Madewell is now open in Chicago!

I’m a bad student, I skipped my morning classes last Wednesday.

Instead, Matthew and I stood in line for the opening of the new Madewell store on Rush St. They were giving out free gift-cards! Of course we had to go! And OF COURSE Matthew had to be dragged along to give me his! (They only sell female clothing :P)

We went with Amanda who is OBSESSED with Madewell. Her friend was first in line. She was there at 7:30am—the store opens at 10am.

It was SUPER COLD, OMG. What happened to Spring?!

Amanda, our saviour, bought hot chocolate for us. Near opening, the staff was really nice and started passing out coffee too!

I really needed the hot cup of coffee to warm up my hands—they were frozen from Instagramming!

If you tagged with #madewellchicago, they had a printer that would print out your Instagram photos. We went a little crazy.


Matt and I each ended up with a $10 gift-card. But Amanda got $100 and her friend got $50!

I had already decided what I wanted prior to our trip, these pretty little ring things! 😀


Matthew and I had breakfast after and then went to class. What an eventful and exciting morning!

I almost regret not waking up earlier everyday… almost.


PS- Sorry, a lot of photos are from my Instagram! (Follow me @fannehsm!)
