This fabulous Fredrick's ad from 1966 came on the back of the TV Prevues insert in the Seattle PI Newspaper. This might have come to my house. And I clearly remember studying these ads closely. I KNEW they were for bad women, certainly nobody I knew wore these sorts of things.  I didn't really know (at age 10) what a 'bad woman' was. But I did feel like I was missing out on something important. Would I ever look like that? Could I ever wear that play suit? 
Turns out I still don't have the answer to that question.
