K Club Special Part 37, Joan Paulson!

Joan Paulson was a mainstay in the Big Book catalogs during the mid 60s into the early 70s  Her career overlapped that of Kathy's by a few years.

Yep, that's Joan giving the boot to a fallen down Kathy.  Hmmmm, Perhaps there is more here than meets the eye??  After all, Joan was the blonde catalog model of the 60s and Kathy was the blonde catalog model of the 70s. Some jealousy perchance?!?!? (1)

Nobody is getting kicked around here.  Joan and Colleen seem very interested in what is off camera to their left.

And now all the models are looking down at the ground.  At Joan and Kathy seem to have made up. and there's another Kathy, Kathy Jackson on the right.

Joan looking very groovy baby in a 1971 Sears sale circular.

"Hey buddy!  Turn that fan down!  Joan and Kay are about to get blown away!"

Both Kathy and Kay in wigs in this pic from Bellas Hess.

 And now Joan is in a wig!

And now we are back to Kathy in a wig. What is this? A wig post?!?

 Joan with Shelley Hack!  And she's in a wig too!!

 Joan with Cay, no wigs here!  Finally!

And finally, three of the cutest blonde models of all time in one shot: Joan, Karen, and L Kathy. What a great pic!

On Pinterst, there is a page called My Model Mom (2) that is about Joan Paulson, and has a ton of pics.  I thought about posting some from this site, however, most of them are all over the internet so I'll just post two.

 That's Sooooo 60s!

(2) I almost made "My Model Mom" part of the title of this post, but I was afraid that people would think that she was MY mom, which she isn't.

The Little Book Catalogs - Jewel Tea!

Many, many times, we have featured the Big Book catalogs form the major retailers of the 70s such as Sears , Penneys, Spiegel, Wards, etc.  But there were a whole other level of retailers vying for the consumer dollar back then.  And Jewel Tea was one of them!

But although they were smaller the Little Book catalogs had all of our favorite models of the 70s like Kathy along with Colleen and Joanne.

More top models of the 70s in Jewel Tea!  Looks like the gang is all here!

And it wasn't just fashions, no, no, no.  Jewel Tea carried all the groovy items of the 70s like lava lamps, black light lamps, and my favorite the starlite action mood lite!

Maybe we should get back to the models like Kathy and Kay.

And that deserves a close up of Kathy!

This pic just simply screams 70s.......

Even the clothes had those groovy 70s colors!!

Jewel Tea had all the latest fashions for the woman of the 70s!!

A really nice pic of Kathy and a smiling Colleen!!

Okay, there is one Jewel Tea catalog that got away.  It is from 1974 and I only have one pic from it....
Yeah I'm on the look out for this one.  I'll get it eventually!!

Jewel Tea went out of business in 1981.  For a brief history of the company, check this out......

What Sort of Man Reads the Kathy Loghry Blogspt?, Part 4

What sort of man reads the Kathy Loghry Blogspot???

....His eye contact alone technically counts as a first date.  Always perfectly attired, even when rehabbing the windowsill of the hottest babe on the planet (key ring be damned!), his smirk seems to say "Yeah, I was manspreading before manspreading was a thing!"  And judging by the look of his babe hanging on his every move, that windowsill repair just may have to wait for another day!

K Club Special, Part 36 - Colleen Corby, Part 5!!

Hard to believe it, but it's time for another look at Colleen Corby and her illustrious career!  This is the 5th time we've looked at her career and you may notice that I always try to feature in early August.  The reason?  It's her birthday later this week!

Colleen started to model in the early 60s and continued well into the 70s.  Here she is from JCP in 1977!

Despite being one of the top models of her era (and arguably the best known of the K Clubbers), her pic still popped up on odd places, like here on a Sears sales circular!

Okay, confession time here.  Colleen was one of my favorites from the catalogs along with the other K Clubbers (Kathy, Karen, and Kay.)  However, I didn't know she was such a well known model until later.

In fact, she was the first catalog model whose name I learned.  I haven't found all the names out yet - like the blonde her with Colleen.

 Colleen in Wards!

And Wards again!

Colleen sandwiched between two regular Big Book catalog regulars - our own Kathy and Karen! (1)

Again with Kathy! (1)

So we've seen all catalog pics so far.  But Colleen was extremely popular in other print media of the 60s and 70s.
Very, very nice pic of Colleen.

Colleen did some modeling with her sister, Molly.

Strange pic of Colleen with some hounds! (2)

Colleen from Sears in the 60s! (2)

And Penneys from the 60s too! (2)

And the last two pics are from 1965 where Colleen did some ads for Saks!

Again for Saks!

Colleen is still probably one of the most popular , if not the most popular, and well known model of that era.  The abundance of pics and fan websites out there attest to that!


(1) Yeah I got these off the internet from somewhere, but not sure where.  I apologize for not being able to give proper credit.

Classic 60s...

Somehow I think that Kathy, back in the day, could have been the subject of this song....

Random Goodness: Shirts, Skirts, and Assorted Miscellany, Part 5!

Summertime is Random Goodness time!  And, oh my, my, my, did the shirts and skirts of teh Big Book catalogs shine!!

Well, and the Assorted Miscellany too!  I guess tunics would fall into that category.  Kay, Kathy, and Karen show us the best of these fine 70s style!

What's the Big Idea??  Well these groovy skirts and shirts from Aldens were a pretty big idea if you ask me!

Very nice shirts here.  Nothing very Random, just nice!

Nice shirts, nice skits and very nice bandannas shown by Colleen and friend.

Kathy, Barbara and friend are showing off the mid length skirts.  Well, this is from Simpsons Sears so maybe they needed a little bit more coverage up there in chilly Canada.

Classic mid 70s shirt and skirt combo from JCP!

"Soft Shirting" is looking mighty fine!

Some more shirts from JCP!

Knit T shirts.  Not Random but definitely full of Goodness!

I actually don;t know why I included this pic!

Kathy, Barbara and friend showing off some more "mix 'n match" styles from Simpsons Sears!!

Well, we've seen a lot of shirts and skirts, but not much Assorted Miscellany........
Whoa, how'd this guy get here?!?  That is about as Random and Miscellaneous as you can get!  And you gotta love the dog!  He's totally focused on the fish!!
