Eileen Fisher: Not Just For Your Mom Anymore

Friday, July 30, 2010

Today's post is by Carly Petrone. Carly is a freelance writer in New York City who is also a make-up artist, classical pianist, alumna of the famed improv training group, Groundlings, and my sweet cousin. Enjoy!

If you haven’t stepped into an Eileen Fisher store lately, or if you’re like me and had never been inside one of her stores, don’t waste another second! Whether you’re looking for the perfect little black dress or a casual summer outfit her clothes are now cuter than ever. Although it is still on the pricey side (over $200 for a simple black dress) it’s well worth it. I just bought the perfect casual, knee-length dress for summer that can easily be dressed up or down. My mom was shopping with me and took the same dress in another size. The other plus about her clothes is they run big. I was a size small for the first time since I was ten!

Living in New York in a record hot summer has led me to wear dresses on a daily basis. I wish I had shopped here sooner…I would have stocked up! Her materials aren’t heavy and very breathable. They’re also not bulky and don’t wrinkle easily, making them the first thing I grab when packing and/or throwing something into my suitcase. My good friend introduced me to their dresses after she bought this below in two different colors (again on sale!):

Handkerchief Linen Racer-Back Cami Dress

Was $238.00

Select colors from $119.00

Here are some other great looks that are available both at her store and online:

Linen Jersey Racer-Back Tunic

Happy shopping!

    I completely agree. There is nothing like Eileen Fisher for timeless quality and style. And most of her designs are universally flattering. Don't miss out!

  2. I love her clothes! They have such a fun, hip look to them. I have that exact black dress up above. In the review I wrote for it I gave it the 5 stars it earned. I originally bought it as a simple summer dress, but I've been wearing it all year. It looks great with a shawl or a little sweater, and leggings if it gets too cold. I love it! It was worth every penny.
