Last September, tours shopped for Milly, J. Crew and other great brands.  Who knows what awaits us, but get ready for fall styles. Tours run every Wednesday & Friday morning. Groups max at 12 persons.

Sigerson Morrison and Madewell hook up.. hmm

August 22nd, 2011

Clog booties, $350.What do we think of this? Well.. interesting duo. But at a cost of $350 for these booties, we dont think think the general Madewell shoppers will go for this. We love to take our teens to Madewell on our Soho, Private or Sweet 16 shopping tours, as they get the J. Crew sensibility without wearing the same items their friends have. We dont see this price point setting off to many squeels – except ugh.
