The night before the Oscars, Chanel had a party at Madeo in Hollywood to celebrate one last get together before awards season ended. Since it was a Chanel party, most who attended were clad in Chanel from head to toe. The photos are so much fun...what do you think?
What did you think of the Oscars? I wasn't a fan, truth be told. Hope you have a great Monday!

It's been a while since I visited Barnes and Noble, ever since I purchased my Nook I have an online purchasing obsession. But, I'm glad I did, because I found the most amazing new book on Marilyn Monroe. A few months back, Vanity Fair featured an article on Marilyn Monroe's lost archives and provided pictures of some of the items in her long, lost filing cabinets.
Well, now there's a gorgeous, coffee-table style book that features the story behind the items, and a catalog of photos displaying the items. It is fascinating! The Barnes and Noble website says it is being released March 1, 2011, but it was in the store on Saturday. You have to get yourself a copy! It is amazing ($35).
I went shopping as promised for my new Harvey's Original Seatbelt Bag and ended up buying two bags and a wallet! LOL. I'm having a little trouble, however deciding on one more...and need your opinion. The black Stella style above is the one I purchased already.
So, here's my question, which one do you like as another fun bag?
Minnie Mouse special edition for Disneyland?
Help me out? Which one do you think, and why? Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! xoxo
I'm on way to find a new bag tomorrow (after months of searching) and I've decided to try a Harvey's Original Seatbelt Bag. I've never really seen the appeal of these bags, but am loving their new designs and want something different, so they fit. They even have a new Minnie Mouse line made for Disney! Hope you are having a great weekend, I will let you know what I find after my shopping trip!
Since today is Saturday, I thought it would be fun to post about one of my favorite things, Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. I'm not exactly sure why the Haunted Mansion fascinates me so, but I've loved it for as long as I can remember. It might have something to do with my fascination with death and the unknown? Anyway, it's my favorite ride at Disneyland, I have every book written on it, and learn something new about it all the time.
Do you love the ride as much as I do? What's your favorite ride at Disneyland? Share!

Behind the Inspiration
Many of you might not know I began this blog after being so inspired by Marilyn Monroe and all she was. I'm in love with old Hollywood and Marilyn embodies everything about it that I am inspired by. Who better to inspire me? Over the years, the blog has become less about Marilyn and more about me, my love of fashion, and appreciation for life, however I won't forget the inspiration that started it all, thus the name, "Blonde Episodes."
Blonde Bits By Marilyn
"Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?"
"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything."
"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."
"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets."
"I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it."
"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."
"I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made."
"Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."
"All a girl really wants is for one guy to prove to her that they are not all the same."
"A career is wonderful but you can't curl up with it on a cold night."
"If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
