Babe in Black
So I've been thinkin' a lot about babies.
Yes, I've been grappling with the pressure and possibility of taming my wild life to make room for a family soon (not because I'm necessarily ready right now, but because if I wait too much longer I'm told I may not have a choice). Even with all the loud rock shows I go to, it's the tick tock of the ol' repro clock has been blaring in this married 30-something's ears most lately.
When (and if) I do have a kid it will be one well-frocked li'l femme/fella though. I just know I wont be able to resist styling him/her up in groovy outfits. What fashionable gal hasn't thought about it, right?
The line combines retro-ish images and witty slogans in a unique un-baby-ish, but not tastless way. "Hand Over the Tit and Nobody Gets Hurt" is particularly popular. They recently got the license for goth nymph character du jour Emily the Strange (see pic) and company head Michele V just emailed to tell me that this lil number was seen on none other than Zahara Jolie-Pitt. No photos of the tyke actually wearing the tee were available though... guess the message worked. Wish they had one in my size. I'd wear it every time a doctor/parent/pal asked me when I'm gonna get pregnant.
