Clearly I’m visiting the Eileen Fisher store too often lately; I keep coming home with something. I tried this shirt on a whim last week and brought it home to try with some things. I saw it first in white, and was drawn to it (you know how I love a crisp white button front shirt), but then I remembered that I have a hard time wearing my white button front shirts, so why don’t I try black? Eureka. Why didn’t I think of that before??
I really enjoy black and white together, but the contrast is often jarring and too much for me to wear sometimes, so I end up not wearing my white button front shirts as often as I’d “like to” in theory. Enter the black one.
I’m not usually a fan of a-line shapes on me at all, but I feel like this one is sort of subtle? and since it’s crisp and black it doesn’t look as cutesy as a lot of a-line things can look on me. The XS fits well, but it is sort of big around the chest (story of my life) and down, but I tried the XXS and it also fit, but was a little too constricting at the shoulders/upper arms. I did not try the petite version because I wanted to be able to wear it with leggings and have it be long enough to cover my ass. Anyway, I generally don’t like the petite version of her clothes, even though I am petite; the fit is usually just wrong on me.
You’ll probably notice I’m not wearing this shirt with my EF organic cotton jeans, and that’s because I don’t like it with those jeans – it’s just too much “wide-ness” on me. And since my jeans are not cropped on me, and show no ankle at all, I just find the whole look “meh” and overwhelming. I love the shirt with my slimmer, more cropped Rachel Comey jeans though, and it works with leggings as well.
Another big hit from EF. I think I’ll cool it there for a little while though 🙂
Have you bought anything from Eileen Fisher lately that you love? Do tell!!
I’m still enjoying my last day in Florida, and you all will be happy to know that I have worn my Sunja Link dress and was very pleased with it. I will NOT be turning it into pillows!
