Valentino Noir Rockstud Pumps

Apparently I've been on a bit of a designer shoe kick lately (hello beloved Alexander Wang oxfords which I'm sure you've noticed have been featured in many of my outfit posts since I got them -- I have been wearing them almost everyday). Nonetheless, I will admit that this latest pair ended up being a somewhat unexpected splurge.

I had decided that I wanted an edgy pair of heels but really had no concept of what those would end up being. When I happened upon these Valentino Rockstud Noir Pumps at Holt Renfrew, I decided to give them a try... and they ended up coming home with me, whoops!

I know that Rockstuds have been majorly overdone in the blogosphere and to be honest, I was never really interested in them before. However, once I tried them on, I finally understood why they're so popular. For a 4+ inch heel, they are surprisingly comfortable. And this is coming from a girl who almost never wears heels so that's got to count for something, right?


  1. Yessss welcome to the dark side!! I'm OBSESSED with my Rockstud Noirs and I want another pair, but ugh they're like $1000 now (I got mine for around $800). Such sad :(

    1. Ahhh, and that was only a few years ago, wasn't it? It's so annoying how brands keep jacking up their prices!

  2. Congrats on a great purchase. Sometimes, you just don't need an explanation!

  3. AMAZING!!

  4. The color is so pretty! Looking forward to the outfit posts ;)

  5. Gorgeous shoes - they actually look amazing! <3

    I have a new outfit up on the blog, would love to know your thoughts:
