Madonna’s 13 year-old daughter Lourdes has written a blog entry about her new junior’s fashion line for Macys, Material Girl. It’s funny, cute, and Lourdes comes across like a normal 13 year-old girl. She explains that she’s inspired by 80s fashion and vintage clothing. She also writes about her favorite band and says she’s excited to get the chance to dye her hair for the first time once she turns 14. Lourdes is technically the creative director for the line, which Macy’s credits to her mother, Madonna. According to Madonna it’s all Lourdes’ work, though, and she was only peripherally involved. Here’s a segment of Lourdes’ blog, with more at the source:
Helluuur thurrrr, I’m Lola and this is my first blog entry so it’s kind of like ummmm….
I’m just going to use this blog entry to tell y’all a little bit about myself. I’m 13 and I’ll be 14 in October, so I can’t wait for that because I am FINALLY allowed to dye my hair… THANK YOU MOTHER!! My favvvv color is black (just because it goes with everything) and my least favorite color is brown (because it resembles the color of something QUITE gross).
I am totally obsessivo about 80’s shorts… You know the kind that makes your butt look kinda big, with a grunge-looking shirt tucked in. It’s kinda nerdy but I love it. And the 80’s are another huge obsession of mine, which is totally amazingly awesome because Material Girl…HELLO! It’s like 80’s themed, which pretty much rocks, so yeah. I’m still in love with brogues or as some people call them “oxford shoes”. I haven’t found a good sandal so I’m on like a search right now.
I’m in London right now and the best stores ever here,I love the vintage stores down in Whitechapel, also a lot of hot guys hang there just in case y’all care. Music wise My Chemical Romance is THE BEST BAND EVER for realzzzz. They are so awesome it hurts. If you don’t know who they are just… go away OR download their songs.
So, as you may know, Material Girl is coming out soon… HOLLA HOLLA! Ok and this is pretty awesome I will send a FREE t-shirt to the first person who can tell me in which big store the opening of Material Girl is….how cool rigghhhhhht???Annnnnnd I am 4 realz excited for the opening which I will give you the exact dates for in my next blog entry, so stay tuned for more.
I grew up in the 1980s and at one point my fashion sense was influenced by Sixteen Candles and Desperately Seeking Susan. I wore headbows, bangle bracelets and menswear jackets and went through a short-lived neon phase. In theory it sounds cute and harmless to bring back 80s fashion but from the brief samples I’ve seen of Lourdes’ line it looks like crap Taylor Momsen would wear. It’s all a little too short and a little too provocative, with bustiers showing bare midriffs and cleavage and short tutu skirts.
Yesterday while visiting relatives I witnessed my cousin’s 11 year-old daughter trying to argue the case for some jean shorts that just about pushed the limit of acceptable leg coverage. They weren’t too revealing, but they were tight. “Mom,” she said “these aren’t like Miley Cyrus’s shorts.” We used to say that we weren’t as bad as Madonna.
