MIDDLEBURY — If Marilyn Monroe were a hipster, she just might be Abigail Wentz ? the baker at Carol’s Hungry Mind Cafe and Middlebury Inn. Instead of Monroe’s signature beauty mark, Wentz rocks a piercing. In place of golden curls, Wentz caps her head with a loose toque. The two share similar alabaster skin, but Wentz has colored hers with thoughtful ink, right down to her knuckles that read “HAND WORK.”
Though Wentz chooses layers of cotton and colorful tights over fur and floor length dresses, she has placed Monroe squarely on a pedestal.
