Every June 1 I do something in rememberence of and to celebrate Marilyn. Last year I wrote this about Marilyn, "Though she wasn't exactly a fashion trendsetter she was an icon who could work it with a few really great dresses. "
Did you know Marilyn had three real life weddings? For her first marriage her guardian managed to find her a full length satin A-line to marry boy next door, Jim Doherty. Her next two weddings were rush events. She married Joe DiMaggio in a dark suit with an ermine collar; Arthur Miller in a lightweight daytime dress with a fly away veil. My favorite Marilyn dress comes from her Arthur Miller phase, a cotton eyelet with a full skirt.
