My feedsack dress

This dress/tunic thing is awesome. I found it on eBay years ago for something like $8? It's very old and thin, hand-sewn, and probably a feedsack dress for a little girl? I don't think they made tunics back then...
Pearl collar - eBay
Necklaces - garage sale, thrift store
Feedsack shirt - eBay
Bangle - thrifted
Pants - Earnest Sewn
Shoes - Seychelles

Shoes, necklaces, collar:


I am going to San Francisco soon-ish to visit some friends and I've never been there before! (2010 = year of the vacation. In less than one year I went on a Caribbean cruise; to Seoul, Korea; to Wisconsin to stay with parents for two weeks; a road trip in South Dakota; Washington D.C.; New York City; and now San Francisco. I am so spoiled.) Any suggestions for places to see/shop/eat/etc in San Fran? My friends have lived there a few months so I'm sure they have ideas but I'd love to hear some more, especially since I will be on my own until the afternoon for two of the days! Thanks in advance for your sage advice!

Edit: Since I just found out about Blogging for Breast Cancer AWEARness, and only own like three pink things...  these shoes totally count, yes?

I want all of the accessories that you wore for these pictures! Those shoes are fantastic and so are the necklaces!

Being a fan of all things tunic and t-shirty, I adore your top! Have fun in SF (chowder along the wharf, yum yum!).

Rent a bike at Fisherman's Wharf and bike the Golden Gate! Mucho fun.

I love removable collars. That dress/tunic is cute.

How cool is that pearl collar?! I've never seen anything like it. And the shoes are so amazing!

Hm, I've been around 10 years ago, for a school trip...what I most distinctly remember are: the Japanese tea garden, the Exploratorium, and Fisherman's Wharf with Ripley's and Ghirardelli Square. I bought chocolate-flavoured pasta, mhh. :)
A friend of mine is currently living there, too, to finish her PhD at Berkeley - I SO wish I had the money to visit. I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself!

SF advice: stay away from fisherman's wharf, nuthin to see. Go thrifting in the mission or on haight street, rent a bike on haight street & stanyan and bike over the bridge and down to the ocean and back. Spend a day in GG Park, go to the japanese tea garden & get tea, go to the deyoung and the california academy of sciences. Crissy field is a better walk along the water. Go to the farmer's market (thurs and Sat) in the Ferry building.
