Always a reader's favorite, Jayne was multi talented in her career including some great pics in the Big Book Catalogs!!

Jayne was the featured model in the first Inside Sports swimwear edition circa 1981!

Fashion as couples Therapy: Aldens Edition!!

Once more the Big Book catalogs of the 70s always had those groovy His 'n Her coordinated fashions to make a statement!

Hoodies, jeans, and muscle shirts Oh My!!  And on the beach too.  Kind of looks like Kathy is holding the guy's hand out away from her.  Sorry dude, that's not a good sign!  And the guy on the left is trying WAY too hard.  And from the gal's facial expression, she's not buying his groove!

Not Kathy, but still groovy his 'n her fashion fun!!  The guy definitely does not suffer from "hover hand" syndrome.  He's for sure going all in, but the gal's reaction?!?  Er, not so positive.

Well this pic is a bit difficult to interpret.  No hover hands going on, but the obvious space between them looks a bit, well, awkward.  Those T shirts just bespeak 70s style - beer and nature.  Not sure that's a match, but in this case I guess so!

Random Goodness: JCPenny FW 73!!

Which means some lovely pics of some of our favorite models!!

The dress lengths still tended to the mini side, which was nice!!  So who is that in the small inset pic??
I do believe that it is none other than Kathy going incognito in a wig!

Sizzlin 70s Sleepwear: Italian Style

As readers of this blog well know, Kathy had a stint modeling in Italy.  Let's check out that 70s Italian sleepwear, shall we??

 That's a busy background they got going on there.  Makes it kind of hard to see the models!  'm going to give it a shot translating the Italian without looking it up. "La moda-notte" must mean "the night fashion."  Not sure what "vuole" means.  "i colori pastello" is probably "and pastel colors." 

 Kathy in that blue outfit almost dissapears!

I think the model on the left also was in catalogs in the US.  Am I correct?


(1) These pics are courtesy of Al from Italy.  Thanks! There are from a catalog called Euronovo FW 75.

(2) Okay, okay my translation attempt wasn't too bad.  The all knowing internet says it means "Night fashion wants the pastel colors."
