i feel like either a) i was born in the wrong era, b) i want to be in a movie or show that is set in fancy dress time periods, or c) time travel should be a vacation option cause i want to wear this! (Mary in Downton Abbey)
Downton Abbey, August 2014 Harper's Bazaar UK ~ Lady Mary Michelle Dockery in Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti, Lady Rose Lily James in Alexandra Rich, & Lady Edith Laura Carmichael in Calvin Klein Collection
As seen on Downton Abbey season one women rode sidesaddle and had long dressy riding habits. The top hat was also in fashion at this time but a woman would only have worn one while riding - it was usually for men.
