I luckily had Sunday off and I took the chance to see a wedding dress exhibition at the West Australian Museum. There was an awesome offer of having high tea if you payed a higher price (the high tea included entry to the exhibition). I never pass up a high tea. I wish my friend Merissa was still in Perth, because we would have had so much fun together. I bet she's having a wonderful time in the UK, but I really miss her.
Lisa, who runs descent, came with me. She's a really nice girl and I enjoy her company.
The food was so yummy. There were finger sandwiches with the crust cut off, quiches, cakes, scones with lots of real cream and jam. YUM! and unlimited pots of tea! I had about five cups of tea :)
After stuffing ourselves on scones and tea, we headed into the exhibition. Sadly no photography was allowed. They did have a few dresses out front of the exhibition that I took a photo of.
The exhibition is from the Victoria and Albert museum in London. It features wedding dresses through the ages, from regency times to current. I love fashion history! There were some brilliant dresses, I loved looking at all of the details. It made me wish that I will get married one day. I'm going to have an uber goth wedding with coffins and bats!
It was so interesting to imagine all of the women who wore these dresses. Imagine how scared they must have been!! It must have been so scary not knowing what to expect in the bedroom after the wedding was over. Poor girls.
Some dresses from the museum collection.

It was a warm day, so I wore this cute dress. I'm OVER hiding my arms away. I'm going to wear sleeveless shirts without feeling ashamed!

I've watched a few Fringe shows, I get in for free with my staff pass. My favourite so far has been Briefs. I only get around one day off a week, so I haven't been home much other than to sleep.
