Countdown Abbey

L1150047

Darlings-I thought the day would simply never arrive and yet all at once it is here.

The season 3 premiere of Downton Abbey tonight at 9pm est.  Will you be watching??

Certainly my husband and I will be tuning in (he loves it just as much as I do )

In honour of the occasion I’m sharing my very, very most favourite vintage dress with you.

I pull this out whenever I feel I’ve plummeted too far into Ugg-ville.

890A5873Believe it or not, with the right jewellery, a belt, and a black or indigo slip beneath it becomes quite boho.

Lady Sybil; “Golly, my corset’s tight. Anna, would you be an angel and loosen it a bit?”

Lady Edith; “The start of the slippery slope”

I can’t wait to chat.

Will you be following along on Twitter? I will-so much fun! Don’t you wish we were watching it with Martyn Bullard from M.D.D.’s?!
