If I buy these pants, will my ovaries stop functioning?

Linen tapered pants, $188.

I love these pants in both the White and the Smoke.
But I've never purchased Eileen Fisher before,
and I'm afraid I'll be thrown into early menopause.

Made me laugh out loud because I knew exactly what you were talking about. I think this every time the Soft Surroundings catalog shows up in my mail? How did I get on this list?

I'm missing the point. Are you suggesting that only older women buy Eileen Fisher? No one hip wears linen? Or is it about breaking the hum drum hysteria for leggings? Either way, I'm sure your ovaries will be fine. They might even welcome a little less pressure. Sardonic muse in residence this morning.

Sami Pat - About a year ago, The Cut had an excellent post about a younger person's love for all things Eileen:

Once again, you've read my mind! Every time a catalog shows up in my mailbox with Eileen Fisher items in it I think, "Am I ready to go this route yet?"

I am sure it takes more EF than one pair of pants and you might need a "fun" jacket from Chico's to tip the scale on aging.

You are so funny.

Chico's - ha love it. "Forever 61"

I think these catalogs all have an affiliation with the AARP -- they relentlessly track you down the minute you turn 50.

Really?! A little sarcasm here and there is amusing, but this post and the ensuing comments remind me of bitchy high schoolers. Your blog just earned a trip straight off my favorites list.

Hannah - You must be unfamiliar with what I do here.

Hannah said...

Raina, I've enjoyed what you do here and I think I get it! And I got what your point was on this post and chuckled- but the comments just seemed to go in a really unbecoming direction - away from what I've admired here. I usually don't comment, but it was just a gut reaction.

Roville said...

Hannah, calm down to a panic.

Raina, I'll read your blog more often. And follow the comments. Ha-ha-lerious! And I quite like EF.
