Titanic Images - Good Housekeeping Magazine
Good Housekeeping offers good short stories of about 4000 to 6000 words that are preferably not the "woman's magazine" type. Often looks for short stories of real distinction.
As an example of the material used, a representative issue contained installments of two serials (these are usually arranged for, being by established and well-known writers), four short stories set in the present day, and five original lyrical poems.
This number also contained several short articles of home interest, some Kewpie pages, and the usual departmental material—including the Discoveries column, for which short paragraphs telling about home inventions and short-cuts are required.
Lady Duff-Gordon, aka Lucile, was a survivor of the Titanic. These are images of her incredible fashions from 1912, published by Good Housekeeping.

The guest enjoying the cup of tea is wearing a simple frock of gray silk cashmere with sash and buttons of the material. The skirt is buttoned with four buttons halfway up the front, and displays a Cambria Petticoat, with Valenciennes lace insertion and powder blue ribbon edged with black. The collar and ruffs are of muslin matching the hat, with a tie of powder blue ribbon. Her hostess appears in a gown of black and white striped chiffon piped with white satin. The cuffs of the sleeves and the bottom part of the skirt are also of the white satin. This skirt is draped up on one side, revealing a petticoat of white lace bound with black velvet, and on the other side a black velvet sash is tied in a large bow. Fine Merklin lace and coarse lace embroidery are used for the collar and jabot. The other guest wears a handsome lace gown mounted over pale pink chiffon. The lower part of the skirt is very narrow, with a fuller upper flounce, falling straight from the raised belt of pale blue satin. The bébé bodice is of the lace with dear little puffed sleeves finished with lace ruffles. The hat is of the same lace, draped with pink satin ribbon and blue forget-me-nots.

A New Coat and Skirt Suit - Designed by Lucile - Of a rich green faille with the tunic of the skirt draped at the side, and the coat following the same line, both being caught up with a beautiful belt of dull silver brocade finished with a heavy silver buckle. The coat has a collar of heavy silk embroidery, and a long tassel of silk and silver at the side. A row of small buttons of the material trim the coat.
