rookie of the year

13 year-old Style Rookie blogger Tavi's upcoming cover for POP. When I was 13, I was wearing a Green Day Kerplunk t-shirt, Doc Martens, and a thrifted plaid shirt. Timely, perhaps, but not very inspired. I can't imagine imagine what kind of self-assurance it takes for a teenage girl to so freely experiment with clothing. I wish more young women were blessed with her sense of confidence and willingness to experiment, even if that means opening oneself up to the critiques of others.

Agreed. I can't even remember what I wore when I was 13, which means that it was so horrid I've erased it from my memory.
