i've got a high school crush on a california girl oh yeah

I'm getting into neon Weetzie Bat summer witch surfer girl skater babe vibes as soon as finals are over. My brains have melted from school and the heat and can no longer think in terms of academics. During my interview test for French my teacher asked what I later found out meant, "What is your favorite dessert?" and I answered what I later found out meant, "I love biology!" So, you know. Summer. Please?

Weetzie Bat, mollysoda, Melanie Dawn Harter, Kerplunk-Punk, Hasisi Park, Nicole Levaque, Teen Witch Nicki Minaj shrine, old Elsa Schiaparelli perfumes, Skate Witches, Etsy but I can't remember the store (help?), Undercover "Alice" dress detail, Competition Skates' Rampage, Gemma Ward by Corinne Day for Vogue UK, unknown photographer, Peyote-Princess, and Peyote once again (her blog and new tumblr).

I always like the angry colorful vibes I get from you girl!

The Fancy Teacup said...

Can't wait to see the neon celebration you put on once finals have ceased! Best wishes.

These images somehow remind me of The Virgin Suicides; maybe because I just watched it.
I know exactly what you mean; I have exams coming up and my mind is just ... blah at the moment.
I love your unique style and individuality.

Jesus. I'm sewing eyeball buttons on all my clothes from now on.

enjoy your summer!

md said...

Tavi, Have you watched Buffy yet? It's basically MSCL -- with vampires.

notanymore said...

Oh, Tavi. Just wait until you get to college. And then graduate school. No summers when you need the credits.

Also, please tell your teachers how much they mean to you... many of them have to stay at school and do workshops. It's boring, we teachers don't like it. We teach because of you, and when you're not there, it's just work. Boring work.

Great photos!

Clairedontcare said...

I kinda love velvet underground and all these pictures remind me of nico in a very strange dark way

Alexi Frest said...

I love everything that looks gothic - I especially like the first photo with the rodent. The hair and make-up (the girl's and not the rodent's) look awesome. By the way, I still cannot understand why you visit school. Do your parents force you to do so? Had I had a chance, I would have skipped school in the first possible moment - actually that was what I did. I have quite an acceptable IQ and knowledge about literature and arts (I do not want to boast, but there you go), but surely I do not owe it to school and teachers and classmates... You really could afford to leave school...

Carnivorous Seaweed said...

Wow weetzie bat! I borrowed it from the library in 3rd grade and I was like WTF?! but now I understand how wonderfully high that book is.

I SO get this.... :)

zoomslow said...

Fun! :-)) Colourful and textural magical mystery vibes. Nice mix of words and images, Tavi.

And thanks for the songs! Speaking of which, I’m in the process of writing one now. I’ve taken some inspiration from your “rei kawakubo (H&M)”. The song will be called ‘This is a Hold Up’. I originally had in the chorus, “That’s what he said and that’s OK!” But then decided it’s probably not such a good thing to endorse, so changed it to, “That’s what he said, it’s not OK!”

I’m sure Lennon/McCartney went through this kind of moral complexity all the time during their song-writing days :-)

I love weetzie on all the dangerous angels stories. listen to Suddenly Last Summer by the Motels. it makes me think of weetzie.

chelsea said...

Have you seen the I Love Wildfox Weetzie Bat inspired photo shoot? I posted it on my blog (http://dearilou.blogspot.com/2011/04/style-icon-weetzie-bat-again.html) You would love it. I definitely do. Weetzie is so slinkster cool.

alexis said...

i can't believe there isn't a photo of Yolandi Vi$$er and her rats.

Tavi said...

Kionon - I appreciate my teachers a great deal! My dad taught at my school for over 30 years and has instilled in me lots of respect for my educators. (If that doesn't sound like an English teacher's daughter's comment...)

Mina Jade - Ha, I actually really like high school, and all my different teachers have a lot to offer. I wouldn't be allowed to quit and even so I wouldn't want to.

darkcrystalmagick - Oh thanks for the new links! You're amazing!

WOW you have no idea how sad you made me when you said you don't remember the etsy shop

Brianna Dearest said...

loving this entire post. "witch baby" is the first FLB novel i ever read. this post has inspired me to take my dangerous angels chronicles along when i go on tour for two weeks with my friends' band as my reading material.

DoeHands said...

I'M SOOOOOO happy to see that Real Life teenagers still find out about Francesca Lia Block books, I was so bummed when all the vampire books were at the borders but there was no sight of FLB last time I checked around the holidays. Also, your playlist was a great soundtrack to clean my apartment to and think of my friends and family in CA while I'm in the midwest also!

Tilly Mix said...

Have you read the Angus, Thongs, etc books? Your "I love biology" is a classic :)

"Victory. Victory. Madame Slack has been on my case about being lazy in French and I have just got eighty-five percent in a test. Hahahaha. Fermez la bouche, Madame Slack. I did it by learning twenty-five words and then making sure I answered every question by using only those words. So to question one-'In French, what is your favorite food?' my answer was "Lapin" (rabbit). For my essay, 'What did you do on a sunny day?' I made sure I played with a rabbit. Describe a favorite book-Watership Down-lots of lapins in that" -Georgia Nicolson.

Unknown said...

Thanks for reminding me of Witch Baby! Now I want to go re-read it ASAP.

And I LOVE when you post these mixes. Your taste in music is fabulous. I was especially pleased to hear some Joni Mitchell today.

mad said...

Did you ever read Violet & Claire? That was by far my favorite FLB book when i was teenager. Her style of writing so beautiful and ethereal...

Alice said...

I love this. It makes me want to draw evil eyes on my forehead & stare at strangers.

I have finals tomorrow but instead of studying today I just went to the beach. It's too hot. Also don't feel bad about French-someone in my Spanish class opened her written exam letter with 'Dear Rosa, what is your name?'

Anonymous said...

So Colorful!

Sarah Moriarty said...


You must immediately get yourself all albums by Helium, but start with Pirate Prude and Dirt of LUck to continue your summer vibes. "Honeycomb" is my favorite song EVER. Mary Timony, who you probably already know, is exactly your kind of woman--witchy, sparkly, bee-yoo-tee-ful, and ridiculously talented.


Carys said...

I love your photos of inspiration. In every post they're always so effective in conveying your particular mood. I like how you can put an outfit together and then show these images and it makes complete sense.


Anonymous said...

i was so in love with francesca lia block books when i was younger. i remember reading and rereading weetzie bat when i was a teenager (and i still read it now from time to time...) is that movie EVER gonna come out?!?!!

Anonymous said...

A very special friend of mine gifted me Dangerous Angels as a Christmas present. There is something so sickly sweet about a tale in the City of Angels that gives me reason to want to visit California in the near future. Like others have stated, I too find you wonderfully and refreshingly inspirational. Enjoy your summer~ <3

Is 22 to old to want rainbow-coloured hair? I feel like I missed out on something I should have done as a teenager.

riptidemurmur said...

one of my favorite series of all time! i adore flb's writing style. you can taste her blindingly beautiful prose.


Yo...Tavi, really love your blog, love the kinky goodies, love your style too. Keep post your open-eyed-open-mind for the rest of us.

Sincerely from the starter, faraway from islands of Indonesia.


Unknown said...

I heart The Velvet Underground. My fave from them is "I'm Sticking With You" because it sounds like a love note from a science nerd. And I say "nerd" with luhrve. I love rainbow/cosmic/mellowed out/surfer girl/California vibes. Speaking of "California", that's my fave song from Joni Mitchell. Haha.

Nienke said...

Those bleached hairs are just amazing.
I think I might go turquoise next, now that the pink has washed out haha

I found Francesca Lia Block in 9th grade, and it took over my world pretty quickly :). And, yes, 12 years later I still read them now & then. Good to know it still happens!


Amy Creyer said...

So much of this post reminds me of that Meadham Kirchoff collection. The one you have the jewelry from. I seriously think you inspired that collection Tavi.

Hi Tavi, I am a huge fan of yours. I could go on but many others do so just keep doin what you're doin. And here's a song to cheer you on while you do it: http://soundcloud.com/chelsieflorence/house-of-the-rising-sun

I am naive and I don't know what Weetzie Bat is, so I have nothing very worthwhile to contribute here, but it looks cool and sparkly etc etc. (merp monotone)
