Whether you're running an Apple store errand or catching a flick at the movie theatre, visiting The Grove can be quite daunting. Between the hoards of tourists and faux Euro-looking sidewalks, our blood pressure starts to rise as soon as we enter the massive parking garage.
Call us hypocritical all you want, but at the same time, we just can't seem to quit the convenient shopping destination! And, with Madewell finally moving in, it looks like we'll be spending more time (and serious money) at the outdoor mall. The shop joins J.Crew (and J.Crew Men's, which also opened recently) just in time for the holiday rush. We're thinking the timing was non coincidental, but we're not complaining. More quirky sweaters, dreamy denim, and sparkly flats for us! Being the eager beavers we are, we hit the store before shoppers could descend, and snapped some pics along the way. Go ahead, take a peek and browse before the crowds form.
