Getting 'Lucky' with Lucky

Last week, I attended the Madewell Denim Roadtrip with Lucky Magazine and had the absolute pleasure and honor of meeting Editor-at-Large Elise Loehnen. First off, let me just say that Lucky is my favorite magazine of all time and I've been a huge fan since the first $1 issue back in 2000. It was the magazine that launched thousands of fashion and beauty dreams and also inspired me to pursue a career in fashion writing. But that's another story for another day. Let's get back to my time at Madewell.

I must admit that until this event I had never actually stepped foot into a store, but wowie, I'm sure glad I did. It was like stepping into my dream closet. Practically everything in the store I wanted
(and felt I needed). The plaid shirts, cozy grampa sweaters, skinny cords, lace-up boots, printed scarves, black lacey dresses, printed skirts, galore!  I wish I had remembered to bring my camera with me otherwise, I would have taken more photos. And I was so entranced by the clothing that I didn't really think to snap shots with my phone cam.You'll have to check out their website to see all their fall goodies. Elise and her sidekick Rachel were telling me that every Madewell store they had been to was completely different because of the geographical region.And I must say, I can't wait to see them! Madewell is definitely my style and I will surely be back soon.

The only downside to Madewell was the price point. It was a little steep for my budget. However, while I was browsing the sales racks I happened across this little beauty.What can I say? I'm a sucker for sparkly things and this will be quite festive for the holidays and will add a little *sparkle* to any day outfit. So, I had to have it.
