meet madewell: j.crew’s hipper, more relaxed little sister store. that sound you just heard? oh, that was my credit cards, screaming for mercy…
on my must-have list: switchyard blazer in slate, $110; rail straight cutoffs, $65 (and, yeah, probably that striped sweatshirt too, for $58); and a great big pile of these artisan tees, $29.50. and maybe this cardigan. and ooh, this sheer pink vest would be perfect for warm-weather layering.
and a few other pieces that are off my list for purely technical reasons: these bensimon sneakers are divine in person, but run a full size small (and therefore are unattainable for me); and this absolutely perfect mini crossbody bag, which is making me wish i hadn’t already gotten one this year.
hmm. in light of my extremely overloaded shopping bag, now might be a good time to mention how much i love new advertisers (hint, hint). so, if you know a small biz or a designer who could use some adoration from all of you devoted SMC readers, send them on over!
