There’s always been a lot of blue in my closet, but until this month (when I got this dress and a pair of suede pumps), there was never much cobalt blue. And I think I know why. I grew up in North Carolina, and even though I don’t have much allegiance to my home state, I will be a UNC basketball fan for life. If you know anything about North Carolina or about college basketball, you know the UNC/Duke rivalry is EPIC. So naturally, my love for UNC is accompanied by a hatred for Duke. The point of this story if you don’t already know: Carolina blue is like a sky blue, and Duke blue is pretty much cobalt. So I think when I see cobalt I subconsciously associate it with Duke. But I decided recently I shouldn’t let a stupid sports team steal a perfectly beautiful color from me. And that’s the story of how I beat Duke.
