Shopping at Madewell!

If you didn't already know, Madewell is one of my favorite stores.  I love shopping there and everything in the store.  Every time I go there, I grab practically everything in the store to try on and my husband settles into the seat with his iPhone.  Wanted to share some of what I tried on and what I ended up bringing home with me!

I wanted to love the Warm-Up Sweater Jacket as I love big cozy cardigans but this was just a tad too big on me and not in the good boyfriend cardigan kind of way.  I did like the Climbing Vines tank that I'm wearing underneath (on sale online for $9.99!) so I did end up getting that.  The outfit on the left is the Sparkle Cardigan and the Tulum Top (both on sale) and I loved both pieces separately and paired together!  And I did buy them both!  The sparkle cardigan is quickly becoming one of my go-to cardigans (I was wearing it on my first Video Blog!).  Everything I'm wearing below is an XS, the blue cardigan runs big and the sparkle cardigan runs slightly small, the tanks run TTS.
I really wanted to like the Autumn Feathers Silk Dress but it was too baggy for my liking.  In the picture on the left it looks fine but on the right you can see how it's too loose in the waist and does a weird poof thing.  I'm wearing a size 0 and I'd say it runs slightly big so I left this one behind.  However, it was on sale and if it fit me I totally would've gotten it.
 

The top on the left is the Sparkle Shapes Tee (wearing XS and is TTS) and it comes in several colors (gray, blue and purple) which I tried on every color but loved the purple the best and it came home with me as well.  You'll have to click on the product link to see the sequins better but I loved the fun colors that it added to just a plain ol' tee.  (Jeans and boots are mine.)  If I didn't just buy a pair of black skinnies from J Crew the day before (I know, another pair, I love black skinnies) I totally would have bought these Legging Cords.  They are sooo comfy and I loved that they were casual but would still look great dressed up.  I'm wearing a size 25 and it runs TTS.  The plaid top is mine, what I came in wearing, but doesn't it go perfectly?  The top is by Vince.

I also wanted to bring this Glitter Flecked Pullover home with me but I left it behind (for now, will probably go back for it!) The fit is nice (wearing XS and fits TTS) and I adore the rainbow glitter flecks in the sweater.  I'm also wearing the Alexa Chung for Madewell high waist jeggings but they aren't online.  If you can get to a store go now because they were on sale for $19.99 so of course I had to get them.  They fit really well and I love the seam running down the middle of the legs.  Sorry I didn't capture a better picture of them. 

And lastly I bought the Supper Club Tee as I loved, loved the shoulder detailing.  (It's on sale for $39.99!  Wearing an XS and fits TTS)  This outfit (wearing with the Alexa Chung jeggings) is the perfect casual, throw it on kind of outfit where you can look cute without thinking too much about shoes and accessories!

I also bought a bracelet that's not online but they have lots of great jewelry in the store and online that's on sale.  So, all in all, a pretty good shopping trip right?  Thanks for coming shopping with me!  So tell me are you as obsessed with Madewell as I am?  :)  Also, if you shop online, don't forget to use your ebates for 1% cashback!  It's not much but at least it's something right?

  4. oh the Autumn Feathers Silk Dress looks so pretty!! i agree that it's too big though, which is too bad. the Tulum Top also looks super cute on you and paired with the cardigan, it's a perfect fall look!

    thanks for these wonderful dressing room pics. I'm new to Madewell so this gives me some more ideas on what I can find there!

  22. Thanks for sharing this! Hubby and I will often go cross-border shopping and hit up the University District in Seattle for shopping! After we hit up Dick's for burgers and shakes, I'll try and convince him to take me over to University Village and Madewell's!!!
