{Almost daily outfit of the day} In the trenches 3.20.12

I want you all to know that I tried very hard to prevent this post from dissolving into a discussion about Downton Abbey, but I am so obsessed with that show that I could not continue without it. I am convinced that Netflix added Downton Abby because they're planning to take over the world while the rest of us get nothing done. If you haven't seen Downton Abbey, the show captures the behavior of an aristocratic family and their meddling but loyal servants against the rigid societal boundaries of the Victorian era. Today's photos, containing my recently thrifted trench coat, instantly reminded me of the intrigue and diabolical manipulation at play between Downton characters. Let's hope the show doesn't kindle a longing for corsets. That would be too much.

  1. I am with you on Downton Abbey. Watched the first season on Netflix then found out the second season had only one more episode on PBS. Fortunately, I managed to see season two on PBS website. ( Unfortunately, I think it is no longer viewable via the website !) Anyway, I find myself channeling the show into my outfits. Today I am wearing a high waisted long pencil skirt with a beaded sweater. And lace up boots. Very Mary. Have you seen the Downton Abbey paperdolls at vulture.com

  6. I have not yet started watching Downton Abbey. Sounds like I better do it when I have a lot of time on my hands, if I'm going to become addicted right away!
