A Downton Abbey Wedding

I'm so thrilled that Downton Abbey is back on!  Fashion, Romance and Maggie Smith's wonderful comments! Finally some romance between Matthew and Mary! I wanted to share some of my Downtown style fashion finds and ideas for a Downtown style wedding.  Which is what I'd probably want for my wedding someday.

The "Ring of Fire" Dress

I think I have a weakness for the 1940’s.  This dress I call my "Ring of Fire" dress.  I find myself reminiscing about the summer and wishing for warmer weather on this cold New England day.  A red lip and dress would make a perfect holiday look.  This dress is silk, but pair it with stockings and fur stall would make the perfect seasonal shift, giving it a more holiday look.

French Couture & French Riviera

While the new site is still being designed, I thought I might as well reminisce about the French Rivera and French Couture.  The French Rivera is warm, wonderful and surreal!  The azure blue water and clear sky are breath taking.  As for couture, Chanel is one of my favorites, as it is classic, elegant and timeless!
The holiday season is soon upon us! If you can't jet to the French Rivera for the holiday season, why not surprise your mom, sister, aunt, best friend with this gorgeous, gently used, navy Chanel 2.55 10" bag that is for sale in my shop!
