I thought the purpose of a capsule wardrobe was to invest in fewer but higher quality pieces that can be mixed and matched so ones entire wardrobe has maybe 30 pieces in it total. How is a shopping spree every season and wearing only those outfits while your needs an entire room to itself wardrobe sits unused a capsule wardrobe? Maybe a capsule of HER wardrobe. The pieces she chose don’t even mix/match and they are not well fitting, quality items that will last several seasons. She even says she collects vintage dresses. Just be you, Elsie. Stop trying to jump on trends you don’t even understand. She’s such an idiot.

Ugh nope nope nope. I make a lot of hippie shit including most of my household cleaners. My roommate and I ‘made’ a very similar dish soap when we first moved in and I straight up stopped washing dishes to boycott it. It doesn’t make suds, smells weird (yes even with essential oils) and leaves a film— basically, it doesn’t clean your dishes.

They make so many eco-friendly, refillable dish soaps now this diy is absolutely pointless.

I'm a forever lurker chair but Elsie's latest instagram post of a "Nova fashion show" has me worried for her expectations. My cousin was adopted when she was 4. Her adoptive parents were informed that her background was traumatic and she would require therapy even at that young age. They took that very seriously and she had therapists, tutors, and support groups ready as soon as she came home with them. Even so, the adjustment was HARD on everyone. They too focused on making memories and instilling family traditions but for YEARS it was a challenge. Despite everything her parents knew going in, they still had moments of "I thought we'd be a perfect family by now" or resentment. My cousin didn't have any physical disabilities or a language barrier, like little Nova does. Now, as a teen (she's so sweet and talented and goofy) she knows her history and recognizes that her parents struggled and feels guilty. I'm not snarking when I say that the excitement and joy should be tempered with preparedness and patience for the good of everyone involved.

Oof. Yeah that ~fashion show~ .. … dead

Elsie is delusional (she is SO EXCITED to make crafts with her for Christmas! No time to adjust, human-doll, Elsie needs to make ~*memorygoals*~ for the gram starting YESTERDAY!!!) but Jeremy does seem a lot more realistic about the whole thing. He posted her photo and a very sweet caption pre-thanking the folks who have been taking care of her and keeping her happy, and apologizing to nova for the really confusing and difficult transition to their home she’ll soon face.
I mean, it’s the internet of course, but quite a difference from insta-storying the ridiculous sunglass collection for the 5738373947 time..

Elsie’s kind of freaking me out.

I just have this mental image of her chasing and cornering the kid with sponsored clothing. (“Tradishuuuuuuns!”) If you want to be a mom—not have mom content on instagram—there should be so many other things on your mind. The child may outgrow half of that before feeling comfortable and interested in a fashion show. Instagramming kid clothing should be so, so far down the list right now. Not the literal only thing she has planned for her prop.

Someone has been frothing over that Zooey in the city and Fancytreehouse’s kid blogs. Step away, Elsie. Please realize you child will have to learn to just BE all over again and that process needs to come before IG likes.

Honest question. I'm not from the US and over here, when people adopt, they are encouraged to share nothing (or as less as possible) about their child on social media / internet in general. Because of the child's privacy etc. I have friends who have adopted their son and when we've been together at a party or something we always check pictures before we put them up on facebook to share (to make sure their son is not in the pics). Is that "rule" not in place in the US? Because it baffles me how much is allready on social media.

Foster kids are not allowed on social media. I believe the adoptive parents have the rights to post whatever, though, I’m afraid. Elsie posted about sharing Nova in her sosh meeds on the Larson blog, but…the post was all about Elsie, not about what is right for Nova’s life. This transition should be very interesting and I expect it will try Elsie and Jeremy’s relationship greatly given Elsie’s narcissism.

Can you believe Elsie has considered the privacy of her child!? That post was so tone deaf. Privacy doesn't start when Nova gets here FFS. The world already knows her medical conditions, her entire wardrobe, her bedroom, etc. Her entire adoption process has been hashtagged. It's easy to find where they live online and the layout of their home is everywhere. Privacy? lmao They know her dad wasn't sure about her. They know her mom is obsessed with frills and sunglasses and traditions. Elsie says she'll only share 1%, but when you're a public blogger, that's still too much. So much is already out there. sfun_deadhorse

Seriously. This whole thing is making me more and more concerned. It's probably the way she's writing about her followers, like on her personal blog "We can feel how loved by my internet friends and followers already… fiercely loved! Which is so great… but also so strange because I hope it’s what she would want."

 

What?! What 2 year old would want / have an opinion about that? Elsie is supposed to be the parent! Part of parenting is protecting your children. Even imagine a 2 year old being accosted on the street by a squee-ing fan-girl. 

 

The whole thing has just become pretty gross really. An exercise in consumerism.

Do we think Elsie will be using Nova as a child model for her future inevitable kid-products? She’s probably already planning. Need to recoup the adoption costs.
