I've been coveting the Valentino rockstud City sandals for eons, but those shoes never seem to go on sale. But, the other week, I got a little surprise.
wearing: Equipment striped cotton blouse (similar, on sale here), True Religion Joey shorts (on sale here), Talbots reversible belt (love this alternative here and similar high-end), Hermes Clic Clac bracelets, Chanel Medallion bag, BCBGeneration studded sandals (dupe of the gorgeous Valentino Rockstud City sandals. Since the Valentino's are pricey, here's another beautiful super-affordable sandal that I'm getting for summer)
One of my very very good friends found a dupe of the Valentino City sandals in my size at a local DSW. She promptly got them for me! I am truly blessed.
The only unfortunate thing is that I haven't been able to find them, online or in-stores. They aren't as PERFECT as the Valentino City sandals, but these shoes also retailed less than $100, so they are truly amazing!
Shoes and bags really make a difference. Swap out the Chanel medallion handbag and the block-heeled studded sandals, and this outfit would be entirely different.
Pretty shoes and a luxurious bag really make dressing so easy. They make the most classic and basic outfits POP!
