For a really long time I lived in San Jose, and I would peruse the shops at Santana Row in my off time, always excited for the constant remodeling of the chic space, and hoping for more new stores that were more-- me. This Tuesday one of my favorite brands for classic-chic staples is coming to the South Bay. Get your closets ready, people- Madewell is heading south!  While I'm not a "classic" kind of girl by any means, Madewell staples never cease to leave my closet rotation in any season-- their perfectly worn-in chambrays, quality leather goods, and unexpected sweet silk pieces will forever hold a special place in my heart.

So for my South bay ladies- if you are anywhere near Santana Row tomorrow afternoon get yourself to Madewell's opening night party from 5-8pm. The soiree is being co-hosted by the San Jose Museum of Art (another one of my stomping grounds- a Saturday afternoon favorite!), and 10% off all proceeds go to the museum. Alrighty then, let's see a show of hands of who's going?!
