If you're gonna brave the mall any time soon, our rec is to do it before Black Friday. Hear that, kiddos? Before Black Friday.
And if you live in, uh, reality, you know you're gonna have to agree with us. So hit the Toll Road tomorrow and go celebrate the kickoff of Madewell's Holiday Denim Drive during Denim After Dark. Drop off your old jeans and Madewell will donate 'em to an arts charity. As a sweet incentive, you'll get a card for 15 percent off on your first pair of Madewell jeans in the new year.
While fulfilling its role as the hipper little sis of J. Crew, Madewell's signature look generally involves slashed-up skinny jeans and hipster scarves. Denim After Dark dishes up 20 percent off all jeans, denim styling and fit consultations, free on-site denim hemming, yummy treats and a live DJ. It's happening Thursday, Nov. 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Tysons Corner Center (1961 Chain Bridge Road, McLean, Va.)
