A Gorgeous Millinery Season
SPECIAL Display Thursday of advance winter styles of
Dress Hats. A most picturesque warfare Is being
carried on in the realm of millinery.
The beauty contest Is between big hat versus little; flar
ing brim versus drooping effect; flower laden versus beplum
ed and beribboned. Fashion experts say, there is seldom a
season where everything in millinery is in demand as it now
is. The big hat is scoring a success. Ladies are wearing
hats of proportion so immense that a short time ago they
would not have had the courage to appear in. The trimming
is carried to the same extreme. Fancy feather novelties are
conspicuously large, as are bows, rosettes and plumes.
The one essential feature is excellency of quality.
It is evidently a part of fashion's plan to make the small
hat as conspicious as the large one, by exaggerated trimming
effects Come on Thursday and note the rivalry. We dis
play the hat beautiful in its most gracious and exquisite style.
