Holiday snaps (ii): USA

Birthday present from lovely friends I stayed with in DC:


We went to the Smithsonian to see the exhibition of First Ladies’ Dresses which was very fun. We also saw a vast dolls’ house, Judy Garland’s ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz, and Miss Piggy:WP_20130721_001

I have no photos from my time in Philly because I wasn’t really being a tourist there.

In NYC, we went to the Fashion District: WP_20140513_001

And mostly we went to Mood where they sell zips:

I made some purchases:



I did not take any photos when we went to see the Lion King because there were a lot of people telling us all the time that we weren’t allowed to. It did not stop many people, however. I really think that if Disney don’t want people taking pictures of the safety curtain, the easiest thing would be to use a plain safety curtain. Nor did I take pictures of the Charles James exhibition at the Met, because again it wasn’t allowed. Nor have I taken photos of all my other purchases because I’m assuming you know what jeans, plasters and plain pashminas look like. And the glorious necklace I bought was pictured in a previous post.
