Anjelica couldn't decide whether to dress up or down, so she threw on a little bit of both. Jeans, of course; skin-tight to show off her butt, and jeweled flip-flops. A plain white T? or a glam, vintage sequined top? The sequins won out, they nearly always did.
She rummaged around in her jewelry box, looking for sparkle. When she was done, bangles marched up and down her arms, and every finger sported a different type of ring. Her earrings brushed her shoulders, but the only ornament around her neck was her own skin.
She grabbed a slouchy leather backpack, tossed in her evening essentials, and was gone.
