Mini Skirt Monday #59: Catalog Minis

Simpsons-Sears Fall-Winter 1972 (014)

The post title says it all here: mini skirts found in old catalogs.  Those of you that've been following along here - what years would you most likeily catch mini skirts in catalogs? Answer: 1968-1973; you may find them here and there in the adjacent years, but not in any real quantity in the U.S.

So, sit back and enjoy another round of high hemlines courtesy JC Penny and Sears.  Enjoy.

Please note: a few of these images are reposts.  I hate to reuse pictures, but the last time I posted some of these catalog scans, the shitty slideshow software made it a pain to view them.  So, here they are again, minus said shitty slideshow software.

  1. Some of these pics -- at least the first 4 -- are from Sears' Canadian subsidiary, which from the 50's till the 70's was called Simpsons Sears.

  2. Interesting. I wondered what the "Simpsons" Sears thing was about. Thanks for clarifying that.

  3. Such a time machine when teachers & classmates a like would be dressed in mini skirts at school at a time when blue jeans were first being allowed to be worn at school by boys.
