A Retro Girl’s Guide To Fashion, Beauty & Life

My mom always said I should have been born in another time. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with the quest for the perfect red lipstick, pencil skirt, peep-toe heels, leopard-print jacket, anything with black lace and, most recently, two-piece high-waisted bikini. I ache for a two-tone Chevy Bel Air to call my own and a bedroom dripping in boudoir lace, etched mirrors and beads.

I know there are lots of women out there just like me. So whether you’re looking to channel some old Hollywood glamour for an upcoming party or just want to know about the latest perfumes and rich body cremes to add to your bedroom vanity, then What Would Marilyn Do? is for you. Not surprisingly, a longing for simpler times is the strongest now than it’s ever been. With so many big name beauty brands and fashion labels appealing to the retro gal in all of us, we can easily channel our inner pin-up girl! I’ll show you how.
