Rob's parents came to town this weekend for a visit…
Those lovely Edwardian costumes in Downton Abbey have me so ready for spring. It’s fun to translate the period’s fashion to today with silks, beads, lovely colors, a little lace, a lot of feminine elegance. I could see wearing this to a shower, afternoon opera or a fancy lunch.
Slip – Start strong with a white satin slip trimmed with lace and black bows from Darjeeling in France.
Shirt – Smokey gray silk with beading detail on the cowl neckline.
Skirt – A slate blue pencil skirt.
Necklace – A $10,000 Edwardian aquamarine and diamond laviliere necklace.
Ring – And a $1,000 Edwardian aquamarine ring to match.
Fascinator – Feather and ribbon in a gray hairpiece on Etsy.
Clutch – In dark silver for $35.
Shoes – These lovely vintage-styled t-strap gray shoes are from Target for only $32
Tea at The Palace, anyone?
