By now you have probably seen at least one of your favorite style bloggers rocking the Valentino RockStud Kitten Heel. I had my eyes on this designer staple for a while and finally purchased them in Rome (less expensive in Italy). I couldn’t help myself, this shoe is sexy, comfortable, and the iconic metal hardware is gorgeous.
One thing that I strongly believe in is choosing wisely on the pieces I’m going to invest my money on. Before I make a big purchase I ask myself, do I love this piece? Can I wear with anything in my closet? Will it fit my lifestyle? I think it’s important to ask yourself these questions, why spend money on a pair of shoes that will be collecting dust in your closet.
Usually my money goes to a handbag or a nice pair of heels, in this case I went with the Valentino Rockstud Kitten Heel. This iconic shoe is absolutely gorgeous, can be styled with denim shorts or a cocktail dress, and can easily transition from the office to dinner with friends.
If you love this style but not the price tag, I have attached a couple of options that are spot-on, affordable (prices rage from $60-$110), and are available in a variety of colors.
