Paper Dolls in The City (with a capital The of course)

My photography skills are leaving everything to be desired.  I hope I haven't made too much of a mess here.  But I digress.  To start off, first there is the envelope.  The City:

Next, the dolls:

And a few outfits:

And now for some nights on the town:

This mail is the best!  The handwritten commentary is also very very appropos.  I know I recognize at least one of these ensembles.  My favorite is the polka dotted coat.   BTW, I made color copies of everything and cut those up so as not to destroy the wonderful original.

Uh-oh.  I'm afraid I am not sure how to follow this one up!  I'm going to have to watch that video below to get some inspiration.  BTW, it's extremely hypnotic. Watching it is like going into a dream state wherein all of the most torpid moments of your most deeply recessed memories are rudely awakened all at once causing them to spring from under their slumbering rocks and slowly and meanderingly float like a school of neon jellyfish to the top of a sea of half cooked blue green jello.  It sounded good when I typed it but I'm not sure it says what I mean which is: yikes.

I actually researched vintage clothes to do this. Most of the dresses, skirts and coats are actual items on the Internet. Isn't the polka-dot coat fun?
