If you’re big into blogging or fashion, you’ve probably heard of Tavi Gevinson.
This girl’s style, blog and new online magazine are revered throughout the fashion world. She gets personal invites to New York Fashion Week. Her originality and creativity are pretty much mind-blowing. She’s the definition of cool.
But there are two especially crazy/interesting things about her:
1. She lives in Oak Park, IL (where I was an infant resident for the first 8 months of my life).
2. She’s 15 years old. FIFTEEN! And girlfriend already has her own Wikipedia page.
To put it in perspective, when I was 15, my life pretty much consisted of watching Dawson’s Creek and scraping gum off my retainer. Often simultaneously. (I’ve always been good at multi-tasking!)
So Miss Gevinson, you have my complete respect. As well as sincere jealously because I seriously want your life.
P.S. All the cool kids are from Oak Park. (Um hello – Frank Lloyd Wright, Ernest Hemingway, Kathy Griffin, Bob Newhart, Ludacris, Betty White?! Need I say more?)
