Valentino Rockstud flats, $595
I’m a big fan of Valentino’s ‘Rockstud’ heels, which have been one of the brands big hits of recent years, and I’m almost as enamoured with the flat version, shown above.
These combine a very delicate, pastel coloured upper with a studded trim to give the look a bit of added edge. This is something Valentino does so well, and these are one of the very few pairs of flat shoes that have the power to make me drool. Unfortunately for me, $595 is a whole lot more than I’d pay for even the prettiest pair of flats, so I’ll have to content myself with simply dreaming about how fabulous they’d look with jeans or sundresses when spring rolls around. If you’d like to go ahead and buy them, meanwhile, you’ll find them at Neiman Marcus.
