Downton Abbey Inspired Hair Jewels
After the season premiere of Downton Abbey and the parade of gorgeous hair jewels , I was inspired/resolved to get some more of my own. I have a few nice ones with rhinestones both clear and colored but Lady Mary's feather made me want to see what else I could source. That feather was EPIC. Agree?
The first place I thought to head was France Luxe. Purveyor of a huge number of hair accessories.
Naturally the I click on rhinestone choice and the loveliest I see are $200-400. Really. And really -no. Thankfully they have a sale section and plenty of lower priced items.
The L'Erickson Fern Tigi Boule reminded me of that Downton Feather. It's $62, then at Nordstrom I spied this Tasha Crystal Feather Hair Clip and their Vintage Feather Clip , both $ 38 . These feathers look like winners.
If you want something to channel the Laurel Wreath tiara from the wedding scene , how about this Goddess Tiara also from L'Erickson at $21 . I know, how many tiara wearing occasions are there ? Maybe that means we need to make more of them up.
Over at Scunci's site they have a lovely colored stone barrette clip. No price and I haven't seen it in my stores but all their products are generally inexpensive , usually under $10.
Have any of you got Downton accessory fever ? The combination of being set in 1920 now and a crack costume department are making this season , so far , sartorially splendid.
Unfortunately I've stumbled upon season 3 spoilers, so while I can't wait to watch more, fellow fans, look out.
