Storybook Fashions

Shelley appeared on Simplicity Fashion News booklet's May 1971 issue, on the "Think of Storybooks" fashion spread. She modeled Simplicity Pattern Number 9354, a "maxi-dress with ruffled hem" and an "elasticized neckline." Her printed maxi-dress was accessorized with a pair of gold bangles, a pair of rings, a matching neck ribbon and her oh-so-effervescent smile.

Shelley reigned as THE Charlie Girl for almost seven years, from 1976 to around 1982. She brought her own brand of effortless class and style, as well as her unwavering confidence, to Revlon's most popular fragrance. Her image catapulted and made Charlie the number fragrance in the world and everyone wanted to be a Charlie Girl. Now isn't that what makes an icon?

Two-Tone Body Suit

Shelley in Sears' 1972 fall and winter catalog
A big thank you to kathyloghry.blogspot.com for posting

Shelley appeared in a spread for Sears' 1972 fall and winter catalog - modeling two-tone body suits. The garment could be worn with pants, tights or skirts. It was a "quick way to achieve today's color-explosion," according to Sears. The raglan-sleeved top came in two tones -  the turtle-necked bodice came in one color and the sleeves came in another - for a "two-piece look with a one-piece ease" the catalog added. And Shelley looked sensational in all the colors available.
