Downton Abbey ~ Lady Mary

It had to happen eventually:  a Downton Abbey post.  I've been avoiding writing about this television series because, well, everyone else has been, and I can't add anything new.  But honestly, I'm in mourning!   The Fabulous Boyfriend and I both adore this show, and having just finished the season 2 finale, we must now wait impatiently until the next season begins.  So, I'll sprinkle in a post here and there about my favorite bits of the show.
Aside from the fantastic screenplay and wonderful acting, I've been swooning over the clothes.  This is my favorite era for fashion, and the costume designer just nailed it.  I'm most drawn to the outfits worn by Lady Mary; they've given her a darker aesthetic with rich colors and liberal amounts of black.  I could happily dress like this every day.

How about you?  Have you seen the series yet?  If not, you're in for a real treat.  If you have, what are some of your favorite things about the show?
oh, the hats!

this burgundy outfit was one of my favorites

I've only watched parts of it, but I have to agree especially on the costumes. And it's fabulous escapism tv ;-) Have a lovely weekend xo

I loved the dresses, too! It will be so hard to wait another 10 months or so for the next season.
