My favorite eBay seller has for sale an Eileen Fisher waterproof trench in Primrose color that I have been looking at off and on. I have included pictures of both the stock photos as well as the real photos of the trench up for sale. It is new with tags and IMHO, a very reasonable price.
I like the style in that you can wear the neckline open or fully done up
depending on the weather, that it's 100% water and wind proof, and I adore the back gather which helps to give me shape. My only pause is the color - although the primrose works well with my hair and skin coloring, I'm wondering about versatility. That having been said, my only other coat for fall and spring (before getting into the heavier winter coats) is my navy London Fog which is a completely different style.
The EF jacket in question is a Petite Large. I wear both medium and large in EF depending on the item and I think the petite large would allow layering of my various blazers, etc.
What do you think of this color and style for me?
P.S. Yes, I am beginning to think of fall. Fall/winter are my dominant seasons and I'm learning to buy a bit at a time for it to ease the "all at once" budget pain.
