Cathy models the 40's midriff or "Sweetheart of the Navy!"



Friends, on this Memorial Day, I am thrilled to be featuring Cathy's latest photo shoot, which combines a 1940's midriff ensemble and our men in uniform.

Please join me as Cathy supports the troops the best way she knows how -- and forgive her.



As always, to see these photos full-size, please click on any image and then, in Picasa, choose "View All" in the upper left hand corner, and "Slideshow." 



Can Cathy still pull off a midriff (figuratively speaking)?  I hope so!

Have a great day, everybody!

  18. Peter,

    We all should thank you, Cathy and her staff (behind the cameras) for such an entertainment! :) I am speachless with the pictures! The outfit turn out very charming and I love it also without the skirt!

  19. Holy ship-to-shore! Three hours? Please, ask Cathy what type of vitamins she's taking. Seriously.
    Cathy: You look sensational and thanks for doing your best for our sailors. Wink.

  20. Cathy can totally still do the midriff. I love the endless combinations with the reversible pieces!
    And I'm sure those sailors didn't know what had hit them when she had finished with them!

  25. Oh my. I think Cathy needs a fan club. She's looking mighty hot in those photos. Well done.

  26. Woo Hoo! the outfit came out really cute, and fits beautifully! Nice job! And a great photo story too!

  27. Love the stitched pleats in the skirt, the floral fabric, the hat ...and Howard and Walter are pretty cute too. Cathy's midriff is great and her legs give Betty Grable some competition. Now that she's followed the fleet, I hope we will see more of her on the town.

  28. BEST Cathy story and modeling EVER! I mean, if that girl can get Gene Kelly to call her... WOW. I need to follow her around for tips!

    Fantastic midi outfit. I can see our girl getting LOTS of use out of this combo! You go, girl!!

  29. Oh my lord that is hilarious! And good for Cathy, it sounds like she had the best memorial day possible! Egg salad? Three way? New outfit? It's every little girl's dream! Seriously, Peter, this is fabulous, and Cathy pulls it off like it's her job, which I'm assuming it actually is...

  30. I LOVED the slide show, so creative!!! Cathy looks stunning!

  31. Oh, now I want to make one too. Boo on you and Cathy!
    Cathy better be careful smoking in her new outfit...I burnt a hole clean through the waistband of my favorite, me-made, sailor-themed skirt because I accidentally dropped a lit match on it.
