Fashion Icon Friday: Mrs. Roper


Yes, that's right. I said Mrs. Roper - a la that 70s smash hit, Three's Company, when I fell in love with John Ritter and wished I was Suzanne Somers. Girlfriend could ROCK a side pony. But when Amy suggested that we feature Mrs. Roper for Fashion Icon Friday, it just worked. I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but follow me here for a moment.

White woman orange 'fro, giant kaftans and mumus, twisty turbans, and fab-you-lous costume jewelry - does it get any better?


For the love of Audra Linley, there is even a clothing line INSPIRED by Mrs. Roper - you can find it here. Check the cutie patootie Helen dress in the line:


I don't think Amy and I are the only ones inspired by Mrs. R either - here are some of my favorite Roperriffic modern day dresses:


The smashing Ramona LaRue's horse kaftan, found on Planet Blue.
P.S. - The smashing/designer of Ramona LaRue actually commented on the earlier post I did on her - who knew she would even find our humble blog???? Ramoner - if you come across this one and have a surplus of said horse kaftans lying around in a small, please feel free to send any extras our way....

Matthew Williamson for H&M - If this doesn't scream Mrs. Roper, I don't know what else does. You can maaaaybe find this lil number at your local H&M, or with the price jacked up several hundred clams on eBay. Again, anyone wishing to rid themselves of one in a small can contact me here at MerciBlahBlah. Thanks - Shan

I'll admit it, I love romping around in my Roper inspired caftans and jewels.

Let's just pray my husband doesn't start emulating Stanley!
