Downton Decadence, How I Love Thee!
Downton Abbey. As a costume and jewelry geek, DA sends me into paroxysms of ecstasy. The story begins in 1912, and takes you through World War I. Drama, war, scandal, plotting, romance, and some of the finest costumes and jewelry I have ever seen on television! After what seems like an eternity of waiting, Season 2 is finally underway. Let the eye candy begin again! Take a peek at some of these lovelies.
The character Lady Mary Crawley gets some of the best frocks on the show. Her evening gowns and riding outfits are to die for! It is impossible to not be inspired by this show. I absolutely must include an ornate Downton-inspired necklace for my Truly, Madly, Darkly midwinter collection. Like the young Lady Sybil says, "Is there anything more thrilling than a new frock?" No, indeed.
