madewell x ifyouseekstyle.

outfit details: thrifted denim shirt and cardigan, madewell jeans, michael kors watch, and aldo boots.

on tuesday i had the incredible opportunity of hosting the one year anniversary shopping event at madewell in old orchard. scouring the merchandise for pieces to style my mannequins and pick rack came all too easy because i basically want everything that's in stores at the moment. mixed prints, moody neutrals, buttoned-all-the-way-up shirts, slouchy knits, leather, and lots and lots of denim called to me, naturally. a pair of their new skinny skinny high risers in the river wash (also took home the eclipse wash) immediately became a part of my outfit and resulted in some double denim action, which you know i have never been against. other must-haves: the houndstooth sweater coat and the stadium jacket. it doesn't get much better than the fact that we basically hung out for three hours with a steady flow of shopping, treats, meeting new people, good conversation, and great music. shout-out to chelsea for showing up - i love that girl! and, speaking of great music, not needing to play DJ was the icing on top of the cake, as madewell has an awesome playlist that includes m.ward, dr. dog, milo greene, cold showers, chairlift, la sera, and neon indian, which in turn allowed me to bust out some signature caylee dance moves and lip synching that tends to happen when i hear my favorite songs.

at one point in the evening, someone asked me if i liked madewell, and while the answer is an incredibly loud and obnoxious yes, i also explained that i would never work with a brand that i didn't wholly support. i am wearing the merchandise, taking pictures at the event, and writing about the brand - it has to match my aesthetic and my lifestyle; be something that resonates with me and something that i would actually wear, so i am authentic and passionate when i share it with you, my audience.

thank you x1000 to madewell, store director liz, the entire old orchard staff, my amazing friends, and the happy happy shoppers for such a fun and successful night!
