I’m a Former Madewell Employee, and These Are 5 Things I’m Buying from Its Newest Arrivals

As someone who’s worked in retail, I can tell you it’s rare you’ll find a former employee shopping at their ex-store. Sure, there’s the urge to refold the shirt stack and finger-space hangers behind customers, but the main reason? No longer having that coveted employee discount. (If you knew how cheap you could get a T-shirt with it, you wouldn’t want to pay the new-season price, either.) However, there are some things that are just worth it, even without a discount — which is why I’m here to guide you through Madewell’s latest arrivals.
