Gee Gaby Aint I Good To You | Billie Holiday

Model / Character : Skye Stracke / Anette Welch

Bio: Anette Welch is a stylish, confused and forgetful high society girl living in the late 1950's. Her mind likes to wander but her family likes her to be smart and proper. She'd love to break free and explore the world but she also loves her safe, sheltered, wealthy life. Her favourite things include gardens, white marble, fountains, pastels, speaking french, and using her imagination. 

Story: It was the last day of German and math lessons and Anette could not wait to get back to her regular schedule of French, painting and writing. She always seemed happier and fresher in the weeks spent painting and learning that whimsical, beautiful language. Exiting the doors of the white, airy salon Anette hummed to herself and danced up the stairwell into her pastel, peony-filled bedroom. She opened the doors to her patio and let the wind whirl her blonde hair around her shoulders. There was nothing she loved more than summer- beaches and sunlight and sweet little parties with lemonade drinks and warm, smooth bodies dancing to lazy evening music. It was heaven to her, and she knew she loved it. 
A knock on the bedroom door caught her attention- it was her mother, inviting her downstairs for afternoon tea with a few other high-society ladies. They were associated with women's colleges of some sort- no doubt trying to trap her into attending their summer seminars or applying for a year of studies. This was the part of her life Anette wished didn't exist- the part where she was expected to politely decline and accept all these ridiculous offers she didn't have the slightest interest in. 
Why couldn't she just travel and learn wherever and whatever she wanted? Why was that such a wild idea? It's all she ever wanted- to have freedom and gain knowledge by experience instead of books borrowed from professors and libraries. Someday she would do it- someday she would fly away and only come back when she'd had the most glorious adventures anyone had ever dreamed of.
