Just a short post today with the remaining photos from Madewell last weekend. First I wanted to post this lovely display of old clocks. The entire table was decorated with them. Other shelves had old cameras, thread spools, etc. I really like the Madewell store decorating scheme.
And now on to the clothes: I was intrigued by the description of the Bowbell Tee. It's cotton but requires dry-cleaning? On closer inspection, I noticed that the bow is sewn into place by a few handstitches, which will definitely rip during washing. I think a few well-placed machine stitches would solve the dry-clean problem and would make this tee machine washable. The jeans are the the Rail Straight Jeans in Madewell Wash size 28, my usual size in Madewell jeans and J. Crew toothpicks. I blogged about these jeans here before.
The Shimmerlake Cardigan size S and 'metallic rosewood' has coppery hues and looks quite pretty. It's on sale in the store for for $59.99.
And the Camden Satchel in 'dusty burgundy.' It's a good size bag and it could be a great travel bag for when I need to carry a few extras. The leather is sturdy without being too stiff, and it is similar to other bags I have seen at Madewell.
Since burgundy seems to be one of the colours this fall, I looked for similar burgundy bags and found a few nice items from:
Rebecca Minkoff - Mab Mini (this one comes in 18 styles!)
Martin Sitbon - Knitted Satchel
Alexander Wang - Emile Small Dome Bag (this one's gorgeous IMO)
Guess - Mina Clutch
Proenza Schouler - Wallet
I like burgundy a lot, but it doesn't quite 'go' with my skin. How about you? Do you have anything burgundy in your closet this fall ?
Thanks for reading, and have a great Wednesday, everyone! I will try and do a few JC Factory reviews next since it's been a while.
