wow, they decided to increase the prices a lot.

in magazines and in press releases the pajama top was supposed to be $150, now its $200. the pajama bottoms were supposed to be 125$, now they are 200$ also.

yeah, and you can see they are the pieces still languishing online. They would have probably sold out right away at the other prices.

It baffles me, why you anyone pay for something that you can find absolutely everywhere from a fraction of the price. Her inspiration must have been every single high street shop on Oxford street. It's like Oasis, Forever 21, H&M, Zara and Topshop all bungled into one.
Fair play to Alexa if her name alone, can shift this rubbish at this price.

Zara has tons of those leopard boots since the start of season, so they are clearly already a copy of something else.

I could maybe understand the pricing if the clothes were indeed, "Made Well", but they are not and, like I said in my last post, the construction is on par of Forever 21, Top Shop, etc. I mean those boots for $350 I can easily get at Urbanoutfitters or Top Shop for 200 bucks less.

I just wanted the leopard booties. I love the shape of them & the chunky heel.
Also one of the dresses is just a repeat from her last madewell collection.

i went to my local store (5 minute walk from my work). none of the items were out yet (they are planning on putting them out late tonight). she also said that the store was only carrying some of the items.

she said the nearest store that has the palm print dress is the Soho store in NYC.

they are putting most of the items online rather than in stores because the items didnt sell in-stores and sold out online last time.
