Notice the lace tunic, ?for Instance, combined with rose satin.
The tunic, edged with a very new chic flounce, Is of black chantllly

waisted effect given by the crushed girdle Is in keeping with the
design of the costume and with the figure of the wearer. 1 do like
the big satin rose that Is tucked Into the front of the girdle. This
is the new way to wear flowers and the only place that will be

cidedly "out of the picture."
Another scarf that Is most satisfac

lace. The mesh of tills lace skirt, which,
by the way, 1s fulled over a cerise drop
skirt, is as fine as tulle. The bertha which
distinguishes the bodice is rapidly grow

delightful rose tulle Affair.
