I’m 32 years old… which means, I was the prime age when Madonna was the Material Girl! I cannot believe I’m actually going to post this photo here… but, I can’t help myself – given the topic!
Yup… that’s me in the 1990’s (notice the Madonna poster behind me). I have absolutely always loved Madonna. When I was a pre-teen, I dressed up as Madonna for Halloween. Leggings with lace ruffle on the bottom. Jean jacket with black tank underneath. And who could forget the mole. When I was in my teens (see photo above), I used to pretend I was as cool as Madonna. There was just always something about Madonna. There’s a mystique around her that is very powerful… still is. It’s a confidence. It’s a state of mind. She’s Madonna. The Material Girl. Her “Material Girl” video is still one of my favorites. Even as I’m sitting here typing this… I’m drifting off into the lyrics of the song.
Which brings me to this very cool announcement – Macy’s is launching “Material Girl” by Madonna and her daughter Lola at Macy’s Herald Square this Tuesday – August 3rd at 10AM – with a special appearance by celebrity muse, Taylor Momsen of Gossip Girl.
The first 200 customers in line at the Macy’s Herald Square main Broadway entrance at 10 AM will receive a free bandeau top from the “Material Girl” collection and a $10 gift card valid only on August 3.
Shoppers are encouraged to dress in their Madonna best at Macy’s between 10 AM and 11 AM for a chance to win a t-shirt signed by the Material Girl herself!
The good news for me… I’ll be in NYC that day and will be trying to make it over there as one of the first 200 in line!
Personally, I cannot wait to view this Collection that’s sold exclusively at Macy’s. It’s made up of apparel, footwear, handbags and jewelry. The Fall 2010 “Material Girl” is all about prints and embellishments. A mix of hard and soft elements, like a tutu dress and studded combat boots, or an oversized boyfriend sweatshirt with a floral print mini skirt. The best part… price points are between $12 to $40.
Oh, yes… I’m a Material GIRL!
