The Material Boy #179

Old Theme Song from the 70's:

Someone remix the theme song and now it sounds great for clubbing!:

Diane Von Furstenberg 'Wonder Woman' Tote Bag

At last, my favourite heroine of all time is featured on a fashion luxury brand! Diane Von Furstenberg is doing a special collection featuring the star spangled heroine, Wonder Woman! This is one comic character whom I have adored and grown up with! I am a huge fan as a kid with the 'Linda Carter' TV shows (The theme song is super cheesy but catchy:-) and also the 'Super Friends' cartoons. I also collect her toy figures and comic books! I learned how to draw the human form because I was fascinated by a colouring book of Wonder Woman! And I remembered a time when young where I use toilet rolls, cut them into half and use them as the bracelets. Or even make my own tiara...embarassingly. (Kids do stupid things. I would not attempt that at this age:-P Hahaha.) Oh my...the infuences of this powerful heroine is endless!

So now, it is with extreme excitement to see her inspiring Diane Von Furstenberg for high fashion! Especially this 'Wonder Woman Tote bag'. I want this tote. Nathaniel (www.fallapart84.blogspot.com) just got one....I am so envious! I wish I lived in US now!

It's a huge tote and definitely my style. Proceeds from the sale of the collection will benefit Vital Voices and empower women worldwide. It's best of both worlds to shop and contribute to a good cause!

(BTW, Wonder Woman animated movie is coming to DVD Feb 2009! Woohoo!)
