The day has finally arrived -- Kansas City is getting it's very own Madewell. When I lived in Los Angeles, I was always at their Glendale store (the sweet staff knew me by name :). I couldn't be more pleased to once again have one in my neighborhood. It's perfect timing, too, as Madewell has the best summer-to-fall transitional pieces. I'm particularly fond of this season's silk tie-front dress, which can be paired with tights + a beat-up jean jacket when the weather cools down. As for the present, I'd wear it with britsh tan booties, a leather crossbody tote and this chic tortoise bracelet. I'd also add in a deep berry lip and Chanel lacquer in Particulière (a new favorite).
This Tuesday, August 18th, Madewell is hosting a launch party in celebration of the store's opening. If you're local, please join! I'll be there along with some of Kansas City's best and brightest (and stylish, to boot). It's from 7-9 p.m. and guaranteed to be a blast. Hope to see you there!
