Today's Outfit: Material Girl



I love getting parcels and letters in the mail and it's even better when they're a surprise. So imagine my astonishment and delight at coming home to a parcel from The Bay containing a black sequined racerback tank top from Material Girl, the clothing line by Madonna and her daughter Lola. The Bay is slated to start carrying the Material Girl clothing line in spring 2011, but in the meantime they're selling these limited edition racerback tanks available in 9 different colours.

The tank is fully lined and the sequins are sewn on quite well--they lie flat and don't come off easily or scratch my skin. All in all, it's surprisingly good quality for a tank priced at $19.99. The rest of the Material Girl line is priced at $12-68 and is intended to "offer fashion lovers savvy style with amazing value" according to Bonnie Brooks in the accompanying press release. I'm usually pretty indifferent towards celebrity clothing lines, but if what Brooks said is true and Material Girl features some interesting pieces at good price points, I'd be curious about what the rest of the line looks like in-person.

  • Material Girl sequin tank
  • Zara black cami
  • Aritzia shirtdress
  • American Apparel leggings
  • Matiko over-the-knee boots
  • Timex watch
  • Wendy Brandes OMG rings


    • Wearing sequins in the evening is a no-brainer, but how do you wear a revealing racerback sequined tank during the day in a way that's work-appropriate? That was the challenge I set myself to prove how versatile this piece was. The solution: Layer a cami underneath and a shirtdress on top.

      While we're on the topic of the outfit above, how about those gorgeous OMG rings by Wendy Brandes? She's donating partial proceeds from jewelry sales to help a blogger in need. You can read more about the campaign here. $200 from the sale of every F#@!/OMG ring set will be donated, so if you've ever admired these rings on my humble little blog and wished for a set of your own, now is the time to buy them!

      3. Wendy's jewelry is amazing!!! I'm still not a proud owner, but hopefully one day!! :D I love the swear/omg rings...

        As for the Material Girl line, I've seen the bulk of it (they have it at my local Macy's)... I think it's okay for the price point. I do have one item, the skinny cargos. They fit quite well and for under $30 make my booty look awesome. I tried on the Jbrand skinny cargo's and they make my butt look flat. :(

        Hope you're having a wonderful day hun.

        xx Love & Aloha

      7. Any ideas on what you'll pair the racerback tank for a night time/party look? How can this piece go from day to night?

      9. Good to know that the top doesn't scratch skin... I've had enough of annoying sequins that do that! I can't believe those are rings! I thought you had written the font in while showing your nail colour, silly me. Haha. Anyway, I checked her site Wendy Brandes designs some amazing jewelry!

        Merry Christmas Lisa!

      12. What a cute top, Lisa! I have stayed away from the Material Girl line because I was worried it wasn't really my style, but I love the racerback tank. Oh and I'm totally in love with wearing sequins any time of the day ;)

      19. I like your day-to-night use! The racerback detail intrigues me on this dress. It's just a bit quirky and makes the piece so much more interesting!
