You may not be able to tell by my posts thus far, but I am a shoe fanatic. I won’t say how many pairs of shoes I own, but let’s just say you can call me one of the dalmatians. *wink* I mostly wear designer shoes and was dreading my first shoe fashion recommendation post because of it. The shoes that I prefer are of a specific price point, so I kept putting it off as a lot of my readers may not have an interest in that at this time. But recently, my mother has been mentioning my “Shoe of the Day” posts I did when I had a blog ten years ago. So, I decided to go for it and went to one of my favorite websites – NeimanMarcus.com. I scrolled through four pages of new arrivals and decided on my favorite shoes of all time, the Valentino Rockstuds.
I can’t live without my Valentino’s!
At the time of this post, I own four pairs of Valentino Rockstuds: the black, the neon yellow, the ivory, and the tan – all patent leather. I know that I’m obsessed, but I just need two more colors, and I’ll be happy! And I can proudly say that these shoes go with everything, from midi dresses to maxi dresses to jeans to shorts to sweatpants. Of my personal collection, my favorite color to wear is the ivory pair. But the ones displayed in this post are the Valentino Rockstud Raffia Pump and have a woven straw material. The heel measures at 4 inches, and the Rockstud name comes from their allover studded allover calfskin strap. They also feature a allowing for the slingback design.
Valentino Rockstud Raffia Pump
Purchase Price: $995
Available Colors: Natural
Where to Buy: Valentino.com
How I’d Wear It: I’ve worn my Valentino Rockstuds with almost every piece of clothing in my wardrobe. But the style of this shoe is different than the ones that I own, as it is woven. If I were dressing down, I would wear these with a white top and light blue jeans. If I were dressing up, I’d wear them with a white, ivory, or nude-colored dress.
As always, thanks for reading, and be sure to share, like, and comment on this post! Let me know how you’d rock this purse!
