Certified organic cotton with Lycra®
I wanted to try this dress, since it had gone on sale. It's a unique design in that you have a choice of being comfortable around the bust (and way too loose around the rest of your body) or snugly fitted around the bust (and nicely flowing around the rest of your body. It's an A-shape for sure, and I'd prefer if it were a little more evenly tapered. However, it's comfortable, soft, and will be nice for summer. Eileen Fisher utilizes similar color palates from previous seasons, so I have an E.F. scarf that will go perfectly with the Cobblestone. All in all, a nice summer shift.
A very nice simple basic dress, the cut is flattering and skims the curves nicely. Its a good wardrobe staple. Lovely thick fabric- nice quality I do wish it came in better colors; a royal blue would be great in this dress, the grey is a little boring!
I purchased this in cobblestone & the color didn't work with my ash blonde hair & cool complexion. I am 5'6", 163 lbs & usually wear a size 12. I ordered size Lg & although it fit in the bust, it was too large everywhere else. Unfortunately it looked very blah on me so back it goes.
I purchased the black dress last year and wore it out. Well, not really, but I washed the black dress so much I use it for more casual wear this year. New, the black dress has a finish which looked quite expensive. I wore it with pearls and a sweater to dinner.
This year I purchased a new black dress for work and dressier occasions and the cobblestone. I love the cobblestone dress, it looks gray in some light but contains the brown tones I look better in.
I love the style, it is comfortable, flattering, and can be worn leggings, tights, or sandals. It is practical but something I pull out to look presentable anywhere. Love them.
And because I am not a circus, I have no need for a circus tent, not even one that is constructed of lovely knit fabric.
I wanted to like this one, really I did, but it's just so shapeless and unflattering that it had to go back. Usually a size medium/8, I ordered the "small" in this dress, following GH's sizing advice. The size was correct. The cut was not correct for me. Perhaps if you are 8 months pregnant, it will work for you.
I was a little disappointed in this dress because it is too small in the hips. Rather than return it, I think I'll really try to lose 20 pounds - SERIOUSLY! It's a super style but I don't currently flatter it!
The dress contained alot of fabric in the skirt and looked ridiculous on me. It was not becoming and I am returning it. The photo does not, in my view, depict its actual "flow." I dont fault Garnet Hill but I am disappointed in the Fisher design.
I purchased this dress in gray and black. They arrived a week ago and I have worn them both. They wash really well which is a big plus. I love the shape and the size. I am 6' and 138 pounds. I purchased a small and they are they perfect size. I love how they can be dressed up or worn casually. This is my go-to, especially when I travel, dress.
This dress drapes beautifully and can be worn all year round by layering and adding leggings and boots. It's a perfect go-to simple dress that can be worn on its own or with great accessories to dress it up.
I love Eileen Fischer products and its "green" production goals. I always find the products are of high quality. The dresses are also not too short for a woman over 25 and they travel very well. I just wish the clothing was more affordable. I can only afford to purchase Eileen Fischer on sale.
I LOVE this dress and I admit I'm a huge Eileen Fisher fan. A bit about me: 5'4 / 115lbs. I'm also not one for fussy fashion and trends.
The Petite Small works great for me because it isn't too tight in the arms/armpits. It may been too loose around the waist and hips area but for summer I don't mind.
I ordered this one in Black and cannot wait to wear it. I can see it worn with ankle boots, sandles and cute low profile vans, converse or keds. Paired with a scarf/wrap for chilly nights and a nice crossover/tote and voila; lots of options.
Thanks GH for a selection of clothing made for women in their 40s. FTW.
I have bought two of these dresses...one black and one browm. They are so very comfortable and I enjoy wearing them both with leggings. What a fun look! I can find nothing negative about this purchase.
