Who is Tavi Gevinson?

To sum up Tavi Gevinson in a formula; it would be “Young + Unisex + Experimental.”
Young – Tavi is only 13 years old, but she has already developed her own unique fashion sense and style, having an outstanding identity as a young fashion blogger in America. (Her Blog Style rookie has over 50,000 readers and the popularity is growing each day)
Unisex – Tavi has very balanced features, is a girl but looks like a boy. She can wear whatever she wants and still look good in them effortlessly, be it edgy or girly. Just because she has a 13 year old body (well, so does Brayanboy :)), she is exactly what all those skinny models want to look like, yet, Tavi doesn’t need to starve herself for having it, and I can see more and more designers will want her to be in their shows in the future 😉
Experimental- She would throw on really strange pieces of clothes together to create the special look. Although, I would say they are either hit or miss at this stage, still, she is absolutely talented. (Probably due to her wardrobe is limited to her parent’s closet or the second-hand clothes shop down the road?)
All of the above + her artistic view/ photography talent at this very young age (which cannot be calculated in a formula for sure) makes us want more. I mean, people who are craving for refreshing characters in the fashion world would totally choose to read her stuffs more than Anna Wintour right? 😀

 

Many of us would say, “Oh, she reminds me of my childhood; I used to be just like her when I was a kid.” As we get older, we have forgotten what it is like to be creative, so it seems that what Tavi does give us a place to fantasize about being young again. People nowadays need constant stimulation and objects and things to believe in (yes, we need hope in the world). So, a young little girl who is very clear about what she wants and is fearless to express herself will surely be something worth talking about or look up to.
Anyways, who’s stopping you or me from being fearless and creative?

Lindsay Lohan 6126 leggings

I think a few days ago when Lindasay Lohan launched her leggings line in Beverley Hills, it was causing a chaos or something. A lot of people “cryticise” the design and style saying its shit and her being a designer is also shit, etc, etc. But hey, you think it wont sell just because of some negative noise buzzing around? Nah, they will sell anyway, as Miss Lilo has so many fans out there and yes, she still look very good as a crazy woman.

Her line is now available exclusively on one of my fav online stores revolve clothing.

After talking some mediocre “design”, here, we have something more creative and fun to look at – Marios scarf leggings. Available here.

The world is fair, we wont let our men feel left out, you can give him a nice surprise for halloween by buying him some mantyhose. Get a pair and accessorise your man!

Stirrup/ Jeggings

In case you are wondering how to name those pants with elastic bands that loop around the arches of your foot, they are called the stirrup pants. Stirrup pants were very popular in the late 70s to the early 90s, usually being worn with broader shouldered clothes.

For girls who have a curvier figure, they might not be able to wear bright color, pattern leggings like the slim girls do ( or like La Roux here). As leggings are body hugging and they cut off right above your ankles, which makes the legs look shorter, which, also means not very flattering to wear.

Good news is, since the 80s trend is still going strong this winter towards the rocker look, stirrup leggings/jeans are also making their come back. You can now see some of them available from the high street fashion brands like top shop or Miss Selfridge.

I think they are absolutely brilliant as a little elastic band can make a huge difference, they stretches to the bottom of your foot so that its less body hugging, hiding the bumps or extra curves on the calves and also elongate the appearance of legs. Pairing with a padded shoulder jacket and some studded accessories, you are ready to rock and roll 😉 (Who says curvy girls cannot look raw?)

On a side note: Leggings that are using thicker denim material like jeans are called the Jeggings, I find it hilarious as I believe this is a new term that are being used nowadays.

Aesa Space Candy

AESA Space Candy Silk Fade Out in Fuchsia/Turquoise, Black/Gold

“Brooklyn native Randi Mates is the designer behind the New York-based jewelry line Aesa, (the name means ‘personification of destiny’ in Ancient Greek). Formally a historian, Mates began training as a classical Greek and Roman metalsmith in 2005 and Aesa jewelry was born in late 2006 ”


Quoted from revolve clothing which is carrying some pieces from the designer’s creative jewelry line, including this classic look necklace which goes with many different outfits! You can wear it with your grey suit to work, your white dress for a night out or simply just jeans and a Tee and it will stand out and compliment your overall look of the day.

My personal choice would be this Fuschia/Tuquoise color though. The color combination is very in now as the 80s were back last few seasons and will linger on for a while longer. It is also inexpensive compare to the other similar style out there.Unfortunately it is now sold out and all I can do is dream about it and check out their new seasons goodies. 🙂
