I love Marilyn

I love Marilyn Munroe, and yes I understand this would come as no sirprise. Not only is she one of my style gurus but I feel for the girl being three different dress sizes all at once! I imagine her sulking as the fabulous clothing she wishes to buy off-the-rack never fitting her bust AND being small enough across the back, pants never quite fitting her ass AND small waist and swimwear shopping well...a nightmare! Often as I have tried on 20 articles of clothing and am getting to the point of giving up, I indulge in thoughts of "What would Marilyn do?" and I walk out with nothing, only to go home and take in the waist of a pair of jeans, take up a hemline or fix an "old faithful" I've had in the mending pile for yonkers. Understandably Marilyn probably clicked her fingers and got one of her many plebs to do this for her, but hey the concept remains the same!

I stumbled upon a site of Marilyn-ism's and these just made me love her EVEN more...

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."  Ahhh the way I've lived, since the day I was born, much to my parents', hmm and many ex's dismay!

"Well behaved women rarely make history." See, I knew one day I'd find justification!

"I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't."

"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything." So true!

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."  Thanks, I'll have "absolutely rediculous"any day!
I love this last pic, this is Miss Munroe reading scripts on her sofa!!
BTW people often look at me strangely when I let out a shrill and say "Oh....Marilyn!" this is what you call it when your blissfully walking down the street and the wind tries to blow your dress up over your head! Just so you know...
