At the Blum Stere, 1310 Chestnut Street, I saw some perfectly stunning
models in black Andrae Superior trimmed with beautiful glossy caracul
and lined with crepe de chine. They are priced at S98.60 and are exact
copies of $250 coats. There were three coats that 1 noticed in particular,
of distinctive cut one with the tight basque effect, a jaunty model for
the debutante; another model with straight lines nnd most attractive,
while the last would be especially appropriate for the elderly woman.
Yeu will find, however, many beautiful coats and wraps at Blums', en
they have all been greatly reduced, Some are priced as low as lf28.5Q.
