stick hippo

Last night Marisa and I had the ultimate slumber party. We ordered pizza, wore tiaras to see PROM with Jamie and my friend Claire, made friendship bracelets, and read aloud from Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. We sat in our PJ's talking about high school and Catalanos and Rayannes and feminism. It was the ultimate! Like that song Lindsay Lohan sang in Freaky Friday. We also talked about Lindsay Lohan.
Quality temporary tattoos.
Tiaras, one passed down from Marisa and one from Walgreens.
Note the American Girl sleeping bag.

Also:
My So-Called Life theme Cut Your Hair by Pavement Teenage Whore by Hole Teenagers From Mars by the Misfits Lust For Life by Girls Loop Duplicate My Heart by Suburban Kids With Biblical Names Boyfriend by Best Coast Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper Bad Reputation by Joan Jett Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill 16 and Suicide by Huggy Bear Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana Sixteen by No Doubt I Was a Teenage Werewolf by the Cramps I Can Never Go Home Anymore by the Shangri-Las At Seventeen by Janis Ian Thirteen by Big Star Playground Love by Air Baba O'Riley by the Who Teen Age Riot by Sonic Youth. Download here for when you're angsty, or for always, or maybe both of those are the same thing for you!
Then she left and I acted really cool taking pictures of myself smiling in front of my house!!!! It's this kind of social activity that won me the title of prom queen. Back to school vibes, Twin Peaks, etc. Top gift from Meadham Kirchhoff, thrifted jumper, random Boy London patch and socks.
And my favorite white picket fence birthday loafers Rachel Antonoff gave me.

Also, quick question, just been on my mind lately, I dunno -- WHY IS IT NOT SUMMER?

UGH I envy your life!
No one wanted to see Prom with me so I was forced to go see Scream 4 instead, which wasn't bad but OMG, PROM.
Anyways, you look so cute and happy. Makes me want a cafeteria cupcake real bad!

Mina Jade said...

Teenage Whore by Hole, I like it! That is cool. Besides, friendship bracelets are cool ( friendships, too).

when you are 25, it's much more harder to sleep in with your friends, so it's always awesome to watch others have the fun you had!

Madeleine said...

Summer is in Europe. Even up in cold Sweden were I am from, have been walking around in skirt and bare legs for a weak now.

Alexis said...

that slightly awkward moment, when you read the playlist and already have all those songs because i am a backround character from my so called life, who would totally hit on Mr. Chase and just a garbage pail kid.

Phoebe said...

Temporary tattoos=funnest things ever at sleepovers.
Especially cheap Halloween ones.
Of ghosts.

Queen said...

You have a great taste in music.

coldclove said...

I love ur laofers! :)

olivia said...

I agree. Why is it Monday, why is it not summer, why do exams exist?

I love the playlist! You should listen to "The Future Starts Slow" by The Kills and "Young Blood" by the Naked and Famous.

Cristina said...

Why is it not summer indeed! It's the stupid weather in Erie PA too and I can't stand it! Anyway, I miss sleepovers. Don't ever grow out of them! You look adorable with that smile on your face :) I'm sure you didn't want to here that!

Flaunt It said...

Hey Tavi,
Great post...love that outfit so cute!
Check out my blog, I'd love to hear your thoughts :-)

Kirsten said...

I love the image of your authentic slumber party. It is perfect. I also make mix tapes for all awesome events!

Megan Hattie said...

Cutest loafers ever! The white part looks like a continuation of the socks and that boggled my mind for a few seconds. Sounds like a fun sleepover night, I'd kill to be back in high school for a night, hosting sleepover's at my parents' house... enjoy it! I'd also kill for some actually decent pizza, it's hard to find in Paris on a budget. Nice mixtape as well.
:)

Cheers!

Hole is the bomb. I am hooked.

And umm have you seen this place? http://thefbomb.org/

It looks pretty legit. I have just found it via http://www.theseventeenmagazineproject.com/ which I also thought was interesting. Then again, you've probably seen all of these things.

Aliza said...

THAT JUMPER IS TOO PERFECT I LOVE IT TOO MUCHH. AND THE SHOES. i might the jumper with doc martens or black moccasins because that's what I have in my closet but I love the loafers. When me and my friends have sleepovers we also read aloud from Judy Bloom books, and Are you there God It's Me Margaret is one of our favorites. I count myself a feminist but sadly a number of my females friends are oddly "against" it, as I'm sure they're inhaling some sort of inaccurate male spew of false information, or more likely from their stay at home moms. Sorry that was a rant. Love this post!

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

It's been freezing,where I live too! I live in CA and it rained today! I keep on saying I need to go summer shopping,but there's no point in going, if it's just gonna ran, right?

chloe said...

Hey tavi, I follow your tumblr and was interested in the posts where you and your friends listed the good things about that prom movie. I thought it was really cool cuz it spearheaded all the lame Disney bullshit on most modern teen movies today. It's like, do they think we are all shallow idiots? Anyway, I thought it would be cool if you maybe did a more extensive post about that movie or maybe other current kid/ teen shows. You always have a refreshing ( lol I know that's a corny word..) take on older pop culture, so it would be cool to hear more about what you think in terms of recent teen movies. Just a suggestion, I'm sure you get ideas for posts all the time. Keep on being awesome

The skirt appears to be flaring of its own accord; such is the delicacy of your grip.

P.S I originally just had a comma here, but Word has advised me to use a semicolon. I really don’t know how to use them so sure, why not! :-)

Temporary tattoos I use don't ever turn out that well!

Hey Tavi,
First time comment from a fellow OPer although I don't live there anymore. Just noticed this post and stopped in my tracks. That jumper is the former St. Giles uniform (north OP on columbian). The plaid is amazing and those loafers are kickass (if only I had those when I wore that jumper). -Cassie
