Wallflower Vintage Presents: Downton Abbey

Haven't heard of Downton Abbey? Living under a rock are you? So, run - don't walk to PBS Masterpiece. Pour some tea and catch up!

So, now that they're gone - let's talk, shall we? Who would have thought a drama set immediately following the sinking of the Titanic and set in post-Victorian, pre-Great War England would be so darn fascinating? Knock me over with a feather. When you make Saturday Night Live fodder - pop culture status has been obtained.

What else fascinates me is, of course, the period clothing. Can you say yummy? Check out Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess in layers of velvet and fur. Don't get me started on her hats...
The class distinctions are clear.
Edwardian Love.
Gloves! Dear me, I could drone on and on. Let me know why you love the show!
