Valentino

We’ve already written multiple times about the items of Valentino‘s famed “Rockstud“-family and as you might remember, up until now I loved every single bag or shoe that came out with the unmistakably studded silhouette. However, when Valentino brought out a “kitten heel” version of their iconic Rockstud high heels, I wasn’t too impressed at first. Sure, I did love them from the front, but the side view? Not so much. Kitten heels just aren’t my cup of tea and probably will never be, but seeing them on the gorgeous bloggers and celebs below, at least I realized that there are women who can get away with wearing kitten heels (skinny girls with beautiful long legs specifically). What still kept me cringing about these kitten heels though is the hefty price tag of $995!

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $945 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.

Listen up, ladies, we have another Valentino shoe post here and for once it’s not about one from the Rockstud family. After doing like a hundred different Rockstud shoe styles, Valentino finally decided to move on to a softer direction. No studs and no pointy toes anymore, instead followed floral prints and round almond toes. Valentino’s “Bo-y-ch” striped colorblock booties starkly contrast to Valentino’s usual romantic aesthetic. They’re bold and extravagant rather than feminine and pretty and I totally sense a 70s vibe here. It’s a statement boot I would’ve expected from Chloé, but from Valentino? Unusual, admittedly, but I like to be surprised once in a while. Plus, these funky boots totally remind me of those colorful socks probably everyone of us has been gifted in their life at least once by one of their grandmas, aunts or other relatives. Except these cost a hefty $1.375. That would be quite an expensive christmas present!

ASOS “End It On This” Ankle Boots

If you love Valentino’s new funky boots yet can’t afford them, then how about these Valentino Bo-y-ch inspired striped booties I found at ASOS here? They’re obviously not an identical match, but the inspiration is clearly visible I think. And to be totally honest with you, I kind of prefer ASOS’ version because the color selection seems more fitting for Fall and I think the colors here harmonize better than on the real deal Valentinos. What do you prefer? Real or steal deal?

Valentino‘s “Rockstud” collection has not only been exhibited in exquisite footwear but also in beautiful and edgy handbags such as this one pictured here. It is undeniable that the staple studs in part make this flap clutch bag, in addition to the chic silhouette. Priced at a mere $1.695, it is pretty much inaccessible to everyone though, thus we have a great steal below. I have to say that Fan Bingbing’s all-red ensemble exudes luxury with a hint of romanticism and this red Valentino clutch really brings every aspect of her outfit together flawlessly.

It has a very similar design, featuring stud embellishments on the outer border of this “BCRSBDY” Studded Clutch. The only difference between the Valentino original and its more budget-friendly counterpart is that the mini handle in the middle doesn’t have any sort of ornamentation, but that is a minimal detail. This clutch also has a long strap for versatile wearing abilities. Additionally, be sure to use the promo code above for maximum savings!

Valentino‘s shoe line from the “Rockstud” collection is probably the most popular here on this blog. And even though the Rockstud shoes have been going strong in the fashion community for a couple of years, there seems no sign of declining popularity with these pyramid studded, strappy Valentino shoes. We’ve written about quite a few shoe styles from the “Rockstud” family already and today we’re finally featuring the caged t-strap ballet flats. For a flat, this shoe is about as dressy as it gets; the luxe patent leather juxtaposed the shiny studded straps = perfection! But before you fall hopelessly in love, take a deep breath and look at the price tag: $975! And that’s the lower price limit for this type of Rockstud style. Other variations of the caged flat go as far up as $1.095! Now that’s a lot of money.

Luckily, there are some fantastic and affordable alternatives out there for all of us Valentino-loving fashionistas on a budget. Let’s start with my current favorite Valentino steal find which is the “Delight” by Diavolina, a spot-on Rockstud flat dupe which comes in either black or nude patent. Unfortunately, at $189.95 AUD, it’s a pricey Valentino look-alike and also rather hard to get hold of outside of Australia, but nonetheless, it’s about 80% cheaper than the real deal, so I’d still consider this to be a great steal find if you’re willing to invest in a high-quality Valentino alternative.
