bruise violet
















Comme des Garcons Fall 07, Juliet's room in Romeo + Juliet, my Hole shrine, Chanel Fall 09, unknown, the Virgin Suicides, Drew Barrymore, barbies by unknown, CdG Fall 07, Marcia Brady, Claire Danes as Juliet in Romeo + Juliet, Ed Ruscha, self-portrait I took for the new issue of POP (more on that later), But I'm a Cheerleader!, someone else's Hole shrine (source unknown), and CdG Fall 07. The CdG collection was supposed to be a girl's journey or something, so the placements on the dress went from bows and tiny dresses to stuffed gloves on the chest and hips with other kinds of lumps in between.

Ash said...

I love how a lot of your pictures radiate darkness...but still have a bit of brightness in them...how do you do that? Such a genius.

I just watched Romeo + Juliet on Netflix a few weeks ago. So excited that someone over 10 years younger than me is into it too. I LOOOOVEEEEDD that movie when it came out (still do) I had like every single R + J memorabilia all over my room. And I was obsessed with Leo, as was the rest of the female population my age. I saw it the day the movie came out!

wordbyjessie.com said...

what an eclectic mix of things you put together. i am a huge fan of the chanel bag, so different but so cool. i always love accents of barbie. so fabulous that you included some of my girl.

Omg that sweater! I die ;)

brodie said...

I appreesh the Ruscha inclusion. You should read Shopgirl- I think you'd really dig it; Steve Martin name-drops CDG as easily as he does Ruscha.

PS
this. always.

Mitchie said...

Who's room are you in anyways?

Kera said...

Ohhhhh see now that is what it's all about. You are beyond! I'm twice your age and would love to hang out with you.

Great post, once again. Thanks.

awesome photos as usual, really inspiring.. it makes me wanna watch those movies over and over again... you "look" sunglasses are insane, where'd you get them?!
I never liked CDG 07 collection as a wearable piece, but I do appreciate the art in it, it's fun clothes.. stay cool..

Ashley said...

Orphin Lasz said...

I've always liked your choices for themed-posts, and I must say, your self-portrait is really nice, Miss Tavi!
I can sort of feel an angsty vibe, from it, even. Really nice job!

"doll parts" xD

love this post tavi.
the CdGFall07 reminds me of cotton candy Pierrot, blowing out from a bubble at a carnival. Especially the second photo. I have a bit of an obsession with pierrot, harlequin, buffoons or anything related to the Commedia dell'arte. Take care xD xoxo

cancercowboy said...

the hues... these pastel shades of pink and turquoise blue add up to something eerie, can't quite put my finger on it. anyways, what are you wearing there? it isn't a boa. looks a bit like a giant muff tried to swallow you ;) is it one of these "50s things that glamorous women draped around their shoulders but i forgot the name", kinda like a short cape? ahh, the suspense ^___^ whatever it is, it LOOKs good ^__^ finally, let me exploit the presence of a Ruscha work as a lame excuse to recommend Exit Through The Gift Shop to anyone. pretty amusing, sometimes even hilarious movie. OBEY ^______^
damn, gotta cut down on the sugar, sorry for the verboseness

I love this pic of you Tavi! Such a beauty. Totally jealous of your pink feather capelet.

Alli The Totally Wicked Novelist said...

For the picture of the girls on the bed for about 30 seconds it looked like the picture was 3 different pictures next to each other. So bizzare. Any way, your picture was great and I adore those glasses! :) Yeah thats the only intelligent thing i have to say. :)

Linus said...

Love the glasses, so ironic!

Charlotte said...

I love your self portrait!

owlinalarkworld said...

I have a picture of those chanel leggings + legwarmers on my wall.
They are my tights inspiration and whenever I am in an Op Shop I have an urge to turn old-man cardigans into tights.

Keep up the bloggingness :)

I always love your eclectic photo collage posts, great pictures.

zoomslow said...

The bubble photo is so nice! I was using a bubble wand with some kids a while ago, and we took some pictures. But then looking back at the photos, you can’t see the bubbles, so it just looks like we’re performing some sort of weird free-form dance :-)

The self-portrait is great! The way you’re in the foreground, with the corner of the room in the background, and then all of the shapes and textures - creates a real 3D feel. And then there’s the contrast between the intensity of your gaze and the softness and pastel colourness (Go away spell-checker!!!) of everything else.

Mina Jade said...

I love those first photos - I love THIS shade of violet. And Drew Barrymore looked intriguing as a Lolita.
As for Claire Danes, how I adored Romeo and Juliet back then in '97... Its scenes were so crazy and modern, very spectacular.

Greta said...

love,love,love...
In every comment.like her pictures too,but this fawning is a bit silly.this is all fawning,see it on first sight.

Anastasia said...

Wow, I was watching Beavis and Butt-Head today and Bruise Violet came on and it was I'd never heard it before and I loved it and then I went on your blog and the first thing I see is 'bruise violet' Coincidences.
You're pretty cool, Tavi.

Fashion Nerd said...

Woah. What was that? That was so ironic and contradictory. All the photos were totally dfferent, but in a way all the same, so that they fit together. Like a puzzle, they all have somewhere to connect with the other photos. Once again you made a post that makes me think deep! I really like this post and your blog. Keep it up!

I tried to make one of those Chanel bag/contraption/things for my friend. Didn't go too well... Anywho, love these pictures! You've captured the theme perfectly.

boxmalak said...

yummy.
ive been feeling for these colors for a few days now.

Claire said...

Such great pastel colours. I've been very into this for a while. These photos have a weird combination of youthfulness and extreme sadness in a very heartbreaking way.
Also, the photo of you is utterly fabulous.

POPTUCKSHOP said...

Great moodboard, I remember seeing that Chanel vacuum formed bag a while back and thinking it was so cool (for a girl of course!)! And I'm pretty sure I witnessed Anna Wintour rejecting those CDG glove jackets from a shoot in The September Issue! Where does 'bruise violet' arise from, or is it just the underlying colour scheme? - POPTUCKSHOP

modelamode said...

I believe that the pink jacket in the end with the hand is in, The September Issue.

Love, love, love, your Hole shrine. I've worshipped her since I was ninish myself (I'm twenty-four now). I still don't brush my hair or wear a bra.
