imogene + willie, the selvedge denim darlings of the Nashville instagram hipster set, seems to be having some problems with their finances. Investors accuse the Eddmensons of using company money to “support a lavish lifestyle of personal indulgence” rather than “developing a wholesale business”.
In court papers, Celia Hughes, Imogene + Willie’s former chief financial officer, said the company’s accounting books contained many “red flags.”…She cited a $10,000 motorcycle, spa trips and home renovations such as a new bath, doors, furnishings and window treatments as examples of the Eddmensons’ mismanagement of company funds.
Matt Eddmenson’s personal instagram does feature a lot of motorcycles, so who knows. Anyway, apparently the latest financial statements show “61 percent of Imogene + Willie’s roughly $224,000 in bills are 90 days past due” and Robert Lamey and Paige Heid, the largest creditors of the company, are trying to force the company into chapter 11 bankruptcy ”using an involuntary petition”.
So maybe pretty soon Jordana and Bleubird will have to find a new brand of status jeans run by a new hipster couple they can glom onto and instagram tag.
Aunt Becky, medical marvel, evidently didn’t raise enough from her GoFundMe to get another apartment. She’s now on twitter railing against the friends who ghosted on her when she wound up homeless.
Surely she can just arrange another medical problem and get another few months’ stay at a hospital?
Glennon Doyle Melton, bruti-full-of-it, posted this weekend about a new special friend.
And here is the interesting thing about how I feel introducing her to you here, about bringing my new beloved friend to this space. I feel nervous. I feel so protective of her. Because sometimes it feels like we have guidelines for how we respect each other but we throw them right out the window when it comes to celebrities…I want my friend to be safe here with us just like you are safe here with us.
To honor that protective feeling Glennon wrote a long detailed essay about her “new friend”. Her “new friend’s name is Oprah”, and they didn’t just record a segment for Oprah’s television channel. They have been “corresponding a bit” via email. They “make each other laugh” and call each other “God’s Girl”. She has a celebrity friend, and she will be protective of that celebrity friend by telling you about the decor of her celebrity friend’s home and tell you about their family dinner, about how they “prayed together”.
Let us all praise Saint Lap for her discretion and class in protecting her celebrity friend. You see, “Names are so important.” Especially when they’re worthy of being dropped to increase your own brand’s profile.
Megan, ‘skinny’, loves to document her every breath via Periscope and snapchat. This includes snapchatting her children dancing around unbuckled in what seems to be a moving vehicle.
She is SkinnyMeg31 on snapchat and as of now the snap is still viewable in her story. In several successive snaps the kids are dancing and singing in a vehicle that seems to be moving through what looks like a suburban neighborhood. Meg also appears to be driving the vehicle.
Seriously, why do bloggers keep doing this?
I guess the headline says it all, but Jessica Quirk, still managing to keep her What I Wore blog limping along, has announced she is indeed squirked up with a tiny female human.
I’m so excited to share some fun news with you! Our growing family is excited to announce we have a baby girl on the way! We are thrilled! This pregnancy has been so different from my first so I had a hunch we’d be adding a daughter to our crew. I even started a baby quilt for her room a few weeks before I knew for sure!
Misusing the word ‘gender’ just like every other blogger who wants a reason to instagram a pink or blue cake, Messica makes sure we know Squirk 1.0 is thrilled about being dethroned by the long awaited Mini-Messi.
We’ve had a name picked out since before our first was born, so now we just need to narrow down a middle name. Knowing her gender has done a lot for me and pregnancy bonding and it’s so fun to say ‘she’ and to prep Felix for his little sister. Last night in his sleep he reached over to my stomach and said BABY!
Sure. Why not.
Anyway, I’m sure 99% of you don’t give a toss about Messica’s uterine contents but I think we can all agree poor Kins needed to stop being at the top of the page. So just pretend this is ‘news’ and then feel free to comment ‘who?’ and ‘no1curr’ so poor Fat Naked Baby can fade from top post.
Tiffany, the wooooorst, is taking her instagram stage momming to a new level. She posted new special pictures today and Kinsley’s fans went wild.
This type of thing has been going on for a while with this instagram mom, so I’m not sure what she thought she was doing posting nudes of her daughter. But as she’s said in the past, she will post what she wants.
I never thought I would see the day.
After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week…Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets.
Evidently Gawker.com is dunzo, and the staffers are being dispersed to “other editorial roles, either at one of the other six sites or elsewhere within Univision”.
