Mini Skirt Monday #108: 100% Pure Minis


We've gotten pretty creative over the years with these Mini Skirt Monday themes.  This time we're going back to the basics.  Consider this the acoustic version of Miniskirt Monday - "Miniskirt Monday Unplugged" if you will.  No fashion ads, no album covers - just a chick and her mini.  Enjoy.

  1. We pause and give thanks for the many anonymous photographers of a by gone era whose passion for black and white picture taking has provided for future generations the simple joy of viewing beautiful women in mini skirts. Without their efforts we would have suffered a great and permanent loss.
    Thank you for this post. I think #56 looks remarkably like Melanie Lynskey (Rose on Two and a Half Men back when it was good).

  2. Next one along, #57, is the British actress Lynda Hayden. Talk about a lost career; she had the looks and onscreen presence to really make a name for herself in the 70s but instead was wasted on tawdry sex comedies and low budget horror movies. There's an excellent miniskirt outfit she wears in the pilot episode of the sitcom "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em" if you want a quality fashion image of that era.

  3. #24 says "I consider both length and girth when I choose my lenses."

  4. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the fall of the miniskirt from fashion led to the obesity epidemic in the USA -- bring back the mini and we all lose weight!

  9. Is that Phyllis Davis in photo #27? She played Bea on the TV show "Vega$" and starred in that early 70's epic film "Sweet Sugar".

    1. Don't think so, as this gal is a little heavier. Still cute, though.

  10. Nice stuff. Simplicity is wonderful. Number 60: The all-American girl-next-door. Great pose, great girl, great outfit, but still more-or-less a snapshot of America at the time. If this was an amateur's snapshot, I tip my hat to his luck. If it's the contrived work of a pro, I bow to his skill.

    1. It's actually from an old yearbook. Not a professional, but still a pro in my book.

  11. Excuse me while I hop into my time machine and propose to #65.
    What a lovely girl and photo...

  12. I had to come back and take another look at this delightful post because there is something about photo #40 that seriously intrigues me. I mean this girl seems to be standing just outside a high school office with an expression on her face that seems to be saying OUCH! Not to mention that her hands are behind her back and appear to be rubbing her posterior. Now it wouldn't have been unusual in the late 60's or early 70's for a high school student to have received a paddling from a school administrator but why in the world would there be a photographer waiting outside the office to capture her reaction? Just curious.

  13. Wow...I'm glad I learned the word "pulchritude" when I was in school......

  15. These are great, a nice reminder of that period when I was young. Might point out that there were lots of minis around then that were much shorter than any of these. Sometimes called micro-skirts or micro-minis,they barely covered the bottom and completely exposed the legs.
    How about some pix of the short-shorts and hotpants of that same era?
