    L/S and C/U of woman modelling hat with a large bow at the front. Intertitle reads: "And a charming black lace creation which can be worn equally well in two styles."

A fabulous creation is modelled. The shopper and shop assistant in this story also appear in EP 087 "The Right Hat - And The Wrong Way".
