I’ve been watching Emerson Fry for a few years now but was hesitant to order since I couldn’t find a whole lot out on the web about fit. Some of you may recall the Leopard Linen Coat from years ago. EF received a lot of requests for it and so they brought it back this Fall for a limited pre-order, which sold out.
After receiving an offer for $75 off my order over $200 I took the plunge and placed an order. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived 5 days later. Upon opening the box I immediately noticed a pleasant lavender smell that came from this little sachet. That was a really unexpected and nice touch.
~ Triangle Tank
, Coal, size 6 ~
I really wasn’t sure about sizing but based on body measurements provided on the site, I chose a 6 for this tank. That size fit snug across the chest and hips. It pulls just below the chest and across the back. The hem is supposed to be asymmetrical and I did like that part and where it hit. I would have been better off with the size 8, my normal size.
The material is Modal but felt like a thicker silk. I would only use this as a layering piece and I have plenty of silk sleeveless blouses I purchased last year from J Crew that I can already use for layering.
~ Yoshi Sweater
, Jet, Small ~
This sweater comes in three colors – Jet (Black), Charcoal (Gray), Natural. Thinking of the layering pieces I have, I chose Jet. The fit is supposed to be over-sized and cocoon-shaped but I am on the fence with the Small. It’s almost too big and I’m thinking an XS might have been better.
There’s ample room through the arms and body to layer under as much as you want.
With the Small though, it covers the booty very well so it will be great to wear with leggings and Pixie Pants. Also, with the Small, I might accidentally machine wash it, though it says to hand-wash, and could shrink.The wool is really comfortable and soft. It’s not itchy at all.
I returned the Triangle Tank
as I have plenty of long silk sleeveless tops I can layer with instead. What I like with Emerson Fry is that you pay for shipping one time and then returns and exchanges are complimentary. I really like the Yoshi Sweater
and will watch the “Shop Ends
“section to see if I can get the Coal or Natural on sale.
Right now, Emerson Fry has 35% off all shoes with code EFSHOES1015. These are my picks.
Have you shopped Emerson Fry before? They are pricey and they produce domestically and launch small capsules. The $75 off did help make my purchase. I expect the Yoshi Sweater will be a piece I will keep for years and expect the quality to be exceptional. We shall see and I will report back if there are any issues with the sweater.
