Call it the Downton Abbey effect, but a whiff of Edwardian tweedy country elegance hung in the air this season it was old manor house meets the stylish 21st century girl we saw at a few collections this season. Think english countryside with period element!!!
Picture
note the tweed farmers hat and country jacket also the shoes are very english country!!!
Tommy Hilfiger captured this trend with the country equestrianism looks and tadashi was more a literal downton abbey collection
Ralph lauren and burberry captured this trend in the best way this season. Ralph showed a very literal downton and fabulous collection and burberry showed the more modern advanced collection for this trend. So think country tweeds,equestrian boots,edwardian gowns for evening,winter knits,plaid and a little bit of drama and costume for example top hat and kane or farmers tweed hat can really make this look prefect for the downton abbey effect trend here are some more examples enjoy!!!
 

Look of the day

Todays look of the day is this gucci dark romantic look. The gucci collection was all about the allure of a mysterious and dark women with such a romantic and bohemian flare http://lamaisonme.weebly.com/1/category/gucci/1.html

The clothes are all black but still are very exciting and fabulous there is a tailored masculine almost military jacket worn with ruffled black blouse and long romantic black velvet skirt. VELVET SO ON TREND THIS FALL!!! So this is a great strong and romantic look with on trend and all together fabulous pieces here which really make for a fabulous and a little dramatic look which i love!!!

The look is tailored and soft and all together very simple there are cute pleats and minimalist but very sexy jimmy choo pumps the top of the dress is a tailored tweed which is pretty and elegant! 

Accessory of the day

Omg i am loving the accessory of the day today. It was one of my favorite things from quite a large and fabulous show. It is a gold studded burberry leather black glove which is a stand out piece as i completely fell in love with it on the catwalk!!! It is cool edgy and will i am was wearing the mens version in the front row. These gloves can make almost anything cool,sexy and totally fierce and have that prefect burberry craftsmanship to them!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Do you???   
 
" Burberry is the show everyone comes to london for" i couldent agree more with this statment as burberry knows how to put on a show!!!! For the past few seasons now burberry as built from the ground up a fabulous catwalk and ivites the best stars for its front row this season there were lots of stars such as will-i-am,rosie hufington,mario testino,pixie geldoff,poppy delevigne,will young,kate brosworth the list is endless!!!! The atmosphere at a burberry show is amzing every thing from the runway to the a listers to the hand selected music you dont stop singing for weeks and the amazing fashion. The theme for the colelction was town and country and merging the to of them we also say this at the tommy hilfiger show in new york!!! The english country is becoming a major trend this season desingers such as rag and bone,tommy hilfiger and ralph lauren were inspired by the english country. The show had as always at burberry amazing coats there was the classic trench this time with a plaid peplum flare, tweed coats,velvet coats which i die for!!!! The show opened with very country looks which were styled with period farmers tweed hats that really painted a picture of the english country .There were fabulous oversized utilitarian pockets which made for a very adventurer look which was quite rural and country also the amazing florals at the end of the show painted the picture of a quint english garden and the dresses were really cute. The coats and dresses had widened hips and were belted with elasticated leather bow belt which made a very cute look and defined the waist and the silhouette. There were great seperate pieces which are prefect for your fall wardroe the cute cropped jackets,fabulous ruffled skirts,very cute and quirky animal print t shirts,and the accessories are just amazing leather studded gloves,cute ankle boots and amazing bags which are a great luxry purchase!!!! Pelplum was major it appered in many looks giving them more volume and a chicness to them!!!!  The cropped jackets,coats and peplum skirts were my favorite sperates in this collection as they are very diverse and look amazing on almost anything. I think a major investment i'm gonna make next fall is for one of those burberry coats which are so timeless and can make any outfit look so amazing. The final look was a heart stopping moment!!!! it was a velvet coat with a great ruffle and quilted seam it was belted and looked amazing!!!!! i thought what's going to top this and christopher must have thought so to as it closed an amazing show!!!!! The grand final was another amazing burberry moment outside of the runway water began to sink down the windows and a rain sound affect was heard then floating white confetti was released and the models came out all with a umbrella which is so burberry as they did it last year and at the mens shows!!!!! This collection was so major my london highlight as always!!! I simple ADORE!!!!!!
