Oh, Pinterest. Our love affair with you was hard-felt, but unfortunately short-lived. Pinned beauty trends quickly turned into cosmetic fails, workout regimes became work out dreams, and the disappointment in recreating your "simple" recipes had taken its toll.
We had all but given up on you...
...Until we discovered the mother of all satirical Pinterest boards.

My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter is a Pinterest board created by user Tiffany Beveridge that documents the high-class catalogue-clipping encounters of her imaginary daughter Quinoa -- because if Gwyneth Paltrow can name her children Apple and Moses, then, yeah, any grain-based name is completely fair game in this parody of pretentious youngsters.
With more than 8,000 followers and 154 pins, My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter provides at least an hour of workday distraction. Using other imaginary child character names such as Chevron, Ridley, and Barcelona, Beveridge provides comical captions under seemingly innocent photos of child models, making critical jabs at stereotypical upper class gushing.
Unfortunately for Beveridge and her nonexistent daughter, Quinoa, the 1 percent will probably never lay eyes on My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter because unlike the rest of us penny-pinching dreamers, rich people don't need Pinterest. They have money.
