Downton Abbey Finds: Season 1 Episode 6

I’m afraid I have a bunch of things to show you for this episode.  This is the one where Sybil gets hurt in the fight at the Election Count.  Another good Sybil episode.

Lady Edith puts her moves on Sir Antony and eventually, he reciprocates.  She does have the cutest short hair style.  The curls on this bob are sophisticated and flattering.  Styling short hair fancy can be hard but this is a totally do-able hairdo. Also notice how she’s wearing the same “frock” I commented on in Episode 3.


Sir Antony is a bit taken aback by Edith’s boldness but the real star in this image is that piece of spectacularly inlaid furniture behind him. I also love the vase on a plant stand with flower in it. That’s really a great way to add some pizzaz to a space that doesn’t quite have room for a piece of furniture.


Sir Antony and Edith go for their drive in his “Open Rolls Royce” and Edith sports cute hair, a cute hat, and the most darling linen jacket. I’d have to have a ladies maid just to keep it ironed but it is a beautiful coat.


Here is the Dowager Countess being told that the rumors about Mary are true. She looks shocked and appalled but she has a super cool mantle clock and a gorgeous Cameo at her throat. I love me a good Cameo.


Cora is hearing about the rumors in London from Carson but what I really love is the colorful embroidery on her dress. I can totally see sheers with embroidery being an up-and-coming fashion trend.


That’s all I’ve got for you today but episode 7 is coming up and it’s after the london season so we should be seeing some new clothes in the rotation.
