Lady Michelle

so I told you there would be more on Downton Abbey.

I thought about “touring” the house or discussing the sometimes counter-culture relationships between the downstairs (servants) and upstairs (servees) or putting up large pictures of Thomas and O’brien allowing us to throw runny slop at their pixel-ized faces.

No, instead I’ll opt for my M.O. – obsessing over wardrobes and the girls I wish I looked like who wear them.  All of the daughters have their own lovely style but I’m unoriginal and typical and set my highest adorations on Lady Mary Crawley played by Michelle Dockery (add me to your hate list Lady Edith).  I drool over those dresses.

My absolute favorite of them all…I nearly choked and had to pause the show and snap a picture. Could someone please make this for me?

At first I did not know if I liked Lady Mary Crawley and to be sure there is much in her to sway one in a less esteeming direction.  Yet whether its by sympathy or simply admiration of a strong will, it’s easy to find yourself rooting for her as the series goes on. Do you think so?

I find her to be one of those women that just exudes gracefulness and that’s an effect that can’t just be made up and acted out.  So naturally- i’ve already stalked Michelle Dockery (the actress who plays Mary) and found her- at least in photo- to be just as charming. And gorgeous! And with a fantastic style of her own.

Have that funny feeling when watching the show that you’ve “seen that person somewhere before”?  See if you can  spot the stars of Downton Abbey

I just spent this whole week watching the series and shouting “you are the devil” at Thomas or O’Brien when they were on screen.
