A Little Spring in My Step

My love affair with Eileen continues with these amazing sandals I recently purchased.  I love this color which is called “Sand” because a neutral shade like this goes with just about everything, doesn’t it?  And the heel height, a nice 3 inches, makes me feel so statuesque on my otherwise average 5 feet 5 inch frame.   Before you start lamenting that 3 inches is way too high for you, let me tell you that these shoes do not really feel like they are 3 inches tall.  The heel is what’s called “stacked” which thus contributes to the above average comfort level of these shoes.  The shoes feel quite sturdy and comfortable actually, even during my 4 hours of standing at work the other day.  I love these sandals so much that I just ordered them in black.

Come On, Eileen

I admit, I have a bit of a love affair with Eileen.  Eileen Fisher, that is.  Over the past couple years,  I have collected quite a few of her pieces, from the funky harem pants to the classic cashmere shawl.  Her name is synonymous with high quality and simple, clean lines and her pieces are on heavy rotation in my weekly wardrobe planning.  I have been wearing these “slouchy pants” at least once a week since purchasing them.

Super comfy, they are made from a very soft viscose and spandex, so you also get the benefit of some stretch there.  I also love that I can throw them into the washing machine and they travel quite well and don’t wrinkle.  You can dress them up, dress them down, throw on a cropped sweater or an oversized shirt, the possibilities are endless when styling these pants.  True, the prices of EF clothing are on the high end but that’s what happens when you pay for clothes that are, in my opinion, made to last.

Thanks Eileen.
