Want to look like Marilyn Monroe? Head to Macy's
Is it spring yet? Warm enough to wear sundresses again? The weatherman says it will be this weekend, and I'm glad, because I really want this dress.
It's from Macy's new Marilyn Monroe-inspired line. The collection, which features figure hugging cardigans, flirty skirts and plenty of bustiers, became available this month.
It seems to be a little sparse on color (everything's pretty much white, black or red), but I actually don't mind. I'm still drawn to it, mainly because of my affection for Marilyn. As gorgeous as she was, she just seemed to make fashion accessible ... to real women. You look at her and think: If she can fit that over HER curves, maybe it'll look good on MINE too.
There are some misses in Macy's collection though. There are a handful of rompers, like this one, that made me scratch my head. And plenty of peplum tops that seem tired.
Anyway, click though the slideshow to check out some of the items in the collection. And tell us what you think of the clothes. Here's a link to what's in store so far.
