EILEEN’S GO TO’S
A boxy simple top… depends on the weather, could be linen or cashmere and straight cropped pants. These are actually the first two styles we started with.
Do you uniform dress? If so, what is your go to weekday outfit if you’re running to a casting or audition? Weekend? Night out?
Dressing is best and simplest when you have a system. Having a variety of shapes, colors and fabrics in pants and tops that interchange well with each other. This concept is an integral part of the brand – our 8-piece System is intended to do just that. Make it easy for women to get dressed every day.
Do you wear a lot of vintage? Favorite spot to buy vintage?
My vintage pieces are a pair of silk cropped pants and my boiled wool kimono coat. We actually often relaunch old styles because they are still great.
What do you do with closet items you have grown tired of?
I give them to our recycle program Renew so that others can enjoy them.
What is one piece every woman should own?
A simple black dress, there are so many ways to wear it.
