  1. I gather that there is a story behind this one...I like how it looks as though a storm is brewing. Not a huge fan of the way her dress looks, though. :-/

  2. It seems to be a rather blobby school uniform. :P

    I totally want to stand on a hill in windy stormy weather. With long hair and a flowing dress. That would make my life.
