and Confused said...

You're that sister I've always wanted .... :(
Pobre... Lol
I really dig this post

Ben said...

I know you have a list of people you have made jelouse somwhere in your room tavi, and you should add me. I wish I owned all the clothes you have especially the Miu mius. You make me so jeloyuse it could almost be a sin(almost). I love your outfits.

There's a better picture of her in the latest Marie Claire.. which I was reading when I found the picture and was reminded of you.

I love your inspirtaions and how you translate what inspires you.

Amelie said...

If I could wear a different colored wig everyday, I would. Unfortunately if I were to dye my hair the blue of your wig, it would fade very, very quickly. I once dyed my hair bright red, and it faded in about two weeks. It also left what looked like blood wounds on my scalp.

Anni said...

Like you very much,dear Tavi!Mother's boots are very cool!

flashingfashionx said...

The contrast of your neon colour hair and your solid black top almost makes you look ghosted like. Very clever, great post!

Wow! It´s really real? I saw yesterday TRON The Legay, maybe you must be the next ISOs... not Olivia Wilde...Great hair!

Vicky said...

I love mid 90's Drew, the blue hair rocks!!! Lovely colour I think I would like a blue wig for special occssions, I fear it would be wasted here in Kent!

I want to go to a school where wearing blue wigs is the norm <3.

Can't believe someone wore a blue wig, like if it was the most common think ever! haha
I love the skirt, but maybe it's too long. I've always thought this skirts are for giants!
Love the outfit:)

Alli The Totally Wicked Novelist said...

Your smile is great! Also, I had the thought that for our (our meaning the collective viewers of style rookie) late winter celebrations present, you could dye your hair blue! Then go find your wig twin. :)

Joey Becerra said...

when I was younger it was always my dream to style Courtney Love because she's such a beautiful girl who's just a little troubled....definitely love the blue wig...you should make it permanent!

Love the blue! Looks great on you!

teo almeida said...

Even my mom, which is definitly conservative about lots of matters, followed me on a very long 'WOW' when we saw this look. Beautiful blue! This skirt is so... *-*
If I was a woman, I'd be using a diffrent wig for each day, or each 'social meeting', cause, in my mind, it sounds like fun. And fashion is all about fun, right? At least, for me.

Engreida said...

Barrymore projects the best free spirit ever.

Chloé said...

I love the idea of wigs. More power to you if you wear one! There is someone at school who sometimes wears bright wigs and everyone thinks it's creepy.
However, I'm sure she finds jeggings creepy, as I do.

IT WOULD B EVEN KOOLER TO HAVE A CARTOONISH COLORFUL HAIRSTYLE LIKE IN THE VIDEO KATE FOR BALMAIN....ONE DAY!!! ))))
