It's a Plaid, Plaid (Wintry) World!! - Part 3

Oh no, not again. Just when you thought the fashion world of the 70s was safe with its earth tone drabness, 60s hippie-ness, and disco craziness along comes the plaids.  Like some kind of alien, other worldly presence, they splashed across the fashion scene when you least expected them.... in Winter coats!!(1).   'UM-M" indeed, more like "OH-NO THE PLAIDS ARE BACK!!"(2)  And they threaten to take over the fashion world!!

Oh dear, apparently even Kay has fallen into the clutches of this plaid madness.  However, it appears that Karen has escaped the plaids for now.

Whoops, spoke too soon.  Here she is decked out in the plaid-iest of coats complete with plaid belt!! Colleen seems to be a bit concerned about all the plaid madness as she tries to quietly exit the scene.

Not so fast!!  Even she has succumbed to the Plaid, Plaid World.  Will this plaid madness cover the entire planet?  Is there no escape?

Well, it seems that Colleen has temporarily escaped the clutches of this alien plaid abduction.  And she appears quite happy about that!  The gal on the left, not so lucky.  You can see that faraway plaid, plaid stare in her eyes.

Yep here's another model assimilated into the plaid, plaid cult.  Shelley appears to be very content without the plaids, perhaps it's the beret.  Of course that's a 70s fashion madness all its own (however, "It's a Beret, Beret World" doesn't have the same catchy ring to it.)

Thankfully, Kathy seems to have escaped the clutches of the plaid, plaid madness engulfing the fashions of 70s Winter coats.  The other models are not so lucky!!

Once again I spoke to soon!! Kathy has again fallen prey to the plaid madness.  Oh when will this plaid insanity end?? (2)

With a nice, non-plaid, close up of Kathy modeling those groovy white mittens!!  A timeless fashion statement that has brought a merciful end to the madness of "It's a Plaid, Plaid World."


(1) For those of you keeping track, this is Part 5 of Winter Wear, as well as Part 3 of It's a Plaid, Plaid World.  I couldn't work all of that into the title of this post.
