WANT: Madewell

1.21.2011

Madewell is one of my favorite stores right now. It's a sister company of J. Crew... so you know what that means: 15% discount in the store for college students!!! I discovered the store online but was VERY happy to see there is a location at King of Prussia mall. I just combed the entire website and picked out all my favorite items (be sure to check down at the bottom for two coupon codes!):

Striped Tribute Tee - The whole look is great, it exudes the perfect amount of casual, effortless style.
Sheer Pintuck Tee - I've been in the market for some sheer shirts and this one is right up my alley.
Shadow-Stripe Shirt - Ditto with the above comment.
Sea Stripes Sweater - I like the way the stripes go both horizontally and vertically.
Set Sail Tank - I love stripes, can't you tell.
Basket Weave Cardigan - I got this in navy for Christmas, and then my mom bought one for herself too.
Postcard Cardigan - I like how the sweater has an interesting, unique way of one side overlapping the other up top when buttoned.
Penfield Rockwool Vest - I imagine this vest warming up my walk to class quite nicely.
Vintage Rocker Jeans - These jeans are really cute and have the perfect vintage feel. I love the skinny belt with them!
Cute socks! - I can't resist polka dot socks.
The Archive Leather Boot - A perfect black boot. They had these in brown... but unfortunately, I think they are sold out.
The Biker Boot - I love love love these in both brown and black!
The Dustbowl Boot - I like these shoes, I still have to figure out how I'd wear em.
Love Letter Clutch - A simple, leather clutch.

WANT: For the Boyfriend

1.20.2011

Need Supply Co. has a ton of really unique clothes that fit my style (and what I want Ryan to wear!). Here are some men's clothing items I wish the man in my life owned:

Wilson Coat - Love the cut, love the color.
Pull New Wave - At this price, I'd never EVER buy this, but I still like it! Especially with those dark tan/camel pants.
Weekender Pant - A nice, grey pant that can be for both casual and nicer occasions. Also, like those shoes!
Romero Twill - I love these pants - the color, the fit, everything!
Levi's - I love the rolled up look with suede shoes.

While I think Ryan would like a lot of this stuff, I know it is safe to say he would never be caught dead with rolled up skinny Levi's and suede shoes. TRAVESTY! Excuse me while I go sob in the corner.

(P.S. Extra 20% off sale items until midnight on the 23rd if you type in "EXTRA20" at check out!)

WANT: Nasty Gal

Nasty Gal is one of my favorite online stores. It's almost painful to browse around though because there is TOO much I want. Here are some recent finds (from their newly added section) I am lusting after.


Slice Raglan
Aspen Knit Cardi
Soho Draped Wool Jacket
Sienna Oversized Knit

WANT: Penfield Kasson Jacket

1.18.2011

I love Penfield's Kasson jacket, but I have not been able to find this color and style available anywhere!
