For days when you're feeling simultaneously wholesome & wicked, take a sexy-smart page from the Marilyn Monroe playbook in flatteringly high-waisted & curve-friendly dark denim jeans. Freddies of Pinewood makes fabulous retro styled jeans from washable modern stretch-free denim, so you can enjoy the bombshell look...but still launder them often in your modern washing machine without worry. We're particularly enamored of this pre "Marilyn" pic of a fresh-faced, darker-tressed Norma Jean in a striped top & 50s cuffed jeans, and thanks to Freddies, you can now easily score the look - affordably! - with their red and white striped "50s top" (20 GBP) & Ton-Up Jeans (40 GBP) which also double as pedal pushers. All available at FreddiesOfPinewood.co.uk - and, yes, do breathe a sigh of relief because they ship wherever you are...stateside included.
