It’s a rare Wednesday post here on the blog, and I have to thank Downton Abbey for the inspiration. I’m a huge fan like so many others (a pilot episode that talks of entail and the Titanic? I’m not sure if any other Austen-loving lady born in the 1980s could resist!) and when I saw certain wedding clothes pop up onto the internet I had to take a closer look. I won’t mention whose wedding it is, in case some of you are still on the earlier seasons and don’t want to be spoiled, but be aware that season 3 spoilers appear after the jump!
Because, my friends, season 3 starts off in 1920, and the wedding gown in question is in beautiful 1920s style. I really hope that Downton Abbey is as popular as I think it is (maybe I’m just surrounded by fans, and 98% of the real world doesn’t care about it) because I want ’20s fashion to make a resurgence in the wedding fashion world.
Let’s look at the outfit, after the cut. Again, spoilers for season 3!
