What I Wore

I think the first woman who I thought was dressed perfectly every day, was Laura Petrie. Now some of you may know exactly who I am referring to, but for those of you wondering who this fashionable woman is, here are a few photos of the famous Laura Petrie
For those of you still don't know who this fashion icon is, Laura Petrie was a character on a television show that originally aired from 1961-1966. The Dick Van Dyke Show, starring the incomparable Dick Van Dyke as Rob Petrie, and co-starring Mary Tyler Moore as his wife, Laura, was one of my absolute favorite shows when I was younger. I did not watch the series when it originally aired (I am not quite old enough to remember what I watched in 1966), but I started watching reruns as a preteen and became a big fan. Laura was a USO dancer who met Rob, got married and became a stay-at-home mom. She dressed unlike any woman I knew, stay-at-home mom or not. If you notice the pants she is wearing in the photos here, you will understand why I think of Laura anytime I wear a similar style of pants. Luckily for me, this style of pants is now easy to find! But, can you imagine how difficult it would have been for me to find, much less wear, in the late 1970's when bellbottoms were all the rage? Do you remember who the first person was that you thought of as someone who dressed perfectly?
