Members of the Park Slope Parents community may remember a posting a few weeks ago by one Courtney W., a transplanted California mom who railed against the dowdy winter uniform of the typical Park Slope mom. Courtney herself prefers over-the-knee Prada boots, Alexander Wang cowl necks and J. Mendel furs to North Face sleeping-bag coats and Nepalese mittens.
For the most part, the PSP hive mind did not appreciate her fashion critique. Responses mainly accused her of insensitivity to the plight of Haitians and general superficiality (um, duh). One used her post to ignite a circumcision debate. (Who is that dude on the listserv who manages to turn every debate back to his missing foreskin??? He won’t be satisfied until everybody in Brooklyn has spent at least five minutes contemplating his penis.) We got in touch with Courtney and told her to launch a blog called Fabulous in Park Slope. For some reason, she listened! FAPS isn’t the usual Brokelyn fare—her kid’s named Cash and from the sounds of things he has plenty of company around the W. household—but here it is.
