Material Girls & Unlocked Fashion 3/31/10


--be forewarned: this blog post is a mashup of thoughts--

little fashionista
don't you just love little fashionistas? i think everyone knows by now that Madonna and her daughter Lourdes will launch an affordable fashion line for Macy*s with prices ranging from $12-$40 this fall.

the line will be called Material Girl. and i have to say, for a girl who is more than a decade younger than me, little Lola sure has mad style.

i'll keep you guys posted when this line finally comes out.

Fashion Vault
also, i just read that eBay just launched its Fashion Vault Site where it will provide flash sales of designer clothing at discounted prices. the flash sales will only last 48-72 hours at a time. you don't have to bid on anything. instead you go for the Buy Now option and eBay is taking care of the shipping costs. if you shop now, you can get up to 60% off the French Connection Group. stuff that was once $68 is now $27! so i will now be on eBay when not blogging.

Photographing Thought

i had to do a pre-wedding photo shoot the day after my bachelorette party (and surprisingly, the photos didn't turn out too shabby).
i thought i'd share one of my favorites with you all--if you care.
wedding is right around the corner!

also, it's official. i'm going to do a giveaway once i reach 200 followers! i love blog giveaways and i've been wanting to do one for a while now. i think 200 followers is a good number because i have this wedding thing coming up shortly so i can't do a giveaway until after. also, i've thought about some items to include but may add something from my honeymoon trip to europe--maybe something from H&M perhaps :)

so yeah, help me reach my 200 followers goal so we can get on this sure-to-be-wonderful giveaway (for my always wonderful followers)!

and check out Jessica's blog. she, too, really wants to do a giveaway but would like more followers, so please check out her great blog!

  28. OK... Maybe I love Tavi. no scratch that, she fascinates me. Actually it even makes me think on motherhood, she's just so cool and cleaver to be truth.

  29. I am so glad there were no paparazzi taking my picture at Lourdes’ age. Yikes!

    The picture of you and your hubby is just so so lovely. It’s fun to follow your plans. I am actually really exited about the wedding- is that weird?

    I'm glad we don't have to take any photos after the bachelor party, wouldn't turn out nearly as good.

    <3 u

  34. I did not know about the Material Girl line; thanks for sharing. What a perfect name from Madonna eh?

    Great pic of you and your Fiancée :)

  35. Check out my Fashion illustration giveaway, it would make a nice wedding gift for you. Congratulations.

  36. Damn, Lourdes looks just like Madge. Excited for their clothing line.

    Also: I'm so glad your wedding pictures came out well. I'm really interested to see some of the others now. 8 days!

  37. lourdes has really individual style that i personally wouldnt wear, but it works really well on her. ill be following, not just becuase i want the giveaway but because the blog is really entertaining.
    hope you can stop by mine some time.
    beeble xo

  38. What an absolutely gorgeous photo of you and your fiance!

    Lourdes is Madonna's essence through and through, wonder if she has the same personality traits. I don't usually pay mind to such things but I am looking forward to seeing Lourdes grow...Madonna was a big influence in my teenage years (yes I'm old!).

    Happy to have found your blog...
