Fantasy Buy of the Week: Celine ribbon trim top

Celine_ribbon_top Let us just start this post by stating up front that The Fashion Police would never pay £550/$1000 for a top. Never. In fact, it makes us feel faint just thinking about that – pass the smelling salts, would ya?

With that said, this is a fantasy buy, with “fantasy” being the operative word, and this little purple top by Celine is pretty cute, in a simple-but-stylish kinda way. We love the ribbon trim around the neckline, which is, of course, the stand-out detail of this, and we agree with Net-a-Porter’s assessment that it would look good with jeans or a pair of tailored black pants.

Just not £500 worth of “good”, obviously.

    I love this, despite that it’s also a fantasy buy for me. I love how it’s sleeveless, so you could pair it with a cardigan and not have thick, lumpy arms.

    The color is very nice, but I don’t think there’s any clothing item I’d pay £550!

    Great top..
    Bad, bad price!..
    Does it come with the promise of a good life, health insurrance and a signed picture of Mr. Obama? haha..
    Just another case of overprizing because it’s been blessed with a “Celine” tag on it
