Ok, by now, Valentino Rockstud accessories have been around for a few seasons, and they have been seen on fashionistas around the world and even copied (more or less successfully and more or less intelligently..) so this is hardly a "Wow look what I found" post... Rather, the surprise is that I waited until Spring 2013 to get my first pair of Rockstud slingbacks. How I could resist so long, I don't know... Here they are now in my staircase, and I'm so thrilled at the idea of wearing them soon!
There is so much about these shoes which I love: the studded straps are super fierce, adding a sense of fun and youth to what could otherwise be a pair of ladylike (dare I say it, slightly boring) heels. I adore the kitten heels, which are elegant and practical to walk in.
So, why did I hesitate so long? First, amongst the many colour combinations that these shoes have been made in, it's the first time I come across the nappa nude with pink straps mix. I think this matt combo is easier to mix in with my existing wardrobe (very important!) and I think it can work for both Summer and Winter looks. And I also thought long and hard before ordering these for a simple reason: all my life, I've heard and read that ankle straps are not for shorter-legged creatures like me. Well, I'm ready to break this rule, let's see what you think about it when I do!
