NotesContent: Title from folder.Content: Printed on border, clockwise from upper left: "Even the most casual summer eye will see red when it looks at the white organdie frock above--red buttons (a round dozen of them), or red roses, or red sleeves, or a splash of that colour further emphasized by a bright green ribbon." "Poise automatically comes into a life with the advent of a ruffled old-blue taffeta hat and a ruffled blue taffeta bag to match." "Models from Miss Stickney." "When one wears a frock of yellow handkerchief linen trimmed with brown appliqué linen squares and a fluted linen belt, telling off a daisy becomes a very pleasant occupation, for the outcome is practically certain to be favourable." "Straight, and simple, and youthful enough to belong to her mother is this dotted Swiss frock of pale blue banded with bright blue flowered chintz and girdled with a royal blue ribbon upon which bloom four deep blue cornflowers." "A morning frock that would keep its pristine freshness despite the ardours of the life of a young woman of ten is of blue checked gingham and chambray. Gingham and chambray are so comfortably substantial, too." Written on border: "July 15, 1921."Source note: Vogue. (New York : Condé-Nast Inc., 1892-).
