My Favorite Necktie Today - The Marilyn Monroe Postage Stamp Tie

Marilyn Monroe Postage Stamp Necktie
"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle," Marilyn Monroe

The lady said it so, and what better way to shine then wearing a fabulous novelty necktie illustrating the Marilyn Monroe U.S. Postage Stamp. She is without question the sexiest woman to ever walk on Earth.  It is more than 63 years that she was found dead in her Los Angeles home at the very youthful age of 36 however, she is still the very much the sensation that she became.  A "sex" symbol surely, though considered a Goddess my men young and old to this day.

the first issue of 'Playboy'
In 1953 Hugh Hefner purchased the nude photos of Monroe taken years earlier for $500 that graced the cover of the first issue of Playboy and the "Sweetheart" spread ( later to be called "Playmate" of the month ). She had been paid only $50 for that photo shoot.  Not unlike every man to ever live, he has always been obsessed with her, although they never met. She had a charisma that is as uncommon as possible, absolutely intoxicating.

On June 1, 1995, The U.S. Postal Service released the first of a series of Hollywood Stars Stamps.  The debut illustrated Marilyn Monroe in an iconic pose with her signature across the top. In honor of what would have been her 69th birthday 400 million copies were.  The 32 cent stamp was designed by award-winning artist Michael Deas.

Our post in April 2011 Marilyn Monroe Sexy Ties - A brief biography including many note-worthy quotes by her and by those who loved her.

A Genius and a Beauty
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember sisters, make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.” Marilyn Monroe
