Downton Abbey

my new obsession.

This new series on PBS is about the Crawley family, Downton Abbey, the house keeping staff and all the adventures that go with running a large home in the early 1900's.

there is blooming romance and inheritance and feminist issues, black mail, lies and secrets

but what i love the most are the costumes. o.m.g. i am in love.

Mary and her mother Cora are always my favorites.

the detail is simply amazing.

I can't get enough of this show. its a great story and i love seeing what they are wearing. this is one of my all time favorite time periods for fashion, women were coming out of wearing corsets and starting to show more skin (ankles). not many people know of this time frame because it was so short, 10 years, 1910-1920. it doesn't have a name either, but it is so beautiful to me filled with hobble skirts and high waists. and the hats we must not forget the amazing hats. ahhh can i just go back in time for a day...please?

go check it out, you can watch all 4 episodes online!
