As you guys know, at the moment I’ve got a serious crush on Edwardian style (thanks, Downton Abbey) and although I love the lace, the velvet, the beautiful detail and rich fabrics, I know that if you tried to dress head-to-toe Edwardian, it would look rather costumey. But if you love it, there has to be a modern twist to it. And I found that twist when I visited Harriett and Aimee’s blog “Bright Young Twins.”
These two looks are just gorgeous, but with a decidedly modern edge. This, my friends, is how you do Edwardian in 2012! I particularly love the pairing of slacks with a decadent Edwardian top, and love the wild and beautiful hair paired with dark lip color. They really got it right!
And as for my American friends….we’re still in the middle of season 2 on Downton Abbey. The latest episode was last night and good grief….the drama never stops! I loved Mary’s head to toe red velvet traveling jacket and hat but I cant help but hope that Mrs. Bates and Sir Richard meet mysterious and tragic ends. How Anna keeps from snatching Mrs. Bates bald-headed is beyond me… 😉
Happy Monday my friends! And many thanks to Aimee and Harriett at Bright Young Twins for letting me show off their photos! They’ve got amazing and timeless style!~
