When our daughter Cassie was younger, she carried her insulin pump in a teeny, tiny, little purse. We had about a dozen mini pocketbooks in all shapes and colors. Different ones to match different outfits. It gave us a great way to make having a pump a little bit more fun, and it gave Cassie a way to glam up diabetes.
Today, I stumbled across a very cool site for a dad (or mom) who wants to give his little girl another way to make a diabetes fashion statement: Too Sweet Boutique makes sassy, fun and hip (pardon the pun) pump pouches that are stunning. Amy, the mom behind Too Sweet Boutique, is on a mission to make wearing an insulin pump as cute, comfortable and convenient as possible. Some of her selections can also let you stuff a CGM in there or even a meter.
Like the red carpet at the Oscars, the Friends For Life 2010 conference did a "who are you wearing?" interview(below). Still think girls with diabetes aren't fashion conscious?
BTW, I don't recommend anything I don't really like so please don't jam up my inbox asking me to shill any diabetes stuff. In fact, I don't take sponsorship money or advertising on this blog. Sorry- that's just the way I roll.
