I do not look like Judith Light

So Ian tells me often that i dress like Angela from Who’s the Boss.  And then he goes off in Tony’s bronxian accent, ‘MO..na, JOna…tan……….SamAn……..ta’.  Which is hilarious. 

But saying that I dress like Judith Light is not.
NO way. 
Except I just bought this dress which has shoulder pads  (which i wore this week for the blogger lunch and the RUE party)
 
It’s by Joie and you can find it here.  Yes its slightly 80′s, but not like this:
I always protest and say that I dress more 70′s, less 80′s and he says I dress like Angela circa ’83 but still wearing her late ’70′s clothes. which i find quite specific,  and i don’t totally understand.  and then i remind him that he is a straight man who wears rodeo pants and gold medallions.  everyday. 
So in my defense, here are my latest ’70′s inspired fashion pics.  not 80′s, mind you, the 70′s
Dsqared2 tennis blouse.  and can not find where to buy it for the life of me, so if anybody knows, please help me out.  I need this shirt.
Emersonmade bluebells.  These are on their way in the mail and that makes me very very very happy. 
Buy them here
I bought my first vintage coach purse when i was 16 and wore it for 5 years.  
I’m not a handbag chick, and i hate the branding aspect of them, but Coach did it so well in the 70′s -just leather and the necessary hardware to keep it together.  
I still have the one that i rocked for years, but its pretty beat up. 
So last week in New York I bought this one:
Pure and simple design and function.  and with a bit of brass thrown in there.
And maybe i’ll top it off with this shirt from etsy:
With either these vintage 70′s frye boots (which i can’t find) or these new ($100) wedges from Lucky:
Yep.  The 70′s.  
I hope i proved my point, but pretty sure that I didn’t.
Am I the only one that secretly wants to look like Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver?

 

 

sans the shirt-thing and the hat, but just the overall vibe, right?

 

  1. I saw a pic of you in that dress and I thought you looked incredible. Who cares about the decade when you look that good.

  2. Tanis

    I love that dress! That print is to die for. 70's or 80's… I'm no expert, but I know that I would potentially kill for those Frye boots.

  3. Oh sure, you're a decor stylist AND a snappy dresser! Can you please make over my house AND my warddrobe? And yes, you rocked that dress.

    BTW, next chance you get, go to Coach and have your bag condition and buy the condition to do it at home. That bag will last you 20 years (I'm a Coach whore and former employee!)

  4. It did seem more 70's to me. I think it was the way you paired it with the tights, belt and brown shoes.

    Whatevs you looked hot.

  5. You're so fun. Go on with your bad self.

  6. I JUST saw a re-run of 'Who's The Boss' last week! I could totally hear your friend imitating Tony. So awesome. I also thought it was weird that Angela wore ribbons in her hair at her age.

  7. You have great personal style. I lived through the '80's, trust me, your look doesn't even come close to the train wreck that was 80's fashion. I do secretly long for big hair to come back in style though, I look sooo much better with big hair!

  8. I can see his point, but not the way you think…
    I think Angela was very in style for the time and maybe you dress how Angela would dress now, like if we transplanted Angela from the 80's to present time. ??? I love your style :D

  9. I was in LA a few years ago visiting a friend who was working as a stage hand on a play starring Tony Danza. The night I went to the play Judith Light was there wearing a really REALLY beautiful embroidered black coat. I liked it so much that I considered complimenting her on it, but then some guy pulled the "I'm a big fan of yours" line and I thought maybe just remarking on her outerwear would seem weird. ANYWAY, you take that Judith Light business as a compliment and remind your hubby who has 26 episodes of her own tv show in the works.

  10. I love the 70s and have a few things that are from that decade but most of my wardrobe is 60ish. I'm just drawn to stuff from that era. But shoes with a 70s style are definitely the way to go.

  11. .

    Well if you have to pick a decade the 70's are definitely better than the 80's. And those Emersonmade jeans are pretty awesome. :)

  12. That bag and boots are beautiful! And I don't think you look like Judith Light :)

    It was great meeting you this week in NY! Can't wait to see your show!!!

    xo Jade

  13. Whether your look is channeling the 70's or 80's it totally works! Just loving those divine Frye boots- so fabulous!

  14. I lived the 70s as a 20-something! Still love some of the looks. Unfortunately, I grew out of them. Now working on losing so I can get back there! OH, I'm also a huge fan of black tights! Saw the dress on Lakeitha's blog…LOVE IT!

  15. akemi

    I wouldn't take crap from a man who wears rodeo pants and gold medallions. gay or straight…

  16. Embrace the Mona!!! Who's the Boss was awesome.

  17. I have all these clothes in my closet and I still wear them.
    btw Congrats on the 26! episodes, and your age.
    xo xo

  18. Piper

    Ha ha – not sure they even make shoulder pads as big as back then! Not to mention that hair – yikes!

  19. This is fun. You're fun. And I like your style. And I like your new blog design. The colors remind me of your home. That will be all.

  20. Ruthie

    grrrl, I love me some J. Light. She's beautiful. But I see your argument. Wont disagree w/ you there. Glad you are posting stuff on you personal style, I was hoping. Looking good!

  21. Ann

    No, you do not look like Judith Light, but maybe if you teased and sprayed your hair?

    Love those boots! I snagged a $45 pair of vintage Frye lace-up's this summer at Buffalo Exchange in Brooklyn! I never have luck like that. I couldn't believe it!

    The Dsqared blouse is worthy of a search! So cute! And with those Emersonmade pants!!! Nice.

  22. Although to some it may feel oh-so-far-off, spring is on it's way, and here are the louis vuitton to prove it!
    New Christian Louboutin spring shoes are hitting the shelves and they are colorful, whimsical and playful,perfect for a spring or summer wedding looking for a little jolt of fun! and now discount for Gucci,Which are your faves?
