WHAT SHALL I WEAR?

Subtitled ""The What, Where, When and How Much of Fashion"", this play on diaplay by a famous name designer jauntily swings the round of fashion with the author's personal pre- occupation as wearer of clothes as immediate as her public occupation as designer. Miss McCardell believes in clothes to live in, clothes to suit the varied roles women play -- to permit the wearer to be ""Elizabeth, Lizzie, Betsy and Bess"" in proper turn. She helps by darting into the glove compartment, displaying her favorite costume jewels and belts, offering fitting suggestions on alterations, explaining how to be size-wise. She emphasizes that dressing well requires time and effort if not money -- and that ""getting by"" is not enough. Despite the pointer on ""living clothes"", the line is still out for the onlookers -- how to appear the seasoned traveler or sportswoman exemplifies this. Breezy picker-upper.
