Victoria and Albert Museum

Here are a few photos I got while touring the Victoria and Albert Museum (I really hate to do this to the Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum but the V&A is my new favorite museum). This museum was magical and once I was in I din not want to leave. I knew that I was going to be there wandering around for hours and I wanted to be comfy so I wore a loose fitting shirt dress from Anthropologie and a scarf. Then I felt horribly unfashionable when I toured the costume wing (which featured a Grace Kelly exhibition) – I’ve got a ton more pics of that to share later.











I also came across this interesting article about Shopbop – has anyone ever shopped online with them? I was intrigued by the amount of business they are doing, sort of a younger version of Net-A-Porter.

I love the collection at the V&A. One of my favourite London addresses for art. I also love the Royal Academy of Arts. Nice dress you are wearing. Enjoy the weekend and London;-)

What do you think the museum would do if I jumped on that bed? Ba ha ha, gorgeous pics! XX!

Such magical moments... I remember the lure of that museum from a few years ago. I love to tour around as well. Taking in inspirations for creations to come. Appreciating the bygone, looking into what is to come. Life is here and now.

I've heard really great things about Shopbob, but it is so expensive, I haven't gotten anything from them before.
Your outfit is very casual-chic. I like it.
That glass sculpture is a Dale Chihuly; an American artist from Tacoma, WA.

I LOVE shopbop. I only really buy from their sale b/c it can be pricey.

What a beautiful museum! Thanks for sharing your pics, Courtney! Ooo looking forward to your Grace Kelly post:) She was oh so lovely! I'm a fan of shopbop, but I only peruse through since prices are a bit much lol Sometimes they have good sales:) Have a great weekend!
