Oy Vey! I'm Sylvia Fine

This weekend, I discovered that The Nanny was on Nick at Nite, which is both depressing and amazing (I'm freaking old). While having a marathon sesh of the show, I had an epiphany. I finally realized why I love the glitz and glam and leopard print so much. Sylvia Fine had subconsciously become my fashion icon from when I used to watch The Nanny as a little girl. [Side note: I also credit The Nanny for teaching me acceptance for people of all walks of life. See television can be worth while.]

Exhibit c)
She's so fab.
 And, finally, exhibit d)

I've always been fascinated by flamboyant Jewish women with a lot of pizazz. Now, I finally understand why. It's all coming together like a puzzle, and I have Sylvia Fine to thank.

I'm even channeling her today completely by coincidence (I had already picked out my outfit before this revelation was to be had). I'm wearing metallic gold flats, a grey & black leopard print dress, a tangerine sheer print blouse, a lime green beaded bracelet and a my gold metallic chunky watch. I think I would make Mama Fine proud. Don't believe me, here's a really bad quality web cam shot of the top half of my outfit today. I just need frosted hair.

My dream of becoming a yenta is now in my clutches. L'chaim!



  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE it all! Especially your outfit.

  2. I'll help you frost your hair for Christmas.
