This week I have been burying my head in loads of books about Marilyn Monroe. This is for my fashion muse essay at uni. She is such a fascinating person to read about, she really was a beautiful woman.
The amount of photographs in these books is insane, they show Marilyn in so many different lights from cheeky and fun to serious and even worried.
The inspiration for this outfit is taken from the most iconic photograph of Marilyn, from the film: 'The seven year itch'.
The outfit is very simple, as you don't need much to recreate such an iconic scene. The dress is from Topshop; the shimmer skater dress which is £48. The shoes are from ASOS.com called Peter Jensen Simple White Heeled Sandals and they are a lot more expensive, however this is quite a bit trend coming in for summer so they hopefully will be in New Look amongst other high street shops very soon.
