Sounds familiar. We suffer from a case of closet wanderlust, too.

The Friday Follow

There’s a kid in all of us. Which is why we can’t resist double-tapping every single photo these fashionable, pint-sized cuties post.

1.  We fell head over heels for little Mayhem’s paper dresses weeks ago. So we obviously can’t stop guessing what @2sisters_angie will post next. 

2. At only five years old, @alonso_mateo already has more Gucci (and swagger) than us.

3. If only we could rock a topknot and aviators like @hails_world. One day, one day.

4. It’s safe to say @masonkjsmommy has mastered the art of layering. His cardigan collection is beyond enviable.

Yeah, that Photoshop luxe ain’t for us, either.

‪@Lauren_MacLeod: Also ChefHubby& I got married in Vegas by Elvis on 4/2. I’m pretty sure Dad thought the Elvis part was an April Fools joke until he saw him.
Come April 2, April Fools’ Day has left the building.

From search engines to fashion labels, some of today’s top companies celebrated April Fools’ Day by – what else? – posting a few online pranks. Below, a roundup of the gags that got us good.

1. lululemon’s Spray-On Yoga Pants
It appears lululemon has gone even sheerer. Inspired by a Jimmy Kimmel spoof commercial, the brand launched its first-ever spray-on yoga pant for April Fools’ Day.

2. Kayak.com Compares Hundreds of Bathrooms
Known for comparing travel packages, kayak.com created a limited-time tab on its site encouraging shoppers to “Find a place to go. Right now.” Users were even given the option to refine their search based on cleanliness. “Disgusting” earned a recurring reservation at a facility in NYC, while “impeccable” booked an extended stay at the Taj Mahal of toilets.

3. Bonobos’s Techstyle
This April Fools’ Day, Bonobos took wearable technology to a whole new level with “Wifiber,” a smart fabric that can do everything from read your body temperature to post your innermost feelings on an ex’s Facebook wall (whoops).

Could you use another holiday away from the office? Chances are, the answer is yes. Good news – Budweiser created a petition to make Opening Day a nationally recognized holiday. And it’s already reached the minimum threshold of 100,000 signatures required to receive a response from the White House.

According to Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, the campaign’s spokesperson, “The more than 100,000 people who signed the petition are just a fraction of the 1.3 million who will attend Opening Day games this year. The day is already an unofficial holiday, but now it’s time to make it official.”

We couldn’t agree more, Ozzie. Tell us, where do we sign?

Five days. Thirty-six tweets. Seventy-six thousand followers. That was the lifespan of @CondeElevator, a Twitter account formed for the sole purpose of reporting ludicrous, albeit hilarious, banter from inside the elevator at Condé Nast headquarters in New York. (See excerpts below.) The creator? One of their own – former GQ editor Lauren Bans, who revealed her identity in a spontaneous tweet last month. In an interview with GQ, Bans said, “I came home real drunk last night, read an article about the Goldman Sachs Elevator guy in the New York Times, and then impulsively tweeted my ‘coming out.'”

Let me fill you in: The day Bans sent her signing-off tweet to @CondeElevator for fear of jeopardizing her job, the anonymous @GSElevator account popped up, seemingly tweeting the same sort of gossip – only from the elevators at Goldman Sachs. Two and a half years later, @GSElevator comes out as finance expert John LeFevre, admits he was inspired by @CondeElevator, and signs a six figure book deal with Touchstone.
