Are you laughing? Because I know I am! A few weeks back I went and ticked off a place I’ve wanted to see for a while off the list. I’m constantly trying to find interesting and free places to experience in London, and The Horniman Museum has been top of the list for a while. And why not throw some plus size 60s style in there too, right?
So me and my best friend have a bit of a thing for the strange, the macabre and the dead. The dead part being that we love a bit of taxidermy — most especially when it’s badly done! So we’re lucky that London has some amazing (and free!) museums full of taxidermy animals for amusement and education purposes. The Horniman museum has been on our list for a while, since we loved the idea of the overstuffed walrus.
As North London gals, taking the trip down South of The River was a long one, and honestly not really the most worth it. Was it a good way to spend a few hours? Of course. There was hundreds of ridiculous animal specimens to peruse and laugh at, but ultimately I wouldn’t bother too much unless it’s close to you.
Hey ho, though — I ticked off something I’ve wanted to do for a while, right?
The taxidermy was spectacular, though. We’re both big fans of Bad Taxidermy, and The Horniman Museum did not disappoint us! It was also pretty cool going on a Friday, since there wasn’t many families or kids — which is especially good when you have a foul mouth like I do!
What about the plus size 60’s style?
As always, I dressed for the occasion by wearing a new short skirt I got from SHEIN a whilst back. And promptly felt very weird about my legs. Which is funny because let’s be honest guys, these legs are pretty great!
This skirt is pretty similar to the window pane skirt I wore the other week, but obviously a lot shorter. I don’t wear this one as much as the other due to the length, but I really love it as an addition to this slight plus size 60s style I’m going for at the moment. Because what 60’s style doesn’t include a mini skirt, right?
