This particular day, I woke up, opened the doors to my closet and my eyes went straight to all the neutrals. Rare during the summer months, but it happens. Flip, flip, flip, BAM! I almost forgot I had this dress. Club Monaco (CM) sheath dress, Spring 2012 Collection.

I remember this shopping excursion like it was yesterday. A sunny and warm Saturday, mom comes in from Long Island, brunch at Petite Abeille, stroll over to the Flatiron District and straight into CM. The minute I walked in the store and laid my eyes on it, I just had to have it. CM does this to me every time! Right when you enter, they have 3 to 4 mannequins in the center of the floor, and without a doubt, always showcasing the best they have to offer. The floor design team deserves “The Slow Clap“.

The sheath dress can be found at any and every retailer. What makes CM dresses different is the fine details and elements of visual interest they use. The ribbon inlay at the waist and outlining the exposed back zipper is what takes this dress to the next level.
