Lucy is the coolest person I've ever met.

Ok actually Ms. Frizzle was the coolest. But we only met briefly. And it was in a dream. And she's a cartoon character. So...
Yeah. Lucy's still the winner.
I first met Lucy Thursday just before the horrific torrential downpour, when I physically barricaded her from crossing the street to see her friend. Then, after flashing my underskirts (literally - people honked) to the onslaught of oncoming traffic, I proceeded to contort myself into an unnecessarily awkward position in my cute little attempt at photographic artistry.
Needless to say, Lucy would have looked amazing whether or not I provided the vehicular passersby an eyeful of my
Tweety Bird VS underwear - but I like to nobly sacrifice dignity for art. Devotion.
Anyhowwwww ... back to Lucy.
Turns out, besides having the awesomest name of anyone I've yet assaulted (superhero, anyone?), stalkage has since revealed that Lucy's got some intimidatingly serious fashion street-cred. In February, she won the FIJI Water contest to be an intern at NYFW and got to meet Anna Wintour, Bill Cunningham, The Sartorialist & Oscar de la Renta.
She's also mind-bogglingly well-dressed, annoyingly pretty, shamefully friendly, a phenomenal blogger (Vintage Roots), and secretly working for the CIA. (When I disappear after this post ... you'll know why)

She even allowed me to take her picture a second time at the TASA Fashion Show - which of course she organized, planned, ran, blah blah blah so on so on.*** C'mon, Lucy. I can only take so much. ;)
Lucy, I want to be you.
*** It was a group effort by so many people, designers, students, the Textile and Apparel Student Association, blah blah blah so on so on. Even superheroes have accomplices.
