this girl ‘n that girl and that woman

    My 3 sisters and I just loved watching her show and dissected every outfit! Of course, I expect Marlo Thomas’ line will feature up-to-date fashions that are not too trendy, but I would hope that the fabric used is highest quality. As we age, flimsy material that shows every little bump underneath is unflattering. I’m willing to pay extra for higher quality fabric and craftsmanship.

      it’s funny you should mention fabric as that was one of marlo’s concerns. but it passed the mustard with her so i think it’s safe to say it pass your high standards too.

    Oh my gosh Beth, how exciting! Who didn’t want to be That Girl!? Loved the show and fashion!

    Talk about my icon meets that icon. They couldn’t have asked a better woman to interview Marlo Thomas, you did an outstanding job! I, too, watched every episode with my cute mother right at my side. In fact I just shared this interview with her and she is so thrilled about this new line as well.
    I would love to see an active wear and possibly a line of jeans that are modern yet made to look like we’re not trying to be twenty still.
    Well done my lovely friend!

      hi sweet friend! how cute that you shared marlo’s line with your mom. i’m jealous!
      we are on the same page kiddo as far as active wear. can’t wait to see if this is what we’ll see.

    How cool. I always loved That Girl, too. She and Mary Tyler Moore were two FASHIONABLE, modern working women. They were inspirational to all of us from that time-frame. She’s on the right track, with easy to wear pieces, and I agree–active wear would be a smart move. And I still remember watching her and Phil Donahue flirting right in front of us all–he was so smitten, remember!?

    Wishing Marlo every success with this latest venture!

      and i never missed an episode of either show. smart, funny women who had killer wardrobes. what’s not to love?
      we’re on the same page for active wear. can’t wait to see if that’s in the fall collection.
      who could forget phil and marlo falling in love right in front of our eyes? it was adorable to watch.

    Thank you! I love “That Girl” and of course, I was always sitting in front of our one TV waiting to see her. I’m so glad she has started a new adventure and shared in with you. It must have been so exciting to talk to her!

    • beth djalali says:

      the one t.v. that took up the entire room (or so it seemed). isn’t it grand to watch new adventures unfold? what a trailblazer marlo has been, and continues to be. i’m so thankful for dynamic women like her that truly changed a few mindsets along the way.
      thanks for stopping by!
