Fashion Parade. At home fashions with chic suburbanites. A day with a Darien, Conn., housewife, from brunch-time snack to dressy dinner party-all in high style. Various shots of fashionable housewife (? - or professional model) around the house, donning different outfits through the day. Puttering around the kitchen at breakfast in bathrobe or long nightgown. She pulls on a skirt while a guest is visiting (seems odd). She and guest, wearing stylish casual daywear, drink tea together. Housewife sits and drinks cocktail in patterned dress with what looks like a large long ribbon hanging off of it. Chicken roasts on a spit in fireplace (?!). Various staged-looking shots of 3 couples at cocktail party in home - the neighbor is wearing something by Oleg Cassini! Postwar prosperity, I suppose. Wow.
