Downton Chic = High Street Peak?

10 Oct

Watching Downtown last night, glass of wine in hand I noticed just how many of the blouses used were very much like those currently on the high street – its official – VINTAGE CHIC is in!

‘Fashion items which were popular in the early 1900s have been flying off the shelves at Debenhams since the second series of the ITV1 show began last month.’ a company spokesman for Debenhams said. ‘Week-on-week sales of elbow length leather gloves increased by 584 per cent, fur capes are up 220 per cent while sequin capelets – a short cape worn over the shoulder – saw sales rise by 55%.’

It’s now wonder… who wouldn’t want to look like one of the beauties above – Michelle Dockery – Lady Mary, Lara Carmichael – Lady Edith and Jessica Brown-Findlay as Lady Sybil.

I love this look!

I love the modern vintage look too but nothing beats the classic chic of the Hollywood glamour of the 1930’s and 40’s – original garments of course!

Here is a quick pic of me on my way to a casting last week…
Modern Vintage Geek Chic, and one from Pickering 1940’s War weekend Last year…
