Unfortunately, my Preppy Handbook is in New York, so I'm unable to confirm if the upcoming Izod Lacoste edition Maclaren stroller is all-new, or a reissue of a vintage 80's model.
I considered not posting at all, because the press release says "EDITORS EMBARGO UNTIL OCTOBER" or somesuch. But I figured if the fine folks at Mac would like to involve DT in their marketing, there's a blogads button right > over > there. Besides, they already drove the rig around in public at ABC Kids Expo a few weeks ago [in oh-so-preppy Las Vegas]. And it was in the trade press almost a month ago. AND Cookie Magazine, so whatever. This is how [some of] your stroller news is made, people!
For what it's worth, I do feel tacky talking about money, though: at $400, it's either $100 or $180 more than the comparable non-Izod stroller. But then isn't that exactly the "a horse is a horse" logic your mom had when she bought that Stafford Collection shirt for you at Penney's? And how'd that turn out, hmm?
Parenting is like sixth grade, just with your own money this time.
