Carrots for Michaelmas: Musings of a Catholic Wife, Mother, and Occasional Redhead

My Edwardian Obsession

I truly never write about fashion. However, since Season 2 has done nothing but deepen my obsession with Downton Abbey, I’ve been trying to figure out how to dress Edwardian without embarrassing my family and friends. Because seriously…these dresses.


I’ve been trying to find Edwardianesque additions to my wardrobe. I bought these heels the other day: 

And I found this awesome jacket on Etsy which I didn’t purchase but have just been swooning over.

And I’ve made some pretty decent attempts at Lady Sybil and Lady Mary hair like so:


What do you think of Season 2 so far?

For other Downton-loving hearts, here’s a fun piece including pictures of Downton stars on and off screen.

And here’s a little piece I wrote recently on Downton vs. Mad Men and why I prefer the former.

In other news, Lucy is being very helpful during preparation for Benjamin’s 3rd Birthday Party tomorrow.

Here she is modeling her one fashionable Missoni for Target outfit from her Auntie Elizabeth. Lucky for her she’s got trendy ladies to dote on her since her mother usually dresses her in big brother’s old onesies with, perhaps, a bow slapped in her hair. I need all the help I can get.

Lucy is adorable in her Missoni outfit!

That etsy jacket is…. amazing….
