Marilyn Monroe Madness!

Oh my goodness bloggers! I am so sorry I haven't been on top of my blogging lately! I have been so busy with so many things going on at school, but I will definitely make it up to you during the summer!

So a couple weeks ago I went to a awards ceremony for all the cast from the musical! The theme of the party was "Old Hollywood Glamour," which is like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, etc., and incase you haven't guessed, I dressed up like Marilyn Monroe!

                               Thrift Store Dress and Shoes, Antique Gloves, Styles Bracelet.

 Let me get this straight... no, I did not cut my hair (my mom would NEVER let me!) Half of my hair was braided and tucked in, and the rest was curled and tucked under. This look was so fun to create! It was a challenge too because I had never dressed "Old Hollywood" before. This dress was the first one I saw in the store and I knew it was just perfect! Then I found the gloves laying around in a bucket of hats and the the shoes off in the far corner in the store, and I had created this perfect vintage glamour look! I was actually inspired by Taylor Swift in her "Mean" music video for the hair, dress, AND makeup! So thank you Miss. Swift! I never actually shop in thrift/antique stores so this was a really fun experience for me! You would be surprised at what you can find laying around!
