purple hair and jaguars and retirees

I am now at Fashion Week, stalking people whose style I admire to take their picture for STOPS, the street style project of GARAGE Magazine, at which I am a contributing editor. It is one of my favorite fashion magazines ever for how interestingly it incorporates all other kinds of inspiration. I am pleased to work for any fancy publication that would let Edward of Meadham Kirchhoff and I curate our own section devoted to the work of young feminist artists and zinemakers and girls making inspiration diaries from their bedrooms. (I really need to make a video flipping through it soon.) Here are today's subjects, whose pictures I plan on compiling at the end of the week into a game of Guess Who, as well as a quilt, and a giant posterboard to hang in my room that says BEST OF FRIENDS.
I really appreciated MJ's rainbow pills with the black and white crazy pants print.
Arabelle, who also writes for Rookie, could wear sweatpants and still I'd be like OMG YOUR OUTFIT YOUR HAIR, but she also wears vintage lace collars that correspond with her Zana Bayne harnesses and by that point I can't even handle it anymore.
Kristin's very textured self understands my need to be constantly entertained and amused because I kept freaking out about each individual detail. KNEE ZIPPERS OK.
Nicolette was wearing jaguars and polka dots together and it needed to be documented.
And Erin said she hated her school uniform when she was in school and now she is a grown lady who wears that style by choice all the time. I recommend her coverage and lovely photos of Lauren Moffatt's presentation, which fits right in with her adorable outfit.

Here I am, contributing editing. Photo by Arabelle.
Sweater from Edward, skirt gift from Miu Miu, Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony shoes, and I borrowed the bag from Anaheed. The sweater has the little flying heart witch from the album art for Hole's Live Through This, my desert island album. This outfit is kinda like this combined with this.
The necklace is my mom's, the barrettes are all randomly accumulated, and the ring I made by gluing a thing to another thing. Lately all I do is sit at my desk and watch stuff and find things in my room I can glue onto rings or to pipe cleaners to then shape into rings. (I do this using my muscles.) The button my dad got at a retirement party. Little did young Billy (idk) know that he would one day be immortalized on a stranger's sweater! The mints just felt appropriate to include here.

How is it possible that Arabelle looks so perfect all of the time o m g. (Dat hat, dat cape.) Also, all of these ladies are gorgeous! I didn't know who Erin was but I love what she's wearing. Your beehive looks fantastic!

Now to go find out what GARAGE is all about...

Marlena said...

OMG YOUR SWEATER! ♥____♥
I actually DIY'd a stencil version of the Hole witch design awhile back and stuck it on a black pull-over... it's still not as awesome as the Meadham Kirchhoff original though! T.T
I really love how you paired all the black in this outfit with a little pastel, too. <3 Oh, and your hair looks amaaaazing.

hanna said...

The combination of the gun-shape on your bag and hole in your tights make for a super badass look, like a criminal woman on the run who doesn't give a shit about her hosiery because there are more important things in life, like having super-high gorgeous hair and escaping the law. or was that just me?

Edward Wong said...

Tavi, I'm sad--I don't want you to grow-up.

Aduaa said...

POPTUCKSHOP said...

How do you do it??! Gifts from Meadham Kirchhoff, your own magazine and still staying level-headed! Your jumper is incredible by the way, I had to feature it in my Halloween post last year! The entire outfit is amazing, your hair looks gorgeous - the beehive totally suits you - and that pistol bag is something else! Loving the Longchamp x Jeremy Scott in the first picture as well! Will you be at Meadham Kirchhoff FW12? I'm hoping to get there this year, maybe I will meet you!!

MJ's myriad of patterns and Erin's take on defying on the school uniform totally caught my eye. And you look absolutely darling! The barrettes and the random tear in your stockings are the cherries on top. x

Lydia said...

It is so nice to see some outfits on your blog!!! The inspiration posts are always cool, but it's always more inspiring to me to see what people are actually doing with their style. MJ looks fabulous--- I am loving her whole look. You look amazing---- your style has evolved into something so cohesive and cool. Love how opaque your tights are, and that little pop of saccharine color.

Josephine said...

I love this post! I've missed the outfit posts! And this looks very good!!!! (I'm considering to ask my grandma to knit me a sweater with a print on. Kinda like the Hole-one)

mouse said...

Zoё said...

You never fail to impress me, I love what you're wearing here, you've really put your own spin on it with the barrettes and the skirt is such a great shade of mint. Being a contributing editor too must be so fun and I can't wait to see what you've added to the magazine.

Abbie said...

I like the first pic and the way she has teamed patterend harems with a slogan tee. Very cool!!

francesca said...

I want that Hole witch sweater possibly more than anything I have ever wanted.Ever.

Did I mention ever?

francesca said...

Also OMG YOU HAVE HOLE BARRETTES.

I had a pair from the Roseland Ballroom in NYC show on the Live Through This tour.

You are my idol.

Abby Corner said...

I love your outfit in your photo. I feel like you could wear whatever is in my kitchen cabinets and make it look cool. You have such a fascinating air about you. Girl crush.
I've been thinking about dying my hair purple and pink, and seeing Arabelle's hair was like a sign from heaven. Guess I'll be changing my hair again!

zoomslow said...

I remember in the past describing some of your outfits as kind of accessible, like I wouldn’t feel too intimidated to come over and have a chat with you… Maybe not so much in this case, especially with the gun! :-) BUT I do like your outfit, hair, lipstick and everything. For me the very best part is your witch on a broomstick jumper. I love this little touch of self-expression, which thanks to you I often adopt myself (with pride!) <3

Congratulations on your lovely performance. My Dad really likes Neil Young, and particularly “Heart of Gold” – so I’ll have to show him!

The ring you made is amazing. I’ve also started going crazy with the glue-gun, making lots of DIY jewellery. But I actually bought an interesting ring the other day…it’s got a kind of silvery metal band with a tiny teacup and saucer on it. I like ‘Alice in Wonderland’ a lot so I was happy to find it!

The dress you’re wearing in the photo that accompanies Claire Zulkey’s interview is enormously pretty!

Tatiana said...

Oh, your look is very beautiful and sofisticate!

lilbabyowl said...

Hi Tavi,

Could you tell me who makes the gun bag you borrowed in the photo?

Freya Alice Pickering said...

oh my god! i love those pastel blue shorts from mui mui and that whitch jumper is so cute! oh my god oh my god oh my god!!!

Style explosion said...

I'm from Russia, and we rarely see the young dandies, I also love fashion, I just adore her, I'm an artist and I love to do a variety of decorations combine different colors of clothing, Tavi, you're my idol, I love your style and your vzgyad on fashion .

Jamshaid Ayaz said...

.My daughter and I when to Doll House to buy a Sherri Lee dress that my daughter was obsessed with. I received no service from the sales staff until I asked. They gave my daughter a few styles to try on – when asked what size my daughter would be, she pointed at the dress my daughter had on and said “that size”. I noticed that the dresses had no size tags on them and when I asked the sales staff about that, they got frustrated with me and gave no explanation. So I left the store with a much deflated daughter, went home and ordered the dress online and saved $200.

Yoanna said...

Does MJ have a blog? shes cute and I didnt know about her. Much love
