The Rockstud Obsession

So. I don’t even know how it happened. I was browsing Sea of Shoes, when I stumbled across the Valentino Rockstud heel.

Now, if these shoes were broken down into their constituent parts? I am not a fan of kitten heels, I dislike slingbacks with something of a passion and pointed toes? Not my thing. At all. Give me a nice rounded almond toe any day.

And yet. Put them all together and somehow…I am smitten! I have no idea how this happened.

No idea.

Then I found the flat, black version of the shoe and fell in love just a little bit deeper. I put together an outfit to showcase these gorgeous shoes and another trend I’m starting to see filter through – the Return of the Boyfriend Jean. About time the ubiquitous skinny had a contender for style crown.

I’m thinking of tracking down some similar flats on Asos and studding them up manually to achieve a budget-friendly nod to the shoe, now entering into cult fashion status. What do you reckon?
