Woo-Hoo, it’s Friday and welcome to my discussion of color interpretation: Eileen Fisher’s cassis.
This week I have been showing you the colors in my closet that work for my new Autumn Color palette, particularly items I decided to keep.
I ended up ordering a Rosewood Sweater suggested by one of you, which is the darker version of rosewood. I cannot wait to see it…it is on online exclusive color at Ann Taylor
But, completely different from the rosewood I was searching!!
This Eileen Fisher jacket, which I decided to hang on to, is another interesting color to me: Cassis.
I see a color that is close to the Chestnut color in my autumn palette….Leigh Ann sees purple…another friend sees brown…and a Dillard’s associate insists that it is burgundy!!
If you just search, WHAT COLOR IS CASSIS, you are told that it is a darker greyish purple.
Pretty great color that it can accomplish all of that! I do love the jacket…it is lightweight and longer and I think fits my palette whether it has its own box or not. I can do a lot with it for fall.
MY ROMANTIC STYLE
I chose to go with the romantic side of my new bohemian/romantic style when putting a look together for this jacket.
The ecru lace top is from Ralph Lauren and I found it recently at a consignment shop. It is sheer, but perfect for under a jacket. The shoes are past Halogen flats from Nordstrom, and the jewelry was made a local designer, Susan Butler.
She is an amazing talent…and the link goes to her Amazon shop….featuring her shop where she blows her own glass beads.
I think the pearls and leather work well for a denim style. These are my bootcut jeans from Chico’s.
Here are some additional Eileen Fisher pieces in Cassis for you to see and draw your own interpretation of the color…..
Simple, affordable lace tops are almost as elusive as some colors are…you can see here that I found Ralph Lauren in places from Walmart to Saks Fifth Avenue!
I have rarely worn much lace, but styling it under a jacket like this does work for me and I warmed up to it quickly.
So tell me, ladies…what color do you see when you look at Cassis and do you understand why I kept this jacket?? Would love to hear from you…thanks for being here…and always…
KEEP SMILING!! (I know it is Friday the 13th, but I choose to believe it is going to be a great day!)
