As I prepare for the baby, I have been heavily thinking about what I am going to wear in the hospital. I actually purchased this Cheetah Print Gownie. I know it may seem frivolous to some, but the last thing I want to do it put on a regular hospital gown (more like two of them) and feel like I am sick person.
Chelsea and I went down to Chinatown in Downtown Los Angeles so I could purchase a few short kimonos to wear after the baby in born for my hospital stay. I figure it would be easiest to breast feed, super chic and comfortable with leggings. Chinatown is also an amazing art deco area for pictures, so we made an afternoon of it!
Chinatown saw it's first settlers in 1852. It originally consisted of a shanty alleyway, 50 feet wide, which about 200 men inhabited. In 1938, the Chinatown as we know it now was built.
Ah, a site you see often in Los Angeles - feeding the parking meter.
