"If anybody starts using me as scenery, I`ll return to New York."

Dress, Topshop; Seam back stockings, Topshop; Lace gloves, V&A shop; Pearl necklace, vintage.

Today was lovely.

Nada and I went to the V&A to see Grace Kelly: Style Icon which, by the way, is stunning.
The exhibition shows her magnificent wardrobe spanning from the fifties, when she was known as a enchanting, award-winning actress with girl-next-door appeal as well as, of course, the princess of Monaco, to her 25th wedding anniversary in the early eighties, a year before her death.

Every little girl's dream, right? Glamorous actress AND a princess?
Well, I say 'little girl', but I think I'm still there.

Personally, I thought the highlights were her platinum and diamond tiara, her Hermรจs "Kelly" bag (named after her because she was seen carrying it so often), and her Dior maternity gown (a gift from Christian himself). 

Another highlight, of course, was the mini Grace Kelly shop where I bought these pretty lace gloves.

We then went to have an innocent look in Harrod's, where I had righteously vowed never to spend any money because of their fur farms. 

It seems I have lost all of my morals.
