The Madewell Party
Food, drink, clothes, and a movie – the perfect night for any girl!
Madewell, a new clothing store in Century City, had a super party for the holidays. The tasty goodies started before you even got in the door. Donuts, anyone? These were mini-fried doughnuts with a choice of toppings. You were questioned as you entered. Powdered sugar? Chocolate? Maple honey? Oreo Cookie? or Vanilla? What a fun way to start a bash—with a great dessert at the very beginning!
Inside the store, a deejay played as people milled around looking at the clothes, drinking green drinks and wine, and nibbling on a tasty selection of hors d’oeuvres. Everything from little purple baked potatoes with caviar, ahi tuna on star crackers, basil & tomato tartlets with cheese, mini-turkey & cranberry jam biscuits, and salmon and crème fraiche on teeny potato pancakes. The appetizers kept flowing.
The clothes ran the gamut of conservative sweaters, jackets, and pants, to a lovely great-shade-of-blue dress, to some black & sexy see-through blouses—a terrific mix for various occasions.
Everyone who attended was invited to see a screening of “The Holiday.” Did they give out tickets? No. It wasbetter than tickets. About twenty minutes before we were to head to the movie, the Madewell ladies brought out bags of cool purple scarves. Then the whole party romped over to the theater, each person with a blaze of cool purple wrapped around his/her neck or flowing from his/her side. The movie—what can I say? Jude Law, Jude Law, Jude Law! He is sooooo cute. And he was “made” for romantic comedy. See the Review.
Meanwhile, check out the cool clothes at Madewell (JCrew’s sister brand) at the Westfield Shopping Mall in Century City.
