i just discovered tavi a few months ago and was taken away by her style and her outtake on the world.
she started going to fashion week when she was only 13, and now has a online magazine called Rookie. so once again i say HAPPY BIRTHDAY OH INSPIRING ONE!

outfit post: blue tights and long dresses

hello dear ones.
as some of you may know i go to a very small school.
theres only 6 people in my class.. and most of us are like siblings. so most of the time when I wear a fun vintage looking outfit i will get some kind of funny criticism. today's was:
katie, you look you're a sunday school teacher from the 1950's. and well ill take that as a compliment.
