Lady Luxe: As you’re wondering what you’re going to wear to a charity lunch, your 25 year old daughter walks into your bedroom asking for your Valerie blouse. You realize that’s the perfect blouse to wear today so no, she can't borrow it but you thank her for the suggestion. The Valerie is so easy to style as its classic but with a twist. You pair it with your favourite black pants and roll the hem to make it look more casual, you grab your white sneakers and black clutch and you’re ready to go. 

Trendsetter: Finding a classic shirt that compliments everything that is worn with it is hard to find. The Valerie is the perfect blouse that does it all. This blouse would be perfect for an evening dinner with the girls styling by half tucking the shirt in a pair of black jeans and heels. Making the outfit look chic but effortless.
