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!

I commented previously but will reiterate., You look great! Love those shoes too. sofft brand is a winner in my book too!

Thanks for hosting! You look great in the dress. Simple and chic…love it!
So pretty!!! I love how your necklace and bracelet are from friends!
Emarald green and silk all bound up in one beautifully versatile dress – what a find Patti! I can imagine how cool and comfortable this shape of dress feels and am sorely envious. You look like the cat who got the cream my dear x
What a great find! I love the deep emerald colour, and the pretty necklace really stands out against it 🙂
It’s the perfect little dress, Patti. And I’m so excited that you WEAR WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT! along with all those other great women. You are too cool for me to even link up with. woo-hoo.
Great find-and there’s always room in my closet for a dress like that-love silk.
Congratulations on that dress, looks perfect on you!
Simply pretty! Nice dress!
I love that necklace and whole look!
You are a perfection oh gorgeous lady.
Great scores in NY! I’m so jealous of where you’re going next…
This dress must feel like a million bucks, all that silky softness and the cut is fantastic. You are just missing the linebacker shoulder pads – or NOT! Thanks for the linkup, Patti.
Such a cute dress! Love the idea of pairing it with leggings and boots for the fall. Makes it totally versatile. Also I didn’t know Suzanne makes jewelry!
Love that dress on you Patti. It suits you so well. But I am really in trouble since looking at your fabulous picks here. Love the blue dress…so what am I going to do now??? Have a great day. And thinking of you all in Florida. Lots of love, Sabina
You found some great pieces in NYC then, how great. This dress looks fab on you, so comfy. Love, Kirsten xx
Perfect accessorizing of a pretty dress.
I love the thrift steals you get! If I thrift shop on-line with poshmark, but real thrifting sounds fun. Love the shift style on you, the accessories are unique and perfect with the dress, and I have a few pair of Sofft sandals, they are great!
Fabulous find and that color is lovely on you. It provides a perfect backdrop for your necklace!
What a score that dress was! It’s beautiful and perfect for the warmer months. The color is gorgeous on you Patti!
Gorgeous, versatile pieces. Another fantastic find! it looks great on you.
That dress looks wonderful on you, such a cool and relaxed shape. xxx

I adore All Saints but have never found anything in that store that looks good on me.

Were there big, fat shoulder pads? I still have a couple of things from the ’80s–I just removed the pads.
Classic dress, great color on you!
I don’t know how you do it Patti but you always seem to find THE best pieces thrifting! Is it because you know the best places to go or is it simply your eye for a treasure? Perhaps you should write a book of suggested technique & hot spots to try? I for one would buy it!
Brilliant find Patti, and the necklace compliments it beautifully. Thank you for the link up.
Thank you for your smile and lovely link up.
This is a great dress and love how you styled it!
Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!
Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
This hunter green swing dress is just awesome, Patti.
What a perfect shape for the hotter months—I mean, I love fitted and all, but who wants material against their skin when it’s 90 degrees outside??
You look fabulous!

Pine Green is a good color for you! The dress looks super comfy and chic at the same time. Interesting shoulder detail!
You are a thrifting guru! Amazing finds! And batsleeves, that’s great.
Wow Patti, you cleaned up in Manhattan. Stella McCartney and AllSaints…swoon. I visit the AllSaints store from time to time and it is hard to not walk out with something. The dress you’re wearing is the perfect little dress. Dress it up or down. Perfect addition. Have a great week!
I love this dress Patti, both the colour and cut! It looks amazing on you! Ahh you know the best thrifting spots, what great finds! Hugs, Beata xxx
Really like the dress, Patti! You look great in it. Thanks for the link up!
