If you’re like most fans of Downton Abbey, you can’t get enough of the addictive British drama, Season 5 of which has started running in North America. Fortunately for devotees who not only want to watch the series but also live it, there is enough to-the-manor-born, waning-heyday-of-the-gentry merch out there to fill a country pile. To emulate Lady Mary’s perfectly prim appearance, for instance, Needle & Thread’s decadent beaded gown pairs quite ripplingly with Lulu Frost’s 1920s-inspired necklace. Wear them while you’re serving tea from Sur La Table’s elegant Cambridge Collection teapot. For jotting down all those dry, Dowager Countess-esque ripostes you come across, Archie Grand’s cheeky Nobles notebook is just the thing. And what evening out, we daresay, is complete without a gem-encrusted headpiece?
