Alexa Chung + Madewell

Having a Madewell just down the road from me is quite a blessing (and a curse as far as my wallet is concerned).  During move-in, Soccer Mom and I popped in to pick up my (new favorite) leopard belt.  The manager was super super super nice, and, naturally, Soccer Mom blurted out that I had a blog.
She informed me about a few Madewell events.  One of the events was an in-store visit by Alexa Chung!!!  I had seen a few previews on various fashion blogs and magazines, so I was super excited.
Last night, I popped into the store to meet and greet!
1) I love the entire line.  It’s pretty and feminine and soft.
2) Alexa was extremely friendly.  I felt bad because there was this huge line and she was kind of just stuck standing there.  Regardless, she was so nice to everyone that went to meet her.
3) There was a whole British theme going on which was so great.
Can I just say… she is beyond gorgeous.  Flawless really.  I don’t even really want to post the picture of pale short me standing next to her!!!
I’m wearing the Alexa Chung for Madewell Dolores Dress, which is apparently sold out everywhere… and selling on eBay.  I like it too much to ever think about reselling it!!!  I threw on a J. Crew Jackie cardigan, belted with the leopard, and slipped into comfortable J. Crew ballet flats

I loved the photobooth!

Pimm’s… Henley Flashback!

I had tons of fun!
Have you checked out any of the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection?  What do you think?

Looks like I wonderful evening, I love it when great companies run inspirational events! I wouldn't put yourself down though, you look just as stunning stood next to Alexa in that fabulous dress, learn the tips of posture (and a bit of pilates) and you too shall command the room x


I have a Madewell near me as well, and I'm not a huge fan. But I LOVE your dress so maybe I'll look around some more.

You looked amazing! Btw I am in love with the dress. I think I might have to pick it up. And on one glorious day when my life gives me a night off, I'll wear it out. (ah I luv to dream) Anyway it looked like a fun time. 🙂


Thats so cool you got to meet her! I'm so jealous! And I think she's a pretty good runner up next to you =)
