I have a new obsession, and it’s called Downton Abbey. If you haven’t watched this show, you really must. It’s a British period show, set in the early 1900′s, and is basically about the lives of an aristocratic family known as the Crawleys and their servants. Not only is the show amazing because of the story, but also because of the gorgeous fashions and hairstyles that the women and men wear.
My friend shared with me this great article on Buzzfeed the other day, “17 Reasons why “Downton Abbey” Is The Best Show Ever.” It was hilarious (and the inspiration for this post!), and I agreed with every reason. If you’ve seen the show before, you definitely need to read it. If not…well then you’re missing out and need to start watching, but I’m warning you, you will be hooked. I also found out from the article that the beautiful castle where the show is filmed is REAL! I am definitely planning on visiting it one day, and while I’m in the UK (one of my favorite countries to visit), I might just stop at Rush Reading hair salon and get a Downton-inspired hairdo.
Anyway, enough of my babbling. This week’s most wanted pieces are of course the beautiful fashions and hairstyles the women at Downton wear. Take a look at some photos below, and some “modern” ways to wear Downton inspired fashions.
