This Summer, Beware The Beach Devil





















Jezebel posted an excellent spread of spring fashions from a 1972 Sears catalog.

This acrylic and polyester Hooded Beach Shift brought to mind the 1973 film, Don't Look Now.  Everyone always wants to talk about the graphic and creatively edited scene from that movie, starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland, and fine, but I find it difficult to have a serious conversation about the art and the sex because there is also an evil little red troll, following the couple  around Venice, which never gets explained.
