The ‘Fashion Kids’ Of Instagram Is Making My Own Kid Look Like A Slob
I’m so so very conflicted about this Fashion Kids of Instagram account. On one hand, there is something so creepily Quinoa about these kids, who are wearing clothing that costs more than what my monthly utility bill costs. On the other hand, ZOMG FREAKIN’ ADORABLE KIDS AND HOLY HELL I HAVE TO START BUYING MY OWN DAUGHTER MORE HANDBAGS. I love children’s clothing. It’s fun to buy your kid cute things and dress them up and take pics of them. It’s so.much.fun.
But on the other hand, looking at these terribly chic bebes makes me all sorts of sad because where are the frayed hems and grass-stained knees that indicate a child has ran around and kicked some balls and caught some fireflies? Where are the dirty shirts that indicate a child enjoyed some damn ice cream? I suppose parents don’t post these photos online, but all of this makes me want to start a UNFASHIONABLE KIDS of instagram account and show, you know, kids being kids, wearing beloved hand-me-downs and having bandaid-adorned appendages and burrs stuck in their hair. But these kids sure are cute, and all of this is making me wish I had more babies to dress.
I’m so not worthy. I need to go put on my super fancy not ripped yoga pants now.
