My love of clothes, styling and all things fashion comes from my mum. For her birthday this year, I promised her five fabulous days out. The first one involved an exhibition of Princess Diana’s dresses and a Vivien of Holloway Lock-In. Yesterday, we met up for another day of fashion – it was a pretty good one!
Another frock from my favourite vintage emporium – Frock & Roll. This dress is full of details: pockets, a tie belt and adorable buttons!
I can honestly say that the Victoria and Albert Museum is the museum I’ve visited the most often. Mum and I have seen the Wedding Dress, Alexander McQueen and Underwear Exhibitions in previous years and we’ve loved every one! We hopped on the train from Wokingham and headed straight to South Kensington station.
After the V&A, we went for lunch and a couple of much-needed margaritas. Feeling a little merry, we made our way to Portobello Road. Rachel of WKD sent me an invite a few weeks ago and I thought mum would fancy coming along too. Apologies for my gigantic face in lots of these photos. We had a blast!
Thank you Rachel for the invite. Throughout the evening, I felt relaxed (but still terribly awkward) and I got to talk to so many lovely people. Mum found a comfy spot to sit in and ended up talking to people about the NHS, midwifery and the mysteries of life – typical her. I was also incredibly happy to see so many pin-ups of colour in one spot!
With sore feet, we headed home. I love these days out with my mum. I get to treat her like she’s always treated me and we have a good giggle. Here’s to the next one!
