Y’all know Madewell & Oldnavy are two of my favorite stores. (And I would be honored to work with both. (blog wise) ) But I have found some loop holes to buy from them…. What do you mean, you ask? With their clothing of course! Now don’t get me wrong I love Madewell for their shoes, bags & jewelry… Also their accessories! They’re top quality. Last be the designs, workmanship, quality, look, feel, etc.
But I’m not always happy to fork over a lotta dough for their clothing. I’m sorry, but I’m just not, sometimes I am if it really strikes my fancy. But like I said there are loop holes into how to look like a Madewell girl…
Now, Old navy has been a favorite of mine for many many MANY years. I have always liked shopping there. Their quality is just that good. I’d pick them over forever 21 any day… That’s not saying much, I get it! Now they’re not always top dog for “trendy” pieces, they like to stick to the basics more so, but then again they have a good turnover and sales that happen quite often. And I really like all styles they come up with. I never shop for shoes or bags there. I like real leather, thank you, not the synthetic stuff. Jewelry sometimes. Accessories, very rarely. Rest assured I still love Madewell unconditionally. And I forever want to look like a Madewell girl!
Also, side note: I just read the history of how Madewell started and I love it even more now! You want to take a gander? Here you go! Its a good read!
Anyway, so I have a few comparisons for y’all, now they may not be exactly the same, but similar it is. And I don’t mind a bit!
Field jackets. You may need, want or already have it in your wardrobe. But the two jackets are similar, just not in price… Lefty here is unavailable, Righty is $44.94. I say what a deal! And it’s 100% cotton just like the one from Madewell!
LWDs(little white dresses). It’s a standard for the summer. The one on the left is $79.99 on clearance, the right one is $32.97 also on clearance!
Patched boyfriend jeans. Who doesn’t love a good pair of patched lived in jeans? The ones on the left are $200.00, the ones on the right, are you ready for this? $44.94!!! Money in your pocket. $150 to go towards leather goods from Madewell.. how ’bout that!
Plaid shirts. Definitely a staple for Autumn/winter. The one on the left is $79.50 vs the right being at only $22.00! Yippee!
Stripes. Who doesn’t looooove a good stripe? Don’t believe the myth of horizontal stripes will make you appear larger than you are, lies all lies! Left side $79.50 compared to the right $14.94. Yeaaah buddy!
White boyfriend shirts. Yes please! Need I tell you more about why I love these? They are easy to style, hides unwanted areas & so very comfortable.
Lefts price point is $75.00 Rights is $22.00-$24.00!
Olive joggers. Uh huh! I so like these. They go with pretty much everything! And they’re so comfortable looking too. The lefts price tag is $218.00 and the rights price tag is $34.94. I wonder which pair you should get…
Lace inlay blouse. It’s gorgeous paired with jeans or a pencil skirt. Which ever way you like, it looks great. So the left here is again not available but the one on the right is $18.97!
Rounded hemline skirt. This one I actually would probably spend the cash on the skirt from Madewell, only because the skirt on the right it made with a whole lot of poly… L is $88, the R is $10. You choose.
So they’re we have it, our first store vs store post. Post of many! Tell me what you think? Which stores should I do next?
I’m so doing Madewell vs Oldnavy again, don’t worry! They’re just to similar not to!
