Here’s Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery, about to thrust herself into a waiting crowd of British paparazzos after exiting the Burberry Fall 2013 runway show. On her arm is a Burberry Prorsum Handbag from Pre-Fall 2013, and as is perhaps to be expected, her trench and pumps both look suspiciously Burberry. If you love everything Lady Mary touches, you can pick up a Burberry bag with a similar look – the Burberry Brinkley Satchel – for $1,795 at Bloomingdales. Brits are particularly hardcore about their British designers – their Burberry, their Stella McCartney, their Vivienne Westwood, their Erdem…but who could ever blame them?
(SPOILER ALERT!) Downton Abbey fans, can we have a little aside for a minute? I’m freaking out about that last episode of Downton Abbey. I just need to put that out there for all of you fellow DA fans. I really don’t know how well I’ll be able to stick with a show that kills off two major (and well beloved) characters in a single season. Without spoiling the whole season for those who have yet to catch up, DISCUSS.
