As i was preparing for the River Island event last saturday, the matchy white dress gave me an idea to mimick the famous icon, Marilyn Monroe. Hence the curly hair from the top and the red lipstick. Sadly, i don’t have a beauty mark on top of my lip and there was so fan under my skirt.. hahaha so this probably my modern version of her, what do you think? :)
Top and Skirt from: APARTMENT8 Necklace and Earring from: SM ACCESSORIES Shoes from: CHARLES & KEITH
I’ve always admired how strongly believes in herself and even if i wasn’t alive in the time she was famous, her wise words still apply until now :) So here’s my top 3 favorite quotes of Marilyn Monroe :)
1. Just because you fail once, it doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything. keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself because if you don’t, then who will? 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.
2. if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best
2. A smart girl leaves before she is left.
