Fragments

Thursday, October 14, 2010
As far as I can remember Marilyn Monroe was someone I loved reading about. Just days ago a new book was published about her entitled "Fragments". It's a never-before-seen collection of  letters, poems and notes she wrote to herself. On an exciting sidenote, the book contains scanned images of the originals in Marilyn's own handwriting. I am also looking forward to see some rare, intimate photos.
Dears, who is going to have this addition to their home book collection? Love. xoxo

Ps: Here is a fun fact for you: Did you know that her hair was naturally brown but she's dyed it blonde?

(thanks, Justine)

I love Marilyn! Can't wait to get this book (I'm wincing with one eye closed until I see the price). I knew that her hair was brown in her Norma Jean days.. gorgeous then too. I have to finish reading 'DVF: A Signature Life' first though..
