Visible Monday #166: Simple Knits For The Win

IMG_1147 copy

Welcome to Visible Monday #166. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

I like easy dresses and simple knits – not too much structure and no grabbing my middle, pls. This navy knit dress by Eileen Fisher (sim) was $4 at the thrift, so I had to have it, didn’t I? EF is a high quality, made in America brand that has a minimal aesthetic I love. I’d prefer the hem 2″ longer, but this works. I like a dress to be versatile too – and this one adapts to accessories and changing seasons like a charm.

The floral scarf below is courtesy of J. Jill – their Compassion Scarf. Fifty percent of proceeds from sales of the scarf directly support organizations that help disadvantaged and homeless women. The purple rugged vest (sim) is c/o Diane Gilman – check out her designs here. She’s a 60+ designer who creates  contemporary pieces at good prices. Thrifted bib necklace (sim) and J. Crew leather boots (sim) finish it off. In a couple of weeks, weather gods permitting,  I’ll add tights and a blazer or long cardigan.

  13. You always look particularly lovely in blue, Patti, and this dress is no exception! Love the pretty floral scarf too. As ever, you are the hostess with the mostest! xxx

  14. Wow, you really scored…4 bucks! You can’t beat that. It looks super cool with the sleeveless denim jacket and scarf. We’re sporting similar looks today 🙂

  15. Patti, first of all thank you for the linking up party once again, such a great intro to new friends for me. I love your waistcoat/vest today, but I covet your boots – they look as if they are made of beautiful leather – are they soft and comfortable? You always look sleek and elegant.

  16. Love the vest! I really like Diane Gilman and have ordered a few pair of jeans from her line, but ugh, they never quite fit this pear shaped gal and so I always have to return.

    Monica.

  17. Wow that scarf could be a dress in itself. You’re the one that got me back into scarves again, Patti. Thanks!

  18. You actually found an EF dress in a thrift shop? Well, yes of course you had to take it home with you. Lucky, lucky, you. And it is so stylish, but then it’s an (ef). I like how you styled it with the vest but I’m a fan of just leaving it plain with the beautiful scarf.

  19. Patti, I just love your gorgeous scarf and the cause it’s connected to. Pairing it with that chic, steal of a dress works perfectly! What a lucky find! Thank you for all of your style inspiration over these many weeks and for hosting this fun linkup! Have a wonderful holiday! xox-M

  20. Great outfit! I love to take a unstructured top and give it just a bit of structure with a vest, jacket, sweater or even a shirt. You have on a perfect Thanksgiving outfit! Have a great holiday! Peace! Cheryl

  21. A super-cool hip look, love the cropped waistcoat and the shorter dress. It’s thermals and sheepskins at dawn here, so cold and icy. That Goan beach gets more appealing by the day. xxx

  22. What a lucky buy – Eileen Fisher at the thrift store! Such a versatile dress, too. I love it with that scarf, and you can feel good wearing it.

  23. I buy Eileen Fisher in thrift shops too, if I can find it. The quality is wonderful. Usually I only find larger sizes, but I don’t care about the fit. The dress you’re wearing fits and looks wonderful. Thanks for the party and the corn pudding!

  24. I just like the helpful information you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.

    I’m quite certain I will be told many new stuff right here!
    Best of luck for the following!

  25. What a score! You can really pull off this look and that scarf.

    I like companies that give back.

    Blue is so wonderful on you with your hair.

    I’m not a fan of EF clothes but you really work it.

    bisous
    Suzanne

  26. It’s a beautiful scarf, and the whole outfit looks fun and casual and chic. And it’s always good if a clothing company donates something to charity and supports a good cause. It’s very difficult to stick to ‘ethical’ fashion, as we don’t really have much information on the production chain in most cases. However, I try to avoid certain fast fashion brands. I mean, if a brand new t-shirt costs next to nothing, how much (or little) do the factory workers make…
