That Girl!

How many of you out there remember the TV show, That Girl?
It starred Marlo Thomas (most of you might know her better as Rachel's mom on Friends or Phil Donahue's wife) and ran from 1966 to 1971.
I didn't really ever watch the original series, but have seen it in re-runs.
I have always loved her style, even when it wasn't in style.
This dress totally reminds me of something Marlo might have worn on that show.
It definitely gives off that 60's vibe. 
 With the classic shift shape, the drop waist
 and the color blocking with the geometric design.
I just love this dress and in fact when I was walking around with it,
 two people asked me where I found it in the store.
I picked this little number up at the brand new
 JCPenny Concept Store 
 that just opened here about 3 weeks ago. 
 I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the store and you will see a few more items I picked up there in the near future.

Do you know who Marlo Thomas is?
Have you ever seen an episode of That Girl!?

I have never heard of That Girl, I'm afraid! But I love your dress, it definitely has a 60s Mondrian thing going on and I love the block of green in there with the monochrome. With the knee high boots, you look ready to go-go! xxx

I have never heard of the show, but your dress reminds me of something Twiggy the model would have worn. Like the mod look. So cute! Heather

I watched the show religiously. I wanted her hair! Alas my curly hair just wouldn't cooperate, but I tried!
Great outfit.

I haven't heard of Marlo Thomas or That Girl but if she dressed like you, I would love her! This dress is so vintage esque, you have a JC Penny concept store and we don't even have a JC Penny, not fair!
