New York, this is your last chance…

I’ve been spending countless hours watching a few classics on Fancast lately. Where else can you enjoy the choiciest episodes of Alf, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Andy Barker P.I., Rhoda and the entire  Arrested Development series? For free? Nowhere, that’s where else.

I could write volumes on the sheer hilarity of Andy Barker, Always Sunny and Arrested but I’ll spare you… for now. Right now I’d like to talk to you about Rhoda Morgenstern.  Without Rhoda, nobody would have found The Nanny nearly as comical.  Without Rhoda, Mary Richards would have been just a cute nervous wreck. Without Rhoda, I wouldn’t have anything to blog about today we wouldn’t have these fabulous and oh-so-seventies looks to ooh and aah over today.

rhoda&joeI really wish you could see her fabulously tailored, high waisted slacks in this photo.  She always looks so put together! Loving the polka dots with the argyle!

rhodaNever afraid to make a statement, Rhoda pairs a kerchief with her feminine skirt suit, wide lapels and multi-strand pearls.

rhoda2For the Knicks’ game, Rhoda dons her fitted jeans, an orange turtleneck and snappy blazer.

rhoda3Here, Rhoda looks oh-so-business chic in her sweet skirt suit and baby pink blouse.  Gotta love that wide lapel.

rhoda4In her slightly (very slightly) heavier Minneapolis days, Rhoda rocked a bolder bright red sheath dress complete with multi-strand gold necklace and a slick bun.

I would love to spend hours coming up with Rhoda-inspired looks and taking screen shots of her fabulous outfits from the online episodes but I don’t have that kind of time I’m just too lazy.  So, in lieu of me doing any work, please watch the hilarious episodes and appreciate her polished but relaxed 7os vibe.


In other Rhoda-related news, I might just be the non-Jewish version of Brenda Morgenstern.  It really is uncanny how much she and I have in common.  Sad but uncanny.

Ps. Terrific is a terrifically underused word these days.

Photos from here.



  1. ::sigh:: I loved Rhoda. She seemed much more attainable than the ever-perfect (but also lovable) Mary.

  2. If you’re Brenda, can I be Rhoda?
