When Taurus Met Virgo in the clear World of Smirnoff... (1969)

When Taurus Met Virgo in the clear World of Smirnoff!

Taurus meets Virgo in the clear world of Smirnoff.

Whatever sign you were born under, there's a Smirnoff to match your mood and taste. From sunny Screwdrivers to sparkling Martini's, the entire Smirnoff constellation reads crystal clear. Because Smirnoff is refined and filtered to be measurably clearer. But caution: Be wary of sly imposters in dark places. Smirnoff leaves you breathless.

Sisters share everything..almost! | Nova Magazine 1966


I buy my Acrilan dress designed by Marlborough. She buys her Acrilan dress designed by Marlborough. We both look great. Because the Marlborough cut is always great. If we want to swap, the answer is 'no.' We're not mean about most things, but Acrilan brings out primitive possessive feelings. It's so soft. So yours. You want to keep Acrilan all to yourself alone.

HORROCKSES  Style 901. Pink dress and Green dress. Other colours Dresden Blue, Maize. Sizes 12-18. About 6½ gns. Horrockses Fashions Ltd, 110 Aldersgate St, EC1.
