The day that i decided to go to the V&A i was recovering out of a really bad virus :( so i really needed some form of inspiration in my life, and that's how i headed to the incredible and inspiring V&A (Victoria and Albert) museum of art and design. There was a great exhibition called Fashion,don't know if it's still on but if it's still on, i highly reccomend it, and it's for free! It's reaaaaaally good , one can see clothes back from the 1850's up until now...i'm posting a selection of my favourite inspiring outfits, cause unfortunately they were too many to post all , i have also left a small part out, that i will post some other day and it's related to SHOES. So i took some photos to share with you.!
