Show and Tell: Mary Tyler Moore Inspired

Have you noticed how many bloggers out there do a "look what I wore today" type of post?  They show all their pretty shoes, thrifted and recycled tops and skirts, and lovely accessories.  Well, I was inspired and thought I'd do one of my own.  Here's how I looked when I showed up for work this morning...

As you can tell, I'm wearing my new cable knit Romeo and Juliet tights, a beautiful angora V neck sweater, and ....oh, who are we kidding?  I could tell you that I'm wearing a haute couture Versace gown and you wouldn't know the difference.  -40 degrees celsius today people!!!  OK, deep breath (not too deep or you'll freeze your lungs), only 3 more weeks and spring will be here and somehow all of the mountains of snow around me will melt, I can take off a couple of layers, and hopefully regain my sanity~

And now onto business...last weekend I discovered that I was getting a free preview of the Comedy Gold network.  They ran back to back episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore show all weekend long.  Now, I didn't sit there and watch it all weekend but I did watch a few and I was loving the wardrobes of both Mary and Rhoda.  (Why did Rhoda get such a bad rap?  She had the best hair and had such cool clothes)


So, I got inspired and created a couple of outfits:

I love a pretty caftan top and this fabric was perfect for one.  Can you see the storks?

And I think almost every MTM Show featured at least one maxi dress.

There's a short version of this dress in my Etsy shop.

Do you have any favourite TV shows from the past that inspire you?  Leave a comment below and tell us all about it~

I'll be posting at the linky parties so check them out up above.

I LOVE me some MTM. I used to watch Reruns with my mom as a kid and just liked it. Now as a grown up I see so much more awesome (like you did!) in the fashion, and decor. Love it! Glad there are other MTM fans out there - and Rhoda totally has the best hair!

really loving the purple top. My girls have been watching tons of disney's waverly place and I've seen a shirt similar to this one. Think it would flatter my figure so I may try this soon.

Feel free to stop by and link up to my Make & Share 1st edition Fridays if you like.
