If anyone wants -- and needs -- to get advice from a book as to hows and whys of dress, this is the sort of book she will want. Sell to the same type of customer that wants a beauty book and an etiquette book. (Not the aspiring progressive, but the conservative seeker of self-aid.) This is a book of wider information than the Rittenhouse Well-Dressed Woman (Harper), now, I believe out of print -- for here, keyed to the possessor of an average income, is advice on fundamentals of dress, accessories, make-up, care of the figure, face and body, scales of color in make-up and clothing, advice to thin women and fat, old women and young, women struggling with problems of anatomy which can be offset by styles of dress. There is plenty of good common sense, enough balance between the modern mode and the conservative taste to offend no one, and very little that will ""date"" the book too quickly, though some will question certain points of taste.
