Today I visited Basildon park and used my own national trust card for the first time! I am getting far too old. They are currently showing lots of 1950's dresses by Horrockses Fashions and they're so beautiful, I love the way that they sit on a woman's body, I wish girls would wear these now instead of trackies and trainers!
A year or so ago I went to Keddleston hall and saw lots Keira Knightley's dresses from The Duchess, they were exquisite, really stunning, if only I could walk around in a corseted-full skirted-full length dress now and not be stared at.
Thank you to the National Trust for the pictures.
