Vintage Inspiration: Marilyn and Friends

So last week I talked about sitting in my parents basement when I was a kid watching old movies and TV shows.  A favorite was How to Marry a Millionaire from 1953 starring Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable.  If you like 50's fashion I highly recommend it as it does include a fashion show as all three ladies work as model.  They team up to get a penthouse apartment so they can meet millionaires that they hope to marry.  It is quite cute and funny so if you are looking for something light this is for you.

Ps I love Marilyn in catseyes maybe that is why i like to wear them myself.


  1. I love Marilyn so much, she had such a tragic life, but being remembered with programmes like this make is so much more memorable and shows what a beautiful person she really was.

  2. This is one of my favorite films, no doubt! You're right, it is a fashion show of the 50, wonderful! And cat's eye glasses are on my wish list too ...

  3. Hello, I just discovered your blog this past week and read your post about wanting a pink bathtub. My husband and I are in the process of renovating a house that we recently purchased and are looking to get rid of ours. It is a left hand drain tub and it is in good condition. We live in Wisconsin. If you are still interested or have any questions. I can be reached at
