On Monday I blogged about my visit to Shambellie House and shared all the beautiful pictures I took of the building itself. Well today I want to share what we saw inside the house... there was a special exhibition on of 40s/50s dresses, and gosh they were pretty!
The exhibition is called Off the Peg: Fashion from the 40s and 50s, and showcased the beautiful dresses from the Horrockses Fashions Limited label. You can read all about it here.
The exhibition itself was small, it was in one main room and had a few more dresses in a further room, but I loved it. The room was so bright, and arranged and lit perfectly to show off the dresses.
The day dresses were by far my favourite, I love the cut of 50s dresses, super flattering and the prints are just so pretty. My very favourite can be seen on the far right of my second photo above, I would wear this everyday if it were mine.
The exhibition also showed some house coats, or dressing gowns, I cannot imagine being bothered to be that glamorous for lounging about the house and then also some beautiful evening gowns.
Rather a lot of photos in today's post, but if you love beautiful dresses as much as me I am sure you didn't mind looking at these!
Which one is your fave?
