Madewell To Open SF Store in July

At least three years. That's how long I've been waiting for Madewell to open in SF. When I met J.Crew's younger, mismatched sister, I was instantly drawn to the forward denim, off-beat tops, funky prints, playful jewelry and experimental accessories. The time has come...

I am overjoyed to aver, come July 12, Madewell will open doors in the Westfield Center, conveniently near its style sibling. What started as a college town-targeted brand, is growing up, or rather, blowing up. If you've ever thought J.Crew too prep for you, Madewell is the solution; it's the definition of disheveled chic, at a slightly lower price point. A poppin' launch party is in the works, in the meantime, here's a garden variety of what's in store.
