Just yesterday I went to the opening party for our new Madewell! I'm so excited as I am increasingly drawn to their designs and am really in love with some of their fall pieces. I'll try to do a few posts on what I found. Here is my first!
** on a side note my apologies but my links do not seem to be working. Hopefully by the time I get this posted they will be better... working on it...
Silk Shirtdress (size 2) in Bloomsbury Blue
Gallerist Ponte Dress in Colorblock (size 0 and size 2 below) in navy
The size 0 fit better (a size down from my normal in dresses) although was quite form-fitting in the bust. I really like the side view - very slimming as it hits exactly at my natural waist. The fabric is very stretchy but I was aware of the polyester in it. I'm not a huge fan of this colorblocking and definitely prefer the plain colored version below.
Shirred Silk Dress (size 2)
Silk Pleated Shirtdress (size 2)
Silk Pleated Shirtdress (size 4)
Ballerina chic! Adorable. Besides the fact that it is still a bit tight in the bust I also don't like the darts there. They were sort of lumpy and like fake dress nipples. Dripples if you will. I think I just came up with a disturbing new term.
Striped Gondola Dress (XS)
You can't really tell in this picture but this dress is so lovely. The fit is perfect in my regular XS and there are two seams on either side of the bustline that run down the dress and make it quite slimming. Wish I had taken a better picture. Very comfy. Would love it with a big cozy cardigan, ankle boots and a big statement necklace.
Gallerist Ponte Dress (size 0)
I love this color. Was thinking about this for an October wedding but can't really decide if it is my style of not. Reminds me of some of the Ganni dresses that Anthropologie carries.
My love of Madewell continues, and now that I have a store 10 minutes away I anticipate checking out a lot more of their stuff.
More reviews coming, anyone biting on the extra 30% off of (dreaded) final sale?
