Last visits to Chinatown


I am getting premature nostalgia for little old San Francisco, even though I haven't left yet
I find myself behaving as a tourist everyday
And looking forlornly
At old photographs and videos of San Francisco!

Here is a Chinatown shoot near my apartment:

Some details of today's outfit. H&M shorts, vintage jumper, Alexander Wang bag, Romwe ring and shoes.

YESHOP BAZAAR

It was during last summer's Yiorgos Eleftheriades bazaar that I got my beloved jacket so I think this is a case of actions speaking louder than words.

Started today so hurry up.

Update: extended for this week too, May 5-7

I have talked about how I look like Lenci dolls here
Since I have the same body type and face hahah
I thought I would take tips and hints from the dolls themselves!!
With the skirt above I can now officially style a Lenci - esque outfit!!
I also found a hat (will be in a future winter post)
I also recently won a Lenci doll purse on ebay which will go nicely with above hat!

Look at the felt flowers and scallops on the edge of the skirt and hats below!
The designer of my skirt must have loved lenci dolls as much as I do!



Outfit details:

Skirt: Late 1940s ~ from: bluemoon ahhh look how the daisy petals are all over!  It kills me!
Crochet top: 1930s crochet net with crochet berries
Shoes: 1960s A gift from hellosweetmarie
Purse: 1950s figural frog wicker purse
Hair flowers and bows: millinery scraps
