I have one word for Tuesday night's festivities: magical.
I got word of Madewell opening on the plaza a few months ago, with an email asking if I would be interested in co-hosting, (It never really sunk in that this was real life. Trust me, I pinched myself multiple times. The event has come and gone, and it still feels like a dream). Of course I was onboard with this proposal within seconds of reading the email, and I cannot say enough positive things about this event, company, and the process leading up to it.
When I first walked in, I was greeted so warmly by Caitlyn and her staff. Shortly after I was told to pull my favorite garments and hang them on my own personal rack, with Little Fixation on it. (SAY WHHHHAT?!)
Note: Again, had to pinch myself to make sure all was real.
Julep KC was there sharing a couple cocktails, (both were wonderful. I had to taste them for the blog, right?), and beautiful food was prepared and passed out for the duration of the event.
For two straight hours, the store was packed with high energy! New friends and old, free totes and a DJ, it's impossible to put a finger on my favorite part. I even purchased a pouch for an upcoming trip that had a taco drawn on it, with "Taco Taco Taco!" next to it. So you know the night had to be a good one.
The store is not only beautiful, (They have a neon sign above their denim bar... Can I lease a cubby under a table? I won't take up much room, promise), but the staff; I cannot say enough how incredibly friendly and warm they were. There's nothing like being on cloud 9 with an opportunity like this, and everyone just being so great along the way. It's something that will stay with me for a very, very long time.
If you were at the event and snapped any photos, you can share them using the hashtag #MadewellMo. (So fun being able to see other people's perspectives at an event like this!)
Lastly; THANK YOU GUYS! You have all played such an intricate part in getting Little Fixations to where it is right now. This event was so special to me, (a few of you even came up to me and said "We love your Instagram & blog!" I may have freaked out a little. That will stay with me forever!) Every single one of you is helping me live out my dreams daily, and for that, there will never be enough thank you's.
(Day after the event, I was right back in these overalls. I could live in this if you'd let me....I think it's best for all if I don't).
