Downton Inspiration

So, I  am an abolute SUCKER for any period dramas and anything oldy worldy.  I was completely besotted with Underbelly Razor because it was set in the 1920’s.  Even further back than that is Downton Abbey which I dropped everything for every Sunday night it aired last year.  I’m EXCEPTIONALLY excited to know it returns to our screens again once more this Sunday.

Why do I love it?  It’s the femininty of the dress, the innocence and optimism, peace & prosperity. I suppose it seems like a simpler time and in my life, in all it’s glorious business, simpler is quite attractive.

Anyway, I digress…this blog post is about this old world glanour to which I am so addicted and how it can be relfected in my life and my work…

Firstly, this very Downtony dress from Claire Pettibone….how amazing!!
