The Blue Gardenia came to me with a giveaway idea that was so good, I wish I could win it myself. The prize is a double-whammy of vintage glamour: a Julie Hewett lipstick and this very Mad Men vintage pattern.
The pattern is Advance 3446, bust 34", still in factory folds. I love the classic-but-sexy lines of the simple sheath and cropped jacket.
And to complete your look! A Julie Hewett lipstick in Belle Noir, a summery coral red. Why have I never heard of this line until now?! Julie Hewett was the makeup artist on the film Pearl Harbor, and she was inspired by the 1940s looks to create the perfect line of highly-pigmented, long-lasting red lipsticks. These lipsticks get rave reviews, and this particular coral red is supposedly the "Grace Kelly of lipsticks." In other words, I know you want it.
So to win both of these fab goodies, just leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on this Saturday, June 19th. Readers from all locations are eligible. I'll announce the winner on Sunday.
A big, huge thanks to Denise of the The Blue Gardenia for sponsoring this fantastic giveaway! Everyone now: THANKS, DENISE!
