Ah… Downton Abbey… Here in the US we just finished season three, and what a season! I’m still not sure how I feel about the turn of events throughout the season; especially the final one (I shan’t spoil it for you if you haven’t caught up on things!). But let’s talk about something on a lighter note, shall we? One of the appeals of the show is the gorgeous clothing. While I adored the elegant styles of the 1910s, the early 20s is one of my favorite periods in fashion history (after the 40s and 50s that is!). The styles were such a radical departure from previous eras, but still maintained much of that feminine charm in detail and trim. I wanted to share some of my favorite scans that I’ve shared previously here, just in celebration (or mourning…) of the end of season 3 of Downton!
Thank you for all the sweet inquiries of late about mine and the baby’s health! We’ve both been getting excellent reports when I’ve been to see my midwife, and I’m now 36 weeks along (nearly full term!), which means the end is near. SH is going to help with the last of the nursery set-up (I can’t reach to hang pictures quite as well as I used to… lol.), and then I’m hoping to get some decent snapshots to share with you in the next week or two. Let’s just say there is a lot of vintage influence (surprise!) in the space, loads of vintage floral prints, and soft colors. Heck, I want to live in there! hehe.
Have a lovely weekend!
P.S. I’ve posted some lovely 1920s inspiration previously that you might want to take a peek at!
