After much anticipation of having a Madewell in SF, last night’s launch party hosted by 7×7 Magazine was insane! I thought I’d get to the party early so I can take some pictures, but this place was packed even before 6pm. I was basically squeezing my way through the entire night. But in all, it was really fun! Great food, good booze and awesome beats by the Mr. DJ. And if you like people-watching like me, it’s always cool to see such a big crowd. :)
A lot of local bloggers and friends were there last night…wish I had taken more photos of everyone. But given the crowdedness, it was nearly impossible. So, I only got two photos with some of the lovely ladies at the party… (though I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of party pix from 7×7 very soon.)

There’s already been a lot of press with the SF Madewell opening so I’m sure you’ve read up on it one way or the other. However, I was particularly drawn by this piece from Refinery29 SF by Katie Hintz-Zambrano where she had an exclusive chat with J.Crew (Madewell’s sister) CEO Mickey Drexler. It’s pretty inspiring to read his thoughts, so if you haven’t caught up with the whole Madewell craze, definitely check out this piece.
And finally, I got to wear my yellow top last night I bought a few months back. I couldn’t believe how many compliments I got out of this top! Think I need to wear it more often, what do you think?
On another note, I need to make a trip back to Madewell very soon. Saw some great knit sweaters and a pair of brown leather shorts I am dying to try!
