I DID IT! I got me a pair of these babies. Who and why you ask? Let me explain my craziness and addiction to these fabulous darlings. The Valentino rockstud pump made its debut, by the house of Valentino in 2010. This shoes has since become a favourite of every fashionista, celebrity and fashion blogger. You can spot them all over instagram. They come in a variety of colours and they come in flats, small heel, and the highest heel at 4 inches. This shoe has made the Valentino house mucho money!!
I did a write up on these a few months ago…see my past blog post….Splurge Worthy? Well the reason I didn’t purchase them until now is because of the insane price tag. We are talking here about $1,000. I have spent lots of money on shoes but I can’t git the 1 k mark….sorry….I really am not that insane. Replicas of these shoes are easy to find (DSW, shoedazzle), but I wasn’t quite convinced that a replica would even come close to satisfying my craving.
When I was shopping in Montreal a few weeks ago (yes right after spending a small fortune on my louboutins), low and behold what did I see staring at me on a beautiful sunny day? These babies were calling my name. I was at the Rockland mall with my sister on our traditional shopping trip (she takes me shopping every time I visit – she drives, I shop), and I walked in and stumbled upon them at Maska. I quickly asked for my size and didn’t even ask for the price. Of course once they were on my feet, there was absolutely no looking back! While they are replicas, they are Made in Italy, all fine Italian leather and they are not cheap replicas….almost the price of my louboutins!! Whatever…I still didn’t spend that much money on them right? I mean it’s not like they cost me $1,000…okay they were about $400. I adore them and I have to tell you that I have worn them a few times and I have received many compliments on them. This is proof that they are statement making. I mean I know they are, but the fact that folks who have no idea where this design originated from, just tells me the world loves them too! I will be posting lots of pics over the months with great outfits and these shoes! Stay tuned for more.
Isn’t the world a better place when you step into it with great shoes? Stay Fabulous and Wear Great Shoes xo
