This Mom's Carpet Matches Her Dress

Ew. But it's true, so back off. I'm a big fan of this Love Boat look. And the stack of Burt Bacarach records behind her.

FAMOUS MOM: Marianne Faithfull

Paging Nicholas Dunbar: I want to be your mom.
See this woman? Here's a list of people she's had sex with:
Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Anita Pallenberg, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Jeremy Clyde (of Chad and Jeremy), Allan Clarke (The Hollies), Gene Pitney, Angie Bowie, Tony Calder, Gerry Bron, Sadia, Chris Blackwell, Mario Schifano, Paddy Rossmore, Jean de Breteuil, Oliver Musker, Hilly Michaels, Howard "Howie" Tose.

"Howie" Tose: you are so lucky you made this list.

Back to Marianne: way to work a floppy hat.


There was no cooler accessory in the 80's than an oversized walkman with a belt hook. Pair it with some mega-shoulders, high-waisted jeans and a son who loves karate and you've tracked the origin of the term MILF.


That mom's got fashionable Jesus shoes on. Even the nun thinks so.

Mom with Bowtie

Vest and a bow-tie? Yes please.

Mom with Competition

"There's no way he can outshine my pint polka dotted peplum jacket...unless he wears his queen of hearts shirt and matching sweater vest."

Tail-Gatin' Mom

I'd like to bring back the barrette that ties together an outfit. Also shirts with those bunched threads at the chest. Also brown cars.

OTHER PEOPLE'S MOMS: The sixties swinger

My mom's the best, but it's time for some OTHER PEOPLE'S MOMS. What follows is a slew of pictures of matriarchs that belong to total strangers. I found them on the internets via google image search [SEARCH TERMS: Mom and Stylish and 1970's and 1960's]. If you find your mom on this wall of fame please email me details about her. I swear I'm not going to hurt her, I just want to talk to her. And look in her closet. And try on her belongings and have them altered to fit me.
