Once upon a time, Anne told me, she lived in Columbia and toiled at a place called WIS-TV (alongside some knows-it-all character she presumed I might have heard of). She had returned to bring her daughter to orientation at the University of South Carolina. She caught my eye with this sweeping long dress, which she had paired with gladiator sandals. Rather smashing, I thought. I admired the mix of patterns, the black and white colour scheme, and was soon swept up by the woman's vibrant personality and naughty sense of humour, as well. Her amble down memory lane was leading her to Goatfeathers. Reader, I confess, I invited myself along. Rude, perhaps--but indeed I did have fun!
