Maybe it’s the Aquarian in me, but I’ve never considered myself to be conventional. I like different. I cherish weird. Thankfully I found a partner that not only supports these qualities but embodies them himself. A perfect little quirky match made in the stars.
So when we became blessed with the news that in April 2018 we’d officially become parents, I knew we couldn’t share perhaps the biggest announcement of our lives in an average way. It had to be unique. Us.
So I donned an evening gown and stiletto boots. The hubby threw on his best Yohji. And we art directed a photoshoot. In a laundromat. Because, why not? If there’s one thing we love, it’s stepping out of the box. And this next chapter of our lives will be stepping outside of the box in ways we can’t yet fathom.
Here’s to the wild ride ahead of us. He’s going to be a rad dad. Me? Well, all I can tell you is that I’m going to continue to bring you style inspiration the only way I know how. As myself. In my little corner of the internet. While I grow a tiny human that I’m super excited to meet.
At some point the clothes will get bigger. And while there might be a tiny shoe or two, In Spades will remain a women’s fashion blog. I’ve already figured out my next style icon: Andre Leon Talley. Expect lots of cloaking.
Let the adventure begin!
