Not only does LIFE have plenty to say about how one should remove their stockings, but they also have a few party tricks up their sleeve.
Take for instance this game of "fumble."
How to play: One person designated "it" leaves the room, the other guests swap clothes to disguise themselves. The lights are turned off. Then "it," eyes closed, gropes her way through the party guests to decipher who's actually who.
LIFE Magazine, Carl Iwasaki, 1952.
