Gene Marshall: La Nina de la Plaza
I don’t know a whole lot about this outfit, other than it came from a 2002 Gene Convention in Albuquerque and was designed by Jim Howard. I also know that the particular one I purchased came without jewelry, a COA, a storycard, or the headscarf. Yet, I still bought it. In its simplicity, I thought it would make a great addition to my collection. Borrowing some hoop earrings from another ensemble and throwing in the lace mantilla from a Jackie Kennedy doll, voila...Gene was ready for her photoshoot! She looks like she belongs in Italy, perhaps crushing grapes with Lucy Ricardo!
