Revisiting 1977 with JC Penny's

This blog entry is for anyone who was being cool in 1977. I nearly laughed up a lung. Here's a teaser. Oh, and make sure you're not eating or drinking anything.

How lucky I was to be living outside the country in '77. Best I could come up with back then was a very fashionable chadoor.

Lynn- that catalog was hilarious! How did u find that?

My aunt and uncle had a table set like that in their lake house which was a very rustic log cabin on the lake. You could open the top of the seats and they stored games in them. I actually thought that set was neat.

The CLOTHES! I remember adult relatives wearing things like that. UGLY!!! The woman with the green top looks like a hospital volunteer. I was a gap girl or pretty dresses and definitely not that stuff...BUT my husband and I did have matching ski sweaters! That was fun though. I just saw them in the attic and they are in mint condition. :)

That was fun Lynn. :)

Oh and the people on Love Boat wore that stuff. YIKES! Big plaid sports jackets...scares me. Or looks like clown clothing.

Thumbs down for the designers.
