Just a Girl and her Platform Shoes, 1973.

September 2, 1973.  This paper doll was drawn by Jackie DeRosa and was used in a newspaper article about how colorful Fall fashions were going to be that year.  The article said to color this paper doll's clothing in bright colors.  I was a preteen in 1973 and if the Houston Post had printed this doll I would have had my crayolas and scissors in hand.  This paper doll, like the teenagers and young women I knew in the 1970's, is funny, zany and, refreshingly, nary a profane word drops from her lips.
