The Big Book Catalog Series (Part 6) 1972c!

We seem to be stuck on 1972 in our reviews of the Big Book catalogs of the 70s.  Well, there's a darn good reason.  It was a huge year for Kathy - as we'll see.  So, after a detour with Aldens and Spiegel, we're back with Sears and JCPenney - this time the Spring / Summer editions......

Loyal readers may remember way back, way, way back that my very first post on this blog consisted of the following two pics from the Sears SS 1972 catalog..

Let's step to the right.....

And now let's step left.  What?  Are doing a dance here?   Yep those two pics were the sum total of my first post.  I admit that when I published that first post I never imaged that this blog would  have developed to this point!  Since we started with jeans, let's stay with the jeans theme for awhile....

And the dance theme as Kay and Shelley stretch out those long legs and flash those big smiles!

Okay, we're not dancing here, just Colleen and Kathy showing off some 70s style "patch pocket jeans."

They didn't just have patch pocket jeans, they had cuffed jeans also - groovy baby!!

Kay, Joanne, and Shelley in a some snappy jeans to close out our look at the Sears SS 72 catalog.

And what was happening under the 70s "Jean Scene?"  Well, uh, it looks like bowling shoes?!?!?

Penney's got in on the jeans scene also with groovy bell bottoms and patch pockets!

So what about jeans for the guys??
Uggh, I can't end the post on that note!!

Ahhhh, that's so much better!!  Yeah, there are no jeans here, but I had to use some pretty strong medicine to wash out the image of the previous pic.  And what better way to do that than with Kathy and Karen in some classic spring dresses from Penneys!!
