Alexa Chung + Madewell

Having a Madewell just down the road from me is quite a blessing (and a curse as far as my wallet is concerned).  During move-in, Soccer Mom and I popped in to pick up my (new favorite) leopard belt.  The manager was super super super nice, and, naturally, Soccer Mom blurted out that I had a blog.

She informed me about a few Madewell events.  One of the events was an in-store visit by Alexa Chung!!!  I had seen a few previews on various fashion blogs and magazines, so I was super excited.

Last night, I popped into the store to meet and greet!

1) I love the entire line.  It's pretty and feminine and soft.
2) Alexa was extremely friendly.  I felt bad because there was this huge line and she was kind of just stuck standing there.  Regardless, she was so nice to everyone that went to meet her.
3) There was a whole British theme going on which was so great.

Can I just say... she is beyond gorgeous.  Flawless really.  I don't even really want to post the picture of pale short me standing next to her!!!

I'm wearing the Alexa Chung for Madewell Dolores Dress, which is apparently sold out everywhere... and selling on eBay.  I like it too much to ever think about reselling it!!!  I threw on a J. Crew Jackie cardigan, belted with the leopard, and slipped into comfortable J. Crew ballet flats

Alexa is wearing the Alexa Chung for Madewell Bunny Dress.

I loved the photobooth!

Pimm's... Henley Flashback!

I had tons of fun!
