During the several years I've been working on my coming-out-next-year novel COBALT BLUE, I've been collecting items to wear to celebrate. This dress is from a thrift shop near the causeway between mainland San Diego and Coronado Island. The glasses — and you can just imagine my delight at finding them — are from the PTA thrift shop in Chapel Hill. I have quite a collection of Cobalt Blue, and my timing is very lucky; all the fashion magazines are announcing it this fall as the color of the season. I'll be wearing mine well into next year — and beyond.
