after about five lines of this post you're gonna wish you had five beers

Spencer's mom dug these out last time I was over and begrudgingly passed them on to me because having kids makes your feet grow. I'm really glad Spencer was born because now I have great platforms.

I have been trying to channel Enid in them, and along with that a bit of Riccardo Tisci's version of Enid, hence the print.


Thrifted longsleeve and skirt, jacket sent to me by Risto, random socks, joke shop glasses, and tiny Goody daisy barrettes I stuck in the shoelaces. I'm not used to listing so few outfit components! That's because this was truly a spring break outfit. Sleep is such a wonderful thing.

Explicit Enid reference via a button my friend gave me.

the jacket is pretty adorable x

Claire said...

The eyes on the jacket are so freaky and cool. The look like they're staring at us. It kind of makes me think that the jacket is actually a very smart animal that takes the form of the jacket and possesses the wearer.
(okay that made sense in my head)
The shoes and socks are SO A+.

Caddy said...

This outfit is one of my faves from you.

GRACEDCHIN said...

I like the way the black n' blue from the socks and shoes match the shades from Enid's catwoman mask!

also the color of your shirt makes me crave smarties, not beer.

Tweeny said...

there's way too much coolness going on in these pics. the jacket is insane in the best way possible

Renee said...

There will be one day that I'm not envious of other people's shoes.

Guess it is not today.

cancercowboy said...

these shoes sure kick ass. the jacket merges cool with creepy. to me the outfit gives off a hardboiled, kinda skinhead(NOT the racist fuckheads)/hard mod vibe. haven't decided yet if the sunglasses add an insectile feel (all hail the hornet queen, may she feast on her homecoming copy ^___^ /gotta thank your mien for this brilliant analogy ;p ) or a Venetian-carnival-mask look. thanks for kicking my lazy mind in the butt (again)

Complete Catnap said...

If Enid were a color, I bet she'd be "bat wing lick" or "vampire collar gloss", that is if she were a nail polish. Paint swatch, I don't know.

TobyOliverDean said...

ten?

SophieGrace said...

That jacket = Amazing!

martinacox said...

the platforms are fucking sickkkk
i dig themm

Molly said...

This is wonderful!

Jenny said...

tavi, where are your shoes from?

Six Six Sick said...

Always a sucker for Risto. I have a the same jacket in a different print--a melted iridescent plaid kinda pattern. I love the eyes on this one, and how you can't tell if it's a bird or a cat or an ewok thing.

Tara Violet said...

oh, Enid. this outfit is great. those sunglasses! I love how they mimic her mask, you worked that out perfectly. those shoes are insanely good. don't you just love when you get amazing clothes handed down to you? the majority of my favorite clothes like my rainbow harlequin skirt and my riding-esque knee boots belonged to my mother.

and I adore your psychedelic eye jacket.

munchkins said...

Ghost world is the coolest. it's awesome that tavi is spreading the awareness of ghost world!

I absolutely fell in love with this jacket? Where can normal people get it? :D

Eco Creative said...

it's not actually true that having kids makes your "feet grow". What happens is that the ligaments in your feet as well as the rest of your body are made loose by a hormone in your body in preparation for childbirth and if you have poor posture, you can overstretch and permanently damage the ligaments in your feet, lose your arches and get flat feet. important to keep weight on the heels rather than the front of the foot. see "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back" by Esther Gokhale
