I can’t remember where my love for fashion stems from, but it is here to stay and it isn’t going away anytime soon, and probably not ever. That being said, I’m way too excited to be an Uncle and welcome my first niece or nephew this November. I’m not buying baby clothes because my sister, Carin, does not want to know the sex of the baby. Her belief is that we don’t have many pleasant surprises in life, and this should be one of them. My sister is in her third trimester and looking great, if I do say so myself.
A little backstory before I get into the meat and potatoes of this post. Carin and her husband, David, recently came back from Aruba where his brother, Jordan, got married. This picture below is of his side of the family.

My sister is wearing a vintage dress that was previously worn by my Aunt to my Mothers wedding back in the late 70’s. The fascinator, designed by Philip Treacy, was my idea. When I saw the fuchsia against the emerald green, I knew these two pieces needed a moment to shine.
A few weeks ago I was teasing myself and decided to visit the layette section at Nordstrom. I found this amazing two peice cashmere outfit in grey, a perfect gender neutral color. I thought to myself that it will be pretty big deal, at least in my opinion, to give the baby his or her first outfit, and given my love for the finer things, coming home in cashmere is the only way to roll out of the hospital and into this crazy crazy world.
