First, they’re so different, so exciting in their extremes, and in the things you can do with colors, and sec ondly, they are so inexpensive that even a modest budget, will allow for a pair of shoes for every evening gown. Many a girl who received a five or ten dollar bill for Christmas Will go right down town and Invest in the most unusual pair of san dals she can find, for that's all it takes. Sandals Predominate Grecian sandaL seem to be more and more popular, so much so that they almost ex clude all other types. They are worn with all evening gowns, whether they are of Grecian lines or not, and they may be chosen to match or contrast with the gown.

Many kid shoes are smart, too. either gold or silver kid, or combinations of both, better still. They have the ac|vsintage of being suitable with any color. The more cut-out the smarter, is the general rule. Last year’s sandals seemed daring and ex treme, but put them beside the I delectible bits that we have sketched ud they will look almost old-fashioned. The satin sandal with high heels comes in white, to be worn white or dyed, or it may be bought in black. It has pink lining and I silver heel sole.
