EILEEN FISHER Review and Giveaway


I've been an EILEEN FISHER fan for a looooooong time, but my adoration for this company was cemented when I had the chance to visit their showroom back in February to preview the Fall 2011 line. Seeing the designs, discussing their inspirations, and handling the gorgeous textiles further convinced me that Eileen Fisher garments are worthwhile investment pieces. In fact, the collection made such an impression on me that I stalked and bought this coat, and the company was generous enough to send me this lovely Cable Infinity Wrap.*



The wrap is made from a soft, plush mohair/nylon blend and has lots of give to it. It is INCREDIBLY warm, and made even short-sleeved ensembles wearable in nippy fall temperatures. As you can see, I've styled the wrap as a capelet - a look I completely love - but it can also be worn draped, as an infinity scarf. This accessory would be a great item to add flair and sophistication to any wardrobe.

I'm delighted to have a second Cable Infinity Wrap in this same color to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.
  2. Visit the EILEEN FISHER website to check out their gorgeous designs.
  3. Follow EILEEN FISHER on Twitter or like EILEEN FISHER on Facebook. You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  4. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style the wrap if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  5. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 20, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!

Facebook needs a 'love' not just a 'like' option because I loooove this infinity wrap which I will wear with my brown cashmere turtleneck, jeans and boots--and finish it off with some turquoise bracelets....

Julie Heinrich said...

I don't even own an infinity wrap! Which is amazing considering my huge collection of scarves and wraps. I would love to wear this infinity wrap over my black cashmere J.Crew sweater with skinny jeans tucked into black leather knee boots.

Julie Heinrich said...

Oh, I see that we have to leave our email address in the comments in order to qualify. I have found that leads to way way too much spam in my inbox if I make my email address so public. I will just have to bow out of this contest. Sorry.

tolson said...

I'd wear this wrap with a long sleeve tee, dark jeans and leather boots. The perfect, cozy fall/winter outfit.

ruthr said...

I'd wear it with my outfit today! Burnt orange corduroys with a dark blue shirt. Color, color, color!

Nicole Johns said...

I would love to wear the wrap with jeans and some boots - haven't yet decided on what top. I also have a black jersey dress that would be great with it.

Will and Ben's mom said...

I'd wear it to snaz up a pair of jeans and a black turtleneck!

Beth said...

I love EF! I would style this over a LBD I have with long sleeves-it needs some color to make the dress visually more interesting.

margosita said...

I would wear the wrap over a solid dress with books, probably, to keep warm now that MN winter is surely on the horizon.

I liked Eileen Fisher on Facebook.

My email ends in me.com and begins with margosita. (Gotta get around those spambots!)

Kirsten said...

On a cold day in Texas, I would wear this gorgeous wrap with my charcoal EF cozy viscose sweater, skinny jeans and boots. On a not so cold day, I would wear it with my EF black silk tunic and leggings, and clogs! I love Eileen Fisher and am so happy that they opened a store in Dallas!

I'd wear it as a scarf over a black tee with jeans. It's warm here most of the time.

Amy said...

Wow! I would love to wear this infinity wrap over my black EF silk tank top or elbow sleeve tunic, some skinny jeans and ballet flats. When it gets cold I'd wear it as a neck warmer with my black long down coat! And with the holidays coming up, I'd wear it over my timeless long EF black tank dress (lightweight stretch crepe) and some killer booties! The style possibilities are endless!!!

msmeta said...

I like your look with black, and would probably style it with navy. I have several EF pieces, and I'm always surprised at how well they go with each other.

Mary said...

Looks very cute & warm. I would give it to my mother as a Christmas present if I won it. She would wear it as a scarf. She loves scarves & looks great in them. She would wear it with dark jeggings and a cream long sleeve top.

Lisa said...

I would ask for help in how best to pull it off...here in Houston it rarely gets hot enough for sweaters. I have hot flashes, but i still would love to try this out. It would keep my lovely upper body warm and allow my mid to low regions to stay cool! Prince Charming and I are visiting the area around Christmas and I bet that I would look lovely against the snow! woohoo!

Jill Bierman said...

This is beautiful! I would wear it with my black EF items - it would add a punch of color and goes great with my eyes! Eileen Fisher has a great video on her you tube page about different ways one can tie scarves and wraps which I would loved to try out! before this video I never knew what to do with them, but thought they looked fabulous on others. They make on outfit look so put together! I have been unemployed for some time now and miss shopping at EF. This would be such a great pick-me-up! Cozy and stylish - LOVE!

I'd have to purchase the Stretch Silk Jersey Scoop Neck Long Tunic, because that's what I'd pair it with. Too cute! I'd probably forego jewelry, and wear it with black flats.

I think I'd probably have to start out styling this scarf the way you did, Sal, then try branching out a bit. I'm normally not a scarf person, but I'd take winning this contest as a sign I should reconsider. =0

I love Eileen Fisher! I would wear that wrap as you have (as a capelet) with a gray sheath dress and some boots, or even with jeans and a simple top. LOVE it!

I would try the capelet that you showed. Mostly 'cause I wouldn't have thought of it. It looks so snuggly that I'd wear it with my jammies, too!

Love this wrap! I would wear it with all black, probably skinny jeans and a black long-sleeve top with black ankle wedges. Or else with all white or all grey -- a look this dramatic should go with an otherwise-monochromatic look.

Sarah said...

I love this! I recently lost 25 pounds and two pants sizes and most of my fall wardrobe looks like it belongs to someone else. This wrap would really punch up the items I can still wear, which are mostly unfortunately plan and not flattering. What a beautiful piece!

sarahvschroeder@gmail.com

Chicagolo said...

I would wear this with just about everything, including over my jammies while knitting late into the night. during the day, I think I'd wear it over this vintage salwar that I thrifted and probably over wear.

Thanks for the offer!

I love Eileen Fisher's easy, elegant and casual designs. I've been wanting to add a bit of yellow to my wardrobe this fall, so this wrap would be perfect! I would wear it as a scarf/hood on a cold day with my olive green pea coat and skinny jeans. Or, for high contrast, with something turquoise blue.

Kirsten Cowan, L.Ac said...

That colour is gorgeous! Would be perfect for keeping the all season air conditioning chill of my neck at the office :)

I have knitted myself many infinity wraps, but none are in this lovely color or yarn weight. I live in Minnesota and would wear my infinity wrap with everything, but particularly with a charcoal turtleneck, black pants or jeans, and a pair of antique-finish wing-tip granny boots.

justginster said...

Liked them on Facebook! I think this is something I would keep at the office to wear with EVERYTHING, for those days when the heat's not turned up enough or the A/C's on way too high...it would be a great neckwarmer when I'm already bundled up, or something to pull down over my arms when I'm not wearing enough. Thanks for the opportunity!

Since 75 percent of my wardrobe is black or gray, I would use the infinity wrap as a punch of color, especially on a gray winter day in San Francisco.
