Downton Abbey

Hi all,

I am one of the biggest fans of Downton Abbey, and I get so excited particularly about the amazing costumes (along with the ever twisting story line) I noticed that Mary Crawley gets to wear a lot of gorgeous hats. Some of the felt hats she has worn I have really loved, and I noticed that the hat I got from Helen Kaminski is quite similar to one she wears in series 2. I managed to get some pictures of her in her fabulous hats.

I love this green felt hat. The pile on it looks really lovely, and the burgundy ribbon gives the perfect contrast. Oh and I love the shape of it to, quite traditional, but with a little flair.

Dramatic scenes at the train station always seem to involve a show stopper hat. This one is a really subtle burgundy brown colour, with the feathers giving it an interesting look.

Aw, Mary looks really emotional here, seeing Matthew off to war. This is the hat that I think holds the most resemblance to the hat I own. I think its because its a similar colour and of a similarish shape/style.
Me in my Helen Kaminski hat, which makes me feel like I am in Downton :) 

Hope you love her hats too!
