Victory At Last!



Like so many others, I haven't been able to stop staring at this lovely girl that the Face Hunter snapped on the street. I'm loving her look from head to toe (except the white tights, for which it is much too hot at this point - maybe later). I quickly made an inventory in my head of what items I would need to recreate a look inspired by her: pleated black skirt, nude lacy sweater, black and white oxfords. I plan on keeping a keen eye out at the thrift store on my next trip.

Luckily, the black and white oxfords can be crossed off that list. After all of my recent Ebay woes, I did not have high hopes that these would end up in my hands (or on my feet as the case may be). I placed a bid, walked away and pretty much forgot about them. I was thrilled last night to find that I had won the auction. It's a bloody miracle! Expect to see them in W_R soon!
