Vintage Fashion Tips

I love looking through old newspapers. For my family tree research its especially helpful - since The Reading Eagle has most of its issues stored on Google's archive news files.
Looking through an issue today I found this great tip from 1912.
It reads as follows:
Not only my lady's footwear, but also her headwear is buckled now. Huge metal buckles adorn the modish millinery for autumn days and though these big buckles are a bit severe over the elderly and plain face, above a pretty face they are charming.
A great fashion tip - that I thought we could all use.
