The styles are at least a season earlier than the popular-priced goods and are naturally very advanced. All the extreme Parisian ideas are shown vastly improved in La Vidas. Many of these models are never made up into lower-priced goods, so that the exclusive woman can secure an indi viduality in her figure. All the fab rics in La Vidas are imported from France and England, where the best corset materials , in the world are produced. Domestic cloths are vastly inferior to the foreign fabrics in this class of materials, as they stretch too easily and lack stability of body. Some of the finer qualities are hand-embro?dered on silk or linen, or silk and linen grounds. The trimmings (laces, plush steel linings, etc.) are exquisitely qualitied..
