fall vibes part 4

Also, Allison's red dress at the end of Cry-Baby, and red and blue for 3D glasses.
These fall vibes inspired Rookie in September when I made the moodboard...
This is the (crappily made) moodboard I sent Petra for September, and she came up with all this brilliance! (More of the school spirit one at the link, these are just my absolute favorites.) (Which ended up being most of them.)
More of Petra's photos for Rookie are here. And, we change the background photo every day, and the September ones were also basically everything I've been babbling on about, all these vintage photos of weird after school clubs and chatty girls walking to class, and we posted all of those here.
ALL THIS COHESION GIVES ME SUCH SATISFACTION

Most of the real life fall vibes didn't get captured, which I am okay with, because you know what can be kind of nice? Not having to document/share/publish everything and letting some things just be really sweet private memories. It's all in my notebook, which of course is red.
From when I borrowed Miu Miu, with my Twin Peaks necklace and the Secret Diary of Laura Palmer.
These are from a day of Twizzlers and Crunch bars and listening to a 50s/60s girl groups mixtape and trying to find parts of our town that don't look like they exist now or here. My little button is a rainbow that says JESUS underneath, given to me by a true Catholic-raised teenager who now resents her father. Anaheed says I look a little stoned in this photo, so I can now add "on drugs" to my list of ways in which my face deceives people by telling them I am: angry, sad, cursing voodoo on them in my head while they are speaking.
And this is me being pensive, like our friend Joey here.

I have enjoyed reading your posts on Fall Vibes so very much... so much that I even got a back to school crave! Memories of being back in high school...!

Re. Fall vibes part 3

I have you to thank for introducing me to The Royal Tenenbaums. I think you normally use that, “I have you to thank…” in a negative way, like, “I have you to thank for my broken ankle!” But in this case it’s all good <3

Margot is a huge inspiration! It’s: that consistency/insistency of her style (but always cool), her individuality/independence, plus her early love of plays/play-writing.

I’m not really familiar with Bill and ‘Freaks and Geeks’ – but that’s a heart-warming clip. Reminds me of an Andy Warhol quote about how anyone anywhere drinking Coke, experiences exactly the same thing – it was something like, “All Coke’s are the same and all Coke’s are good.” But in this case we have young Bill at home (?) watching a successful comedian (Gary Shandling?) on TV. Their worlds could not be more different, but they are both thoroughly enjoying the joke :-)

Re. Fall vibes part 4

The lists are amazing! I can kind of see how you might be piecing it all together in your mind [ALL THIS COHESION GIVES ME SUCH SATISFACTION = Yay, Tavi! :-)]. And I think I’m starting to now as well! I’m just really getting into the general vibe that’s emerging from it all. So thanks for letting us see, and at least in my case, take inspiration from this process :-)

And the kind of school photos… I like how you focus in on the colours, the patterns, the prints, the poses etc. You seem to have a very clear vision and understanding of all this…I must have walked around my school with my eyes shut (clueless) :-/

Photos of Tavi: Especially like that second last one of you. With respect to Anaheed, I really don’t think you look drug-affected. I just think you look particularly kind of accessible and interesting here. I could imagine myself sitting opposite you, as you look at me and kindly reach into your red duffle bag to get a Crunch bar for me??? :-))) And of course I really like the last one because you just look very pretty!

P.S Not to be creepy but I could seriously print out your notebook pages and hug them. The ‘Colors and patterns’ pages are particularly beautiful.

Love this :)

The craft is deffo what I wished I dressed like in high school, alas I wasn't that cool.

Yours is my favorite blog. True inspiration, and I have really been appreciating the fall vibes posts, not to mention the one about The Virgin Suicides. Thank you for such a great blog.

It's so nice to find more twin peaks grease cry baby heathers geeks in the world!
Have you seen Dream a Little Dream?
Reality Bites? Rushmore?
I think you would like them.
Also- I know Dirty Dancing is too dorky for some, but the mood is autumnal to me- what do you think?
Yes, I was a teen in the 90s - and it was good times;)

Jessica said...

Love the colour overlapping diagram/chart thing!
You really are so beautiful...I know you don't like being called "conventionally pretty" but your not stereotypical pretty, its a different kind...yeah so I sound pretty creepy...anyway great post!

Raymond Suny said...

You like Flog gnaw! I read the new Rookie everyday... even though I am a boy. I still like it a lot!

Melissa said...

The diagrams are a teacher's dream. Think, pair, share.

Acid wash!

Paloma Rose said...

I'm glad to see that you're embracing red and blue because I always want to wear those colors together, but I feel so Fourth of July. Now I see the possibilities! Also, everyone needs to see Heavenly Creatures.
On a final note, this post was a thing of beauty. Everything is so cohesive and my eyes are celebrating.

But wait... I must be reading your venn diagram wrong. Last time I checked, pizza was not red blue and green. Unless that's not a picture of pizza.

You are truly mesmerizing. Totally stocked about all things gingham, striped, and plaid. Oh, and knee high socks, of course.

Coco said...

Me ha gustado mucho la entrada, todo lo americano con temática de instituto y su repercusión en la moda me parece muy interesante! cool pics and nice outfit, this entree has been put together very nicely!

cancercowboy said...

your schemata are getting more and more elaborate, clear evidence that you're sporting the stoner tunnel vision ^____^
i once had this great idea to reorganize my cd collection whilst high as a kite... i don't recommend it ^__^
at least your eyes seem to cope with the light, one of the worst nuisances when stoned in the daytime, as reliable sources are forced to admit ;)
have a nice weekend.

Very cool pictures!!!!!I love it!~

Witch Doctor in Training said...

Seriously.? You are awesome. You remind me of a much stronger, braver and pensive me when I was your age. I am only 27 now, but it is so encouraging to see your young talent recognized on a global scale, the interwebs! Holy mackerel!
I know you will keep true to your message. Girls and teenagers everywhere need good female role models to help support them. Too many times, this will prove opposite with girl's jealousy or straight up competitiveness. It won't stop in the workplace until woman make it a point to stop. There is the glass ceiling that the men CEOs set and then there is the ceiling that women set for our counterparts. I believe in solidarity and I believe that is what you support even though you may not know it yet. Please keep it up! Girls need a good independent girl as their role model. :)
Beware of money and slick CEOs

You've inspired me to do some calender making. Again, I love the photography and the two toned hair

These little lists and notes you've been posting are so precious, I used to do the exact same thing, during classes, listing everything I was into, trying to define myself, putting together an identity in between Math and English.

Iselin said...

Hei=) Tøft at du tørr være deg selv i klesveien. Det skal mye til av en tenåring. Skal ganske mye mot til på din alder, da de fleste vil kle seg likt alle andre, for å passe inn. Hva er vitsen. Vær deg selv. Vær unik.
Hilsen Iselin
