The gold tassel belt is by Richelieu and adds a perfect bit of sparkle. Nothing wrong there either.
Chunky platform shoes by Viner Bros. worn with dark hosiery. Nope, that's OK.
Gloves by Crescendoe-Superb. Wait! Gloves in 1970? No, no, no, no, no! Gloves, like hats, had gone completely out of favor by this time, especially with the younger fashion reader that editor Diana Vreeland was appealing to. They look very out of place with this ultra modern 1970 suit. Why include them in the photo? My guess would be that either Vreeland was under pressure to appeal to her more traditional readers from the powers on high at Vogue, or the Crescendoe company required their gloves be used in fashion shoots as part of an agreement to buy ad space in the magazine. What do you think?

The copy from the ad reads as follows:
"The Un-Ascetic Sandal
When you get down to the basics in sandals, you get pretty close to what a 15th century monk wore around the monastery.
Bernardo says even the sandal that's basic enough to be right with bathing suits, party pyjamas and everything in between, doesn't have to be a bore.
These bright shining discs, more at home on the moon than in a monastery, are Bernardo's "Moon Sandals" designed for 20th century people by Eva Sonnino."
