Just a little random-ness for your Tuesday 🙂
ICYMI, Emerson Fry FW15 is available now, and the new collection is full of beautiful, beautiful pieces. All the wool pieces are made from Imperial Yarn, which as I mentioned last week, is based in the US, sustainably and ethically produced “with utmost respect and care for the land and animals.”
Emerson Fry has been gracious enough to send me a few pieces to review: The Triangle sweater, the Yoshi sweater (black), the Yoshi tunic (topography print!) and a core bra. Other than receiving product, I have not been compensated in any way for writing about Emerson Fry, and am not expected to write anything specific, or give a positive review of anything I receive. I genuinely am excited about the company and the products and am grateful to be able to partner with Emerson Fry to provide you with honest reviews of some of their pieces.
Everything should arrive Wednesday, and I will get images/reviews up as soon as I can on Thursday in case you’re thinking about ordering anything. If you want to leave a comment here with any specific questions on the things I’m receiving, please do and I’ll respond to them after my initial impressions on Wednesday.
I have a few other things on my shopping list though, most importantly this organic cotton tank – I love the length and that it’s organic cotton. I’d also love to try a luxe Emerson crew neck shirt; so elegant for layering. Of course the pants are appealing also, but since I’d have to get them hemmed, I always worry about losing detail. What are your thoughts on the collection? Are you interested in ordering anything?
On to other things…My Reformation dress arrived yesterday, and I’m going to wear it today and get an outfit picture up for you tomorrow. Basically, it’s AMAZING. It’s still available in a large petite in black and a few other sizes in the other colors (except white) – AND it’s marked down even more to $109 now. This dress is SO well made, and fits impeccably. The sleeves are just a teeny bit snug on me (large upper arms, ugh!), but otherwise, the petite length is great on my 5’3″ frame (comes just above my ankles) and again, the fit is beautiful. The side slits come up rather high, pretty high for me, but not high enough to be scandalous. I love the look both tied at the waist and un-tied. So far (without even wearing it out), I highly recommend this dress.
Also. Everlane. As you know, I don’t get overly excited about new clothing releases much anymore, BUT, when I took a look at the new luxe sweater collection, I couldn’t get that evergreen sweater out of my head. The mock neck, no less. I don’t know what it is about that combo that just has me intrigued. I really am trying to balance out my mostly oversized wardrobe with more fitted pieces, perhaps that’s it? The sweater looks nice and luxe, and fitted, generally, also shorter. I need at least one such piece in my closet, so…ordered. In a size small.

Finally, thanks again to a tip from a reader, I’ve been devouring all things Elizabeth Suzann lately. A designer from Nashville, Elizabeth Suzann is:
… a label born out of dislike for excess and desire for quality. Practicality, elegance, comfort and attention to detail are at the forefront of our philosophy.
And the new collection is divine (see image above…). What do you think?
