Tis the season to wear plaid while shopping & DIYing with Blog friends

Last week I went to a little DIY KC blogger gathering at Madewell!  My DIY skills are not nearly as impressive as my shopping skills are, but even I was able to embellish a little something something (you'll see tomorrow).  What you get to see today are a few pics of the store all done up with great outfit inspiration, what I wore (a Madewell dress, of course) and what I got! 
Keep reading to see all the goods...

And after hanging out in the beautifully decorated store with my blogger friends, I did manage to head home with a couple goodies (how could I resist a shopping discount...):

{Stripe shirt with a sweet bow detail in the back and Houndstooth sweater coat perfect for when I don't want to wear an actual coat}

Big thanks to Erin for organizing the event and Denene for taking the lovely photos (iPhone pics are mine).  You can see more pics from the event here and here.  Shout out to Heather, Shea and Sandy in the above pictures. 
Stay tuned for my DIY masterpiece tomorrow. :)
