August is my birthday month and this year is a milestone – I turned 50! I started thinking about what I wanted to do to celebrate last year. I’ve had a lot of ideas but nothing that checked all the boxes of fun & exciting and within budget. At the last minute, I booked a solo trip to NYC to see the Downton Abbey Exhibition which runs thru Sept 3rd. One of my long-term goals for O+R is to add a collection of vintage-inspired dresses that are wearable for today so seeing the costumes from the show up close and personal was my kind of thing.
The exhibit features stage sets, costumes, objects, and a lot of background information. Here are a few photos. You can view all the ones I took on the O+R Instagram page.
