Edwardian Shoes

The original Gibson Girl
The American Duchess has pleased us costumers yet again with her creation of a new Edwardian style shoe, called the Gibson. This is such a cute shoe, perfectly feminine and practical. And who can refuse those darling cutouts? I can easily see this model fitting into my modern wardrobe, too. My favorite? The camel colored ones!

Good News for Downton Abbey Fans!

I've found a great resource for those of you who like to watch Downton Abbey. This blog has a number of other shows available, including Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Merlin, and Sherlock.

1. Go to

2. Click on Masterposts, then Television, and select a show from the list.

3. The episode will play in a Google Docs window, and you'd have the option to download it if you'd like.

I've been watching TV shows from this site for over a month! The episodes are of good quality and consistent, great for pausing and rewinding to look at some of those great Edwardian fashions (:
