The girl who loves The Clothes Horse is very pale because she spends most of her time indoors on the computer connecting with other strangers and researching obscure fashion plates from the 1800s. She's fascinated by the wilderness, but can really only handle a few moments outside. She dyes her hair a vivid shade of red in homage to her favorite artist Tiziano Vecelli and owns at least 100 pairs of heels but only ever wears flats. Her passion for blog reading comes from her inquisitive nature and a desire to really know what other people are thinking…
