Fashions of the Day.
My Dearest Adelaide: Wfcy are other
wise well-dressed women o careless
boat their shoes? When you come to
tUBko(it,itk really sort surprising.
Niae women out of ten that yon meet
ia drawing rooms sad on the street are
badly shod. It ia not uncommon to aee
black dreaaea with tan ahoea and hand
some ailkaand velvets with "harked" and
grimy kid. Women who are particular

feet. A woman should haT6 at least six
or seven pairs of ahoea for the street
high and low kid, high and low patent
leather, high and low tan to aay
nothing of the house ahoea and slippers.
Shoes should be changed as often aa the
dress or eren ottener.
Tan shoes should never be worn with
black dresses. They do very well with
blue or colors which do not correspond
exactly, bat are in shocking taste with
black costumes. Patent leather should
be worn with silk, satin or velvet, or else
a perfectly fresh, French kid shoe. With
tailor-made suits and with cloth the kid
boot is always correct. The tan ahoe k
a freedom allowed for comfort, but un
less caret ally confined to the proper suit
ia decidedly untidy and plebeian. Tan
ahoea, unless matching costumes, should
go with wash goods, checks, summer
wools, warm-day "get-ups," shirt wakta
The popalar low ahoe k laced over the
instep, and gaining in popularity k lac
ing instead of buttons for the high shoe.
In slippers the one strap k the favorite,
with moderately low or moderately high
By the way, the "French heel" k no
more condemned to oblivion. With the
coming of the closer fitting skirts and
the train, which necessitates the lifting
of skirts, shoes are taking a new lease of
beauty. A woman's foot, these spring
days, will be observed, and it has already
become a noticeable fact that the dear
creatures have been taking advantage of

past fashions and are careless; thk k
why, my dear, that I waded into the
"sloppiness" of some women, in the be
ginning of my letter, about their pedal
dressing. Tou would really be -.amazed
to aee how comparatively few neatly
booted feminine feet there are on Broad
way and Fifth avenue.
Glovea for spring are about the same
in styles aawe have had for the winter.
Pearl tinted with heavy black stitching
are again among the new importations,
and so are the lemon, flesh tint, cream
and white. Pale tintB with narrow stitch
ing, black and self-color, are bringing a
higher price, which means, I suppose,
that they are a little later in style. These
are in the four-button gloves. The mous
quetaires are in evidence among the new
gloves, which are just from Park, and
that means the elbow sleeve will be seen
again on summer dresses no French
woman will go without it.
These sunshiny days are bringing out
spring jackets. The ripple basque has
entirely disappeared, and all the spring
jackets have the basque fitting smoothly
at the back and over the hips. Bicks
are fitted closely to the figure and fronts
are square, single or double-breasted,
without darts, excepting in the under
Veils axe a special feature of the
springy days, and are sometimes three
yards in length. These are adjusted
loosely to the hat, with ends coming for
ward and tied'in a fluffy bow under the
chin, with the ends forming a vest effect
in the opened blouse. Sometimes the
veil k all white with chiffon and lace
trimmed ends, or it k black with white
trimming, and again,' all black. Of
course, all v;ik are not in this style, but
thk k a favorite, and gives the soft
drapery effect so much in vogue.
By the way, speaking of the "opened
blouse," it k amusing to see the utter
diaregsrd of whether or no a blouse k
made to be opened or not most winter
blouses have been made not to wear
open. But they are open now, and the
lapel-of one side of the blouse k entirely
different from the other. One side will
be trimmed with fur, with afacingshow
ing, and the other will be without trim
ming, with the liningknd hooks or fast
tecings in full view. The new blouses,
of course, are made with broad lapels
turned back and open to the belt in "V
shape. The Medici collar still holds its
own, and forms the same frame work for
the face and neck trimming.
White k used a great deal for facing
lapek and lining the Medici collar.
White plumes have burst forth anew.
They are on all kinds of hats I mean
the long, sweeping plume. One plume
will reach all around the pompadour roll
of the hair and the end will fall on the
shoulder. These hats are mostly velvet
toques, which set back on the head with
no trimming but the one long plume.
Edith and Beta have ordered spring
"tailor-mades," and both of them order
ed blue blue that is blue. It k a shade
that k almost as strong as national blue.
One being a bkmdr and the other a
brunette, you would not suppose the
color to be becoming to both, but it k,
and k an exquisite shade. Edith order
ed a jacket and skirt made without
braiding or trimming. The seams are
overlapped 'and there k to the jacket a
blue velvet collar. Reta'aauit ia to be
heavily braided with black, and k made
with a military sort of wakt, which will
show her pretty figure and graceful
curves to advantage.
It k my opinion that braiding will he
too popular as a trimming and will soon
become "common." It is already seen
on nearly everything. Where braiding
k not seen tucks are. Silks and satins
are tucked in every conceivable way as
much as are the thinner materials.
