It only took two tries (and…um…6 months) to find the replacement for my beloved Eileen Fisher silk blouse. EF stopped making my original top, and the somewhat similar version they were selling sold out in my size before I got a chance to try it.

I found my replacement at LilySilk. It’s a bit shorter than the tunic length of the piece it’s replacing and it has a full collar instead of the stand collar, but the fit and material are both similar. Do I love it as much as the EF? No. But it’s good enough and won’t be neglected.

I normally wouldn’t wear this top with these particular pants unless I was planning to throw a long topper over the top, and that’s exactly what I plan to do if I go out. Like its predecessor, I plan to wear this piece both on its own with jeans for a FFBO, as well as to create a column of black to go under a topper on cooler days.

Photos 1 and 2 are the new LilySilk top. Photo 3 is the old EF one, which I wore until it got holes in the elbows. RIP at 73 wears.
