Typically Pinterest for me consists of a bunch of recipes I’ll never actually make, clothes I can’t afford and workouts I don’t really want to do. But then I found Tiffany’s Pinterest board: “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter” and basically Pinterest just got a whole lot cooler.
Tiffany’s board is basically comprised of repinned photos of ridiculously hip children wearing completely impractical clothing, hair styles and/or expressions. We’ve all seen plenty of those floating about on Pinterest (cue child posing apathetically against a chain link fence), but the best part are the captions that have sort of taken on a life of their own.
As you read the captions, you will unfold a story about a too-cool-for-school toddler girl named “Quinoa” and it’s basically a tongue in cheek look at kid’s fashion. I was dying over all the cute kids, but then you see the captions and you can’t help but laugh.
Some of my favorites included:
>>> (*Next to a photo of a girl in a massive coat and eye glasses): ”If you’re going to wear an oversized coat, wear oversized glasses to balance it out.” – Quinoa”
>>> (*Below a photo of two little girls in the desert posing next to a VW Van): “Quinoa and her BFF Chevron like to drive in vintage cars out to the desert, park them, and take a bunch of pictures looking pissed off.”
>>> (*Alongside a photo of a well-dressed girl holding a puppy): “The only thing Quinoa likes to rescue more than puppies are children that shop for clothes at Wal-Mart.”
>>> (*Below a photo of a girl wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses and a hipster beanie): “Sometimes Quinoa is too cool for school, so she doesn’t go. Wouldn’t be fair to the other kids.”
I wish I could post photos, because it’s way funnier with the photos, but getting the proper permissions was a nightmare. So basically, just go check out Quinoa’s…errr…I mean Tiffany’s Pinterest. It’ll be the best thing you’ve pinned in quite some time.
