Lady Edith for the Night
I wanted to go for the Downton Abbey look for my daughter's 1920's themed school auction. I was picturing Lady Mary when I was giving thought to my costume, but ended up Lady Edith once I slipped on a hat that had been buried under a sea of sweaters.
Although I love Lady Mary's usual dark palette of blues and blacks, I have been even more impressed with the oranges and rusts that Lady Edith tends to wear.
Because we have had a lot of rain, I decided to not wear my Miss L Fire shoes in the top photo. That was a good call since the Capezio shoes looked much better. The hat was a last minute idea and it saved me a step from having to use my flat iron on my hair. The necklace has been around for as long as I can remember. Somewhere along the line it ended up moving from my mom's jewelry box to mine.
