5 Reasons Madewell Clothing Is Life Changing

5 Reasons You Need To Start Shopping At Madewell

Trust me, you're going to thank me later for this.


Firstly, I want to start by giving a special shoutout to my roomie for getting me hooked on Madewell. One night I was having an issue while jean shopping and she gave me the low down on all things jean and why I needed to convert to Madewell jeans right then and there. Since that night, I am now the proud owner of a pair of Madewell Curvy jeans and let me just say, I AM NEVER GOING BACK TO ANY OTHER JEAN BRANDS.

Like holy amazeballs, these jeans fit EVERY aspect of my weird curvy/pear-shaped body and damn do I get so many compliments every time I wear them. Not only is Madewell an amazing jean company, but they -- in my opinion -- are one of the best companies overall to date when it comes to their branding and their outcome on the earth. So here's is some important knowledge on why you need to start looking more into this company.

1. Denim. Denim. Denim. 


I don't know about you, but I have the worst luck with anything denim. Either it doesn't fit my thighs, is too large around my hips, or it just does not compliment my figure whatsoever. Well here ya go my dude, Madewell denim is tailored to fit literally everyone and anyone who is a human being. Their denim is not only incredibly flattering on everyone, but they a variety of styles and trends. My beautiful curvy jeans are high-rise -- and completely different from American Eagle's High Rise Jean -- and have yet to be ruined from washing. They are also the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. Madewell strives to keep their denim cute, fun, classic and comfy.

2. Their 'Do Well' slogan is amazing.


Have you ever heard of denim recycling?? Uh probably, really, not, and neither did I until I found out that Madewell is one of the few companies to actually do this. Denim recycling is where a company will let you bring in an old pair of jeans -- they can be ratty or brand new it doesn't matter -- and give you a certain amount off ($20) of a new pair. But what do they do with your old pair? They send those old jeans to Blue Jeans Go Green and gets recycled into housing insulation. How amazing is that??

Madewell also works with Girls Inc. to empower women, the Human Rights Campaign and the Surfrider Foundations which helps to clean up water in beach areas that need help.

3. Student discount.


Uh yea, so every student gets a 10 percent discount when you show your student ID. That is all on that one. It cannot be combined with some other promotions, but like hey if you have a student ID you might as well use it. Save that money!

4. Madewell insider perks.


Much like other stores, Madewell has their own rewards program that knocks out any other program. Not only is it free to join, but if you join then you can get free leather and denim personalization, free shipping, invitations to special events, and a few other pretty nice perks. The biggest one is that you get a crazy good birthday gift. You know how most stores give you a few days to redeem your birthday gift? Well, Madewell gives you the whole month and it is worth the surprise.

5. Quality over quantity.


Now for the real kicker. Madewell is owned by J. Crew, which means that yes they are on the pricier end of the spectrum when it comes to clothing companies. Yet, Madewell's clothing is so incredibly made that it can seriously last you a while and you won't have to restock on jeans or sweaters every single year. All of their stuff is so versatile that is goes with a multitude of styles. As long as you are using some good deals and getting really quality made items then it cannot hurt to make the switch and try out some of their clothing here and there.

Madewell has seriously become one of my newest clothing obsessions. Everything they have is cute as heck and looks good on a plethora of different body types. I cannot wait to buy more jeans from them and see what else they do.

I Asked 22 People 4 Questions About George Floyd, And It's Clear Black Lives NEED To Matter More

Change can't happen tomorrow, because we're already 100 years behind today.

Taylar Banks

May 25, 2020: the day that will forever be remembered as the day George Floyd lost his life at the hands of cops.

The day that systematic racism again reared its head at full force in 2020.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
