An Ode to M.A.T.H.

In a quest to sate Helga!s thirst for Man About the House images I put together this ensemble that could easily have been worn by the blonde character Jo.

Jo would wear lots of maxis, bell bottoms, big a-line skirts, oversized sunnies, shoulder bags at hip level, and of course, massive platforms.

Like many others I am a big fan of the show but had forgotten about it until Helga! mentioned it. I'm sure I'd look at the clothing through different eyes these days, now that I sell vintage. I'm very tempted to buy the whole series on DVD- even though the Robin character wasn't what you'd call sexy, there was definitely something about him that I liked.

What do you think of my straight hair? I don't do it very often but am always so glad when I bother, it feels so light and I can leave my hair down for a change.

Straight hair. Happy face.
Ted Lapidus. Happy eyes.
