But that's not all I love about Downton. Not by a long shot. The thing that really draws me in, the thing that has me daydreaming and fantasizing about being Lady Mary or Lady Sybil (my personal fave) is . . . the fashion. I know, it's so vain, but oh my heavens are those some lovely little frocks on that show. From their everyday clothes to their fancy dinner dresses, I want it all. Also, can we please bring hats back? And maybe gloves too? Why are they not more common in everyday fashion?
Downton Abbey style has left the small screen and become a part of modern style, too, especially when it comes to wedding dresses. When I was shopping for my dress a few months ago, I couldn't help but notice how many "vintage" styles were out there. And all of them make me swoon. In fact, just seeing these dresses makes me want to plan our English garden vow renewal ceremony and we're not even married yet! Though I ended up going with something a little different, I'm crossing my fingers that I'll at least get to photograph a lovely Downton-inspired dress this year.
What about you? Downton Abbey fan or not quite interested?
