Latest Parisian Fashions.

[from our own correspondent.]

Jerseys are coming in fashion again, made with velvet yoke and sleeves with jacket effects in front. Mushroom colour is a favorite this season. Princess robes are also coming to the fore, and are adapted to Blender figures. Red, mauve, and yellow are fashionable shades for artificial flowers, the yellow shading from pale to deep orange. Roses of unnatural colours are much "the fashion, and a new aud stylish piece of headgear was trimmed with heliotrope roses. Nasturtiums, dahlias and guelder roses aro more worn than primroses, which are in season, and should be tho natural trimming ; but flowers in season or out of season are used indiscriminately. , . ' ■

Floral bonnets and toques are much en vogue, and it is said that during the, summer the bonnets will often ,be made of real flowers, a pretty idea for garden parties, but one difficult to carry out, and to preserve the blossoms fresh. The loose open jackets for wear indoors or out are among the < indispensable adjuncts to a woman's toilette, and they are worn with shirts and : waistcoats, and cufc, as much like a man's coat as possible, j Linen collars and cuffs are revived in consequence and are worn'even with the high flaring dress collars now in fashion. The waistcoats are sometimes made by the tailor like a moveable vest, that is, easily fastened in the arm holes" by buttons. Very gay cloths are used for these vests in stripes of pink and cream, or the tartaji cloth with green and yellow bars. Several waistcoats may belong to one jacket. Rough dark blue diagonal stuffs are liked for.the jackets, with facings of faille on long the rolling collar. velvet'ribbon in wjiite and every light an dark .shade is quite a, feature of the' ; season, and can be had from less than an inch wide to a width of several inches. Ittrims everything, the edges of dresses: in several rows, bodices, parasols, hats and bonnets—and is often worn around tiare' throats in the evehing. Small collarettes of piece velvet, shaped to fit the * neck, beginning to be worn, and are sometimes fringed with pearls; or beaded' with. 1 a single row of diamonds. ' A novelty in gloves is the Russian leather waterproof glove, for driving or country wear, as it will r stand any amount of wetting and lrard wear. . , „'. „. v r A novel toilet pin-cushion,' made * by cleft fingers, is to cover a round Indian metal bowl,,or,;a''painted Russian or Japanese one with a dainty handkerchief of some fancy > material edged with lace, and tied around with'ribbons," with" the* corners falling over. The cushion is, glued into the bowl which it fits tightly, and is made of a color to matching- jbhe brocade of the handkerchief/ The bows are often silvered or gilded, and the' same, idea may be used for table decorations, bows of a larger Bize being similarly treated and filled with flowers. „ Paris, 29th April, 1890'.^'
