My one complaint with Madewell is the (is it possible?) even crazier pricing games they play. Items will constantly change price (on sale and then suddenly back to full price like the Billie Boots) and really old items will pop back on the website for extraordinarily high prices (hello Sketchbook Dress for $124.99!) Plus there is still final sale! Please make it go away.
Still, overall I am really enjoying getting to know the brand and appreciated the cookies and seltzer they had on the table for Mother's Day!
Silk Cami Dress in Sungarden (Size 2)
J'adore this dress. It is so adorable and the fit is spot on. I generally do not do camisole top dresses because I cannot go braless and I don't like the look of my straps peeking out everywhere. What I really want is this same silhouette but in the Flora print - so bright and springy! My normal size 2 felt good with a very slight blousiness at the sides. It's actually quite fitted on top which creates a nice balance with the skirt.

Tailored Silk Dress (size 0)
It's sort of hard to tell from the pictures but this dress is absolutely perfect for an LBD. I would take my usual size 2 in this (this dress is a 0). The waist is nicely nipped in and everything else drapes beautifully. I like the skirt which is almost sort of an a-line - not too full. The back opening, while a lovely detail, is not great for me.
Striped Tee Dress (size S)
This used to be called the Striped Bookplate Dress and was sold in stores at least a year ago. I need an XS and perhaps the length to be a bit shorter. On sale in store for $89.99 - even with 20% off I couldn't justify it. It's a really simple dress and I sort of love it but that's a lot of money for a glorified t-shirt. The asymmetry is really interesting, not sure it's flattering.
