Sears ’75: Sleek Slithery 70′s Swimwear. Sorta…


Sleek and Slithery knit beachwear from page 19 of the 1975 Fall Winter Sears Catalog.

Man, the catalog “writers” for the 1975 Fall/Winter Sears Catalog were so far ahead of their time. Sleek and Slithery is a totally 80′s way to describe a girl in a bathing suit. Or the latest record by Whitesnake.

Speaking of sleek and slithery girls, Episode #59 of the Movies About Girls Podcast is up now and you don’t want to miss it! Our quest to find the worst song ever recorded trudges on, and yours truly imitates a talking dolphin, parrot and gypsy caterpillar (yes, really) during our review of the trippy 80′s flick out of Brazil, Super Xuxa vs Satan. We’ll also run down the weird news of the week with musical interludes by The Hellos, Japan’s surf-rock sweethearts The Pebbles and, the infinite metal power of Fu Manchu!

This week we pay a visit to the blondes on page 124 of the 1975 Sears Spring/Summer Catalog.

And your imagination wants to be used by Shelly Hack. Trust me.

Sears ’74: How Not To Celebrate New Years Eve…

How not to celebrate New Years Eve by the Sears 1974 Fall/Winter Catalog.

Fake fireplace logs and this fake fireplace, from page 1010 of the Sears 1974 Fall/Winter Catalog, lived in my hallway when I was growing up back east. All you needed to start this Santa approved plastic fire was the a push of a button. I distinctly remember the logs made a clicking sound that was supposed to mimic the crackle of a real fire. Which it did not.

Anyway, unless you have your own copy, enjoy your last look back at the Sears 1974 Fall/Winter Catalog, sans sticky pages. Next week we’ll start exploring the Sears Spring/Summer Catalog from 1975. It’s all kinds of right and wrong. Just like yours truly.
