Living in Tulsa and Southern California Makes For An Interesting Life - Especially After All Those Grey Years In Seattle
Friday, March 1, 2013
Remember Marlo Thomas in That Girl, the gentle sitcom about an actress trying to make it in New York? She had a nice apartment, sweet boyfriend, and terrific clothes. I can't remember who her costume designer was, but I would sketch every outfit. I'd try to figure out how to recreate my favorites - some of which I did. Like that coral dress with the white bands. But that dress with the sleeveless coat was just impossible. The sleeves were pieced, not printed. Just too much! And there it was this morning, on MEtv. After Perry Mason but before Kokak. Now if they would just run some MacMillan and Wife, I could swoon over Susan St James' clothes, too. I copied one of her coats in white denim with a fake fur lining - hooded and zipped up the front. Glad I don't have a picture, because my memories of that coat are so much better than it could ever have been.
