HAPPY GALENTINE’S DAY: TEAM MADEWELL’S WORK WIFE SHOUT-OUTS

It’s almost our favorite holidaaay: Galentine’s Day (!). In celebration, we asked our team to wax poetic about the women they l-o-v-e working with—and two Dolly Parton references, an anecdote about dollhouse furniture and a pizza roll exposé ensued.

FROM: Mia, copy connoisseur

TO: Jen, brand creative boss

IF JEN HAD A THEME SONG: “You Were Meant For Me” by Jewel

FUN FACT: She once booked a trip to Mexico City so she could bring back a suitcase full of dollhouse furniture.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: I love when I hear her laugh out loud from three rows away as we chat online about something silly.

FROM: Julie, denim design expert

TO: Kristen, denim production pro

IF KRISTEN HAD A THEME SONG: “Barbie Girl” by Aqua

FUN FACT: She’s one year older than me, but she’s basically my mother 😂

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: She always compliments me and teases me about small things, but I love that about our relationship.

FROM: Jayna, copy connoisseur

TO: Coco, design genius

IF COCO HAD A THEME SONG: “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton

FUN FACT: She loses the same earring every single day and finds it in the same place every single night (the shower).

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: We sit across from each other so I can pop up (aka prairie dog) and ask her questions all day long, plus she’s always down to order matzo ball soup with me.

FROM: Remi, design coordination whiz

TO: Lisa, executive assistant extraordinaire

IF LISA HAD A THEME SONG: “Tiny Dancer” by Florence + The Machine

FUN FACT: She sees Mariah Carey perform at Madison Square Garden every year.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: Sending me pics of the cute stuff her son is doing, answering all my calls and texts, bringing in something delicious she’s baked.

FROM: Lisa, executive assistant extraordinaire

TO: Remi, design coordination whiz

IF REMI HAD A THEME SONG: “Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J (as in knock out the day—nothing can stop her from getting things done)

FUN FACT: She is super warm and friendly but NOT a hugger.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: Her overall positivity and snacks!

FROM: Brynn, merch maven

TO: Hannah, also a merch maven

IF HANNAH HAD A THEME SONG: “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton

FUN FACT: She’s low-key sad that she missed the holiday party at the pizza place downstairs.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: She’s always there to listen to my dumb stories, chat about Riverdale and go to Griddle’s.

FROM: Hannah, merch maven

TO: Brynn, also a merch maven

IF BRYNN HAD A THEME SONG: “Super Trouper” by ABBA

FUN FACT: She got exposed in a meeting with our whole department for buying Totino’s Pizza Rolls the night before because she accidentally left her receipt on the table.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: She’s a constant support system throughout the day, a fellow Riverdale fan and is ALWAYS down to go to Griddle’s. [Ed. note: Do these two know each other or what?]

FROM: Kelci, social media savant

TO: Emily, copy connoisseur

IF EMILY HAD A THEME SONG: “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison (because I can actually see her heading to the beach with a transistor radio)

FUN FACT: She has the best unassuming laugh! It always feels like such a privilege when I get one out of her.

HOW SHE GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY: My job literally depends on her—she’s so fast with her work and never seems to get rattled.
