b'ASHION NOTES. I [BY MESSRS. BEN EVANS AND CO., LIMITED, ) SWANSEA, t What constitutes a really well dressed woman," is a question often asked, and is in its way rather a poser, for there are so many styles i of looks that no one hard and fast rule can be laid down as to where and how withal we shall be clothed. To our mind the best-turned-out J woman is the one whose toilettes evince the stamp of individuality, while at the same time they convey a soothing sense of harmony to the on- looker, the general effect being altogether free from any jarring note, created by some too pro- nounced detail. It is, therefore, not only to those rolling in wealth that the possibilities of per- fection in dress offer themselves, for any one possessed of a real individuality of style can go to some inglorious dressmaker who recognises the genius of her patron and will faithfully carry out her ideas witnout reference to any fashion paper and the rules and suggestions contained therein. To create a style of her own should be the aim of every woman who, possessed of a fair amount of good looks, seeks distinction. We have on view a charming collection of those exceedingly useful silk slips wnich will be found equally suited to afternoon and evening wear. Some of the»e are distinguished by a yoke of real lace, and can be obtained in ivory, sky blue, pink, heliotrepe, and maize. There are numerous very narrow tucks also introduced in this slip for decorative purposes, and when a thin material { such as silk is employed it is a wise plan to put plenty of material into the blouse, confined possibly by tucks, as by so doing there is no strain on the siik, which thereiore fits better and wears longer. Another exceedingly charming model of a silk slip is expressed in pate tUtquoise silk, the bodice part arranged in tucked bands from neck to waist, interspersed with lines of cream lace insertion. The throat is finished by a band of the lace insertion with a rosette of black velvet "bebe" ribbon at the side. Shirt blouses for morning wear, are this season distinguished by the amount of tuckings which are arranged continuously or in groups of three or four from the American saddle-back yoke which the smartest ones always display. Zephyrs delaines, cambric and muslin are used in their construction, and the latter, when printed with nosegays of flowert- are particularly charming, and look especially pretty when finished at the throat by a stock of silk matching in tone tLe predominating culour of the flowers. Afternoon toilettes must be awarded a due amount of consideration, and so a charming gown j of golden brown clotn, relieved by touches of yellow at the wrists and neck must duly be viewed with respect. A certain intermingling of I gold cord helps to lighten the whole and a golden yellow toque of chiffon trimmed with oxeyed daisies completes a charming tovt ememble. Any hat, however, could be worn with such a toilette (and herein lies its principal charm) as from a simple straw chapeait to an alluring "conteotiDn" of tulle ennauced b) a black panne rose, iu front, nothing would come amiss. Fcr trimming a burnt straw or Panama hat nothing is so smart as white gauze spotted with black chenille.
