FASCINATING FRIVOLS FOR THE
SHOPPER.
Only the woman who makes a
round of the shops very of tea as able
to pick out the latest of the season's
novelties. Much that is unusual one
week grows quite commonplace the
next, and yet an article may have
some intrinsic art value which makes
it very desirable to own.
Certain trifles may make one cos
tume quite perfect, or spoil another
altogether. In short, good taste is
never so much in evidence as in the
choice of small things.
A short shopping excursion today
disclosed some lovely new ways of
trimming a hat with nothing but a
veil. The smartest of these veils are
patterned like Paisley shawls. The
most costly are embroidered in gold
or silver thread.
Steel colored cords have been add
ed to the lost list of waist garnitures.
An original one-piece frock has the
waist line perforated for a draw
string and run through with a flat
beaded band, just as ribbon is run
through lingerie.
Few gowns are complete without
a variation of the sash. The huge
Japanese obi appears once more in
loose dresses designed for house
wear.
Many swagger sticks are to be
found in the shops and a few are
seen upon the -street. They are even
more swagger than might be expect
ed when they are lacquered and they
actually have an excuse for being
when the bag is attached to them.
Sometimes the stick is called an
opera cane.
One either likes mustard color or
one has a pronounced antipathy for
it. A gown which should reconcile
anyone to this tinge is made of mus
tard color charmeuse and black
serge.
The smock is replacing the blouse
in many wardrobes. A new idea is to
have the smock of very close linen
crash, to outline the edges with
crewel stitching, and to confine the
fullness at the waist with a worsted
cord. The floppiest of hats are worn
with smocks.
Polka dotted foulard is used to
band frocks of the plain silk. Bag,
hat and parasol are of the dotted silk.
Foulard promises to become one of
the most popular materials of the
summer.
Linen is used in combination with
serge and organdy is combined with
taffeta.
The rule for sleeves is easy to fol
low: the three-quarter length sleeve
is loose and hangs straight from the
shoulder, the knuckle length sleeve
slings closely to the arm.
Wristlets of black moire ribbon afe
made with and without dangling
ends. For evening wear the ribbons
run from bodice to hand. When
worn with a street suit they are
merely atight bracelet buckled with
jet.

PANNIER OVERDRAPERY
BY'BETTY BROWN
Although most women love the
"straight-line" gown, many are
wearing pronounced and .farspread
ing hip overdraperies. Today's de
sign is of a circumference that meets
with the approval of followers of
both extreme and moderate fashions.
Overdraperies of this type emphasize
the smallness of a waist line even
though it be of normal or unlaced
measure.
The panniered effect is most ar
tistic when developed in soft ma
terials. A combination of a heavy and a
