Scintillating Sears Sleepwear

To be honest, I was a little hesitant about this week's post.  After everyone went bonkers over the swimwear posts, I wasn't sure that we should even broach this corner of 70s fashion.  However, in order to give a proper historical accounting of all the goings on of that era, we must.  I know, I know, such are the burdens and risks undertaken by the blogger historian.

Yes, Kathy fans, you can thank me for this fine pic form Alden's. What you say?  Isn't this supposed to be Scintillating Sears Swimwear?  is this false advertising?  No, not at all dear reader.  May I suggest that if that fact is what you first noticed, then you need to go back and take another look of these smoking hot ladies who are showing us the best of 70s sleepwear.
Besides I couldn't think of an alliteration that goes with Alden's - Awesome Alden's.....oh never mind. 

See, get it? The title is Sleeper Quintet and there are five of them.  How tricky!  Kay is kicking up her heels in that stripped thing (That'll keep you up at night!).  Meanwhile, Karen has, the ever popular for nightwear, leopard print thing going on.  Dottie and the blonde on the left are in the classic little girl look,  Kathy outshines them all in bright neon orange!  Once again this is not from Sears and once again, it is the alliteration problem - Jumpin' JCP Jamies perhaps?

Ahh, how sweet is that !  Kathy looks like a princess.  She is even doing a little curtsey.  They almost had the alliteration thing going here - Penney's Packable... PJ's.  That's it! Perfect!  Now with that problem out of the way, we can move on to something important, like Scintillating SEARS Sleepwear.

And Scintillating it most certainly is.  We have Kathy in TWO babydoll pics and a bonus shot of Shelley Hack.  Not much more I can say about this pic!

And finally I threw in a bonus pic for all you Colleen Corby fans.  Nice!

I hope you enjoyed this first installment of sleepwear pics featuring Kathy and the gang.  Plenty more to come.  What?!?!  No snarky footnotes? Well it's hard to be snarky about Awesome Jumpin' Scintillating 70s Sleepwear! 


  1. Your posts are so funny! My mother worked as a seamstress in a pajama making factory in the 60's and 70's. I owned a lot of flannel!!

    Great photos! I am glad Colleen, Kay and who ever that other chick is, Is With It!

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words! The flannel comment has me working on a new idea. I'll have to peruse the achieves for flannel pics, should be fun! Also I'm glad you caught the "With It" title on the last pic. I had alot of trouble with the blogger software not saving my drafts. I originally had some comments on that in the drafts, but they didn't get in the final version as a result.

  2. I like the top photo Best, Kathy looks yummy! The second photo is a contest for who's wearing the ugliest. They must have had a good laugh shooting this one...keep em coming.

    1. I agree with you on both accounts. In some of these old catalog pics, the models look like they are ready to burst out laughing. I bet there were some great outtakes from those shoots!
