I mean, have you seen the show lately? Almost everything she wore on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) could be worn today. Lovely, flattering, classic shapes and styles. I was searching for a picture of her in the capri pants (which turned out to be cigarette pants instead) and I discovered an amazing source of saved jpegs from the show, all saved on photobucket by LauraPetrie675 here.
Yes, a collection of 366 screenshots!!
Laura Petrie is well known for her cigarette pants, which caused a sensation, housewives nationwide were soon wearing them:
I covet her simple tops with their subtle details or optical patterns. She rarely wore shirts with buttons and I believe these were pullovers or fastened in the back.
What do you think about this, doesn't this top look like it could be a Pierre Cardin knock-off?
LauraPetrie675 is also working on another album of general 60s fashion which already includes images of Mad Men, Emma Pillsbury, Ali McGraw and I Dream of Jeanie.
Thank you, oh thank you, LauraPetrie675!
Coming up...the dresses!
