Vintage in Bath

We took Milo (sporting his retro Cuba dungarees all the way from Havana) to visit his friend Bertie in beautiful Bath and took the opportunity to see the Fashion Museum's vintage wedding dress exhibition (while the boys and their Dads listened to cricket in the park).

There was plenty to love at the exhibition (on until January 2012) - from elaborate 19th Century gowns and demure 40s dresses to frothy 80s meringues and minimalist 90s pieces - it was just a shame they were all accessorised with some rather distracting 'contemporary' paper head dresses! My favourite was not actually a wedding dress, but a 17th Century robe made entirely from real silver thread - divine.
