Madewell: What's in my Shopping Bag...

As I've mentioned many times before, I absolutely love Madewell. The casual-vibe of their clothing works well with my lifestyle, the styling on the website stays more to the understated side, the prices are often more affordable than a lot of the retailers offering similar styles, and I love that they always offer Free Shipping on ALL orders, too. The quality has been good on all the items I have ordered, and the pieces are all holding up very well so far. (I've shared pics of me wearing a couple of the jackets on my Instagram.)

Right now Madewell is offering 20% off purchases of $100+ or 30% off purchases of $200+ with code WINWIN at checkout until 9.22.14.

Currently there are a LOT of items in my shopping bag at Madewell. I know that I do not need every single item, but it is still fun to look, and adding the items to my shopping bag makes it easier to watch for them to go on sale, in case my budget allows me to purchase at that time. I thought I'd share some more of what I'm loving from Madewell with you, so here is a peek at what's in my shopping bag right now...

1. Collarless Tunic in Rainy Day - love the cut, length, and color. Perfect to wear over jeans or leggings and topped with a jacket.

2. The Perfect Tunic in Cotton Camo - nice to see a new silhouette in the camo print, and I love tunics.

3. Collarless Tunic in Pure White - understated and chic. Perfect to wear under a blazer this fall.

4. Cadet Blazer - so chic and lovely. The styling on the website is perfection.

5. Plaid Cinch Vest - so incredibly chic. I love the length, the color, the plaid...everything about it.

6. Uphill Pullover - absolutely love the color combination and the leather patches.

7. Penfield® Kemsey Plaid Shirt-Jacket - my hubby has a similar one that I have always loved, so I really would like to have one for myself.

8. Tomboy Workshirt - love this in both colors, but especially in the 'deep marsh' colorway. I think this one would see a lot of wear this fall and winter.

9. Flannel Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Buffalo Check - love the color, the size of the checks, the fit...yes please!!!

If you haven't ever ordered from Madewell, you should definitely consider giving them a try...I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how much you like them, too.

Here are a few more of my personal picks ...

  1. I'm a big fan of Madewell too. I love their clothes and must give a shout out to the sales team in San Francisco. The service there is outstanding and they "get" it when it comes to helping women shop.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Julie! How fortunate to have a Madewell with such a great sales team near you! I'm sure it makes shopping there even more delightful. :) The closest store to me is in Portland, so needless to say I won't be able to visit but maybe once or twice a year if I'm lucky. I may try calling your SF store if I'm ever trying to find a specific item though. It sounds as if they would be extra helpful on charge-send orders, too.

  2. I love Madewell too! There are two stores in my area and the SA's are super friendly there too. My sister just bought the Transport tote(the new one with the zipper).
    Last year i got a blanket scarf,which was my favorite scarf last winter!

    1. Hi Ina! You are another lucky lady to have stores near you! Have you tried any of the scarves from this year? I'm considering a couple of them, and would love to hear your thoughts on any you may have tried already. :)

    2. Will check the scarves next time i am there.
      Up until now i havent found i need.

  3. I ordered the Cadet Blazer yesterday during the promotion. Hope it fits.

    1. Hi Awakening my Wardrobe! Oh please do let me know what you think of the Cadet Blazer once it arrives. I really love that one! If you would like to share an online review, I would be more than happy to post it here on my blog, as well. Just email me. :)
