I found some thrifting treasures on my most recent trip to Manhattan. A cozy Stella McCartney sweater, a pair of AllSaints trousers (similar), a basic black COS dress (sim), and this 80’s revival silk dress by Comptoir des Cotonniers.
Always room in my closet for a sleek shift dress:

Although the brand is known for its cottons, this is a lovely medium weight silk. I’ve already washed it by hand and shook it out to dry. I love the shoulder details and the easy raglan sleeves. And of course, the deep emerald color – one of my favorites. I added a necklace crafted by artist Suzanne Carillo, a vintage bracelet from Citizen Rosebud, and some years-old Sofft suede wedges (sim). I’ll add leggings in the Fall, and make the dress more casual with rugged boots. Score!
