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:









Details about the look:

Blouse: 1940s Hawaiian beaded birds ~ From: Alameda flea market
Skirt: 1960s ~ From: heldover
Shoes: 1960s ~ From: kennedy holmes
Hat: 1950s ~ From: Linda Wink bad girl vintage
Purse: 1980s Victor Carranza piano purse ~ From: Twirl Vintage Co
Belt:1960s ~ From: Costume Party SF
Lipstick: MAC in So Chaud

Photographed in: San Francisco above Chinatown Stockton tunnel

I've moved quite a bit in my short life so I know how you're feeling-- this year I've made it a point to explore more areas of Chicago as it's easy to settle into a routine and before I know it I might move again.

The mixing of the prints really works in your outfit and of course you're rockin' an amazing purse yet again!

Lovelovelove that blouse and your hat! I'm sure San Francisco is going to miss you! I can't wait to meet you too. I am keeping my ears open for a room for you. I would have you come stay at our house but i'm afraid my Kitty is not a dog lover! :( I will email you if I come up with anything and you will have to come over for tea when you get here xxxxx

Liz said...

You look stunning, as usual. I cannot and will not get over the glory of that top.

Sarah said...

Amazing, cannot go past the spectacle that is the hat, fantastic! x
