💋 (also taking a bit of a stand posting this. The past two times I’ve posted these quotes I made, I’ve been trolled. I really struggle with my mental health and when you write abusive comments, it can have a very negative effect on how I am feeling. Please be mindful what you say on the internet. I’m a real person who has this account for fun and a bit of escapism. And it’s sadly made me stop posting as much and enjoying this account. But I’m taking my power back and I’m asking for all of us to be kind to one another. We are all in this together.)

Reposted from @sin_skye (@get_regrann) - Wow, what a busy week, I haven’t had time to post!
I had a great time at the #burlesqueblossoms2019 newcomers’ night a week ago! I helped the producers (@bibi_burlesque) with the sales table and watched wonderful new performers ❤️❤️ ... and my hair was going all modern Marilyn. 😄
@darkersideofmarilynmonroe (@get_regrann) - "Many have even linked the star's addiction to barbiturates and painkillers - which lead to her death when she was just 36 years old - to her endometriosis, but this has never been proven.
Whatever other demons she was battling in her last few years, we know one thing for sure: that Marilyn Monroe, whose beauty and charisma seemed sometimes unattainable, had more in common with the average woman than we ever care to remember...." _ taken from article on mamamia.com.au
@darkersideofmarilynmonroe (@get_regrann) - "I'm a failure as a woman. My men expect so much of me, because of the image they've made of me, and that I've made of myself, as a sex symbol. They expect bells to ring and whistles to whistle, but my anatomy is the same as any other woman's and I can't live up to it...." - MM.
The story of the potato sacks.
The first picture is by Earl Thiessen and ran in Look Magazine, October 1951. The idea was Marilyn would look good in anything - including a potato sack.
The second photo is one from a set by Fox studio photographer - Gene Kornman. They were run in February of 1952. After Marilyn wore a red Cassini to the Henrietta Awards, a columnist supposedly said she looked unstylish and vulgar. This story sometimes includes the columnist snidely remarking Marilyn would have looked better in a potato sack. Playing off of that, Fox had Travilla whip up a potato sack dress which Marilyn accompanied with various jewels - showing she could look glamorous even in burlap.
Had the most jam packed, fun, busy 3 days of birthday celebration for my stepson on his 10th birthday 🎈🌈⚡️💥 with a whole gang of boys staying on Friday night 🤪 (they broke all the air beds 🤣), paintballing yesterday, more games today and now about to embark on some major monopoly and Lego building. Headscarf covering hair so greasy, I could fry an egg on it 🤣 but I’ve never worn it in this 70s style way and really kinda digging it 🧡✌🏼🌼🌻 and generally just a very happy Sunday ☺️🌼

“In every generation there was a woman who gripped the imagination of the continent. Today is it Vivien Leigh, because of her greatness as an actress, because of her personality and charm and in spite of her good looks.” ~Orson Welles
