19, college nursing student, Shawnee, Kan. Bah and two friends drove to Chicago so she could pick up her visa for an upcoming trip to the Netherlands. With that business accomplished, she popped into Victoria's Secret and bought a lacy bright pink bra and matching undies for herself. Asked if she had plans for a special viewing, Bah laughs and says, "Maybe." Despite visits to many stores, none of the traveling trio actually bought Christmas gifts on their day in the big city.
