Wildie Day Out - London Dec 13th

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

PS. Both daughters turned up to look out for him and take him to the local Miller and Carter. They had quite a time.

That's good to hear PP (the PS, not the getting old!). Your journey in sounded enough to age anyone :?. Sleep tight.

Glad you all had a lovely time ... I find it’s not the travelling so much as all the people and things that get in my way :rolleyes: :lol: life would be a breeze with fewer of them 8-)

The exhibition was really interesting, I think the thing that struck me was how long it took fashion to trickle down in those days, clothes I remembered making copies of in ‘67 - ‘70 were dated ‘61 - ‘63 :o
Then lunch was a nice change (despite some slow service)
Was nice to share with other Wildies

I was home quite late despite having a short journey as I got off the tube at Russell Square and walked up to St Pancras through the Bloomsbury Centre looking in the shops and picking up some bits in Waitrose

I only took some of at the exhibition ... none of our food, or participants - need to download pics onto my laptop so I can upload onto here :rolleyes:

Oh yes, how interesting, and yet now I read that after the various Trade Fashion shows the likes of Zara eg have pared down copies on sale in a week.

There was always a thing of getting copies of couture out quickly - that's how the Wallis shops started I think, they had fantastic pattern cutters who could get a simplified version of a dress on sale almost as soon as it was featured in the newspapers as the new Paris fashion or what a royal person was wearing. The shops are actually named after Mrs Wallis Simpson, later Duchess of Windsor
