A Very Valentino Shoe Whore

Maybe it is my Italian roots, maybe it is my champagne taste on a beer budget. Either way Mr. Valentino has a very special place in my heart.

Thanks to some savvy shopping I am lucky enough to own 2 pairs of Valentino shoes: The Tango Leather Pump + The Rockstud Ballerina Flat.  I am proud to say that I did not purchase either pair full price + have nearly worn both to death due to their ability to jazz up every look. Are you in the market for a new pair of Valentino kicks, but on a mega-budget like me? Check out the latest styles from Valentino here on Lyst. They have taken the time to pick the latest styles + even alert you when things go on sale!

The Tango Leather Pumps have taken me all around town! Paired with a white dress for San Jose fashion week, the red pumps helped me take a white dress (after labor day) into fall. Styled with denim shorts + a striped tee the pumps took my summer day look into night on the Embarcadero. The last look is a bit of a blast from the past from a coffee date in North Beach. A black poncho, printed pants + red pumps for the final POP of color.

Selecting just 3 looks featuring The Rockstud Ballerina Flat was not easy. Do I really wear these that much? The first is from a recent evening in the park. Styled with my printed trench I was ready for a walk in the park. The second look is a bit more edgy with a vegan leather skirt + ruffled blouse. The last is yet another blast from the past! Am I channeling Carry Bradshaw or what?

Clearly I have had a ton of fun styling these kicks. Shop the latest + greatest from Mr. Valentino here + don’t forget to take advantage of the sale alerts too!

  1. I love me some Valentino shoes (looking at them I mean because I don’t own a pair) thanks for the tip on Lyst! I’ll have to check it out now!

  2. I’ve been debating purchasing a pair of Valentino Courts for YEARS now, still haven’t pulled the trigger because 1. they are 900+, and 2. my husband thinks i’m crazy for even wanting to spend that much on shoes. Ah…but I think I still need them :/
