Teresa could take a plain dress, add a scarf or some jewelry and a coordinating purse—all secondhand—and make it look like a thousand-dollar outfit. She’d always done that with her own clothes, and now she used her talent in her consignment store. She was extremely professional, even waxing the clothes racks so that garments slid easily, and she kept meticulous books so that she could pay her bills and her consignors promptly. Most important to Teresa, she could take Morgan to work with her; her two clerks or friends who dropped by were there to share the babysitting duties.
Their wedding reception at Chuck’s Lake Goodwin home began with a lot of laughter and toasts as Chuck’s friends arrived to congratulate them. Oddly, the new bride had hired a bouncer to be present at the reception. He was a tall, muscular man she worked with at the Bon Marché department store. There was one very embarrassing incident at the reception. One of Chuck’s neighbors, an old friend named Jan, brought an uninvited date. She was one of Chuck’s many former girlfriends. Everybody else who showed up was welcome.
Basically, Teresa was a “man’s woman,” and didn’t care all that much for women, unless they were in a position to better her life. With her female friends, her mien was either that of a naive, vulnerable woman—a role in which she was also believable—or she was a living, walking soap opera for female friends whose own lives weren’t nearly as interesting as hers. One of Teresa’s customers at the Bon Marché became a very close friend. Joyce Lilly* dropped by regularly to buy Liz Claiborne products, and they often had lunch together.
