First Chapter-- First Paragraph-- Tuesday Intros
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from Gossip by Beth Gutcheon:
'You were asking about Diane Wainwright,' I said to Judy Mellincroft, once we got her bodice basted. Mrs. Oba was on the floor with her mouth full of pins, taking up the hem of a sleek wine-colored evening sheath. Judy is so tiny that we have to reconstruct everything she buys, but it's worth it. She loves the designers I carry, and she's out in my clothes everyday for lunch and most nights during the season, a walking advertisement for the shop, and I don't even have to give her a discount.
