Style Icon: I'm So Rope, They Call Me Mr. Roper

I may have grown up in the 80's and 90's, but I grew watching up 60's and 70's Tv shows and Movies.In fact the first few years when Casey and I dated, he insisted I catch up on some "can't miss" 80's and 90's moviesr that I had gone too long without ever watching. I was stuck in the black and white and hooked on bell bottoms, courtesy of Nick at Night.
Three's Company was just one of my favorite nick at Night shows. I mean could you ask for better style icons then Janet Wood, Jack Tripper, Chrissy Snow, and Mrs. Rope? I could do a style icon post for each one of the, but for now we will focus on their dynamic as a whole. They were San Diego cool in the 70's and oh, how I loved them. Even if half of Jack jokes went over my head as a kid. The style on the show was just amazing. From Chrissy's knee high socks, to Janet's high waisted pants, their style definitely influenced what I thought was cool. I may just have to bust out a Mumu à la Mrs. Roper.
Take a step that is new...
We will always miss you John Ritter!

Yay for high waisted shorts, pigtails, and stingy landlords.
Special shout out to Chelsea and her zoo trip for inspiring this post.xoxo
