from Rob Thomas’ Rats Saw God
…Allison was significantly behind, or ahead of the times, depending on how you view fashion cycles. Her brown hair was pulled back and French-braided into a thick, shoulder-length ponytail. Today she wore a red-and-green tartan skirt with a knee-length hem, a plain, starched white blouse, white ankle socks, and tan-and-white oxfords. She looked like a schoolgirl in an AC/DC video – before the innocent hears Angus play.
