70s Fashion Fiascos

I picked up this lovely little book on ebay here a while ago and wondered if anyone else has seen it. You can tell by my stickers on the front, I sometimes take this to a fair for my buyers to read while they're browsing. But they are strictly NOT allowed to buy it.

It's not exactly heavy on text, but there's enough info to allow readers to identify the main trends and looks pretty quickly.

There's quite a bit of men's fashion too. About which I completely do NOT care.

I've always loved pantsuits, but even at my thinnest, I simply did not have the right shape and height.

Of course there's lots of maxis, which are becoming something of a saving grace these days :)

Big on the braids, aren't they?

Of course no self-respecting 70s fashion tome could be complete without a reference to platform shoes. I love the title they've used here, but the shoes shown leave a bit to be desired.

Ah, yes. 'There is Nobility in Fashion'. Nothing more to be said really, is there?

Funny, I grew up with these fashions, and I have yet to be able to warm up to them. Nothing personal! But I do see late 60's and 70's things at very affordable prices, so now is the time to stock up on all things mod. =)

Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog. That's my book :) Every once in a while I Google to see if there is any activity still floating around. Even though your blog is from last year, I'm still happy to see that someone found my book and had a giggle from it.

Thanks for sharing it with your readers!

All the best -Maureen Marsh
