1920s Pin-Up Girl Style

There's something oddly appealing about the early 20th century, specifically the 20s.  Maybe it was the wonderful new automobiles and the carefreeness that seemed so prevalent.  OR, maybe it was the sudden emergence of fashion hounds like Coco Chanel and the simplicity and playful feminism that seemed to emerge in fashion.  Recently, I've become sort of intrigued with the 1920's pin-up girl style, the sort of style major icons like Marilyn Monroe enjoyed so much.  Even today, pin-up girl style seems to be sticking around, with celebrities and fashion moguls turning up the heat in characteristic bold red-lipstick, wavy hair, fake luxurious eyelashes, dropping necklines, flared skirts, and sometimes the odd piece of hosiery.

The ultimate pin-up girl. Marilyn Monroe!
