Eileen Fisher system tank dress | Medium
The weather is beautiful here, so I’ve been getting some great mileage out of my Robert Clergerie Alice slides. And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t think of getting a second pair during Shopbop’s coupon code (I really love the “denim” pair, and the natural raffia, but it’s sold out in my size), but I will not. I love THIS pair I already have.
Yesterday to the “mall” I wore my Ulla Johnson overalls, with an Everlane cashmere sweater underneath, and was super-comfortable. Overalls aren’t idea for trying things on, since you don’t have a top AND a bottom already to pair with things, but I managed.
As you can see above, I went to Eileen Fisher to try on some of the system pieces, and new arrivals. As you know if you follow me on Instagram, I fell HARD for that denim/tencel jacket (which is duster length on me). I tried it on a whim, and really loved it. I know I probably wouldn’t wear it if I bought it, although since I tried it on, I’ve put together dozens of outfits with it in my head. Ugh. I would get the size small if I did, for sure; the medium was much too big. Even the XS might work better. I don’t know. It was really a great piece, and could be very versatile for mild spring and fall weather.
I also loved the silk cropped straight pants, and have a petite large coming to the store for me to try on to help make the decision between the medium (which is what I’m wearing in the pictures) and the other size. Eileen Fisher is SO HARD to fit for me – I pretty much have to try every size on in everything before I make a decision. And I have to say I like these silk pants better than Elizabeth Suzann’s. I liked ES’s silk better though, it seemed much more substantial. But the EF pants are straighter, and the waistband is narrower, which I appreciate. The size medium was a bit big on me at the waist and hips, and maybe a TEENY bit long, but were SO COMFORTABLE. Honestly, they fit me exactly like I’d want them to, sort of just hanging on my body, but I want them to be a little shorter. maybe.
We’ll see after I try the petite large on next week. I may just end up buying the medium. The silk shell I tried on with the silk pants was beautiful too, and if I got it I would get a small. But I think I’d rather wear a t-shirt, or linen top with these pants to give them a bit of edge.
I didn’t like the tank dress at all – I think it’s a little boring, and as you can see, tight on me at the hips in the medium petite. I would have tried more sizes on, but overall I just found the dress sort of blah. Good in a way, I just like a more interesting/open neckline on me.
The stretch organic cotton wide leg cropped pants were very good also – they’re a lower rise, but fit well (aside from the pockets sticking out a little) in the legs/hips/waist, and were a great length on me.
I didn’t buy anything, but will make a decision about the silk pants next week. And maybe get the duster. I don’t know…I’m torn between being practical about what I can use in my wardrobe and adding more pieces I just love. And man, I loved that.
I did receive the No6 open toe wedges I ordered from Shopbop yesterday and promptly sent them back. So weird. But I think I’m completely over wearing any heel at all. Besides platforms/flatforms.
Oh, and I received my Girlfriend Collective leggings this week and already wore them to Pure Barre; I’ll have a review next week. First impressions: LOVE.
You’re probably tired of my mentioning James Altucher’s podcasts, but this one with Yuval Harari was AMAZING. I’m going to read both of his books as follow-up, but I found myself completely engrossed and enjoying listening to the conversation so much that I’m going to listen again. Also, totally impressed that he meditates for two hours every day. I need to prioritize meditation again, but I can’t seem to find/make the time.
Oh, and I just accidentally purchased season 3 of Schitt’s Creek on Amazon (didn’t realize my one-click ordering was on!) so that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend!!
What have you bought, watched, read or listened to lately?
