I was very impressed by this Madison boutique which has a very different decor from its other sister stores. The shop’s almost undetectable brass door—decorated in cursive print spelling out “ten thirty-five Madison”—opens into a modern apartment-like boutique with washed wooden floorboards and antique mirrors. From the moment you walk in it feels that you've entered an upper east side apartment. The garments are more fancy than what you’d find at a typical J. Crew store: cashmere cardigans in all possible colors, short sleeve cashmere crewnecks and v-neck tunics. Walking through the store, shelves on the walls are full of sparkling pearls and bold necklaces neatly tucked inside glass box frames. There are books everywhere by American Pop Artist Andy Warhol and Picasso. Then, as if it couldn't get any better there is an entire back room of shoes!!!
The store has a special promotion going on 25% off all sandals, anything from metallic capri flats to espadrilles, to strappy heel sandals. And you are able to use your Red card for an additional 25% off! It didn't have a lot of tees and other basics, but I am personally getting bored with those anyway. And this is also the only store where I found "oh, so obsessed about" silk pleated ruffle cami (item 13306). I loved the feel of the boutique overall and recommend everyone to visit it at least once for a fabulous experience!
