Be the only female in town to have a '40s style pouch peplum suit. October 7, 2010 13:54

Butterick_peplum_suit You want a new jacket for fall. Something special. Something different. You'll even venture so far as to say something unique. And that is not a word you use lightly. You do not want something that every Ann, Tiffany or Celeste is wearing. You want something that will make a pair of jeans look sassy. Something that will look equally at home with a black pencil skirt at the office. And you have found it: Butterick 4422 from the 1940s. The pouch peplum creates that "smart new rounded hipline look," claims the envelope. And you have no doubt that is true. Absolutely. Perhaps in pistachio wool crepe? Or perhaps a hazy mauve. Mmmmm . . . Yes. That's the color. Perfection. Indeed.

And, yes, this magnificent suit is available at The Blue Gardenia. Didn't you know it? You did, didn't you? The details: Bust 34, complete, $50. Be the only one on the block to have this unusual and glamorous suit. Do not delay. The winds of autumn are blowing gentle, and this offers stylish protection. Truly.
