Teach Me How To Quinoa (Book Giveaway)

There are few things that make my imaginary daughter Quinoa more discouraged than seeing people who refuse to live up to their potential. It seems everywhere she looks she observes adults and children alike settling for things like Crocs, fanny packs, and pre-packaged club sandwiches from the gas station. Sure, not everyone can turn their name into a verb before their kindergarten orientation as Quinoa has done, but is it too much to ask that they know the difference between jacquard and damask? Charcuterie and antipasti? Pitchfork and Pandora? It’s almost as if adults think that childhood should be a carefree period of discovery and wonder instead of the dystopian winner-takes-all melee that it is? More »

10 Troublesome Comments From The Christian 'Modest Is Hottest' Teen Series

The self-proclaimed “largest community of Christian teen girls on the web!” otherwise known as Project Inspired has a wealth of material for that exact cohort. With beauty tips, polls, books, and advice columns, at first glance the site seems like any other teen girl digital haven. But the site’s “Modest Is Hottest” series, in which staff highlight “modest” gowns on various red carpets as well as “makeover” a celeb lady who transgresses, make for more troublesome reads — and I’m not talking about the copy in the articles. I’m talking about all the crazy double standard, victim-blamy logic that is happening among young girls in the comment threads, all conducted behind the shield of Modesty. More »

The Unfashionable Kids Of Instagram

The Unfashionable Kids Of Instagram

The “Fashion Kids” of Instagram sure are fancy with their swanky boho looks and satchel purses and tiny belts.  While the novelty of perfectly coiffed toddler hair is heartstring tuggy, a certain artificiality in those photos is nevertheless concerning. I echo my associate editor Eve Vawter when I say that the adorable images make me yearn for snaps of kids just doing kids stuff, with some “chic” chocolate stains on their mouths and some “in season” dirt covering their hands. Kids have their entire adult lives to worry about matchy outfits and how they cut a figure in a mini skirt. But they only have these years to pull off dirt under their fingernails and chalk on their arms as perfect accessories.

Help Me Decide If I'm The Worst Mother Ever By Making My Daughter Wear This Dress To School

Now, I am her mom and I should be able to get all MOM on her and say this is what I want her to wear and considering she lived inside of me for over nine months and I let her live in my house and eat all my food plus use my stupid eight dollar a bottle Essie nail polish she should do what I say. And I know if I insisted she wear the dress she would, she is a pretty agreeable kid. And it isn’t like she is pitching a fit and saying she hates the dress.

Easter Dresses Bring Out The Very Worst In Little Girl 'Kiddie Fashion'

This past weekend, my mother-in-law and I made our annual trip to the department store with my daughter in tow, ready to pick out the perfect Easter Dress. I knew that it was going to be difficult to balance my conservative MIL’s love of traditional, girly modesty and my daughter’s love of anything a girl in a Disney sitcom might wear. I was prepared to play moderator between the two extremes. But I had no idea just how awful the “kiddie fashion” was for Easter dresses. More »

Adele Took Her Baby Who Has No Name Shopping In Los Angeles, Breaking News: No Name Has Legs

So Adele, who is slated to show up at the Golden Globes tonight took her baby No Name out shopping for baby stuff and we all still don’t know his name yet. And although I think it’s super cool that Adele is being so protective of her son that none of us knows his name yet, I find it kind of weird that she is so protective and secretive about him that she would drag him out in Los Angeles, also known as The Paparazzi Pit From Hell More »
