I wanted to be Willona...




Do you remember her? Willona Woods from Good Times. I actually just watched her two nights ago. On that episode, she set Florida straight on trying to get her married off. She said something like "...Florida girl I might be alone, but I am not lonely." Hearing that Willonaism reminded me of my childhood when I dreamed of being her. She would glide into the room in the flyest garments from her downtown boutique. She always attracted the most handsome men, and she was a woman who was wise, secure, and aware of herself. I still admire who she was, I am even smiling while writing this. Good memories.

I even worked in a few boutiques after high school, like Willona. When I was young and single I walked about like Willona, sure of myself and fly. Hey, who am I kidding I still walk around that way, flanked by a loving family.

Anyway, here she is.. enjoy! And don't forget to find the Willona in you and let her shine.

Hey Lady.

Willona was one of my favorites too! I didn't know all those things about her that were on the wiki page. I just remember the fly boots, scarves, jackets. She was a darling.

I loved Willona too!!! I wanted to be her when I was a little girl. She was just always dressed so fabulous and she was so hip. I used to watch Good Times on TV Land when I was back home. She was my favorite character. Thanks for sharing the memories. :-)

Wasn't she though?! Willona was progressive and assertive and sexy and vibrant and feminine. She was serious business!
