My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter

 

Screen grab of Pinterest page

You may have met Quinoa. She’s been spotted in London, Hollywood, Seattle, Chicago, and Miami. You may have even seen her in your home town.

Tiffany Beveridge—wife, mother, freelance writer, aspiring novelist, maker of incredible cookies, kitchen dancer, clothes horse, funny in person, funnier in print, middle child—has created a Pinterest board that excels at pure entertainment. “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter” introduces us to the fictional Quinoa and her equally fictitious friends. Toddlers and tweens, boys and girls, all share in the chance to be dubbed Quinoa for 15 minutes of fame on Pinterest. Populated with images of sultry children in fashion garb, divas with glitter, and disinterested young hipsters, the board features Beveridge’s sarcastic wit shining through with each description.

Everything went fine at Quinoa’s playdate with Booker until she realized that when he said he loved vinyl, he meant jackets not vintage records.

Know what really gets Quinoa down in the dumps? Pleather.

When Quinoa wears her chevron maxi, she opens a portal in the trendy space/time continuum and can travel to any fashion trend in history.

The page is a most excellent diversion, though I have to point out that many of the pins go to uncredited images or bad links.
