It's Either Round Dozen Skirts
Or No Skirts at All In Bahia
By Margaret Mason
In Bahia, Brazil '
The fashions are nil.
Each wears what she will
And it's "eoinmc 11 faut " still.
Some beads aud a shawl
Are quite jaunty withal;
And a smile's very nice
For they never have ice.
Bahia, Brazil, Aug. S (By mail te
Xew York) There are 305 churches in
Brazil and it looks like some of the
Bahia belles number their skirts by
the sacred edifices. 1'aris and New
York have nothing on Bahia when it
comes to that "hoops, my dear" ef
fect. The women seem to run to skirts,
whereas the men just seem to run after
them. ..' .
This bouffant nether effect, topped
off with a nifty little coming jacket
and a gayly hued shawl draped care
lessly over the left shoulder is consid
ered a toilette de luxe in Bahia.
The styles are a bit extreme in this
Brazilian port, however. Where -some
petticoats seem numberless, yet again
some seem to number less than aothing.
Their motto seems to be "If you must
do it, go the limit." If you must skirt
the properties do a good job and call
it a dozen.
If you must wear a hat, wear a hat.
The Banian "bonnet .certainly makes
our alleged picture or garden hat or
our erstwhile Merry Widow look like
a pill box.
Even in motoring, these huge straw
or shirred chiffon hats are vaunted
On the other hand, or rather head, a
