Inspired by My Week With Marilyn

Last weekend, I finally saw My Week With Marilyn.  I’ve been slightly enamored with Michelle Williams ever since I saw her in Blue Valentine and was really interested to see how she would portray the legendary Marilyn Monroe.  Well, Michelle was riveting. She was so effortlessly magnetic that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.  The movie made me long for a time when fashion was crisp, clean, and glamorous.  When you would throw on a khaki pencil skirt to go walking in the garden.  Although her life was, in the end, a tragic story, something that I loved about Marilyn’s character (both in life and in the film) was that she was able to find magic in the smallest things.  Her charisma was consuming, and I’m hoping to use the film as inspiration to add a little more glamour to my everyday routine.

    You make me want to go berry picking in a pencil skirt now 😉
