Y’all know how I feel about Madewell. It’s okay. It’s not like I go into one of their stores every week, or could hold a Madewell sample sale from my own closet, or rarely go a day without wearing something with a Madewell tag on it, or could pass for a Madewell model if I was taller/skinnier/more rumply-haired. Nope, not at all. So, while I won’t be clicking through their Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook, making note of all the adorable pieces that I neeeeeeeed, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Because I’ll begrudgingly admit it all looks really pretty cute and OH WHO AM I KIDDING? Click through the new Madewell lookbook, bitches — I want it all! Except the baseball caps, because hat hair.

You can never have too many striped shirts: they dress up, they dress down, and they are, above all, classic. I’m loving Madewell’s colorful take on a classic striped long-sleeve T, which I’m already joyfully matching in my head with colorful jeans already in my closet. How can you not be happy in a plum cotton T with magenta stripes?! [$49.50, Madewell]
Dammit, Madewell! Memorial Day weekend hasn’t even happened yet and you’re already pimping your fall 2012 line! And dammit again, Madewell, for making me want every single piece! Can’t a girl enjoy her summer wardrobe in peace? (Click through to see 20 of our favorite looks, many of which we’re sure to wear — or at least be inspired by — four months from now.)
Yesterday, Julie and I wore the same dress to work. We both own Madewell’s Stucco Stripe Dress — mine is the “tobacco” color, while she has it in blue and white — but, as you can see, we style it in completely different ways. How to get both looks, after the jump! Keep reading »
Those lucky Lucky mag broads got an exclusive look at Madewell’s Spring 2012 line, and let me tell you, I am officially salivating. Want. Want. Want. Everything. Starting with the green dress on the left. Check out the full lookbook at the link. [Lucky Mag]
At the end of the day, despite having a closet full of dresses, I am a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl. And once I find a specific brand and cut that I love, I make sure to buy them in every color; that way, on days when I feel like I have “nothing to wear,” I know there will always be a cute and clean T that’s ready and waiting. These days, that shirt is Madewell’s soft scoop T — the fabric is buttery soft with just a tiny bit of sexy sheerness, while the cut is drape-y and feminine. At $30 bucks — on sale! — it’s not exactly chump change, but trust me — you’ll live in it.
