Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!

by Anne Middleton, on June 1st, 2015

Happy Birthday to Marilyn Monroe, who famously said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”  In memory of the blonde bomb shell that still haunts our imaginations decades after her death, we’ve curated some Marilyn-inspired shoes. 

The fearlessly feminine sexy caged sandal in gold by Boston Proper is a natural dress-up choice for Marilyn-lovers.  Modern, with a touch of old Hollywood glamor these shoes our great for any soiree you would attend.  Boston Proper offers 10% off when you sign up for their emails too!

Arguably no woman is as ubiquitous in popular culture or has as much longevity in our consciousness as Marilyn, who even after her death has consistently remained in IMDB’s top 5000 actress of all time.  Avant gard pop artist Andy Warhol keyed into the Marilyn mystique as well.  Converse has created a fun line of sneakers inspired by Warhol.  The Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol is a great about-the-town sneaker and we’re sure Marilyn would adore it too.  Get $5.95 flat rate shipping using our codes.

If you find yourself snowed in waiting for the Bus Stop, it’s helpful to have a reliable pair of boots.  UGG’s waterproof Thomsen Boots are understated and stylish.  Perhaps Marilyn wasn’t understated, but she certainly was stylish and that’s why think these boots are perfect.  They’re a classic, like her.  With free shipping and free returns on all orders using our codes, you’ll love UGG for years to come.

Marilyn certainly was a proponent of personal fitness and even seemed to be into yoga before it became wildly popular in the US.  She also lifted weights.  Besides a good training shoe, we suspect Marilyn would have loved the Nike Studio Wrap 3, perfect for yoga and dance activities.  Nike offers free shipping on all orders over $75 using our codes.  Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but our codes come in a close second!

Your shoes will never be a misfit when you shop using our codes. As Marilyn said, “Fear is stupid and so are regrets,” so march forward today in some new shoes using our codes!
