Formula for Fashion . . .And now that the long- nwaited cool wcnthor is here, it's only natural that you turn your thoughts to dreams of n luscious, luxurious fur coat for the busy, chilly mouths to come. MAKV HAD A LITTLE LAMIt which she took where- ever she went. . . . And why not? For it was a lovely j;rey Bombay lamb made into a coat of simple elegance fashioned by a master's hand. The long sweep from shoulder to hem, the roomy mandarin sleeves, the sleek tuxedo front, all go into making the coat a really superb creation. You'll see it at EGGEH'S. THE LITTLE FOXES give you a feeling of utter magnificence . . . your choice of red, blue or silver will make you feel like a dream-come-trtie. THE WOLF WHISTLE will have a meaning if you're wearing one of Egger's truly wonderful NEW short coats of polo wolf. The skins are beautifully matched, nnd the natural color of the soft, pliant long-haired fur will give you that feeling of unparalleled elegance. GOING STEADY is easy in a rayon-gabardine dress—slim as a rapier. You can wear it to work, on your volunteer war job, to luncheon, shopping and straight on into evening. The dress buttons from neckline to hemline with one slim little pleat in the back of the skirt to let you walk with confidence. The sleeves are long and button at the cuff like your favorite shirt, and are set-in a la Adrian^ but with the same detail found on the shoulders of your dearest army officers' trench coat. You'll find it in boney-gold or artillery red. • * * DRESSIXG-L'P IS FUN if you have decided to go all-out for the feminine as so many of the really smart women are doing this season. For the stately, imposing figure there is a dinner dress of the blackest jet-black with a high, round neckline adorned with glittering black sequins. The long, slim skirt falls straight to the floor, but wanders off into a soft, deft side drape that is caught at the hip by more black sequins. It's really a sheer triumph of eloquence. YOUNG AND SWEET Is the evening dress with the full, full skirt of black and white check. The bodice is short, made of the softest black velvet, and tapers off at the shoulders in the tiniest of cap sleeves. Little bits of the check peek out from under the caps and from the soft, square neckline. It's a cinch to wow the stagline. This season is full of wonderful, slim, feminine fashions. You'll find them all at
