Valentino lace platform pumps

Lace has never been my favourite fabric, on either clothes or shoes, but I think I could be persuaded by these Valentino platforms, which are £520 at Net-a-Porter. These use two different types of lace  – one on the platform and one on the uppers – and although the 1.5″ sole is as chunky as it gets without veering wildly into “stripper” territory, the shoes still retain an elegant shape, and a ladylike look. Subtly sexy for evening, just make sure you look out for that 5.5″ heel!


  • I was immediately drawn to these shoes, however,with a closer look, i find that i do not like the lace (a trend that i fell in love with hastily) i find that it isn’t very “pretty”, i’m not fond of the contrast between the two designs on the platform and uppers and i will assume that these shoes would be incredibly hard to walk in!
