Two World War II-era department store programs for working women's fashion events at the tea room of Pittsburgh's Joseph Horne Co.

The first, featuring the Harper's Bazaar presentation "Girl With A Job," promises to outfit women in "Red Cross uniforms, Civilian Defense uniforms, trimly tailored slacks, for everything from Canteen and First Aid to a class in Mechanics;" the second urges "business girls" to abandon caution and forget about budgeting, because glamour "strengthens your morale though it may weaken your cash reserve." With red lipsticks offered in special wartime colorways Firelight, Siren, and All Clear.
