High Fashion Friday: Valentino Couture Dotted Bead-Collar Blouse

Fridays are for not just fashion, high fashion!

Today's High Fashion Friday is celebrating this beautiful and interesting Couture Dotted Bead-Collar Blouse from Valentino and available at Neiman Marcus. Neiman Marcus's website does a terrific job describing this piece...

"Valentino pulls out all the stops with this ultra-feminine top. In a departure from the fashion house's beloved bows and lace, the new design duo backs the sheer chiffon with jersey for a modern feel. Tuck this top into a black skirt for a smart look."

The Online Shopper is in love with the cut of the top, the sheer overlay with a diminutive dotted pattern and the seemingly comfy jersey under-layer.  If you zoom into the top on Neiman's website you will not the gorgeous little pearl detailing on the colar.  This looks wonderful as pictured with a high wasted pair of black trousers, but it would look equally beautiful with a either a black pencil skirt or full black skirt (perhaps silk for evening). 

At a *ah-hem,* whopping, $1090.00, if you cannot afford this lovely, high fashion piece, may it at least inspire a similar look in your own wardrobe!
