This Eileen Fisher Dress Is Light, Fun, and Fabulous

    I find they always make linen dresses wayyyy too short….I am 5’3” so it is not that I am tall….I guess you can use it as a beach cover up….

      I am close to 5’8″ so I am confident this dress would fall below your knees. It’s all about your comfort level when it comes to dress or skirt lengths. I’m still loving above the knee, especially during the warmer months.

  2. I like 95 percent of what you post. Can’t win them all. This reminds of a beach cover up or maternity dress. Maybe if it wasn’t so short or baggy. No offense, you can’t like everything. That is what fashion is al about.

      My job is to introduce you to new ideas whether that’s makeup, skincare, exercise, a healthy diet, or clothes. Style is always about personal preference and what makes YOU feel confident. It’s funny but our demographic still looks at outfits as win or lose. Not sure why…

    Good morning Beth,
    Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger, sometimes you’re the ball🤷‍♀️
    Hit or miss…thanks for showing us the options out there!

    My immediate thought was beach coverup as well. The dress seems to hang oddly in the front and is not helped by the short length, so it’s a rare miss for me in terms of style. Accessories are nice.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      It might be a miss for you but it’s a hit in someone else’s eyes. Style is always about what YOU feel comfortable wearing. If you’re more tailored and buttoned up then a flowy dress isn’t your thing. But if you love a little boho chic or it’s a hot summer day then this dress is right up your alley.

    I know this silhouette is in style, but to me it does nothing to flatter. I appreciate the range of ideas you present to us, however!

    I have a dip-dye Eileen Fisher linen dress and LOVE IT for the summer. It always goes to the beach with me also … and whenever I wear it, I wear it as a dress, not a beach coverup!

    I love your look and enjoy the variety of your posts.

    My husband and I rented the movie Dog with Channing Tatum. I cried a few times. It’s a little slow at the beginning. But it gets better. I love your dress. I have one almost like that. I haven’t worn it yet. But I will when it gets and stays warmer. I’m not sure if I could wear the sandals. I need more support.

    Hi Beth!
    You work so hard to bring your readers lots of options on living with style and grace and we are so appreciative! However, I have to agree with the other comments that this dress misses the mark on several points. I like the idea of a cool, breezy linen dress for sweltering days, but you could do so much better than this one—just my opinion, though!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks for stopping by! but i will just mention that this dress misses the mark in your eyes. style is always about personal preference so if this isn’t your thing it isn’t. but eileen fisher knows that this is the perfect dress for many, many women.

        Well, I love the look and I am so surprised by those who do not. Not everything works for everyone. This look works for me. Thank you, Beth! And see CODA. It is outstanding.
