who's that girl?

her name is Johanna Öst and she lives in Sweden.....i stumbled upon her one day on Flickr and was instantly mesmerized by her......she is a fabulously talented young lady with a feverish love of history that shows itself in her artwork as well as her amazing sense of style...
do yourself a favor and check out her website as well as a fantastic photographer named Liselotte Eriksson's photo set of Johanna on Flickr

of course i thought, "wow! i wish she could model for me.....but she is so far away"....and then i sent her a proposal.....would she like to receive some V&V fancies free of charge in exchange for photos of her wearing them?....and she said yes! ....
Needless to say, i am thrilled beyond words ......
here are the photos she has sent so far...

what a doll!
