So you guys know I didn’t go all the way to Italy without doing a bit of shopping… right?

Of course not!

We spent the last night of our journey in Milan – just a few hours for dinner and a bit of power-shopping.  I’d heard great things about Cos and had been silently sulking for ages that their good aren’t yet  available in the US.  Wondering what all the fuss was about, I wandered in and was immediately smitten.  The vibe was sort of like a more minimalist and sophisticated Zara, with higher quality fabric and construction (but still ultra-reasonable prices).  After trying on a million things in the fitting room and unsuccessfully convincing Eric to let me buy them all, I decided on the skirt I’m wearing above and another dress (which I promise to show you guys soon).

After swooning over Tibi’s silk faille midi skirt (and dying a little inside over the $500+ price tag), I was ever so happy to have found this little number for a fraction of the price.  For this outfit, I tried to go with a work-appropriate styling.  But honestly, I can’t wait to go all out and style it up for a fancy occasion.
