This Thanksgiving: The Secret to Togetherness

Okay, from the title you're probably expecting some sappy, sentimental sobriquet about life and it's deepest meaning just in time for the family gathering at Thanksgiving....

Well, not so fast, we like to keep it on the light side with this blog.  No, the secret to togetherness is.....

His 'n Her lightweight action wear from Penneys!  However these couples seem a bit confused by their togetherness since they are looking skyward at...something (except for the guy in the shades.  He's just too cool for this scene!)

Yep, nothing says So Happy Together than matching green plaid wool shirts!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

K Club Special: Kathy and Kay

Two of the stalwarts of the K Club are Kathy and Kay!!!

 And both of them appeared together so many time in the Big Book catalogs of the 70s, like here in JCPenneys.  You gotta love the groovy cap and the gigantic handbag that Kay is sporting!!!

Kathy and Kay again!!  I'm not sure where these pics were taken, but here and the previous pic had some really interesting backgrounds.

Now that's a lot of blue and yellow!!  Aldens apparently went for the starker background look, except for the random basket in the background.

Back to the outdoors again with Kay and Kathy wearing wintertime sweaters!!

K Club Special: Rande Hague, Part 2!!

Rande was one of the "go-to" catalog models in the late 60s and 70s.  And you may remember her for her many appearances in the, uh, "dedicates" sections of those catalogs....

Some great pics, but a big problem is that most of them are in black and white.

See what I mean!!  I don't know what they mean by "flexxtra", better not go there!!

Rande times 8, er, I meant times 4, my bad.  This black and white thing is getting a bit old.

Much better!! A good sampling of your standard undergarments from Penneys.

And from Spiegel too.  Perhaps we've put that black and white trend behind us.

Very nice!!

Oh no, back to the black and white, still a nice pic.  Back then they were called "body briefers."  Now they are know as Spanx.

Well we can't end the post on a black and white pic, that just won't do....

Wow!!  The leopard look cling-a-lings are certainly a colorful way to wrap up this post!!

When Life Was Groovy: Lovely Lounge Wear!!

Back when lounging was a fashionable thing for ladies to do, the Big Book catalogs had all the latest in lounge wear....

 Kathy, Dottie, and friend show us some groovy early 70s lounge wear.

Some how peasant styles go with lounging?!??!  We have some nice stitching on Kay, and a nice bow tie and ruffles on Pia.  But Kathy takes the prize here with the tie up bustier!!

We'll finish this post off with another look from Kathy.  You just gotta love that belt!! It looks like something that a boxing champ would wear!  Very peasanty and very loungey!!

All pics are courtesy of Blue Senshi, thanks!!

More Sweaters!!!

And just in time for the first bog storm of the winter, brrr

Just because it's cold outside doesn't change teh fact that you can still be cute on teh inside, as Kathy and friends show here...

And the cuteness, just keeps on coming.  Who said that winter had to be al dull and drab!!

Pica are courtesy of Blue Senshi, thanks!!

Random Goodness: Uniforms!!!

S&H put out some groovy style of uniforms in the 70s....

Nice pic of Kathy, but it's in black and white, where's the color?

Well here we have the traditional nurse's hat (where did those go?!??!0  And Karen is looking uber cute in those one piece jean shorts, but where did Kathy go???

 Well at least here, we have the color in these colorful uniforms...

 And finally Kathy's back with Karen...

 Karen and Kathy again, but the gal in the short jumpsuit with skirt outfit steals this show.  Is that a nurses's uniform or, maybe, a sexy Halloween nurse costume???  Either way S&H had you covered (or not really covered)!!

 Yawn... back to the black and white pics, but at least they have the groovy hats!!!

A smiling Colleen, Kathy, and Karen show us some short dress uniforms. Nurses certainly had style back then!!

 More styles from S&H!!  What a catalog!!!  I certainly wish they had these uniform fashions today!!

Random Goodness: Bodysuits!!

Bodysuits, because, well, just because....

 A super nice pic of Karen in a bodysuit.

Dottie with friends in some really groovy bodysuits with ruffles and bows!!

 Some more bodysuits, this time the stretch variety!!

I really like the sweater bodysuit, very classy and very warm looking.

Speaking of staying warm in the wintertime....

You just gotta love the bodysuits with matching long socks!!  Now that is getting into the bodysuit spirit for sure!!
