The Seven Year Itch

Yesterday’s blustery weather in the U.K. reminds me of probably the most iconic of all the photos of Marilyn Monroe.

This image reaffirms the necessity to wear pretty underwear; and leads nicely onto today’s vintage style fashion pick, on which I shall focus on lingerie.

All the items that I have selected are from

Bullet Bra Harlow Nouveau
