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:

Daisies on an adult size Lenci doll skirt

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!
