Madewell New Arrivals

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you've had a fantastic week and are looking forward to an even better weekend! :) In case you haven't already heard the news: "This Just In"...Madewell has added New Arrivals to their website, and boy are there a lot of cute new pieces! Plenty of new tops, tees, dresses, etc. to look at and you can receive Free Shipping/No Minimum on all orders with code WEEKEND if you're planning on giving something a try, too.)

I spent some time on the Madewell site and here are some of the new arrivals that piqued my interest. :)



*Widelegger Jeans (shown with the Saint james® aviso tee)


*Striped zip-pocket tee . Not so sure about the zipper on this one, but the colors and stripes are really cute...would need to see IRL for a final decision.)

What are your thoughts on the Madewell New Arrivals? Do you see anything you like? Are you planning on trying anything? Please do share! :)

Have a beautiful and blessed day!

xoxo,

  2. Not necessarily new arrivals, I'm lusting after several of their silk blouses. The shadow stripe is top of my list.

  3. Thanks for pointing me to a site I rarely visit. The shadows & light shirtdress look amazing. How is their sizing? Does it run similar to J Crew, or smaller?

  6. JulieStyles: You're welcome! When Madewell first opened up I never imagined I would consider shopping there, but I actually now like more at Madewell than I do at J.Crew. So far everything I've ordered has been really great quality, too.

    As for sizing, I have been finding that most items run the same size as J.Crew, so I order my J.Crew size. I've also called or inquired on the chat feature for specific measurements if I'm just too uncertain about a particular piece. (Just an added note, you can return Madewell and J.Crew items in the same box back to the J.Crew warehouse.)

  7. Thank, Fabulous Florida Mommy. I did chat regarding the sizing for the Shadows and Light dress and oddly they only had the chest measurements, which were more like hip measurements IMHO. I'd prefer to have a hip measurement too, but with the free shipping on $100 order, I might order a couple of sizes if I decide to bite the bullet. I love the olive/beige color, but the black/white seems more versatile....decisions, decisions :-)

  8. JulieStyles: I really love both colors of the dress. I guess my decision would end up being based on what the olive grove color looks like IRL. Also, from the picture of the dress and the description of it having a *straight skirt*, I'm thinking the hips are probably pretty close to the bust measurement. I do think ordering 2 sizes is a good idea, especially since they have the free ship code and then it would only be $5.95 to return the one that doesn't fit. Let me know what you think of it if you end up ordering. :)

  9. I am thinking of the shadow stripe in naval blue, FFM. I am trying to decide about size. I am a 2 in J. Crew perfect shirts, and this one is a full cut so maybe an xsmall instead of a small. Although maybe slouchier is better. Decisions, decisions!

  10. Madewell items can be so cute. I wish returns were allowed to the store. I'd probably take more risks. I've been very happy with the things I've recvd and only returned a few.

  11. FYI ladies: FREE SHIPPING with NO MINIMUM on all orders with code WEEKEND. YAY!!! :)

  12. Desert Flower: I think the blue is beautiful and an XSmall would likely work best. Why don't you use the chat feature to get exact measurements on it?

  13. Gigi: You can return online Madewell orders to any Madewell B&M. Do you have one near you?

  14. I like the drawstring henley tank (even more because it's not "dry clean"); I also have my eye on the silk slouch trousers. Not sure if the silk slouch trousers would look too MC Hammer, but I think they would go well with a lot of items that are already in my wardrobe.
