#137 Monroe (Marilyn) Style

I have a captivation with all things Retro! From 1930-1980 and all years in betwixt. Thinking that I mentioned my love for Audrey Hepburn, in an earlier blog, I thought today would be a great day for me to give you an Amethest spin on Marilyn Monroe.

(Poses by Glitterati also dress available here at this link as well.)
Marilyn is known for her beauty. However what few recognize is that she was very intelligent as well. There are many quotes you can find from her, and here is one of my very favorites: "This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monre, if she had lived, is probably the only person who could have created a habit of being happy. I do not know many who could. However, I believe that she could have.
