We are trying to post as much of the large Yves Saint Laurent collection we purchased as quickly as we can and a few Haute Couture gowns will be added in the next day, too. But this Chantilly lace evening blouse is such a quintessential piece in a stylish woman's wardrobe. The evening blouse is always desirable and one in delicate Chantilly lace with a ruffle collar and satin ties can be worn in a myriad of ways. Of course, a Le Smoking would be ideal over this sensual blouse, as would a simple fish-tail shaped evening skirt of wool crepe. One might dress this down with a pair of L'wren Scott skinny black jeans, too. Conversely, it's just as easy to pump up the glamour with a taffeta skirt with layers and voluminous ruffles. We also love this blouse under a very masculine grey pinstripe suit. The touch of femininity is a great juxtaposition against grey flannel, for example. So many possibilities.
