Most adults would be put off and insulted if someone compared them to a 14 year old. But a friend of mine recently turned me on to Tavi, a 14 year-old New Yorker and her blog Style Rookie.
She said this little munchkin reminded her of me.
Well, I have to say I was honored. If only I could live up to how stylish Tavi is, at 14 or even now at thirty ehem….. In 8th grade I hadn’t dreamt of starting a blog (well, that’s because they hadn’t been invented yet). But even so, I was completely perplexed the one time I looked through a Vogue and discovered haute couture. For me, a pair of keds and perhaps some acid washed guess jeans were higher on my covet list than Jimmy Choo’s, Marni, or Prada.
