She’s a creative, mother, collector of fake food, ad-boss, wife, hard-grafter, carer, blogger, collector of black Pilot fine-liners, cartoonist for The New Yorker, romantic, realist, psychologist and collector of small plastic kid’s toys. I love her.

Cool as hell
She’s pretty hot there at age 23.
She doesn’t look bad for 70 👀 (/s)
So coooool! I work in advertising so that makes this even cooler to see
Reminds me Uma Thurman, and Winona Ryder
What do you mean by collecting fake food??
Uma Thurman vibes
She looks cool as shit
Mom looks top shelf.

What’s the car outside?
The epitome of big city career girl making life happen for herself.
Nice camera on the desk
The fourth Charlie’s Angel.
I love pre computer old school graphic design. Wildly inefficient compared to what you can do with photoshop, but mechanical, methodical and intentional.
Ur mom is a smoke show!
Our mom Kate
I see Humphrey b bear! Is she an Aussie that worked for the New Yorker? Or an American that loved our Humphrey? 😆
Was there many fat people back in the 70s ?
Kate is a boss!
The reddit hot mom pipeline continues unabated
This is actually a cool mom! Her outfit is still stylish today
Your mom sounds amazing. I want her jeans.
Perfect fitting jeans!!
Spend as much time with her as you can. My mum turns 90 next week.
Looks like a promo shot for a TV show about a young, idealistic woman that’s ready to take on the world. Mary Tyler Moore vibes. This picture is great. Thanks for posting.
Cartoonist for the New Yorker? That’s a big deal! Please share a cartoon or two?
The outfit is giving me a Suzi Quatro vibe. Totally cool.
Cool drafting board
Cool Kowa Super66 camera
Cool window view
I wonder if she knew she was living the good old times.
That outfit would work today ! Classic
Looks like a 1969 Mercury Cougar XRY in the background. Could be wrong.
Great pic. Started high school that year. The fashion was real.
Ugh now I wanna rewatch Mad Men…again
Was her boss named Charlie?
Is your name Stacy by any chance?
That outfit is amazing
Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
In whatever comes our way
Yeah, darlin’ gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space…….
That is a great, great photo.
I started in the ad business about 10 years after your photo was taken (just before computers took over) and it really takes me back.
Thank you for posting it.
If this is 1976, I pity her for the kinds of come-ons and pick-up lines she’d have to hear from hopeful dudes every single day.
Wow she looks good for 70
I love how the sub is really just “skinny chicks have always been cool” and”…
Fucking sugar in everything is killing us.
She looks amazing for 70:)
Where did we go wrong? I wonder if we can pinpoint the series of events that led to the hellscape we are living in now
She looks like Olivia Wilde. I love it!
