Lola’s Latest: The Joys of Folding Underwear

Aloha to all, I trust your summers were spent well and you got nothing very productive done because that’s usually how I spend mine. If you’re someone who leaves summer reading to the last week of summer you know what I’m talking about. Actually this summer I was SURPRISINGLY productive. So, I thought I would tell you all about the joys of folding underwear. As you probably know this woman I like to call my mother went on tour for her MDNA album. As a summer job I decided to work in the wardrobe department. All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too.  Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun. Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes.  Thirty seconds to totally dress a sweaty dancer can be insane and provoke mucho anxiety.  Doing this night after night was pretty cray, but I loved every minute of it!


Besides being able to travel the world and visiting all these amazing countries (my favorites were Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Turkey) it’s really a great experience to be able to work on a large production, traveling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose. I developed really good relationships with a number of people, not just in wardrobe but in other departments too. Dancers, singers, sound crew, catering, etc. To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.

Besides summer coming and leaving faster than you can say ohmygoditsaflyingpigwithgreenfeetandnobutthole, the school year has officially started for those you who are still students. When I get ready for school in the moring I move at a slothlike pace and music gets me slightly more motivated.



Here are a few fave songs that I would recommend:

-Lana Del Rey; National Anthem

-Yeah Yeah Yeah’s; Heads will roll ( A-Track Remix)

-Slightly Stoopid; Closer to the sun

-Skrillex; Kyoto

-Peaches; Mommy Complex

-Neon Indian; Hex Girlfriend

-Grimes; Oblivion

-Fiona Apple; Criminal

-Friends; Friend Crush.

Okee so those are a few of my idontwanttogotoschoolbutiwillforcemyselfto

sounds. As for back to school clothes – my go-to article of clothing has been American Apparel’s circle scarf. It’s so versatile – there are tons of ways you can wear it.

Hope all of you guys had and are having a great start to your school year always remember to choose hugs not drugs because THAT’S always been MY moto.

Stay in school bitches and make sure you are getting proper nutrients all day urrday.

PEACE!

Lola.xo

  16. LOLA <3

    Last year around this time I saw you shopping (in an undisclosed location) I told you "your mom saved my life since I was 6 years old." I knew deep down that however excited I was to see you that I had to protect your privacy and let you shop in peace. Hope nobody else spotted you that night. Tried my best to remain calm lol Hope you didn't think i was a mental case. THEN i saw you a week later for your "lucky star" search @ Macys and as you were walking to the escalator you said Hi to me. Thank you for being so down to earth. With your material girl collection being the success that it is would you ever consider making a "material boy" line? I know you have the connections to have any well know model you desire but if you chose me i would donate all money earned to "raising malawi" or "spirituality for kids". In my opinion, the next search for either Material girl or future Material boy SHOULD have to do something good for the world with there earnings. Starting their own charitable organization or simply donating to a pre-existing organization.

    Yankee stadium September 8th was my 10th MADONNA show in my 23 years of living

    Proud that mom and uncle on speaking terms again.
    Proud of all of you.
    Thanks for being my role models

  19. You got quite a taste in music, eh.
    If you ever see this, I’d like to recommend a song to you. Well, actually a band. It’s called Psapp, they made Grey’s Anatomy opening theme. They’re insanely cool.
    Have a great school year (I’m finishing mine actually next month – The beauty of opposite sides of the world).

  21. Very nice post. I hope you follow your own advice and stay away from drugs and things of that nature. Keep your eye on the ball, stick to your goals and plans for the future and try to ignore the distractions. Don’t do whatever other people are doing, I know that’s harder said than done when you’re surrounded by teens in NYC, but you’re so much better than that, so don’t sell yourself short. I’m glad you sound more mature and focused. Your mom worked so hard all her life and continues to do so until this day; she’s such an amazing artist and person, I hope you’re able to carve out your own space for yourself too with dedication and focus. Lots of love to you and your family <3

  27. It would make much more sense if you were to model the Material Girl line, Lola. There’s only one girl in the world that looks just like Madonna – it’s you.

    Girls would go nuts for the clothes. Think about it.

    i am so glad i found your blog.i am an iranian girl.i have always loved your mum.i remember years ago when i was a kid and my so religious family didnt let me listen to music,i had to beg my classmates to bring me Madonna’s songs and also some others’,and we were so cautious,because if they knew what we were doing,they might have punished us so badly.so,lots of memories with all songs of Madonna.
    i think you are so cute and lovely and i send u hugs and kisses from Iran,Tehran.

Being a fashion design major at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, I had no idea what was involved in the production of wardrobe behind your mom’s fantastic show (I just saw it in Seattle). It seems like the work is a fashion runway show on steroids. I hope someday to experience what you went through this summer for my internship. Desi from Oregon/Washington

Great job on your wardrobe work!
