[#641] Goodbye Norma Jean

 

And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Elton John, ♫Candle In The Wind♫

 

Even though my coverage for Vintage Fair is still growing strong, this for me would certainly be considered the penultimate entry in the series for the event. One of the most highly sought after items there is the Monroe Skin by LAQ. With 9 tones to choose from, any avatar can become an iconic timeless beauty with which to gather awe from those around them.

6 months ago if someone would have told me that I’d be blogging female items and doing a decent job of it I’d have probably look at them cock-eyed. This has truly been a really good experience and has allowed me to step up my creative ability. “Candle In The Wind” is probably one of my all time favorite songs done by Elton John and there was no other choice for this blog but to use that song even if the potential for other bloggers to use it was great. To me it epitomizes the tribute song in so many ways and though Miss Monroe was well before my time, as I was growing up I learned quite a bit about her through discussions from people around me and what I’d seen on television. She set the bar for what an actress should be even though behind the camera everything was not as glamorous.

To further make myself fabulous, I am wearing the Evelyn Dress by Salt & Pepper. This beautiful gown is elegant and would definitely catch attention at formal function with the jewels and plunging neckline. I am showcasing the Fatpack so the choice for colors made it hard for me to decide on what to go with but my instincts told me that red was the way to go.

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
