Obviously there are young ladies like hazel wands, “tall and straight and thin,” who can manage the cost of the sheath dress or sheath coat gave they convey themselves like hazel wands and don’t embrace the undulating stroll of those mannequins who equalization their heads back at an edge of 33 degrees from their stumbling feet.
