PARIS FASHIONS. WOMEN'S WEAR eN THE CAY CITY. I About the Paris fashions -there- is an altogether irresistible faeciiiation, for most utimen at all events. One might think that we ha-d all tacitly agreed "that they do these things better in France," -although such a sweeping ad- mission would be most unfair to tlie clever costumiers and milliners on this side of the Channel. Still, there is no getting away from the foc.t' that the Paris styles, speaking generally, have quite a magnetic attractivone&s, and though soia-a of trtem do not always meet with such approval, and others lyould certainly not suit tho' Englishwoman, this is more than made up for by the nll- doubted charms of tho great maj ority. Manv of the Paris models now dis- played in the leading shops are the per- fection of daintiness, grace, and refine- ment and it would be tt singularly con- tented or unim'agiiia.tive woman who was not consumed with, a desire to possess at least a few of thesp treasures; and while it is true thut in many cases the prices are prohibitive, eave to those with a T?ry well-Iii? purse—indc«l, it is on the other h:md f?u?Hy true th:t a other y ti-U.E her tly cl(,?ve?r ii-itli her the biii^ain, v, not experience any -• I j —— -— Sketch No. 357.— Petticoats of the newest Two very good Frenchj type.

The material need not, of course, bo necessarily the sajno- as those of the original, but even when economy is studied in this way, very excellent re- sults may1 be achieved. Prevailing Modes. 'The Parisienne retains Iter love for the teilor-made costume, tho "fantasie" models being particularly favoured. Cer- tainly there is nothing smarter or really more attractive than a well-cut, elegant costume for appropriate occasions, and I do not kmow any form of women's wear that is more generally becoming. Out sisters in the gay city, also, are still wearing skirts that fit quite tight round the feet, but sla&bed, of course, either in front or at the side. Anotlter very fashionable vaguo of the moment is represented by the sleeveless bodice, which is now being largely worn this moofl is not Tor everyone, but for the blecssed with pretty arms it is quite ideal. Discreetly blended blnek and white make-, one of the handsomest colour combinations one can possibly imagine, and it is not surprising to find these coloili-s still all tbe rage in Paris. The Latest in Millinery.
