Mini Skirt Monday #118: Leg Crossing


“Girls with their legs crossed, girls with their legs not crossed, girls with terrific legs, girls with lousy legs, girls that looked like swell girls, girls that looked like they'd be bitches if you knew them. It was really nice sightseeing, if you know what I mean.
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

As a sort of follow up to the "Upskirt Prevention Pose" Miniskirt Monday post, here's yet another camera-safe posture for ladies in minis: the legs crossed pose.

You might say this post has it all: vintage babes, miniskirts, and of course those beautiful gams.  As the wise sage, Redd Foxx, once said: "A girl's legs are her best friends... but even the best of friends must part."

  1. WTF is Miss Buckwheat doing in that group in #24? Man clothes, man leg-cross, and that freak-out on top are sucking all the hotness out of that photo.

  2. Larry Page! He used to be the manager for the Kinks & also had a series of easy-listening instrumental albums that aren't too bad.

  3. i think u should put another four hundred pics up to really make your point. im just bustin' yer chops, i like that there are so many pics, even tho it's miniskirt monday and each pic has the leg-cross, it's fun to see all these slices of life from yesteryear.

    1. Yeah, I think I'm pushing the envelope on how many pics to include in a post. I've asked readers to give feedback if they'd prefer less, smaller images, etc. Not much response.

  4. It's kind of funny seeing this. Back when I was thin enough to wear miniskirt mom always got on my case if I crossed my legs at the knee. She told me that a proper lady crosses her legs at the ankle and keeps her knees together. Without using the word "slut" she basically said any girl who crosses her legs at the knee are sluts.

    I never got that. But that's my mom for you. I love her but sometimes I just wonder what's going on in her head.

      With my mother it was pierced ears: "Only gypsies (*wince*) and prostitutes pierce their ears."

    Anybody know where the hospital is that employs the hard working nursing staff featured in #61. I suddenly feel the need to have my tonsils removed along with any other unnecessary body parts I might have.
    Just for the record, #13/63 is my all time favorite photo from these posts. I've wondered since first seeing it in mini on a couch if they are all sisters or at least cousins.

      Totally agree about the nurses.

    2. Shoot. I didn't realize I'd put the same picture up twice. When you're posting 90 photos, things tend to get unweildy.

      I can't help but wonder why that's your fave. Do tell. I'd have said either 12,19 or 83

      What can I say to explain why I prefer one great set of gams over another? There is a saying that tries to explain unexplainable love with the words, "The heart wants what the heart wants." I guess I can only say the eyes like what the eyes like.

    #60 seems vaguely familiar. Could it be Cilla Black?

    Leg crossing, the reason why I never learned what a participle was in Mrs. Craighead's freshman English class, among other things. She'd sit down, cross those mini-skirted gams, and away went higher brain functions.

  9. #26 the brunette on the couch. Yowzah.

  10. The living room in #11 looks just like my parent's living room in the 60's, rather than those designer mag spreads you've shown. Except for the color scheme. My Mom liked blue.

    The nurses in #61 remind me of a Groucho Marx line where he says to a nurse "If I told you that you had a beautify body, would you hold it against me?"

  11. No 65 is interesting...somebody must have been watching The Prisoner.

    Love the tease of seeing the tops of the stockings with the garter strap! Man, that was a gam-o-rama, a lovely load of luscious legs! Perhaps do a post on just legs?

    Here is a link to an astonishing leg cross from an early episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT, by original model Anitra Ford:

    Can't speak for the other anonymous, but 13/63 is my favorite because I spent most of 1971-1973 falling in love with one short, straight-haired miniskirted brunette after another, and here there are four of them all gathered together at once.
    I love these posts, because now instead of just having one yearbook, I can look at a whole collection from across the country.

  15. I could be mistaken but the brunette sitting down in the middle of the couch in #26 looks like Ali MacGraw.
