i like "movie site" myself

Ugh, URL scare! In case anyone is accessing this from my blogspot address (ewww going back to that, ewww ideas I had in 6th grade), the new URL is stylerookieblog.com. At least the site makes it look like I have an in with J-Lo and that I am a girl being forced to look like I enjoy college for a picture in a brochure. She may be half-smiling, but I can see in her eyes that she wants to be rescued.

I can help you, College Girl! Perhaps you might be interested in some Watch Free Movie? The adventures of GI Joe? Or simply The Movie, if you are one for ambiguity?

Aaaaanyway, my uniform lately has been a tiara decorated one way or another and a sweater and a long skirt. Blah blah Meadham Kirchhoff blah Courtney blah blah riffs on femininity in the form of girl scout patches and jewelry with images from popular culture on them blahhhhhh.

I had to carry around a box of SweetHearts today when the heart stuck on top would get too worn down.
Duskin dress, Miu Miu collar, Bewitched necklace from Flamingo Cupcake on Etsy, and Cheer patch from Troop Moore on Ebay.

EDIT: More lies! Again! Back to http://www.thestylerookie.com/, yippee.

why don't you paint a sweetheart with clear nail polish??

I once mummified a scorpion in that manner and I still have the thing lying around in perfect tact.

Dona said...

i kept on retyping your website with different variations (i got desperate) and mourned silently every time Miss College Girl popped out.

sincerely, YCM said...

oh my gosh i was SO confused! how did that happen?! shouldn't a little fashion prodigy get the rights to website versus a probably illegal website that no one will use?

sincerely, M

Tavi said...

Well that'd be nice, but Blogger didn't send me an email when my URL was about to expire so other people were able to snatch it up.

Mitchie said...

haha i saw on ur tumblr that u hate the internet. now i know why.
It was nice to see you at the Miu Miu Fall Winter 2011/2012 Ready-To-Wear show in Paris!

Camille said...

bahahaha! i literally almost had a heart attack when I couldn't find your blog. gotta love the inter-webs -_-

Tara Violet said...

how annoying that you had to change your url! that college girl and fake site...cringe...

that tiara is perfect! and your miu miu collar goes ever so wonderfully with that bewitched necklace. (oh Bewitched-love that show. used to watch loads of episodes of I Love Lucy, Bewitched, and The Brady Bunch on Sunday mornings on the channel T.V. Land when I was little) I looked through Flamingo Cupcake's etsy and was astonished by the sheer variety of wonderful cameo necklaces she's selling! I might get one of Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby. her shop is glorious.

Linus said...

I got scarded when I saw the backpack lady, glad I found your site back! oh, and like the tiara too.

zoomslow said...

Hmmm...well I think I'm up for a bit of Fandango, actually.

I was a bit devastated for a while there :-( But it's great that you're back :-)) Bewitched necklace = <3

Ash said...

LOL. I had to google your blog before I found the new link :)

Love the idea of carrying around a box of candies the whole day. If I did that, I'd be all "Oh, is the candy on my tiara melting?"
"Excuse me, but what?"
"Oh. Did you want some?"

Stephanie said...

You should dye your hair red. Like Claire Danes red.

That's all:)

editor said...

Oh, boy. That was an interesting journey between google reader, college lady, google, back to college lady, google, and then here, all while being on the phone and pretending I'm 100% into the conversation while I'm actually kind of freaking out. Alas, Tavi, you have not disappeared into the depths of spammy pages. I agree with Leviathan, nail polish works wonders on preserving pretty much anything. I did it with pieces of paper... not that they would go bad, I just liked the way the blue glitter polish looked against the lined paper. I'd say just dip the whole tiara bow and everything in sparkly nail polish and hang to dry.

Mina Jade said...

That smile does look like a forced one!

i love you and this is the first time you could potentially see it! i've been reading your blog from the literal start. i follow you on tumblr. once i was going to go to chicago and do a total 80's move outside your window, with the boom box, playing miss world.

so yeah, thats pretty much it.

no but for real, i'm just a girl your age and i think you're an amazing writer.

brodie said...

The only word I can think of to describe these ACKsessories is FANDANGO! xo

anne b. said...

that miu miu collar continues to be amazing.

Hattie said...

naked lady collar + SweetHearts on a tiara = excellence

Ro Furkim said...

Tavi dear! I got desperate _ the college girl _ ugh! Thanks God you come back, to inspire me! Love.

Houndstooth Bunny said...

Gosh, no wonder i couldn't find your blog. I like your collar:)
Read my blogg yala-yada.blogspot.com I'll be so honoured:D

Hannah May said...

haha! i got very confused!

http://not18forever.blogspot.com/

Lola said...

omg that was sooo confusing!! We all got college girl as the main search result, worrying! And the funny thing , I recommended your blog to a friend and she was telling me today how your site isn't coming up. I was v.v.worried! Annoying re:blogger, oh well though, your new url is similar and at least the old link comes up first!

xxx

Engreida said...

Phew, you're back!

Bella said...

Ha, when Miss Default College Girl showed up all my friends e-mailed me like WHAT THE? TAVI'S WEBSITE ISN'T WORKING!!! I just typed:
apocalypse.

So, then I tried all kinds of different wordings and even tried your old blogspot url but an annoying message from Blogger ('redirecting!') every single time.

MEHHH. Anyway, I'm glad your blog is running again! I love the patch and the heart in the tiara. Cute/witchy/schoolgirl/cheerleader look!

That college girl needs a dose of Ghost World and some John Hughes movies and she should start being an individual again rather than just a default College Girl. Yes.

love your tiara and outfit
i want to make a long "manly" rendering of a black witches outfit, but have yet to figure it out in my head.

i remember my brother eating wedding favours even after i told him they're usually sprayed with sealants. just had a flashback to those days there because of the cutie pie candy on your tiara, when i used to pop in by 7 eleven and eat sweethearts and pixystix.

in the words of my claustrophobic grade 7 french teacher

Isabella said...

haha i was wondering why the picture of that girl kept popping up on my "most visited sites" page.
The tiara's AWESOME.
I <3 you tavi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poppy said...

I'm sorry but i might actually have to eat your tiara

The Clothes Press said...

I'm glad to see you haven't been replaced with college girl...
She scared me....
Love the Sweethart addition to the tiara. :)

This is a rad post Tavi. You make me happy. You also rule.

annetheteenager said...

No college girl on my computer, just a big, fat Google sign and a 'the site you're looking for does not exist'.

The first time that happened, my stomach curled into a ball.

The second time that happened, I began to twitch nervously and went to grab some coffee.

The third time, I literally got tears in my eyes.

By the fourth time, I was as good as convinced that you had shut down the page. Depression came, fast and hard.


Then...

I got on Twitter to see if that was possibly true. Then I saw your new link. I clicked it. And BAM.

Oh sweet relief.



....And I love your tiara, princess.

noratheteenager said...

By the way, I know everything about blog mistakes made in 6th grade. Just take a look at my URL...

DAISY said...

That darn grrll follows me,

BAM there she is smiling away, happy at my typing failings

I love the Miu Miu collar. I have never seen college girl before (I think it may be a US phenomenon) but her perfectly even,ghostly white smile is terrifying!

I want to know why I didn't got a email from you about the "magazine" ? You said that everyone will hear back! I didn't !
Have a nice day Love your Miu Miu !

Star-Light said...

love the collar!!

Frockspotter said...

Aah good, back to Style-Rookie-normalness! I love the princess-y style you're going for (very Barbie, the MiuMiu collar definetly gives it an edge!)

Hanna said...

What a fabric of lies! (Ovi referring to the Miu Miu collar.)

Hanna said...

But only slightly...

My Heart Blogged said...

I hate sites like that. Not only do they confuse you, they are weird too.

YAY you're back! I was so scared! Like WHAT?? what happened to Tavi? glad you're back <3

The Fancy Teacup said...

Haha, I was like what the heck? when that picture showed up yesterday when accessing your site! Glad you have made quick comeback. That Miu Miu collar is so delectable.

much love.

Cristina said...

Love the Mui Mui...and I agree with the comment on dying your hair "My So Called Life" red. It totally goes with your 90's vibe (very angsty) and then all you would need is a military style backpack which is easly found at army surplus stores or the easier, more hipster Urban Outfitters route. Do it!

Pauline said...

Did you made that crown yourself? Looks pretty creative kind of like a trashyprincess :P

oh that's so stupid when suddenly your URL changes, I experienced it before to go to sides that suddenly were like trying to sell something or just searchingmachines, that's so annoying! & then you keep retyping the URL because you think you mistyped it, totally get that!

By the way, where did you get that MiuMiu collar? It's adorable!

Zany Style said...

love love love the tiara, it also gives it more character that the candy heart is upside down.

I saw the movie site also when i tried logging into your site - i was like omg! the movie site used to be under www.stylerookie.com until i realised there's supposed to be a "the" in front ... few days ago, i checked both sites thinking i may have clicked the wrong url - was i shocked to find out your site has been snatched?- YEP!! It's like as if they were waiting like a hunter :P

Anyway, it's a good thing you've sorted it out coz you have such wonderful story going on onto your site & alot of peeps (esp me) would still want to know more of your views on fashion!

Thanks!

You need to see this artist's work: http://www.parkerito.biz/
He did a whole really really weird thing with that ubiquitous college girl.
It's half-creepy half-really cool.

Zayin said...

Dear Tavi,

Just discovered your blog. I love it. I'm 26. I love that you write what you think, and wear what you like untrammeled by trend or convention. You're teaching the masses to dress! :) You know what "cool skinny bitches" are? Basically people who ignore everyone that isn't "their friend". Pathetic folk. Don't ever become one of them.

Aaaah I totally went to high school with College Girl! She's in like a ton of stock photos in random places on the internet, and I almost peed my pants when I saw that you wrote about her! I posted it on her facebook, hahaha. I don't know if she's a fan of your site, but she should be because you are awesome. And I wish I had gone to high school with you.

a blogger said...

Hey Tavi! I've been lurking around your blog for awhile now and I wanted to say. Um. Hi. *twitch*
Anyway, I was wondering if you knew anything about the former plus-size model Crystal Renn. She used to be a size 12, and was applauded in the modeling industry for being so comfortable with what some designers consider a "fat" body. (Ridiculous. Duh.) Anyway, she toned up to a size 8. And although she'd been in the industry for years, it was only when she dropped her dress size that she got on the cover of Vogue (recently). What's your take on this? I'd love to know. Thanks and have fun with ALL OF YOUR CLOOOOTHES.
