I've always wanted a tattoo. I've always seen myself as a tight black jean wearing, dark eyelinered, messy long haired, tattooed rocker chick. You know - the kind that wears cool vintage rocker Tees from concerts she actually attended. And she knows the band. Not in the skeevy groupie way but in sang-with-the-band way. In reality....long hair? Check. Dark eyeliner? Only sometimes. Black jeans? Nope. Tattoo? Nope. And my singing-with-the-band experience consists of one shakey rendition of "Brown Eyed Girl" on my 21st birthday. But still, even with my c-section scar and my breastfeeding boobs, I cling to the image of me as rock-star.
However, nothing sabotages my inner rock-star faster than carrying around a bunch of cutesy baby crap. Blankets with puppies, kittens or bunnies are nice, but you just can't get no satisfaction from a cutsey-woosty baby blanket draped across your stroller. Enter Oshie Vintage - a line of rock-star worthy baby blankets that are perfect for adding a little R-O-C-K to your afternoon walk in the park. The feel of the blankets is like that old vintage concert T-shirt I've always wanted: super soft 100% cotton that gets softer with each wash. My favorite is the slighlty tie-dyed "Drooling Stones" blanket, but her "Binky Floyd" or her "Woodstork" also rock. Best of all, they are currently on sale for $49 (down from $75). And free shipping to boot. So go stroll on with your bad self.
