I'm Still Around

I know that I haven't been posting lately.  The truth is that the last few weeks has been extremely difficult for me personally as both of my parents have passed away.  To all my loyal readers, please keep checking back regularly.  I plan on resuming the posts soon.

When Life Was Groovy: Mod Fashions for Summer!

It's the early 70s, technically still part of the 60s, so of course there has to be some of that vibe when stepping out during the summer....

Lots of pink on Wendy and you gotta love those groovy sunglasses!! (1)

And everyone step to the left.  Here we have Kathy, Wendy, and.....Kathy again???  Oh the magic of 70s photoshopping!  Those skirts are called "scooter" shorts.  I haven't heard that term before. (1)

And more photo shopping magic, this time with Colleen and everyone stepping forward.  And just in time for the 4th of July.

Yep, be a Yankee Doodle Dandy, in 70s groovy styling!! And Here the short skirt is calledd a pantskirt!!

And more early 70s grooviness in gay broadcloth and smoot poplin!

Looks like a great summer day for a bike ride in groovy late 60s flower patterns....

More mod prints, but I'm not so sure about that hat Colleen is wearing.  It definitely looks out of place for the late 60s!!!

Ring Check!!

 Back from a break to handle some personnel issues and back to the groovy fashions of the 70.  This week we check out what the ladies wore while expecting....

And of course back then, if you modelled maternity wear, you HAD to have a ring on that left hand!  Looks like here all of the ladies have a ring (or are hiding that left hand!)

Looks like everyone here passes the ring check!

Here it looks like Kathy realized at the last minute that she didn't have the obligatory ring and went for the behind the back pose! I mean it's a little silly if you ask me.  Everyone knows that these models aren't actually pregnant in the pics!

Looks like both models went for the "hidden hand" move here!

Even when modeling maternity swimwear, you had to have the ring!!!  The hat Kathy is wearing looks nice...

Yes, very nice!!

The ladybug on the shorts is that added cuteness touch!!

Random Goodness: Uniforms!!

 Time for another post on 70s uniforms....


Not all uniforms were medically related of course.  Take this example of uniforms for, well, uh, I have no idea where these uniforms would be used.  And are they standing on the water???

The hats, the fake background, the woman on the right floating in mid air.  There's a lot to unpack here!!

I'm not sure which is stranger about this one: the Safari So Goody title, or the fake background.  ANd no, Khaki has never been an "In" look.

Continuing with the fake desert background them, we now have aprons.  I guess after the safari, we can have some BBQ!!

And more fake backgrounds!!

Back to the medical unis.  I've said this before, but you have to love the classic nurses hats!!

Yep, the hats were cool!!
