ABOUT FURS AND FUR. TRIMMINGS It is curious to note with what regu- larity otter and fox furs recur, and this winter finds both in much demand. Racoon too, is one of the latest furs to be pressed into our service. It has been brought to a, remarkable pitch of per- fection by dying and dressing', and is now both a becoming and satisfactory pelt, and one to be highly recommended to those who cannot attain to more expensive sorts. London certainly lags behind Paris in the matter of trimming with fur, coats, and costumes, evening U and reception gowns, and every variety of over-dress. A flimsy gown finished with a band of fur seem out of place, yet if properly built, it. has a dis- tinction quite its own. The soft yet weighty g.arniture of fur proves that the latter may be charmingly combined with net! Fur used with white, moire silk has a most handsome effect, if the former be grey or dark in colour, but ermine is not a suc- cessful combination. Sealskin is being trunmed with black satin, and bands of this materipil are placed at the hem of coats, and revers and Guffs of it adorn fronts and sleeves. The effect is dignified, if severe, and although it may appear in- congruous, to use the two together, this mode has undoubtely come to stay.
