I fell in love with this gorgeous Elizabeth and James dress ($420), which is so whimsical and playful, showing off the carefree personality of Marilyn. Paired with a simple strand of pearls with lace accents (Forever 21, $8) creates the perfect day-outfit for springtime.
I found this amazing Marilyn shirt from Forever 21 ($25) with a print on the front, and an open lace back. I'm all for casual day wear that has incredible detailing, and in turn this shirt becomes so versatile! I can see it paired with dark jeans and a blazer, or high waisted black shorts, with a great pair of heels.
Finally, I put together my favourite glam Marilyn Monroe outfit. Complete with a beaded black corset dress, patent nude pumps (Aldo, $80), and a matching "Marilyn" purse by Marc B** (Topshop, $78). Of course, the outfit wouldn't be complete without Chanel red lipstick, and the signature Chanel No. 5 perfume. A great outfit for a night out on the town to channel your inner old Hollywood star!
Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.
