Fashion Scene

This month I’ve found an ensemble in crisp black and white.

The shirt style blouse is in white crepe, crepe seems to be the ‘in’ fabric these days – and the black mini-skirt (also black crepe) has two bands of hemstitching round the bottom, giving a see-through effect.

Flared bottomed slacks to match are also available. To complete the outfit – a very smart cape coat. Fully lined, it is in black and white herring- bone tweed, with a nylon fur collar.
