My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter: Our Favorite Pinterest Board
We’re the first to admit that we’re addicted to Pinterest: It’s our perfect fantasy lifestyle-porn site, and it lets us wile away the hours living out our champagne dreams on our beer budget.
And even though the “super popular with the mom set” website is a wonderful way to spend time, sometimes all that perfection can be a bit overwhelming. The thought that everyone on earth has a perfectly styled refrigerator and is handy with a glue gun can sometimes be a point of real stress.
That’s exactly why we love the satirical Pinterest board, “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter.” The imaginary daughter is a fierce fashionista who goes by the name Quinoa. Yes, Quinoa. She favors Chanel and hangs out with her BFFs Chevron and Ridley in exotic locations.
It’s the captions, however, that really make us laugh, like this one, “Mary had a little lamb, but Quinoa has a better little lamb. And better hair accessories. And more friends. Who's calling the shots now, huh, Mary?” Who, indeed?
The board is the brainchild of Tiffany Beveridge, a normal mother of two boys who says her sons “couldn’t care less about what they wear." Tiffany, a freelance copywriter and blogger in Philadelphia, first started the board to channel her love of cute little girl stuff. Her Pinterest research then led her to find the over-the-top images she uses today. As she says, “I mean, come on, if I’m going to spend time dressing an imaginary daughter on Pinterest, why not go all the way?”
She’s even started a mini-trend of her own, with a bunch of copycat pinners loving the idea and running with it, too. We’re all for having more fun and stressing less.
