I just saw this via The Cut.
Before I rant about that, I have to mention Tavi. Okay, so I like Tavi. You already know this. I don’t care that she’s 13, I think she’s a really good writer – super clever, funny, etc etc. That’s why I like her. So her age is a little bit of a novelty perhaps, but I really do think if she was older I’d like her just the same, and I’d still subscribe to her blog.
5 year-old ‘Katie‘ however, I am not down with. She’s FIVE for god’s sake! I mean, how eloquent and informative is this?:
“For me, it’s really all about Love, Hate, or Like. I liked the messy hair. Some of the models had really messy hair. I liked the gold metal top and the colors. Some of the models came out twice in different outfits.”
I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be rude, or mean – she is very cute and I know she’s only five, but this kills me. And when I say kills me, I mean it in the bad way. The child-blogger-novelty thing is out of control ridiculous. Look at this photo of her ‘detailed notes’ (below):
I had never heard of Racked before today, and I just can’t tell if they’re taking the piss with this 5 year old or not. I just can’t tell. I just don’t know anything anymore.
Note: My work computer got stolen this weekend so I’m already in a bad mood incase you can’t tell. Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and decide I like the idea of people 1/5 my age going to NYFW and blogging. It’s possible, but highly doubtful.
