The email announces that J.Crew's sister store, Madewell, has a new online shop (click here). (Although, we JCAs have known this tidbit for awhile now.) ;) Creative Director Jenna Lyons also shares the following fashion advice:
On my wish list: skinny denim, anything gladiator and easy tees. [I'll be wearing them all season long]. I'm in love with these Italian leather sunset sandals— the vintage-inspired wooden platform is equally chic and comfortable.The email's sign-off of "Have a Madewell moment with me..." made me giggle! It reminded me of all those cheesy 80's commercials for coffee creamer, chocolate, shampoo, and body wash. I guess its going for the feeling like we are old friends talking over a cup of coffee in a cafe. Um, okay. ;)
As for the shoes, they feature the Sunset Sandal (Item 23604; $148.00), which Madewell describes as "Seriously, how cool are these sandals? Vintagey wood soles, wide leather straps—we can't get enough of them. Leather upper. Padded man-made footbed for extra comfort." It might just be me, but I am so not feeling these heels.
What are your thoughts on the Sunset Sandal? Do you think they are worth the $148.00 price tag? Do you own or have tried them on? If so, please share! What are your thoughts on the "Have a Madewell moment with me..." sign-off? :)
