Be In, Girls

Be In, Girls

Sir,—Why don't women wear glamorous clothes to Vic. parties anymore? One really has to go out to the suburbs or to Public Service staff parties to find women wearing pretty party dresses.

I have been interested to see all the amazing materials in the shops these days from which stunning dresses could be made, but Vic. women seem to prefer hard tailored suits, and even . . . Slacks! I don't want to be unkind but I do not consider slacks to be suitable garb for parties.

So, sir, may I put in a quiet plea for some more of those shiny, rustly sort of dresses, or some of that stuff you can see right through (I notice our women wear another complete dress underneath.

I hope my complaint will be heard in the right circles as the guy at my elbow says. "If the women must wear clothes to parties, at least let 'em be glamorous."

Hopeful
