Shopping at J Crew’s Little Sister: Madewell

April 5, 2011 at 2:35 pm , by

If you’ve ever read my blog posts before, you’ve certainly noticed that I have a major crush on J Crew. In fact, many days, I look down at my outfit and it’s a little “J Crew-heavy.” Example: Today’s ensemble is jeans, a t-shirt, a cardigan, a necklace and a blazer — all from J Crew. (Sorry I can’t help it!) But I’m not here to write another ode to the Crew. This blog is about Madewell, J Crew’s little sister. And she’s all grown up!

Today we went to the Madewell fall ’11 preview and it looked fantastic. Sure, the jeans and tees that we’ve always loved are still there but now there are more polished pieces, like the beautiful long skirt pictured here.

But as you know, I do love a good sale so here are a few of my picks from madewell.com that will make you feel like you’re getting a steal.

This fringy scarf is so fun, it’s almost like a necklace. And at $19.99, down from $58, how can you say no?

Legging jeans – down to 29.99 from $98.50 should be enough to make you say “Yes, please!” but I’ll also mention Madewell’s “Genius Jeans Guarantee: Free shipping and free returns on all jeans, all the time.” There’s nothing wrong with that.

A silk georgette floral print dress for $134? Amazing! Even better since it kinda looks like the D&G one that Emma Stone is wearing on the cover of Glamour. Except that one sells for  for $1,395!

So, for now, we’ll have to wait til fall for that gorgeous long skirt. But hopefully you can find something else fun on madewell.com in the meantime. Happy shopping!
