"why i hate fashion" | the ultimate rebuttal


source: google images

If you've never heard of the 13-year old blogging sensation Tavi, or if you've never read her blog Style Rookie, then you've yet to experience fashion blogging at its absolute finest. Since I first heard about her a year ago I've been following her blog with daily anticipation, sitting on the edge of my seat taking in the witty roller-coaster of each post. Yes, I suggest reading back through her last however many posts you can manage to read in one sitting. Yes, I urge you to truly contemplate her fashion choices (ie the photo above, taken by an editor of Tavi's hat at the Christian Dior show). But the reason I am posting about her today is because of her fantastic rebuttal to Tanya Gold's article entitled "Why I Hate Fashion". Whether you can't live without fashion, couldn't care less about what you put on before you walk out the door, or simply can't stand the hype around models/designer runway shows, read Tavi's post!!! She suggests that you first read Ms. Gold's article before reading her post, advice well-received. Click here for the direct link to the post, which also shows the 238 comments she has already acquired in support of her argument.

You go, girl.

I'm not a fan of Tavi's personal style, but I do check her blog and admit that the rebuttal was very well written!
