a matter of selecting the right shop.
Price alone never made a blouse distinctive any more
than color ever made a picture great. It is the blouse
shop itself which determines the character of its mer
chandise. And it is this which is responsible for our
ability to show distinctive blouses at so low a price as
two dollars. The styles in this offering are numerous,
and the designs much more attractive than one usually
finds at this figure.
There are combinations of net and batiste embroidery,
voile blouses with diamond embroidery; semi-tailored
blouses with yoke back; blouses of hemstitched cotton
crepe; sheer lawn blouses with colored embroidery and
flat Val. lace insertion; sheer batiste blouses with yoke
of medallion filet lace and embroidered front, and many
others. A feature of these dainty blouses is that all have
double collars some of them a combination of self
material and rose, blue or amber colored satin. All
have i sleeves. Great value. Main floor
