A baby who is forced to become trendy by its urban hipster parents. More and more boutiques in upscale neighborhoods cater to these parents, stuck in 1/3-life crisis, who buy their baby clothes and accessories that are essentially scaled-down versions of the Hot Topic product line. It's a way for young moms to live the party life vicariously through their child, 16 years before that child will be allowed to party.
I don't know what's more disturbing: that the 35-year old mom in Starbucks is wearing a babydoll shirt that says "Sex Kitten"... or that her cribster is wearing the same thing.
