I want to shine a spotlight on Madewell…the store’s clothes are the epitome of laid back cool!

Millard “Mickey” Drexler (who took Gap to its “rising star” status in the 90’s and who is now CEO of J. Crew) reinvented this old New England factory “workwear” label in 2007 into something that is young, hip, and laid back.

I visit this store to find classic styles that I can mix into my everyday wardrobe. I just bought these two pieces that I can wear together, day or night.  And, of course, bought them in my favorite color- black!

 Modern Linen Muscle Tee | $42.00
Skinny Skinny Ankle Coated Motorcycle Jeans | $135.00
I love this muscle tee!  I will definitely be going back and buying it in heather gray and white.  The linen gives the tee a cool drape, and I love its sexy, semi-sheer finish!  A perfect layering piece all year-round. 
I have been looking for a black-coated skinny jean to wear this fall.  This motorcycle jean is slim, yet stretchy and finished with cool, moto-inspired zip details.  It fits much better than the J Brand pair I bought last year, and it’s half the price!
Other items I have put on my wishlist are:

Viewpoint Sweater | $125.00
A boxy-structured wool sweater that also comes in heather gray.
Boatneck Cableknit Sweater | $110.00
This is a modern take on the old-school fisherman’s sweater.
Madewell is known for their signature woven shirts.  If you need a well-fitted print or striped button-down; a denim, chambray in any variety of wash; or a classic, feminine silk blouse- this is the store for you.
Three of my favorites:
Flannel Tomboy Workshirt | $74.00
Silk Contrast Boyshirt | $118.00
Texture Weave Popover | $78.00
I love the minimalist silhouette- so slimming- I almost bought it in black!
Veda X Black Leather Moto Jacket | $555.00
Internet Only
H by Hudson (British Label) Paddi Oxfords | $235.00
Internet Only
Skinny Tuxedo Trousers | $98.50
This trouser sits at the hip, which makes it so slimming.

Ever since I saw Kate Moss rocking a jumpsuit, I have made it my mission to find one of my own.  This one has a tomboy vibe…with heels, you get that sexy boyish look.

NSF (LosAngeles Label) Mechanic Jumpsuit | $498.00
Internet Only
I am loving Madewell’s accessories, too.  Mix and match the stacked rings and bangles.
Glider Bangle (Dark Rose Gold and/or Shiny Brass) | $24.00
Metal Mix Stacking Rings | $28.00
I want and need this trending shape in eyewear.  I am hoping that this pair will make me look much more intellectual (I need all the help I can get)…and possibly, even, just a bit seductive?  Hmmmm?
Bookclub Glasses | $49.50

So if you are looking for “modern cool”, I recommend that you pop into Madewell or browse through their merchandise on the website

I would love to hear what store you are “shopping” this month!
