Hey Natalie Jean Knows How To Do Minimalism

Natalie Holbrook, she’s from Brooklyn, has been trying to make a minimalist ‘capsule’ wardrobe thing happen. She apparently thinks a pared down wardrobe collection will…honestly I’m not sure why she’s doing it, other than maybe an excuse to shove some rstyle links up our noses.

But don’t you dare think for one second that it should be easy for a stay at home wife married to a six figure salary of a man to figure out which items should be included in her amazing minimalist hanging-on-display collection.

My problem isn’t in simplifying a look, it’s in simplifying my options. I like this red plaid shirt, but I also like this red plaid shirt! And which one will I want to wear the most? And what would that preference that even say about a person?

Her final list of choices adds up to almost $5,000 and includes a $175 striped tee and a $250 red plaid shirt, which should pair nicely with the free extra pair of boots she received the other day. Because heaven knows you need at least 10 pairs of black boots.

Don’t even get me started on the boots. I love these black boots, but I also love these black boots, and I don’t need both but they’re just sooo different though!

Bored rich white ladies – they’re just like us!

Bleubird Will Just SWF Everyone

Bleubird, instagram copycat extraordinaire, is still copycatting on instagram.


It looks like after single white female-ing Drew Barrymore and Taza, James has moved on to Denise. Creeper alert! Why can’t she come up with her own instagram ideas already?

Feminst Breeder Wants To Know How You Found Her Address

The Feminist Breeder, strong black woman, let her son run off during a tantrum.

Jules got mad because Jolene drank his juice so he ran away. Like for real, ran away. The cops came to our door because someone found him a mile away at the AutoZone. We thought he had just gone to our neighbor’s house.

She was apparently unaware of her son’s whereabouts until the police showed up at her door. Saying “I mean, he’s 6. It’s not like my 3 yr old wandered off”, she explained it wasn’t her son’s disappearance that upset her; she was more concerned with how the police figured out how to contact her.


She went on to say “Apparently the police basically only needed my son’s first name to find out my cell phone number and our address. That’s probably scarier than anything else that happened today.”

Maybe it’s just me, but if my child had run off to a store and had to be returned by the police, the last thing on my mind would be “omg how did you find my address!!11″ I’d probably just be glad nothing bad happened, not going on about how insecure I feel about my personal information.

Ramshackle Glam Will Move To California

Jordan Reid, ice cream outfit stylist, has announced she and her Glamily will be moving out to the land of Ebay.

We’re moving to California, to San Francisco’s South Bay. For good, this time.

When Kendrick’s internship ended, his company made him a post-graduation job offer, and last week he accepted. And so next spring he will graduate, and we will pack up everything we own, and then we will pile our dogs and our kids into a rented RV…And when the drive comes to an end, we’ll pull into the driveway of some as-yet-unknown house or apartment, and we’ll start a whole new life in a whole new place.

Though they recently purchased a home in Westchester County – a move rumored to have been based on Jordan’s hopes of an HGTV style renovation/makeover show – she says the decision to move was obvious because the 8 weeks they spent in California this summer were “like magic, like we were living in a bubble of joy and adventure”.

She and Kenny then apparently got tattoos to celebrate the decision, I assume because tats are currently trending in NYC.

Young House Love Sort Of Closing The Blog For A While

After returning from their month long break, Young House Love has announced they will be moving on from the blog.

[W]e’re immensely thankful not only for your support and kind comments, but also for helping put words to some of the things that we had been feeling for some time. And while the last month hasn’t been enough time to fill in all of the blanks about our future (heck, when are life’s blanks ever clearly filled in?) it has made one thing pretty obvious to us: after seven awesome years of sharing our home and our life, it’s time for our next adventure.

They left the window open to return to YHL (so start begging really hard, fangirls!) by saying they “won’t go as far as to declare this the end of Young House Love or our blogging days”, and hinting they may come back when the kids are in school.
