TRY to suggoat "good times" in both m
hata and gowno that will be worn during
what I call tho "good times" months of
July and August In tho charming roso
and white costume that 1 am showing you this week
1 feel that I havo suocossfully brought out every
quality of this kind. Does not this wholo costume
suggest to you a delightful out-of-doors nffairf A
gardon party held on the grounds of some beauti
ful country estate?
This Is o Quaint model, but one that bos all the
hallmarks of the very latost creations. It la cre
ated in an embroidered crepe. Te skirt la made
lb two sections, each edged with a band of rose
chiffon, and the hem Is also of this fabric. The
little orursklrt, longer at tho hips than In front
or baok, is edged with the chiffon. And, as you
see in the picture, this rose note Is reproduced on
the bodice. The girdle, which has a novel low ar
rangement and long ends, is of three shades of roso
The Equant little hat is one of the very odd
white satin affaire. It is bound with rose satin,
and has a large rose set coquettishly on the brim.
I am showing you a back view of this so charm
ing costume, as I think that bocks are even more
Important than fronts.
While there is every evidence that August will
bring back the large flowered and plumed hat, the
imall hot is still the popular model. There Is so
much personality, I think, to the small hat that I
shall continue to make them whenever possible.
This little hat ihas a lavender brim of straw. The
hat Itself is covered with silk cropo striped in two
tonesof mauve. The satin band is lavendor, with
tiny flowers painted on it, and there is just a small
bunch of mauve flowers at the right of the brim.
Tho ever so charming costume In flowered silk
that I am sending you bears strong token that the
Pompadour will be with us. Tho high girdle nnd
tho soft filmy bertha are very boautlful, but as a
rule are becoming only to slendor (figures. The
draped oversklrt, too, alae, is only charming whon
worn by those of much slenderness.
Let every woman keep woll in the front of her
mind that sho cannot be considered perfectly
dressed uiileeo she carries a parasol. I cannot
recall a season when parasols, tnoso first aids to
tho coquette, were more vitally important. The
smaller ones are always very much trimmed, and
are Invariably of lace or net.
I am, however, showing you one that is a combl.
nation of net nnd silk, the upper section being of
white silk and the lower of line net embroidery.
Where the two sections join there Is a niching
And notice. If you please, the diaphanous gown
worn by tho wearer of this parasol. It is one of
my llghthenrtod gowns, a symphony in yellow and
white. Tho hat Is n big affair of white maline,
with a shirred brim, bound with a pale yellow
