A la Downton Abbey

118219558940363540_XtXUc299_c   America has caught a little bit of Downton Abbey fever and Vintage Vogue is no exception. We love the show and why wouldn’t we? It takes us to an entirely different era when things were, not necessarily simpler, but just classier all around- including the fabulous attire.

I know I’ve often said to myself while watching the show, “Wow! I love what she’s wearing!” and perhaps you have felt the same way. But then again, that does not mean I’m going to be wearing beautiful evening gowns to dinner in my 2,500 square foot home. We live in different times and with different incomes but that doesn’t mean our fashion can not be influenced by such gorgeous attire in our day-to-day living.

Take for example the 20’s inspired blouse with these jeans. It’s definitely a fun way to incorporate a little “Downton” while out shopping on a Saturday or the next photo definitely makes a statement without being over the top. Trend spotters have been noticing how designers have let themselves be influenced by the craze and have now been incorporating vintage elements in their collections.

A great way to Downton-ize your wardrobe is to use vintage jewelry and brooches and consignment and antique shops are a perfect place to look. You can never go wrong with pearls and gold touches! Have you found an easy way to add vintage to your look? Share with a comment below…
