Is Peggy Bundy My Current Style Icon?

The other night, I had a startling realization: at work, I am dressed like Peggy Bundy circa 1993. Don’t believe me?  Let’s do a comparison.  I’ve listed the various elements that contribute to Peggy’s well-known look followed by descriptions of my usual work attire.

Peggy vs. Sandy:

Tight black capri pants. The pants that I wear to work typically have volume on top, giving me the illusion of hips, which Peggy has naturally.  I wear my gray or black pants slim fitting through the leg and they cut just above the ankle.  Either that or body con miniskirts.  I’d say this is a match.

Animal print top worn frequently off the shoulders. My work uniform consists of sleeveless animal-print tops and flower-print bustiers.  Yes, for work.  Don’t judge me.  Match.

Bangs with big, wavy red hair. Hmm.  I have bangs and brown wavy hair.  My hair doesn’t have as much volume as Peggy’s but now it’s obvious why I should never dye my hair red.  Match.

Over-the-top jewellery in loud colours. My attempt to wear jewellery to work ended prematurely as my bangles kept annoyingly clicking on the desk when I typed.  Although I now show up to work jewellery-free, I do have an extensive collection of colourful bangles and earrings sitting in my drawer. Semi-match.

Slip-on stilettos decorated with hideous poufs. I wear purple 4-inch heels at work daily.  The hideous pouf is definitely not work appropriate so I’m safe there.  But, given I wear stilettos daily, I still count this as a quarter-match.

C cups.  No match.

In conclusion, based on a number of comparisons, my workday look resembles Peggy Bundy’s quite a bit.  Shame.  Additionally, I share the same birthday as Katey Sagal, the actor who played her. No sense in fighting it.
