Style Maven (See Jane Find an Obscure Icon, part IV)

I'm guessing most of you were on the younger side when you watched Full House back in the early 90s.  I always thought I was closer to Stephanie's age, only to find out I was actually a year and a half older than Michelle in real life (didn't they seem like such babies for a long time?).  I really loved this show growing up.  I longed to have DJ's perfectly teased bangs or Stephanie's aptly-time one liners (e.g. 'how rude!').  However, my ripe, young mind didn't seem to grasp the fact that Aunt Becky had it going on.  Think about it:  she was a high-powered career woman that managed to balance a (totally hilarious) family all while being able to go home to Uncle Jesse (have mercy).

Not just your average working mom:


*clockwise from top left

  1. Aunt Becky does the classic, white button-up.
  2. 70s style shirt + black choker = 1992.
  3. She's got a family, flourishing career, and a hot husband...they can't all be wins.
  4. "YES, my shirt does look like a paisley bathing suit at J Crew, doesn't it?"
  5. Billow blouse with a pencil skirt.  Thanks for dictating my work style, Aunt Becks!

Maybe you didn't process Aunt Becky's style when you were a kid--I know I didn't.  But perhaps now that you're a littler older and wiser, you'll appreciate her style now while watching Full House reruns on TV Land.

Oh my gosh! I was actually just thinking about that when I watched a rerun a few weeks ago. She really was fantastic!

Didn't really think about it till you mentioned it now, but I always thought Aunt Becky was really pretty. I'll always remember that one episode where she was teaching one of the girls how to put on make up, she said, "the secret to wearing make up is to make it look like you're not wearing any."

Aunt Becky was the coolest person ever. She really was. Lori Loughlin is absolutely stunning; some of my all-time favorite Full House moments included her!
