Iconic Friday | MJ & Farrah Fawcett

24 hours later and the whole world is already drying tear streaks. With the rate information travels these days, we all knew moments after it happened that the most famous Moonwalking, sparkle glove wearing, high pitched singing entertainer of many generation’s time had passed. Adding feathered Farrah Fawcett to the day’s demise and it was truly a double depressed Thursday, June 24th. Both of these outstanding folks left musically and hairdo legacies behind for us to enjoy for the duration of our lifetimes.

In homage of MJ, Amber and I decided to deck out each of our models tomorrow night in a different era of Micheal’s fashion fortes. We’ve got Jackson 5 through Black & White and it will be spectacular.

And I might just go ask for, “the Farrah Fawcett” down at the salon later.

Iconic Friday | Marlon Brando

First, respect and thanks paid to one of my besties, Ragen Fykes, for the inspiration to continue the trend she started long ago when she diligently posted a weekly boy fetish called, Man Friday, on the blog that she and I share. It was a brilliant idea and one that I know a lot of us enjoyed and looked forward to each week. It was like, Happy Friday! Here’s a present! At least that’s how I felt every Friday. So, in ode to her and her fabulousness and for the heart and growth of our business blog, Amber and I are super duper excited to begin Iconic Friday, a weekly kiss blown to one of our favorite and most juicy icons from the past. Especially with regard to their personal fashion and style statement to the world.

Enough emo blabbing. Amber’s pick this week is none other than Mr. Marlon Brando. His younger (and umm, more handsome) days were spent lounging around Hollywood film sets in plain white tees and ribbed wife beaters, cuffed and worn-in blue jeans, black motorcycle jackets, sometimes zippered plaid wool coats, sailor and newsboy caps and dock shoes. Simple, sexy, rugged and masculine, without trying hard or ever looking like he would be afraid to get his hands dirty.

Until next week! And please, drop us a note at support@monstervintage.com to let us know who you’d like to stare at on your computer screen for more Iconic Friday posts. We’ll shout you out! Woot.
