Madewell Forum Shops Carlsbad

Last night my friend Melissa and I attended the Madewell grand opening at the Forum Shops in Carlsbad. I’ve only shopped Madewell online so I was super excited to check out the goods in person. For anyone who isn’t familiar with Madewell, they are Jcrew’s sister store to give you an idea of their style/price point. Oh, and they just so happen to have an AMAZING denim bar. I mean, they’ve specialized in denim since 1937 so I think it’s safe to say they know their stuff when it comes to jeans! BTW, I’m totally crushing on these white cropped jeans with ankle zips! We were also treated to appetizers & complimentary champagne while we shopped. Plus I FINALLY got to meet my girl Raluca of What Would Gwyneth Do. I’m not sure how we ever found each other in blog land but I’ve been a fan of her blog for years. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday night…

    Looks like so much fun! Did you try on the white jeans in store – curious about the fit since I’m still on the hunt for the perfect pair 🙂

    Oooh, looks like fun! I’m dying to visit the Madewell store in Troy, MI. I haven’t been out there yet but they host blogger events all the time!
    Great photos. 🙂

    I love Madwell! And it is the kind of store that is so much better in person than their online presence, in my opinion. Their personality really shines through in store, and of course their merchandise is fabulous!(I am obsessed with their skirts!)

    Thanks for the post! : )

    I am so excited to have a cute new and reasonably priced store near by. I can’t wait to check it out! Maybe I will actually have something I want to wear when events come up! Oh but I do have cropped white jeans with a zipper like the ones you linked to however they are not fitting me right now but still glad to know you like them.
