Tavi Gevinson Quotes
Some of my clothes are things that we’d play dress up with when we were little, and it’s funny that now I’m wearing it like as an everyday thing. But if I say ‘vintage’ or ‘thrifted’ on the blog, there’s this community of fashion bloggers and I’ve become sort of tight with some of them, and we like just send each other packages. If I’m thrifting and I find this great dress but it won’t fit me and I won’t grow into it because I’m impossibly tiny, I don’t want to let it sit there. I’ll buy it and send it to a friend.
I did community theater and kids programs at professional theaters and plays at school and voice lessons for seven years. I stopped because it was so time-consuming. But then I realized that I had access to this world where I could go on auditions. And there wasn’t too much of an identity crisis when I started acting professionally because I had been acting longer than I had been writing. It didn’t feel new.

There are moments when I am really not happy with how I look, or I think it would be an easy way out to try and do the conventionally attractive thing. But part of it is that I don’t have the energy to put on, like, makeup. If people want to do that, that’s fine. But I’ve learned that it’s not for me.
