Sizzlin' Penneys Swimwear: Hey Girls! Surf's Up!!

So let's check out the beach scene!!

 Uh well, the gals look great.  But the "beach" seems a little, how woyld we say, photoshopped!!

Yeah, I'm thinking that there's so surf to be had here!!

Well Pennys seems to not have a real beach.  What about Simpsons Sears??
 It certainly look that way.  I guess we had to go to Canada to get a real beach scene?!?

Yep, that's the case.  So I guess that means we should call this post "Hey girls!  Surf's Up, Eh?"

That's 80s?!?! Is It Karen???

Dear readers, I need your help.  I ran across this cover from M&F magazine awhile back.  I always assumed that it was Karen Bruun.  However, when I checked the credits, it said the model's name was Terri Lynn.

Here is the cover....................

It sure as heck looks like Karen.  When I do a search for Terri Lynn, I come up blank.  Of course, 1983 seems awfully late for Karen also, so I don't know.

Dear readers, what do you think?  Any info out there?

K Club Special, Part 44 - Karen Bruun, Part 6!!

Time for another K Club Special, and another feature on Karen Bruun!!

And we'll start off with some groovy knit caps!  Can't beat that!!

 Of course Karen was a mainstay in the Big Book and, well, Little Book catalogs during the 70s.  Here she is in Jewel Tea. Hey wait!  BTW that is NOT Kathy in the inset pic!

 Here we go with the mainstay of Big Book catalogs - Sears!!

 Back to the Little Books.  Here is Karen on the cover of Lane Bryant!!

And another Little Book  S&H Uniforms!!

 Another look from Lane Bryant!!  Very nice!

 SO we'll finish with a couple of Sears pics from 1978 which was rather late in Karen's long career!

Khakis with groovy accessories!!

And one more bonus pic................

Back to earlier in Karen's career, a rare find.  A Saks Pith Avenue ad (thanks to Blue Senshi!)

That's So 70s: Seven Pics of 1970!!

What can me more 70s than the 70s themselves especially 1970?? The question begs the answer!!

And what can be more 70s than those groovy models like Kathy and Wendy!!

Reduced from the 70 Spring Big Book catalog!!

Yep the 70s where a Whole New Thing!

Close up of Kathy and friend from the inset pic.

More groovy 70s fashions. This time from Bellas Hess!!

In 1970 everyone was was asked "What's Next?" after the  wild fashion trends of the 60s.  Sadly, none of these awesome offerings from Penneys were what's next.

These fashions had more of a 60s vibe than 70s, but they still look nice!!

So there you have it dear readers: seven groovy catalog pics from 1970!!
