The Cosmo Girl's Guide to the New Etiquette

Time travel with me back in time to 1971, when this sadly out of print book was published. It's a time when women needed advice on matters like how to keep your wig on when you go water skiing or what countries will allow an unmarried couple to rent a room (USA is a no). Some of the advice is still quite useful, like pronunciations and explanations of various foreign food, and of course you can never go wrong with a warning against rhinestones and satin pumps in the office (whoops!) An entertaining book full of vintage advice. PS Unlit candles at a party? Tacky.
