Dressing Downton

So a few months back we saw that the clothes from Downton Abbey were making a visit through Richmond and would be on display at the Virginia Historical Society.  Well, of course, being such fans of the show, a few of us wanted to check it out but with holidays and schedules, it was not until the last week or so that we were able to make it out there.  It was just as awesome as I would have hoped though and it was fun to get to see the clothes up close and learn a little about them.

Of course we had to start off with a group shot, its (fron left to right): me, Lila, CJ and Kristi.

A few of the outfits of Lord and Lady Grantham and the Dowager Countess of Grantham:

All in all, it was a fun day with fun friends and we even had time to grab a yummy brunch/lunch afterward.
