Of course a trip to UVillage always has to include a visit to the store next door to JC, Madewell. I am relatively new to Madewell, just like it is new to JC, but I am liking what I see in there. The Striped Sweaterknit Hoodie seems to be sold out on the website (it wasn't even there yesterday), but when I called the UVillage store they said they could arrange a charge/send. This hoodie is very soft due to the lambswool and angora content, and I loved it best of all things in the store. And I thought I was done with stripes already.
The Leopard Print Sidewalk Skimmers are size 7 1/2, a half size smaller than my regular shoe size, and they fit quite comfortably.
The Archive Leather Boot in English saddle and size 7. I was shocked to see I could fit in a boot a whole size smaller than my regular shoe/boot size. Also, my calf is 13.5 inches at its thickest, so I was able to fit the jeans inside the boot as well, so keep that in mind when ordering. I liked these boots better than the Booker Boots from JC, which I blogged about here before.
Striped Outfield Sweater in size XS and almond blossom. It comes in 4 other colours. Initially I grabbed a size S, my regular sweater size, but it seemed a bit too roomy for my taste, so I also tried on the XS (top photo) as well. It's a cotton/wool slub fabric of nice quality, in my opinion.

This winter I seem to be a lot more into sweaterdresses (see OOTD's here and here), so of course I had to check out those too. I found a few, among them the Shadowbox Sweaterdress in size S and navy and red colours. A bit too short for me (I am 5'6"), but might work nicely with Wool Minnie Pants or with the Everyday Knit Leggings and a belt.
The last item is the Striped Lamppost Sweaterdress, also size S. This one's all merino wool and loved it, but again, too short to wear in its own.
