ELEGANT SANDAL, a pale blue kid shoe, vacation-bound. Light, airy and pared away to bare essentials, the draped front touched with a pretty trifle.
Left: SOCIABLE SEPARATES, in a new thin cotton. Pat Crowley pairs the swirling gored skirt, dotted and striped, to its own shoulder-baring camisole.
Middle: WHITE SHEATH DRESS, Barbara Ruick’s sheath, the near-perfect kind to take anywhere. This one has deep-throat high bosom line outlined in lace.
Right: PRINCESS DRESS. Belted and strapless, Pat Crowleys pretty Princess dress is in white print etched on black cotton. The flattering shape held via Pellon lining, a boned bodice.
