i’m wearing: f21 dress, jcrew bubble necklace from ebay, kate spade halsey sunglasses, MIA sandals, michael kors grayson satchel & watch, h&m ring and various bracelets.

so yesterday my mom said i looked like i love lucy and today i’m going for more of a mrs. roper look. i have a feeling some of my readers won’t know who that is. =) i call this my mini roper dress. when i bought this necklace, i had no idea that it would end up being the only necklace i reach for now. it just goes with everything and makes everything look cuter…at least i think so. so can we talk about my “sunnies” for a second (i never call them sunnies IRL, btw)? i have a really small head so i always have a hard time finding a pair that fit my face. thankfully the girls over at nordstrom knew exactly what would work for me. these are the first pair of oversized glasses that actually fit and don’t make me look like an alien. i am so excited. what do you think???

    Cute look! The sunglasses suit you.

    I remember the original Milred Roper from the UK Man About The House. I remember re-runs after school.

    First of all, just stop it. You look so gorgeous in these photos…I know I am going to hate standing next to you at FABB!

    Oh, and I loved Three’s Company! 🙂

    I love that dress! And the new sunnies are perfect for you! I have the opposite problem with sunglasses, I have a big head and my face is wide so I always have to find glasses that don’t pinch the sides of my face (it gives me headaches). Haha. Thanks for encouraging me to discuss my body issues in your blog comments.

    I absolutely love those sunglasses. I wear oversize glasses all the time just because I know I look goofy in glasses anyway so might as well embrace it 🙂

    PS- I loved both of those shows. I miss when Nick at Nite or TVLand actually played the classics. I can’t believe the Fresh Price of Bel-Air and The Cosby Show are on there now! What ever happened to Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie!?

    You are waaaaay cuter than Mrs. Roper! I can’t wait for it to warm up enough to put on a swingy dress here. Love the look!

    You are way too stylish to be Mrs. Roper! Those sunnies do fit your face really well! I have such a small, petite face that I buy kids Ray Bans 🙂

    Love this!! You look gorgeous and I’m so all about the bubble necklace. I now have it in two colors and clearly I need it in white, too (my favorite color accessory!).

    I agree with Kimberly’s comment- I’m going to hate standing next to you & her! You look so amazing in these photos and that dress is gorgeous. I think I might need to invest in one of these necklaces.
    Happy Wednesday!

    Mini Mrs. Roper!!! (Three’s Company…love). Actually when I saw you in the dress, my first thought was the Caribbean and how I wish I was there right now… Of course you look amaaazing, and those sunnies are a winner! I have that same “small head/narrow face” issue…lol. Glad you found a pair that work so well, and like this frame color on you!

    come and knock on our door…haha! I loved 3’s company, it was such a funny show and yes the print reminds me of Mrs. Roper but the overall look is only what Mrs. Roper would have hoped to have looked like. Oh I know that Stanley would have approved since I pretty sure you got a good deal on the dress!

    I am so jealous of your Kate Spade sunnies! They look great on you! Oh…and get the Zara shoes!! I lusted them before I finally ordered mine and now I am so glad I did. Going up a 1/2 size up should work for you if your a perfect 7. Love them 🙂
