Thursday Club meeting with Mrs. E. B. Gee. Mid-Week Club meeting with Grow Old Together BY ALICIA HART NEA Brauly Editor Almost every woman lias noticed how very dowdy her carefully- Inuiulcred lingerie looks when put on in combination with a new slip. It's kind of depressing, but on« of those Inevitable happening! In the life of a wardrobe. At just a few financially Slush times In * brand new at once: her departure gal's lile docs she have everything for school, her wedding, a big anniversary trip. But where It pertains to outer clothes, this matter becomes more significant because it's visible to the public. A brand new hat can make a third-season dress look dowdier than one ever dreamed. Of course, throwing out everything when one buyi a new hat | for morale reasons is Impractical. Many women solve the matter by the "Easter Outfit" teachnlque, and it works weel. A coat or suit, n hat, gloves and a handbag enter the wardrobe at the same time; usually in the fall or spring. They go through the years together. The second season, the suit can be refreshed with some new accessories but when the suit or coat leave* the category of "first best" it (jen- erally clings to the accessories of almost the same vintage. When it gets into the everyday category, it craves the protective coloration of not-so-new companions. If you have a cotton evening dress or dressy outfit., it is wise to have it dry-cleaned a time or two at first because of the many types of finishes used on fabrics these days. Wool dresses should be hung In the air as soon as you take them off to free them from any odors and wrinkles. Hang them straight on the hanger and keep them outside the closet overnight. When pencilling your eyebrows, remember that a pointed eyebrow gives you a slightly quizzical loose, and a lengthened brow adds width to the forehead. In general, the I f.ishion trend for eyebrows is a gen- ! erous natural-looking eyebrow. Avoid furrows between the eyes j from reading. There should be no j glare on the paper, the book should i be fourteen to twenty inches from : the nose. Don't bend over the book, i but bring il up to ihe correct distance.
