MM.LaFleur specializes in dressing the modern, fashion forward, working woman creating looks that are refine, chic, and empowering. They name their pieces after women whose careers inspire them. We flipped out when we came across the “Rowling Top”, a beautifully draped top that can go from day to night, giving each look an effortless, chic feel. (Comes in three colors: shell, birch, and black – priced at $145.)

“The Rowling Top” – BUY HERE

We spoke to MM.LaFleur, asking them what made them name a product after J.K. Rowling:

We wanted to name a product after J.K. Rowling because she is a woman whose career we admire. A self-made woman (and working mom!) whose talent for storytelling has captivated millions of people around the world, she is a testament to what it means to pursue your passion. At MM.LaFleur, we celebrate “women of purpose”—and J.K. Rowling is exactly that. She is also a woman of great courage. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Rowling wrote, “You sort of start thinking everything is possible if you’ve got enough nerve.” We love this sentiment, and we think it applies to women working their way up in all manner of industries and professions. As for the design itself, the top is simple and elegant, befitting of a writer or any professional woman who wants to be remembered more for what she accomplishes than for what she wears. It might seem counterintuitive, but at MM.LaFleur, we think our clothes should be the least interesting thing about the women who wear them.

In our opinion, the “Rowling Top” is a must for any professional woman’s wardrobe & is something we could totally see Jo in! Be sure to check out all the amazing designs from MM.LaFleur!

Filed Under: Charity, J.K. Rowling, Lumos // Sep 16 2016

J.K. Rowling is the founder of the international children’s organization called Lumos. This organization will give an exclusive Facebook Live global broadcast this weekend about the world’s disadvantaged children in orphanages.

It has also been announced that a limited edition t-shirt is on sale starting today. The t-shirt displays a quote from J.K. Rowling in her Very Good Lives speech. This speech was given at a Harvard commencement ceremony in 2008. The “Be the Light” t-shirts feature a design using inspirational words from the author: “We do not need magic to transform our world; we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.” You can buy your shirt by visiting this link www.represent.com/lumos.

On Saturday September 17th at 8:15pm BST / 3:15pm ET / 12:15 PT, J.K. Rowling will speak about the works of Lumos. The broadcast will be streamed by the Lumos Facebook page.

People are able to send in questions for J.K. Rowling about Lumos’ work and the estimated eight million children living in institutional care, separated from families and exposed to abuse, harm and neglect. You can send in your questions on the website We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign. Some of these questions will be read out on that night. The Facebook Live event marks the start of the We Are Lumos Worldwide global campaign to raise awareness and urge people to get involved with the non-profit organisation’s work to bring the hidden children to light and get them home to families.

100% of all the public donations will go directly to programs that help many children to leave orphanages and return to families. This includes funds raised from the events in the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign. The campaign will increase the understanding of the problem that eight million children are hidden away in orphanages and large-scale residential care, the majority of whom are not orphans. Harry Potter cast members and Lumos ambassadors Warwick Davis, Evanna Lynch and Bonnie Wright have visited programs in Moldova and Haiti to find out more about this important work.



Filed Under: Cormoran Strike TV Series, J.K. Rowling // Sep 10 2016

Tom Burke, who is an actor in War and Peace, has been cast as Cormoran Strike in JK Rowling’s crime novels. This will be adapted by BBC. Burke played Dolokhov in the Tolstoy period drama and is set to play as the damaged war veteran, Strike. This is a three-part event based on Rowling’s crime novels.


Rowling praised the 35-year-old actor as “massively talented.” The character is described in the first book as “sixteen stone of dishevelled male,”  swearing, bruised and unkempt after living out of a bag in his office. Rowling wrote that the character suggests that of a grizzly bear due to his height, hairiness, and extended belly. Rowling is also “thrilled about the casting of Tom Burke” and says he is the perfect actor to bring the character to life.

The dramas will start filming this autumn, and should be ready for broadcast by the end of next year. The casting announcement has been made by BBC One and J.K. Rowling’s production company Brontë Film & TV.

In a tweet, Jo confirmed that Strike fans will have to wait for the highly anticipated 4th installment of the series at least until next year.


But fear not…


Also on the way, the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” script out November 19th!

    Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban.
