Striped Sleeveless Flare Dress – size 00P
Measurements: Armpit to armpit 15″, Waist: 13″ Length: 32″
Dislikes: The material is linen so it’ll require a lot of maintenance to get out the wrinkles. The straps a bit too skinny and doesn’t hide your bra strap completely. It’s very loose in the bust area and you can see straight down the dress. I wish it navy/cream vs. black/white.
Dot print sleeveless flare dress – size 00P
Measurements: Shoulder to shoulder 12.5″, Armpit to armpit 15″,Waist: 13″, Length 34″
Likes: I love the buttercup yellow color and dot print. The boatneck and full skirt style won me over. The dress is fully lined so it’s not see through which I was a bit concerned about with the light color.
Dislikes: The dots were much bigger than I thought. This dress runs big and long. The 00P would fit someone one size up from me. It had lots of potential but it didn’t do it for me.
Measurements: Shoulder to shoulder 14″, Armpit to armpit 17.5 “, Sleeve 17″, Length 21”
Likes: I adore the pale peachy color and crocheted detail. It’s very feminine and very pretty in person. The length is perfect for someone my height but may be too short if you are taller.
Dislikes: It’s very wide and boxy and will require some slimming. The back is sheer and if you don’t like your bra showing, I would suggest a cami. It’s partially lined but only in the front. The sleeves are wide and will need to be taken in as well.
Verdict: Requires too much work, return.
Essential Striped Tie-Front Top – size small
Likes: I love blouses with tie fronts and this one seemed cuter than the one from H&M (see here). It’s a silky polyester material and tucks in much better than the H&M version.
Dislikes: The armholes are big and runs wide. I’ll have to slim this but should be an easy fix.
Verdict: Still debating
Measurements: Waist 12.5″, Length 15.5″
Likes: Another polka dot skirt? Yup. After trying it on in size small which was huge (28″ waist), I saw that they carried XS online. The XS is a bit loose but doable. The material doesn’t wrinkle and the pleats drape and lay nicely.
Dislikes: The exposed zipper gets stuck and may snag your shirt. One of the reviews mentioned this and sure enough, it happened to me too! My dad suggested taking a skinny candle and rubbing it on the zipper to help so we shall see if that works.
Silhouette skirt – size XS
Measurements: Waist 11 3/4″, Length 15″
Likes: This skirt was recommended to me by WhatJessWore. I love yellow and have been looking for another yellow skirt to replace the one my sister gave me (linen and wrinkly). The waist is tiny and the skirt fits me perfectly. I love the details and the material doesn’t wrinkle. This was my first purchase from Madewell and I’m pleasantly surprised at the sizing and quality. It seems to run smaller than J.Crew.
Dislikes: I didn’t care too much for the hefty price tag. The skirt is 1″ shorter than what the online description stated.
My sister just sent me these adorable sandals from Marshalls. She knew how much I loved my gold ones (see here) from the same brand. They are kids sandals but do not look kiddish at all. They are hand made in Italy and the insoles are cushioned. They are so comfortable! My feet are very picky when it comes to flats and these get a thumbs up from me. It’s perfect for Summer. Please note that these run smaller than my gold ones (I originally got a 4 but realized they were too big – thanks Shira for finding a size 3 for me). The 4’s in the ones my sister gave me (above) fit like the 3 in the other gold ones. Hope that makes sense.
