MOA Madewell Grand Opening

It’s finally happening! Madewell is opening their doors in the shopping mall of all shopping malls: Mall of America. In a few weeks, yours truly will be hosting the grand opening party on October 8th. I’ll be at the store from 6-9pm, ready mingle and do a little styling with their lovely selection of fall merchandise.

MOA Madewell Grand Opening

To prep for the event, I stopped into the Southdale location to check out the new fall arrivals, and to give few items a test drive. Printed knits, leather detailing, plaid scarves, and wool skirts were highlights, but it was the denim bar and shoe selection that stole the show, for me. I walked away with a great set of basics, all of which I’m wearing here!

Personally, I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up my involvement with Madewell’s 31 Days of Denim, because I usually walk away with a handful of new friends after in-store events! It’s been a blast sharing the ways I’ve styled Madewell denim, and if you’re local, stop by the event to say hello!

    Totally random and unrelated – but I love your sofa. I’m having mine reupholstered and cannot find the fabric that’s in my head – and there it is.

    Related – those shoes are amazing. Best color.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a amazing job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!
