Ball Gowns at The V&A

There’s something so deliciously naughty about running around a museum after hours.

Alix of Bohemia & I were very kindly invited to a party at The V&A to celebrate its new ball gown collection.

An evening of champagne & dancing surrounded by creations from the worlds biggest designers and gowns dating back to the 50s.

I wore a vintage dress from my favourite little shop in Somerset, Light Green and turquoise shoes from Zara.

Alix wore one of her own fabulous creations. (You can order her designs through her blog here.)

I found my Prince Charming at the ball, but I have to say he was a little stoney…

Alix also found hers…

Princess Diana’s incredible pearl number.

We stayed until the stars came out and then took our dresses dancing.

The new exhibit really is incredible and we couldn’t help drawing comparisons with the Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met in New York(which is one of the first things I ever blogged about!).

The V&A has always been my favourite museum, it just seems to have more soul than its lofty companions.

I highly recommend a trip, even if you’re not into dresses there’s so much more to see.

The event we attended was organised by Mastercard who organise “Priceless” events in London all the time, so if you fancy skipping along to the next one, you can sign up here.

My ball gown is hanging on the back of my door looking at me, whispering for me to put it on. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to do a little more twirling!
