Earlier this week, Jennifer and I were honored to host a private shopping party at the new Madewell store at Scottsdale Fashion Square. It was loads of fun; we got to shop the store for our picks, and then share them with our friends who came to check out the new store. After being fans of the online store for years, we couldn’t be happier to have an actual store nearby. And I think it’s so cool to see a chain retailer embrace the local fashion/creative community the way Madewell has by hosting and participating in Phoenix-area events.
Thanks to the lovely ladies at Madewell Scottsdale Fashion Square for inviting us to host the party! Below are some pictures from the event, followed by this week’s Five for Friday, inspired by the great sale going on at Madewell, online and in stores.
Spending time in the comfortable, stylish Madewell store surrounded by so many adorable looks gave great ideas for this week’s Five for Friday. They just added some new styles to their sale, so I’ve picked five items you can scoop up online for a real bargain price (click the items in the pictures for details). I especially recommend the Spotshadow Panorama Shorts — Jennifer picked up a dress in that print at the shopping event and I brought the jacket with me to Africa. It’s just a fantastic print. And to sweeten the deal — although I don’t know how long it will be going on — sale items in the store were marked down an additional 50% off. So if you’re near the store, be sure to stop by.
