Valentino Love

The Valentino Rockstud collection is one of those collections that is on the verge of being tacky, but is so well executed that it’s just purely fabulous. I have been eyeballing these rockstud slingbacks and this tote for so long, and I can finally call myself a proud owner. Even an avid Zara and J.Crew shopper can splurge sometimes, but here’s the best part: they were on sale…bigtime sale! I basically got a two-fer. So, if you are one of my Houston readers, or if you have a Valentino store in your city, they are having a hush-hush sale starting tomorrow for the public. Here’s a little shopping hint: try not to pick out anything that is going to be discontinued next season (a little birdie at Tootsies told me the bow collection is not coming back, but I don’t know if that’s true).

I chose the Rockstud shoes and handbag, because Valentino is continuing this collection into the Fall and Winter, so it won’t go out of style. Also the taupe color is perfect year round. I can’t wait to wear them! (but not together…that’s too much stud for me).

Aren’t they beautiful? What is your favorite Valentino collection?

And while we are on the topic of Valentino, these are my absolute favorite flip-flops for summer.
