You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger darling

I've been in show rehearsals all week, so tired, yet I'm still hauling myself outa bed to go musical theatre class. I had my final show yesterday, and now it's two weeks of nothingness until the big move, scary stuff...
I popped down to London last weekend (my soon to be new home ^.^) dropped by a few of the usual spots; Covent Gardens, Oxford Street, Tate Mod... Ooh and I went to the Ballgown exhibition at the V&A, which I've been really excited about - I wasn't allowed to take photos of it but the ones above are from the surrounding fashion section. I wasn't too fussed about the dresses downstairs (wait whaaat?! ikr.) they were all so pretty, but I think I'm tiring of pretty... just a little bit. I can still appreciate the historical side of fashion and how it's evolved, but since I've started studying it full time I'm more excited to see something, I duno, different. Upstairs however was quite spectacular - with some of last season's more outstanding pieces by the big names in contemporary fashion design. I could waffle on forever about the wonders of McQueen and Mary K, but actually my favourite piece was the Felicity Brown dress, which was displayed on a revolving platform (holla) it was pretty darn spesh (the photo in the link doesn't do it justice...)

I still have ombre hair but it's barely noticeable now, I'm gona get it cut and re-dyed next week, excited! This is what I wore...

Lace blouse - Topshop | Black Dress (worn underneath) - H&M | Floral Tights - Vintage Market | Biker Boots (unseen) - New Look
