I got my first Marilyn Monroe hoodie when I was a kid. My mom loved Marilyn’s movies and on most weekends we would watch one. During my teenage years I started reading her autobiography and other books about her life.
I struggled a bit during that time so I drew a lot of strength from knowing how tough she was. She became my guardian angle in a way.
Why Hoodies and Sweatshirts
I’m from Minnesota where we get long cold winters. I think this helped push me towards my idea for the website. I had a few other types of clothing, but 80% of my Marilyn Monroe stuff was a hoodie or a sweatshirt.
I loved thrift shopping and one of my all time favorite finds was a 1970s sweater featuring a collage of vintage Marilyn Monroe photos. I find it so fascinating that people have been making Marilyn sweaters and sweatshirts for the last 50 years. I figure if I post as many hoodies as I can find here then over time it will be fascinating to see how they reflect each new generations twist on Marilyn Monroe.
I hope to grow this website into a place that has every Marilyn Monroe hoodie, sweater, or sweatshirt ever made. Its tough because some of them are discontinued and very difficult to find, however I can at least track down information about them and post a picture.
