Material World — Are You a Material Girl?

Topping off my ooh-lala list for this week is Material World, a blog by Lourdes Leon aka Lola, aka, Madonna's 13-year old daughter.

Lola is a mini-fashionista blogging her way through the launch of her (and her mother's) new line Material Girl, premiering August 3rd. She writes about music, vintage trends and "teenage stuff".

I think it's absolutely brilliant that she is following in her mother's footsteps and capitalizing on the name that essentially made Madonna famous. Nothing wrong with passing the baton and keeping it all in the family.

I saw some previews of the collection. It has sort of an 80's vibe with a 2010 flow. I think it will be fantastic and can't wait till the arrival. 
Despite the target demographic, I may have to purchase a few pieces for myself! ;-)

Celebrate legacies!

Wednesday Wishes: Short & Sweet

Lately, I've developed an almost unhealthy obsession with cropped tops. They're versatile and look good with jeans, shorts and minis! You can dress them up or down, which to me makes them perfect. What's even better is they compliment almost anyone!
Today, I wish for cropped tops that lend flattering silhouettes and provide cool comfort for long summer days that turn into smoking hot nights: 

1. Daydrip Lace Cropped Top, $24
2. Sass & Bide Ava Grace Cropped Top, $300
3. TopShop Floral Bow Crop Top, $52
4. Metropark Olive Crop Tee, $26
5. Madison Marcus Cropped Button Tank, $210
6. Rebel Yell 'High On Love' Boyfriend Tee, $62

Celebrate all things short & sweet ... like me! :)

Independence Day

Happy July 4th! Today, I'm in Boston with the husband and friends. We're heading out to a BBQ, then later we'll be watching the fireworks in Cambridge near MIT. Should be a good night! 

Enjoy and be safe out there! :)
