Nearly two months after her death, Kate Spade's husband Andy paid tribute to the iconic fashion designer in an Instagram tribute posted late Monday as he also revealed some insight into the difficult time he's going through since her passing.
“She was born Christmas Eve, 1962,” Spade, 55, wrote. “She loved the Midwest, the desert, and the city. I was lucky enough to have dear friends let my daughter and stay at their home through a difficult time.”
He continued, “This tree was standing alone beside the house so we ordered those multicolored, old fashioned lights from Amazon or Target and another dear personal friend gave me a really long extension cord and Bea and I cut a star out of the cardboard box the lights came on and wrapped it in Reynolds wrap like we do every Christmas.”
Spade shared a photo of the small brightly lit tree amid the desert background.
