After seeing this Eileen Fisher dress in a glorious raspberry on Dashielle I was inspired to try it myself. Not quite the same eye popping effect, but I think it looks ok on me.

We have a party to attend Friday and a couple of weddings this summer. I love the cobalt, which is much nicer in person than on the website, but feel the black is more sensible.

My husband wondered why I don't just keep both, but I really doubt they would get enough wear to justify the expense.

I don't think there will be much styling involved other than perhaps hose to help disguise the blemishes on my legs, and deciding on which shoes and bag.

What do you think, do I have a keeper?
