Couture Allure Giveaway #8

Today's giveaway is for a copy of the book "House & Garden's Complete Guide to Interior Decoration" from 1960. This is a large coffee-table size book with 320 pages of incredible home decorating ideas filled with mid-century modern furniture. The dust jacket has some tears and curling at the edges, but otherwise, the book is in excellent condition.

I know, I know - it's not clothes. But if you love vintage fashion, I have an inkling that you'll love this book too. I mean, a leopard rug? Come on - you know you love it.

How do you enter to win? Simple! Visit my website, www.coutureallure.com and pick your favorite item for sale. Leave a comment here with a link to that item and you're entered! OR become a new fan of Couture Allure on Facebook, come back here and leave a comment that you've done so. Do both, and you're entered twice! The winner will be drawn on Friday, February 19th. Please note: If your Blogger profile does not include your email address, please leave it in your comment so I have a way to contact you. The book will be shipped via Media Mail in the U.S. and Global Priority Mail outside the U.S. It is important to note - if you live outside the U.S., I will need to ask you to pay the postage costs, which could be as much as $47.00 depending upon where in the world you live.

My favorite item for sale is still your luscious, lemony 1997 Chanel suit (http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-1997-chanel-yellow-boucle-suit-small-bust-36). I know the suit is out of period for the book, but I can just see myself, in that suit or its mid-century near-twin, on a sunny morning in, say, 1962 or '63, coming home to a fabulous mid-century modern Manhattan apartment (decorated with hints from the book, of course!), having just disembarked from S.S. France with trunks full of goodies from the latest collections. (I can dream, can't I?)

When I saw the instructions to the giveaway, I knew exactly which dress to post. Having visited your sight earlier in the week to help a friend find a 1960's party dress, it was not a question! I could totally see Betty Draper from Mad Men in this :)
