Madewell Lamppost Sweaterdress OOTD

Today I received the Striped Lamppost Dress. I have blogged about this dress here before. This year I tried both this one as well as J. Crew's Stripe Sweater-Dress (see it here). I chose Madewell's because it is a bit thicker and is made of pure merino wool. At the time I am writing this, limited sizes are available on the website, but I was able to get mine by calling a store and asking to do a charge/send.

My Tall Minnie Pants In Bi-Stretch Wool haven't arrived yet, so I am wearing the twill ones from last year. You can get this year's version here. I ordered the tall version of these pants because I would like them a bit longer for the winter. I blogged about the wool minnies here before.

And as I am browsing through the website, I see more new arrivals. Sigh!...  I already picked a few favourites and am hoping to see and try on a few of them soon.

  1. I'm trying to stay away from this very tempting Madewell sale- I think I hit my January budget 10 days into the month so now I need to just stay away for a bit!

    The striped dress is great- I love merino wool, and the colour combination is so warm and pretty!

  2. This OOTD looks awesome on you! I never found the dress, but thanks so much for the tips!!! Enjoy

  3. So cute - glad to hear of an alternative to the stripe sweater dress at JC.

  4. I bought this dress a while ago when there was a promotion in store and I love it a lot. I am 5'8 and I always wear it with tights.

  5. That damngreendress, sorry to read this! Madewell sure has a lot of pretties!

    MB, thank you! Hope you will love it when you get it!

    OperaRach, I love it. It has more texture than the purple one I got from JC.

    jessie, I am glad you love it too. Yes, I agree, tights is the way to go.

  6. Hi Rose have a question for you, have you ever tried on this skirt: bluebell paisley skirt from Madewell?
    It just popped back up in a size 4 and was wondering if their pencil skirts fit like J Crew. Thanks in advance for you time. MB

  7. Hi Rose, lamppost dress arrived today. Love it, looks great with tights! Thank you again, really appreciate all of your posts and tips.
