A dress of combined rabbit's wool
and velvet in a soft wine tone is a
good bet for that casual dress to
make you feel just right at a game
before a tea dance. The severeness
of line provides a perfect foil for the
innumerable gadgets that make this'
fall's wardrobe trickier than ever.
Massive old-gashioned gold and
amethyst necklaces are the millstones
around 'our necks this year. And in
the hair a new version of the ribbon
bow-use your woven name tapes tied
in bows. They come in almost any
color that your sweaters and dresses
may be.
Another necklace takes the form
of a portable diary. To celebrate
that blue book you thought you'd
flunked and then passed beautifully,
string a half a .pencil on that heavy
old necklace chain of your grand-
mother's. Remember that silly lim-
erick contest you won? Bore a hole
in a penny (very secretly) and string
it beside the pencil. And then there
is the time you almost drowned at
Loch Alpine? A cork, of course, is
the thing to hang beside the penny.

Sudden as the flash of a match, turbans in vital,
fiery colors blaze into Fashion. Turbans in
velvet, felt, wool ... swirling high and higher
binding your head in splendor. They're
dramatic, sophisticated, ALIVE! Come in and
see this vivid collection today.
