Cool suit.
I got it at a vintage boutique in John Waters’s Baltimore stomping grounds.

Do you wear suits often?
I’m a fan. It’s a quick way to achieve a polished look. I juggle a lot of things: I work full time, and I have five young children, so it’s one less thing to think about.

Whoa. Five?
Yeah, our oldest is 9, and our youngest is 1. My husband and I, we’re both natural multitaskers and just kind of like … we just go with the flow.

Are you considering a sixth?
You know, we’ve never really had a “number.” But I’m definitely not pregnant now.
