Here’s a better look at the Eileen Fisher linen dress I mentioned in my post last week. It is truly the easiest thing to wear, and I love the 3/4 sleeves, although I generally roll them up to my elbows. In this picture, I’m wearing a slip, but normally I wear boyshorts and a “regular” bra.
Sizing note: I tried on the medium in this as well; my store had only the XS and Medium in stock. I initially liked the way the medium fit too, it was quite big, but still nice. When I tried on the XS, I liked it better on me because it fits better up top, but who’s to say I wouldn’t have also liked the small? My point is that there’s a difference but not a HUGE difference in the sizing- it’s so subtle, you may be happy with a medium, even if you usually take a large, or whatever.
Again, EF sizing is sort of complicated, and hard to pin down, but I’ve found it’s worth the trial and error.
This week, I’ll talk more about my other linen pieces: Elizabeth Suzann, James Perse, Everlane, Zady, Grana…and finish up my “summer of linen” series. And finally, I’ll tell you my FAVORITE LINEN piece and why 🙂
Oh, and I just ordered this Amour Vert linen tee, because it’s nearly identical to a Joie one I had and loved until it fell apart a few years ago. I hope it’s even better than that one. This is my first order from Amour Vert, but I’m looking forward to more; I also had this skirt in my cart, but it sold out before I could checkout. If you’re interested in anything, use my referral link for a $25 credit (I’ll get one too).
In the meantime, you tell me yours. Favorite linen, that is…
*edited to add: speaking of linen…Fog Linen works is having a sale, some great pieces!!
