I almost never go onto those flash sale websites anymore. I used to check them out a few years ago when they began proliferating, because who doesn’t like a bargain? I rarely saw anything that I wanted even with deep discounts, and lost interest. But a few weeks ago I received a notice that Gilt Groupe would be featuring Eileen Fisher items, and figured with my affinity for the brand it would be worth checking out.
Most of what I saw were either items similar to others already in my wardrobe, or pieces that aren’t in my wheelhouse. I was somehow drawn to this top even though I had a feeling it wasn’t “good on paper” for me (cropped, boxy) and wouldn’t flatter my shape. I carefully checked the return policy before purchasing too. When I opened the package and held it up, first thought was “no way.” But I tried it on anyway, and immediately liked what it adds in terms of texture and proportion even if it isn’t conventionally flattering.
Earrings: Argento Vivo, similar in silver // Cropped Sweater: Eileen Fisher, similar // Angled Top: Eileen Fisher // Cuff: Vintage Hermès from Beladora, another option // Jeans: AG “Angelina” // Boots: Gentle Souls
Do you shop on flash sale sites? Any great finds? Do you sometimes ignore conventional figure flattery rules if you really like an item?
