For starters, I'm a little behind the curve on this one. Madewell's Georgetown location opened mid-November of last year but it wasn't until last weekend that I had a chance to pay a visit.
First of all, for those of you who adore Anthropologie but like me, think the prices are absurd (example: 80$ for a t-shirt?? No thanks.), you'll breathe a sigh of relief. You look at the clothing, peer at the price tag and the two seem to make sense. Finally!
There are cool chambray shirts, amazing suede boots, great tops to mix and match with work and play outfits, and loads of cool accessories -- from belts to scarves. Oh, and the jeans! How could I forget? They come in an array of styles and washes and again, the price point is way better than what you'll find at Barney's or Anthro.
The store's decor is awesome. Very industrial with lots of exposed brick and lovely unfinished wood floors.
The staff couldn't be friendlier and it's easy to see why -- they love the clothes. In fact, they act more like "brand ambassadors" than sales assistants. I just love their enthusiasm.
So this is all to say, that this is my new favorite place to shop in D.C. and if you haven't visited already, you must!
