Material Girl went to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ tour, The Heist, in the MSG theatre and THEY ROCKED IT!!! The boys had a live band (always the best) and kept us on our feet the entire show! Macklemore’s story of his path to success is heartwarming and he’s using it as positive influence through his AMAZING music. He’s changing the game of hip hop by showing you that creativity doesn’t have to be triggered by vices and that you can make it by just following your dream and chasing the feelings that excite you!
HARD WORK ALWAYS PAYS OFF
Happy Fall almost winter everyone! The days of buttmeat shorts and pieces of fabric we like to call croptops are behind us. Ahead, lie the endless months of sniffling noses and all things wool. I feel like the transition into winter is the worst. It’s not cold enough to come out in a giant fluffy parka because you would look like an idiot, but it’s also not warm enough for a jean jacket…are ya with me?
ANYWAYS, I figured I would talk about the most obvious recent event called HALLOWEEEEEEEN (My favorite holiday ever). It’s great for people of all ages; as a kid, you get to get dressed up as your favorite Disney princess or power ranger or superhero and go from house to house demanding candy and swallowing buckets of sugar. The best part of this is your parents can’t even yell at you about rotting teeth and that is awesome. As an adult you get to dress up however inappropriately and go to parties and do stupid things and “it’s ok because it is Halloween”. I mean we have all seen Mean Girls!
Every year in New York, the Halloween parade is in Greenwich Village and its absolutely mental. The sights change from year to year, but you can always count on seeing; 7 to 10 sets of bare boobs ( accidental or on purpose there’s no way of knowing), 80 to 100 people in drag (always good), and 3 full body, very realistic penis costumes (oh.). If you are ever in New York around Halloween time I strongly suggest watching the parade for guaranteed Lol’s , lmao’s and rofl’s.
This year, I went as Riff Raff the rapper. Look him up, he is a true artist and beautiful lyricist who will surely go down as one of the great talents of our generation. Possible crush not gonna lie. Other great costumes at my school included “ No Face” from Spirited Away, boys dressed up as slutty little kittens, and a stalk of broccoli. I hope your Halloween was equally fun and interesting.
For fall fashion this year, I must admit I’ve become somewhat of a sneaker head. I think the other day I spent an hour making sneakers on Nike ID. If you are a procrastinator – NEVER GO ON NIKE ID. You will not leave the page. Other than sneakers, I’ve become a huge fan of hoops of any kind; big, small, gold, silver, you name it. If you don’t want to wear a huge puffy parka for winter, I suggest letterman jackets. You can find them in thrift stores usually and not only are they fun jackets but they’re warm and comfortable as hell.
Music wise I’ve been listening to a lot of deep house music, I find it’s very chill but you can also dance to it, which is why I like it so much. Some of my favorite artists are Black Coffee, Friend Within, Bondax, Mike Mago, MK and Karma Kid. If you are a Lana Del Rey fan, MK has some truly sick remixes of her songs. I’ve loved dubstep for a long time and my brother and I are currently obsessed with the song Purple Daze by Minnesota. I got a great pair of speakers for my birthday, and when I put the song on, my ears were blown off, you should really check the song out.
Well that concludes it for today on the MG Blog, stay warm 4 winter, drink tea, wear earmuffs and don’t forget to wipe front to back!
Material Girl, Rita Ora, looked absolutely stunning at this weekends EMA’s! The sleek black dress never fails and she was even caught gold grillin’ in the most chic way possible.
