I am new to your town, right off the prairie schooner you might say. I still don't know a jockey box from a wagon bow so I don't want to put a foot wrong entering city society. I was wondering if you would help me with the latest fashions? What is in vogue out here, I haven't a clue?

My recommendation for a Reno evening starter outfit would be this lovely burgundy Renaissance style evening gown of velveteen and silk satin with passementerie openwork banding around the V-neck arm holes, short peplum, which comes to a V at the front, along the side and bottom of the velveteen skirt front. It has leg-o-mutton satin sleeves and side skirt insets, appliquéd with all-over velveteen lattice work and faceted red and gold bead detail.
This beautiful gown can be seen at the National Automoble Museum.
