Wayward Turtle Madewell Style
The last time I played dress up on something, a former foster dog ended up in an outfit that accentuated her “husky” body so much a person on the street yelled out “Look at that fat dog!”
I tend to have better luck dressing myself.
Dressing a mannequin? That’s something I never attempted until recently.
The event was held in Leawood, Kansas, at one of the newest brick and mortar locations for Madewell, a popular online women’s fashion retailer. Besides shopping, the party included a hair braiding bar, sweet refreshments served in adorable mason jars and mannequin styling.
Trends and fashion are prominent themes for many of the bloggers who attended the party. Some of them really are professional stylists. They seemed super excited about the chance to build beautiful outfits for everyone to see.
Stephanie and I have no delusions about our futures in the world of wardrobe styling, but we decided to dress up a mannequin just for fun.
We didn’t name our mannequin that day, but let’s call her look “Cassandra.”
Because I tend to do more clothes swapping than clothes shopping, I wasn’t very familiar with Madewell’s offerings prior to the event. But I can get down with the brand’s mash-up of yacht wear and bohemia. I even tried on a pretty adorable sweater with meerkats on it.
In fact, I had so much fun that there may be another party happening this year at Madewell, co-hosted by this blog and benefitting a doggone good cause.
