Get Luxe for Less

When I first saw the Valentino Rockstud shoes earlier this year, I became a bit obsessed. It was the first time in my life I had considered spending $1000 on a pair of shoes. I drooled all over them at Bergdorf Goodman, but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on a pair of shoes. As a fashion stylist, I’m on my feet all day and dragging around bags full of clothes. I wouldn’t get the chance to wear the Valentinos often enough to be worth the price. I was very happy when I came across a pair that are similar but almost $1000 less! I love it when I get luxe for less!

Do you think the Valentinos are worth $1000 more? Or do you get luxe for less with the Sole Society pumps?

  1. I like the less expensive shoes. I think they give the same look, without being quite as “edgy”. Because of this, they will probably last longer in your wardrobe. I’m like you–I look and look and then try to replicate for less money. I clip looks I like and then see what I have that comes close. Only then will I shop for more.
