Eileen Fisher is offering 15% off regular-priced styles with code EMAIL18 through the weekend and I’ve been thinking about a couple of things.
I REALLY love the morse code “robe” (above) and it is a nice length on me in the petite size small, but I’m not confident I’d wear it enough to make it worth while. It would be a very nice actual robe though LOL.
I tried on this jumpsuit because I LOVE IT SO MUCH, but it was much too large on me up top, even in the XS, and the back zip is just too much to deal with – WHY put a back zip on a jumpsuit??
This striped hemp/organic cotton sweater is similar to the reclaimed hemp sweater I got earlier this year, but a little heavier I think. I’m not getting it, but my mother is 😉 – I recommend it for a nice mid-weight layer if you’re looking for something like that.
This kimono jacket always catches my eye in the store although it is quite simple. It would be a great piece for traveling (my mom has a few pairs of the silk crepe pants she wears constantly while traveling; she’s taking them to Scotland next week) since it’s easily washable and resists wrinkling.
Finally, I am VERY intrigued by these sneakers – maybe white? maybe black? – but I have not had great luck with Eileen Fisher shoes in the past. I may try them anyway just to see. I love how sustainable they are, and that the back slips down to wear as slides. (I can’t resist a slide…)
Ace & Jig is launching new fall arrivals today and I’m really interested in buying a piece. Even though I returned everything I tried so far, I do have a deep appreciation for the textiles and the work that goes into them. I’m starting to get it 🙂 The problem is the sizing. I did try the heights jumper in fiesta and ordered both the small and the medium and the fit of both was horrible on me; I would have needed the large for it to fit me like I wanted it to, and even so I’m not sure it would have worked. BUT, the textile was AMAZING. Barney’s has some new items on pre-sale BTW. Ugh..I’m sort of intrigued by this reversible jacket…and this martinique textile – this casey dress specifically…okay update: I ordered the casey dress in martinique from Covet & Lou in size small. Yipee!! Oh, and another update, I ordered the bo skirt in tuxedo. Also small. I wonder if that will be too small for me though. We’ll see. I had to try!!!
Casey dress in Martinique – still available in Large!
Ha. It’s August and I’m ready for summer to be over, hence all the shopping. I alway get this way with impending changes of seasons; I start thinking about NEW NEW NEW. And as you know, I’m in the mood for color and pattern. I have also been slowly cleaning out my closet of things I haven’t worn much. (I think this dress I’m wearing is getting cut today…it’s just too much)
What’s caught your eye recently? Are you already starting to work on your fall/winter wardrobe?
Did you guys watch Succession (HBO)?? THAT SHOW. It was like a trainwreck I couldn’t look away from. The characters are all pretty much hateful, which is unsettling, but I kept watching thinking someone would redeem his/herself eventually??
I’m also watching Sharp Objects. I like it. I think I read the book? and I think I remember how it ends? but I’m not sure? haha…tells you how much of an impact it had on me. I just remember after reading Gone Girl a million years ago I sought out her other books to read as well, so I must have read it LOL
Right now I’m reading The Essex Serpent, which is totally random and I forget how I found it, but I love it. The writing is beautiful, which is what I appreciate more and more lately. I still need a good story, but I am really enjoying really EXCELLENT wordsmith also.
So excited about the Elizabeth Suzann meet-up I’m hosting tomorrow!! Wish you all could be here 🙂
Hope you have a great weekend!
