Marilyn Monroe Clothing Collection at Macy's

I'm really looking forward to checking out the mstylelab Marilyn Monroe clothing collection, available at Macy's March 1st. According to Macy's website, the collection will "will feature trendsetting styles. Look forward to fun, flirty clothes inspired by the timeless appeal of one of Hollywood's greatest legends." Although there's no clothing on the website yet, the ad campaign features some (or all?) of the collection. The clothes look really cute and affordable, but they are not reproductions of clothing that Marilyn actually wore. Rather, they seem to have the "essence" of Marilyn. I think Marilyn would have looked great in any of these outfits!

Striped Dress in XS-XL - $69.50
Vest in XS-XL - $49.50

Cropped Cardigan in XS-XL - $39.50
Lace Bustier Top in XS-XL - $29.50
Jeans in 24-33 - $49.50

Denim Jacket in XS-XL - $59.50
Graphic T-shirt in XS-XL - $29.50
Jeans in 24-33 - $49.50

Gingham Top in XS-XL - $39.50
Denim Shorts in 24-33 - $39.50
The top is very "Elly May Barbie" but I like it. The denim shorts have cute lipstick prints on the peek-a-boo pockets.

Printed Dress in XS-XL - $59.50
This is probably the only thing I've seen in the collection that resembles something Marilyn actually wore. The style of the dress isn't the same, but the cherry print on white is somewhat similar to a dress Marilyn wore in The Misfits.

Denim Vest in XS-XL - $49.50
Lace Dress in XS-XL - $69.50
