Giveaway #2 - The Gospel According to Coco Chanel

 THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!  THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

I'm doing an entire week of giveaways here on the blog! If you follow the Couture Allure Facebook page, you know I've been downsizing my personal research library over the past couple of months.  Most of the vintage books are being offered for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop, and more will be added this week.  However, there are several that I want to give away as gifts to my devoted followers here on the blog.  I know I neglected you last month, and I hope these gifts will make up for it!

The winner of yesterday's giveaway of the book "Marilyn Monroe Unseen Archives" is Yvonne*!!!!

Congratulations Yvonne!  I'll be emailing you shortly for your address so I can send your book.

Today's giveaway is the book "The Gospel According to Coco Chanel" by Karen Karbo.  This is the hardcover version published in 2009 and it is in pristine condition.

Now, I'm not going to lie and tell you this is the best book I've ever read, but if you are enchanted by all things Chanel, it will be an entertaining read.

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Wednesday, February 13, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information.  And stay tuned for another giveaway every day this week!

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $12.00 - $18.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!

I would love to have this book! (Like I need another book around here) Coco was a fascinating woman and hung out with some very interesting folks. The inspirations went both ways. Btw, love your blog. I actually hang out here regularly! Karen in Milwaukee (aka Biddyjon)

I just would love to get that book for my sweet 85 year old mother in-law. She has been sawing and working with patterns/materials/dresses since she was 14. She even made some pure silk kimonos for some Japanese customers. She is a perfectionist. Congrats for your blog!
