Today’s dressing room diaries started with Champagne and lunch with a girlfriend. It’s been a long time since we visited so I felt a little celebration was in order and Neiman Marcus always has Champagne at the ready.
After all, when is a glass of Pink Champagne ever a bad idea?
After lunch, Elizabeth, who writes the fun blog The Vintage Contessa was off to have adventures and I hit the Eileen Fisher department.
I made a small detour into the cashmere department…just to touch… I’ll be back to try on later! It was drool worthy.
I fell in love with this raincoat. The color, the reversibility and hood that makes such a dramatic collar, all appeal to me. The Stone color is a great neutral on me, and the Oregano (green) was surprisingly flattering. Softer colors are best on my own coloring, but I seldom reach for green. It’s available in black and for once I didn’t go for that.
Here’s the other side. The front has an asymmetrical closing which I always like. Almost double breasted but without the extra row of buttons.
These are Eileen Fisher Slim cropped pants in her fabulous washable crepe fabric.
Although I like how the rolled sleeve cuff shows the interior color, this coat was too large on me so I need the small.
Fun rain gear is a great way to offset the gloom of drizzly days. I have several utilitarian options in my wardrobe but always like to add unique ones.
What are you wearing in the rain this year?
