Madewell Spring 2015 Lookbook

After the storm we just went through here in the Bay, I’m ready for spring with Madewell! I guess I should clarify that the storm that they shut schools down for here in the Bay was equivalent to just a normal rainy day in Seattle. It was slightly ridiculous. Whatever the case, spring wear is always so much more fun than winter in my eyes anyways.

Black Friday Shopping Woes

Apparently, when it comes to jewelry I’m still a complete n00b. I stopped into Madewell this past Black Friday and when I spotted these rings on sale for just $10, I knew they were a steal. After putting that bottom one on (it’s a size 5 and I’m a size 4) I found myself completely stuck with my finger starting to turn white. My skin looked completely squeezed from the ring and I was panicking. I didn’t think that would happen since it was one size larger, but I later found out from my cousin that thicker rings size differently?

So I ask the salesperson for help on getting the ring off and she says, “No, I don’t want to hurt you.”

Okay, but like what are we going to do about this ring?

She suggests that the front has lotion, but they really only have Purell. That may work. When she sees that I’m trying to be careful with the Purell, she goes “I don’t care how much you get on the ring.” She probably just wanted it off or maybe she just hated me. If you think about it, I’m kind of like this bratty kid that had to try on everything at home and she was the babysitter that wanted me to not touch anything. And honestly, I didn’t think it was going to come off! Until it did, and I was so mortified about the situation that at that point I couldn’t even buy it.

Thank god for Cyber Monday, right?

Madewell Fall 2014 Catalog

I just thought about how many times I’ve posted about a Madewell catalog being out for the season and I think it has been many. Many times. I actually do love their catalogs though – more than any other retailer. There’s always a paper version mailed out and in stores and a digital version for what we use to transfer our favorite snapshots over into a post! Actually, I’m very impressed with Madewell’s digital catalog this season because instead of flipping through “fake pages” all I have to do is scroll downwards. So it doesn’t reflect a “true” catalog, but who needs that anyways? At least they’re not trying to hide that I’m viewing this catalog on a website. With that, here are our favorite fall looks. Gimme gimme.

The Sill x Madewell

I’m such a huge sucker when it comes to all things decorating my desk. I constantly feel like I have so many ideas for it, but given my role at my workplace, I sometimes feel like I am swimming in papers. Last year, I was given a succulent from my co-worker which didn’t survive. And ever since it died, I’ve been itching to have another one. The Sill is a start-up out of New York that I blogged about back in November and now they’ve gone ahead with a collaboration that is making me love them even more! Working with one of my favorite retailers, Madewell – The Sill has created an exclusive line of planters that I absolutely need to have. If only they could ship it to me…

How great would this look on my desk though? Or even… your desk!

Madewell’s 2014 Fall Lookbook

I have a feeling that I have been cursed with a seasonal boredom disorder. I act like I am very excited for the upcoming season – in this case summer – but the second I see any sign of fall ie. fall lookbooks, I’m ready to move on. Summer isn’t even here yet! Let’s be real though it’s summer every day here in California. However, I am already longing for cozy sweaters, flannels, and fall skirts. Madewell’s 2014 Fall Lookbook has me very excited for snuggling up in my pieces and cleaning up my closet.

Madewell Leather ID Bracelet – $24.50

It took a vacay to San Diego for me to face a long-deserved shopping spree. I was a little bit nervous about how much I was spending down there in comparison to food, but it seemed to work out and I am still pretty content with all of my purchases and ultimately ended up being well-fed. But…more on that later! Anyone that knows me knows that I never wear jewelry other than the gold hoops in my ears that I never take out. Since I was in elementary, I have always had hairties on my wrist and that’s as far as accessorizing goes for me. Being with Ashley though, I was a little more inclined to try something new. I am in love with my new bracelet and since it’s black and gold, it’s easy to match with most of my outfits.

You can’t go wrong with a simple denim shirt. My mom handed me down hers a couple of years ago and while it was one of my favorite pieces back then, I am now starting to outgrow it a little bit. Classics are classics, but when they are no longer able to be worn, you shouldn’t feel guilty about replacing it. If there’s one place that succeeds in doing a solid denim shirt, it is Madewell. Every time I walk into the store, I find myself eyeing their display of them and each time, I’m hesitant to bust out my wallet for it. All I needed to hear was “all of our shirts are 20% off today!” and that was enough to make me crack. I purchased the Western Jean Shirt in Pond Wash and have already worn it twice this week. It’s so versatile and can double up as a plain old shirt or a light jacket over a dress or a skirt. It has quickly found a home within my closet.

Erin Wasson x Madewell Spring 2014

I thought it was an interesting choice for Madewell to select THE Erin Wasson as their model for their spring catalog as she typically tends to have a very edgy and risqué look, but after looking through the catalog on Pinterest, it seems to work. It seems like the model can be tamed down after all.

Madewell Spring 2014 Lookbook

The best part about living in California is that you don’t have to wait as long for spring to come around! I can never really complain about winter while living here anyways and if it is cold at all, I know that that will soon be passing. Madewell has been one of my favorite stores for the last few years and every year I am never disappointed by their collections especially for spring. This week they unveiled their latest lookbook for Spring 2014 and naturally, we’ve already picked a few favorites.

Christmas Wish List 2013

Comfort Food Toast Squishable – $35

I always end up making this list too close to Christmas so that by the time I list out things I could possibly want, it’s too late for my family to purchase them for me. Realistically, I don’t need any of these things for Christmas. They are merely just things that I can get for myself in the near future. We’ve actually been doing this Christmas List post for quite some time now so it wouldn’t have felt right if we didn’t have it again. I hope all of you have such a wonderful holiday. I’m off work for the week, but I’m really excited to be spending some time with Yow Yow! and prepping for our roundup posts that we do every year.

Madewell Leafstitch Crewneck

I’m not a blogger that writes about her shopping hauls, but I actually kind of had one, myself, last weekend. Having been living in the Bay for about a month, I came to the realization that the way that I was dressing in Seattle was going to be significantly different than how I would dress here. A shopping trip was just necessary.

Madewell Spring 2014 Revamped

 

Is it too early to be talking about Spring 2014 collections? Most would say yes, but I’m already wrapped up in my Pendleton blanket for warmth so I guess you could say I’m over fall. This week, Madewell unveiled their new Spring 2014 collection led by J. Crew vet of 12 years – Somsack Sikhounmuong and it is everything you thought it would be – classic pieces, stripes, and a slight nautical theme. Sikhounmuong mentioned that he plans to “elevate” Madewell and “focus on making things a little more classic-based.”
