How fun that you have a new Madewell, but too bad that their pieces run too big for you! I have an oversized cardigan from there and even the XS is pretty roomy. Their shoes are really nice & TTS, at least the Aberdeen brogues I got last year are...very nicely made and quite comfortable. If you do see the Biellas let me know what you think! :)
Sorry I missed your comment the other day! I haven't seen these IRL. I have 2 J Crew stores nearby (I know, I know!) and they both mostly have just ballet flats (and the MacAlister wedges!). I'll let you know if I ever see them. I usually go to the one closest to me which is a big store. The other one is 30 min. away and the SA's are kinda snooty. :P A Madewell just opened near the snooty J Crew and I did check it out the other day. I tried just a few things on and everything was too big! The smallest size they have in store is XS and the SA said they only have XXS in select items online. Quality seemed good, though.
