She has the pleasure of a penthouse view atop her black and red soled high heels.

Her makeup is indiscernible, only giving her skin a youthful glow. Her hair is ultra-straight, dark brown and just below her shoulders. It floats with every shake of her head, like a feather at the mercy of the wind.
