February 8, 2011

and so it begins.

Somehow, it is already time for the Fall 2011 season so this is a scheduled post as I head to NY. I haven't even looked at some Spring shows! And Pre-Fall! And Couture! There's still a lot of stuff from last season I want to write about! And so, to test the timelessness of these clothes (see how I make myself seem less lazy by making this seem like a clever conceptual endeavor?), I will continue to write about Spring while Fall is going on. Fashion needs to take a note from Frankie and just relax for like, TWO SECONDS.

Meanwhile, this is what I wore to the Hideout thing last week. It was fun! Really fun! At least, as far as I can remember, though it's entirely possible I said some really stupid stuff. Thanks to the kind folks who came and said hi and stroke up conversations about Suze Rotolo and thrifting!

I wanted to be red and graphic-y? This is more a "character" outfit than an interesting printsy layery one. I've been doing more of that kind of dressing lately. Vintage Betsey Johnson dress, Soft cardigan, backpack from when I was little. The girl scout patch is from eBay.

Very nice look Tavi, and it looks like from Miu Miu's spring 2011 show like satin dresses. You should see Chanel Haute spring 2011 it reminds me on you a lot. You would look nice in some of them just like you like ghostly....

Have a nice day

Michelle of The Feather Den said...

Scheduled posts are so handy, aren't they? You must be having an incredible time - uh, doing so much homework on that plane!
Adorable outfit as usual, Tavi. Seriously, your fashion sense just brightens up any day.

Eda said...

WOW. This is so cool.
The girl scout patch is so cute and lovely~
I think eBay is good for searching vintage things. isn't it? :)

I wanted to come to the Hideout so bad, but I am two months too young! Glad you enjoyed your time though.

I love the dress and the whole primary colours thang going on - also that backpack is amazing.

Melissa said...

You were charming, Tavi! It was cool to see you and meet you. The interview was fun and you did a good job! Here is a photo I took too: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5017/5417048225_f202d62eab_z.jpg

that backpack is very cool! just saw you in Fashion Televison. You're so inspiring. Not my style. But still so cool and brave. Thanks for changing everything.

Kaysens nye klæder said...

Well, just take it easy.. I do really like your cardigan!
But I was thinking about something do you sew? I mean "big" things, dresses and stuff like that? :)

Fucking cute. As in purposely-being-cute-so-it-looks-cool, not "oh cute shirt gal-pal". Yay backpacks are making a comeback! I like that inter-word rhyming there. Backpack comeback. It will be a new term. Anyway, awesome. Have fun at the shows!!!

i do sometimes feel some outfits invoke characters of mine. while some might consider it being someone you're not, i think of it more as exploring a different facet of myself. cool post, yo!

Dagmarette Yen said...

Oh I know! Every season I feel like there is so much to talk about, so many patterns, designs, and colors that needed to be explored further but then another fashion week comes through making everything else irrelevant!

Fingers crossed for some delightful things for Fall!

I really like the outfit, and little patches. I feel like it's so hard to keep up with all the shows, and you can so many hours looking at all the lines. But, they are all so beautiful in their own way.

OMG Luv the red! So very awesome and bold. And the girl scout patches are a nice touch. Hope you had a fun plane ride. Well...as fun as plane rides can be.

TAVI. that betsey johnson vintage is absolutely beautiful amazing. you are so incredibly lucky to have it.

Lindsey said...

So exciting! But it is crazy how fast fashion goes. And think, the designers have to create things even more in advance. Crazy.

Yaaaaayyyy. The flower dress makes me so happy. You look like you could be the real life version of a cartoon character like Pepper Ann, or Ginger!

Mina Jade said...

As far as I know, this will be the season when healthy looking models will return... Now I hope it is just a promise again - I did suffer a lot to become zero size and it does fit to my personality. I would not change my body for the hottest curvy, shapely body in the world.

Brie Gershwin said...

i like your reference to Frankie.funny because its true..Fashion never stops its always something new. Anyways thats what makes fashion soo interesting and involving...
---luvv your blog, Briee XD

SheikChan said...

Too cute. I'd throw a wig on with that outfit. Hehe.

Then again, I'm always pushing wigs on people... I love fashion but my mind is always down the costume isle..

the time goes so fast. 2010 ends before few weeks and now the fall season starts..
i did never thought about fall or pre-fall or couture(though my blog is "style couture..").
i think all the bloggers have lots and lots of stuffs to write about. but the shortage of time blocked us! :(
anyways, you would be so happy! going to the shows! i wish you to enjoy the days at there and watch all the shows carefully! because you have to tell us the great time at there and great shows you've seen..^^

therefore please, please look closely at all the things out there with your pretty glasses! :D
and make all the people surprised who looks at your super style! :D

Wow! Already?! Time in the fashion world just flies by!
Your like the only person who could pull off that kinda outfit, and you do it amazingly!
I'd just look stupid. :)

Flow Disruption said...

I love it! It's simple, but so distinct. :)

You remind me of a young Kathleen Hanna, in the way that you mix parts of a young girl's aesthetic (ponytails, flower patches, etc.) with punk rock and feminism.

Rachel Lynne said...

I feel exactly the same way! Everything moves veryy fast. Have fun at fashion week!

I love your look! And although it is your look I would like to say in my opinion it looks like it probably could use a bit more detail. Sorry for saying that if you don't like that. Just wondering, would you reply back an email if I sent you one? It's not for a school project, but I would really like it if you can inspire me and/or help me w/ my blog.

luvgmt.com said...

Haha, I'm so with ya on this. I was too lazy to cover the spring collections so I STILL reference fall. I did manage to fast forward and post a few Chanel pre-fall pics though.

Very excited to see what the next fall collections are like!

Peter Goodall said...

Both of them are fab!!

HENRY FRY said...

Great combination of soft and strong (in terms of the cardigan and the colour). Super statement. Love the girl scout patch!

xSzkrabx said...

You must be glad that 70's are one of the biggest inspirations this season. I've glanced through your blog and I see huge amount of flowers and colours :)

You look very girlish and innocent. Not like the youngest well known so called 'style icon'.

Keep going Tavi, I wish you luck!

brisk dash of colour in the greyness of not-spring-yet. nice.

I got to buy some items from a theatre company today and there wasn't much in the way of vintage clothing, but I did find these Cheap Bra Sets.
