Bare-Look Shifts

Shelley in a spread for Sears Spring Through Summer 1974 catalog

Shelley appeared in many spreads throughout Sears Spring Through Summer 1974 catalog. In the spread called "Great Bare-Look Shifts", she modeled two shoulder-baring shifts that were perfect for summer that year.

One of them was a shoulder-baring, as well as back-baring, shift dress with a clingy bodice that had elasticized smocking and a whirly skirt. It had straps that tied at the back of the neck and a back zipper. Shelley looked sexy and ready for the summer heat.

She also modeled a shoulder-baring dress with a bodice that had rows of elasticized smocking in "zingy" colors and topped with tiny ruffles. It was held up with a pair of tie-on shoulder straps. It had a softly flared skirt that flattered everyone. Shelley looked sweet and ready for those warm summer days.
