Reaching For Valentino-Red Valentino Spring 2011 Collection

For me, Valentino has always been one of the unreachables--a red carpet haute couture house that hovers above the reach of mere mortals. However, the launch of the Red Valentino line has enabled the descent of Valentino into the realm of civilian fashionistas like myself.

I love Red Valentino's Spring 2011 Collection. The pieces take the notion of youthful elegance to a Valentino level. Here are some of my favorites.

Prices are in the $300-$1,000 range.
