Subtitled "A complete guide for every woman who wants to be well and properly dressed on all occasions". The author was the directrice of the Nina Ricci fashion house in Paris and writes with both authority and a light humorous tone.
Aiming to be a comprehensive encyclopaedia to every item a woman wears or carries and presented alphabetically in short chapters from accessories to zips. A wonderful and light-hearted step back in time to an era when the correct length of gloves, and how to wear alligator or mink were, to some at least, important considerations. Planning a country weekend, a ball or a cruise? This book is full of common sense, stimulating suggestions and reliable advice.
