"Then behold the difference! Your eyes are so much lovelier!"
Saturday, April 28, 2012
But once again please do take a moment and look at the details. That buttoned tab on the front of skirt, the narrow pleats down from the waist and the bit of a train on our seated lady, that amazing little back drape on our third lady and the contrast collar, cuffs and hem on the 'Tunic Shirt'. How grand. And all on Stout Women!

Don't miss the ad copy here. It's an example of fine advertising at it's best. Just remember For "Huaraches, "just say "Wah-rah'-chez".
When the postman delivers your pair of these famous imported sandals you'll begin to enjoy new sensations in real foot ease and comfort, and new pride in wearing something so truly original and handmade. The weavers of our STEERHIDE HUARACHES never repeat a pattern, and this is something that can be said of no other sandal in the world. It is a tribute to the Indian sandal-maker and to the good taste of the wearer.
The Indian Huaracheros use real leather only, honest leather that nature, and the backs of their own tough oxen, gave them. Unpolished and undyed, it has a beautiful light beige tone that turns deeper with wear. (Actual color photo.)
A product of the hot, rough country of southern Mexico, they are reinforced for rough going, and air conditioned against summer's heat.
The Steerhide that gives them stamina also gives YOU comfort, for the soft, fresh feet of supple leather thongs relaxes tired feet as nothing else can.
For "Huaraches, "just say "Wah-rah'-chez"
NO RATION COUPON REOUIRED
$2.95 is the price of this Bench-Made Sandal imported from our good neighbor Mexico and still available from us at no increase in price.
Easily fitted. We have all sizes for ladies and gentlemen in narrow, medium or wide lasts. Merely mention your shoe size, and if convenient send tracing of foot outline. Pure white leather is also available but only in plain weave and pattern.

I wish we could see these clearer, or better yet, see them in person. It wouldn't it be great to match the scarfs with the designers? Any guesses?

"Spring advocates more hat and less foolish-ness."
"Cover Story - Synonymous with Easter...the soft navy suit illustrated on cover. Tenderly tailored to emphasize the feminine curves of your figure, it is collared with demure scallops. A Swansdown suit about $50. B. Altman"
"THE styles on the following pages, all whipped up on this side of the Atlantic, clearly prove that American designers cook up as delectable concoctions as the Paris milliners. They are pretty as American women are pretty. Their clean cut lines, their high style fit in with the good looking American designed clothes that American women wear. They are expensive, but we have selected them because they represent the artistry of some of our finest designers. They are trends. The Spring breezes will also blow on less extravagant models.
Spring advocates more hat and less foolishness. Off the face models have been accepted, applauded and adapted in all price ranges. Brimmed hats sit firmly back on the head. Not even the swoop down on the eye types lose face. There is a great deal of action behind the back of the head ... making exits as entrancing as entrances. The overstuffed look of winter has given way to straight adorned prettiness. Crisp ribbons are used by the yard in an unbelievable range of color . . . plus plaids, stripes and novelties. Flowers spring up in profusion. Veiling, maline and net come in for rapt attention."
