I know, I’m showing you ANOTHER pair of Valentino bow pumps. I do that a lot. I’m sorry.
Actually, you know what? I’m not really sorry. Because when I was in the US this June, I spent rather a lot of time trying on Valentino bow pumps. Specifically these ones:
I’m in love with these shoes. Seriously, if I were to win the lottery, they’re the very first thing I’d buy. In every colour. And in every shape – the also come in a d’orsay style, for instance, and I’d take those too. And actually, you’re probably expecting me to say I like the red best, but it was the black version that really won my heart. They’re so much nicer in person, and, well, they’re just show-stoppers.
Of course, the peep toe wouldn’t be all that practical for the coming winter, and that’s where the pale pink pumps above come into play. This is a slightly different style, and, as you can see, they come with a triple-layered bow rather than a double one. It’s very extravagant, and very attention-grabbing, and it’s the kind of bow that will divide opinion: for instance, I tried on a couple of versions of this shoe, too, and while Shoepermum and I were ALL OVER THEM, Shoeperman and Shoeperdad were pretty aghast by that bow. Maybe it’s a male/female thing, who knows.
If I owned these shoes, I would wear them every day. I would love and cherish them, and at night I would polish them with a silk rag, and I would tuck them up in bed, and maybe give them a little kiss.
OK, I wouldn’t. But I do like them (Er, you guessed that, didn’t you?), and if you like them too, and have a little more money than I do, you can click here to buy them for $775. Treat them well!
