London Trip 2012 - Part 1 - V&A

Photobucket

I had been wanting to get to the V&A for ages, so that was the first place I went (after dropping off my suitcase!) .... they had a couple of extra displays that I didn't pay to see ... one of which I could see from one of the balconies anyway!

Still it was good fun, and a great start to my holiday.  I stuck to the main section ... pottery, glass and textiles.  It was the costumes that I really enjoyed looking at.

And, to show that I was there here is a (blurred) picture ... yes, the light was fading and using non-flash makes my camera not very happy sometimes!

Photobucket

So mostly it was the costumes I loved ... I really should be better at making notes as to dates and names.  Anyway, behind the cut are a few pictures of my favourite outfits ....
