Ballgowns: British glamour since 1950 - the meetup

As I mentioned in a previous post, I haven't made New Year's Resolutions this year, not as such. However, in 2011 I think I got into good happiness habits and I'd like that to continue in 2012. One of these habits was a simple, but powerful one, spending quality time with excellent people. So, to that end I am proposing another meetup. It's going to be in London, again, but this is unavoidable. Check this out:

From 19th May, The V&A are hosting an exhibition of eveningwear from their collection. You can read about the exhibition and what it contains here. I love the V&A and any excuse to visit it is magical, and I'm proposing to take myself along one Saturday in June. The dress lover in me can't resist it. The seamstress in me is tremdously excited. Tickets aren't yet on sale and I haven't planned a date. It isn't even essential that it's in June, but London is very beautiful in June. For anyone who feels like joining me, I'm thinking of a day out to include the exhibition, maybe some shopping, and definitely a bit of drinking. Who's in? You can let me know your thoughts in the comments below, or do feel free to email me thestreak@gmail.com
