Star Item
  • Description

    L/S of woman dressed in black wool suit with a double printed effect on the sleeves. There is a printed frock concealed underneath the tunic. A nice spotty number with a wrap around skirt. Narrator observes that husbands will like it as it is an "economical model".

    Second is an outfit designed "for coquetting with a cocktail". This long frock is in the latest lacquered material which gives it a sheen, very glamorous indeed. It is printed with a new blue dye to match the new blue cocktail (although we only see it in black and white). The model turns to show the back - the buttoning allows it to be open, exposing quite a lot of flesh. The dress has a jewelled belt which has a ring and earrings to match.

    Japanese style frock in coarse black silk with pink poppies is next - glorious! It has a large black silk bow at the back.

    Blue crepe evening dress is the last outfit modelled. It has a detachable cape-collar which when unfastened hangs gracefully from one shoulder - gorgeous. The narrator observes that it is "the latest fashionable caper, so to speak!"

    Note: tip top fashions, really elegant and glamorous.
