Wassuppp.

On Sunday, Melissa and I went to the Ballgown exhibition at the V&A, to see all the pretty dresses. It was all so beautiful. Stand out dresses for me were the Marchesa silk tulle dress (link here), a Mary Katrantzou dress (link here) and the Alexander McQueen dresses (here and here). But really, all of the dresses were amazing and I loved the layout and decor of the exhibition too. I loved it so much, that I'm planning to go again with my friend some time soon as it only costs £8 and it was £8 well spent. Unfortunately, I couldn't take any photos so don't have any more to show you guys, but if you get a chance, I advise that you go check it out as you can get tickets on the day too! 

For the rest of the day, we grabbed lunch at Pret and chilled in the spinning chairs outside the V&A, hence the mid-spin photos of both me and Melissa. Afterwards, we wandered around the rest of the V&A, went to the Natural History Museum and then we took a bus to High Street Kensington and did some shopping. It was such a fun day and we nice to catch up with Melissa as we hadn't seen eachother since we went to see The Maccabees about a month ago D:

Anyhow, I'm off to get a start on an English essay about One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest so I'll see you all laterzzz.
