LIFE Archives: Marilyn and Joe
10/02/2011 § Leave a comment
With Valentine’s Day approaching,
my mind has been turning to great love stories…
The marriage of film siren Marilyn Monroe and Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio, which lasted less than a year, has always stood out to me as one of most passionate affairs in history. The joining of these two superstars proved too explosive to sustain, but the love they shared was to endure forever.
For twenty years after Marilyn’s death,
Joe continued to send roses to her grave twice a week.

Channel a bit of Marilyn for your Joe (or while looking for your Joe) with these lovely Garbo earrings by DANNIJO — that feel just a bit mid-century modern.
