A Valentine Valentino Reveal!


Woke up to a GORGEOUS red (for Valentines tehehe :) box sitting on our hotel room loveseat! 


EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


::CLAP CLAP::

I don't have anything Valentino in my closet so I was so excited when I was opening this box. hahahaha.  Honestly I was pretty excited just by the box I mean seriously how gorgeous is this red box?!  

The Hubs was like "yah maybe I'll use the box for our receipts this year that way it'll be easier to locate them when we do our taxes next year" 

uhhhhhhhhhhhhh whaaaat?! 

BAHAHAHAHAHA.


Pointy Toes!!


Studs!


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! 

Valentino Rockstud slingbacks!


I've always wanted nude pumps but I don't have any in my shoe closet because I always get sidetracked on whatever is the newest pretty and bright color of the season hahahaha as many of you know my penchant for very bright in your face shoes hahah.


So I'm super psyched the Hubs handpicked these shoes for me he said I needed some nude classical shoes in my collection.  And he's so right muhahahaha!  They're nude and classic but I think they have a bit of edge to them with the studs.  I'm in love!!! hehehehe.


The nude is almost like a nude taupe color which is so gorgeous in real life.  They are made out of patent leather.  They stand 4 and a 1/4 high.


These shoes are definitely a strong departure from my usual type of shoes.  No platform, pointy toes, and a very neutral color.  Hahaha. Totally different from anything and I mean ANYTHING in my closet but I love them!


The Hubs purchased them in my normal shoe size EU 37 which is an US 7 but most of my shoes are almond or rounded toe shaped and since these were pointed they were too tight so I took them back to the store and exchanged them for a 37.5 which fit perfectly :)!  

So size up if you have wider feet like I do!


AHAHAHA sad... my poor attempt at covering up the generic and slightly horrible corporate hotel feel with my fur babies play blanket. 


Obsessed since I don't have anything like this in my closet they're so ladylike hahaha. 

They are surprisingly comfortable too considering they are pointy toed and don't have a platform.


I'm envisioning so many outfits with these babies!  

Lace, leather and peplum!! hehehehe!

 So excited I can't wait to wear these!

Thanks so much booboo!  I heart them so much :)!

  18. When I saw the pictures in the beginning before I scroll down to the actual reveal of the shoes, I was thinking it must be the rockstuds! Haha, I was right! Omg....I've been eyeing the exact same pair for awhile but they never have my size!!! And whenever they do, they are snatched right away!

    Your husband has great taste! The shoes will go with any outfit!!

  31. Ack. They are beautiful! But I bought some Valentino pumps last season - same blush patent leather, height, and pointed toe (but a classic pump with rockstuds down the back of the heel). They are seriously gorgeous shoes, and feel comfy at first. But...I don't think I've ever had a pair of shoes on my feet that hurt so badly! I've only worn them twice, and this last time (and I do mean *last* time), I wore them to work, which was ok...then at lunch time, I had to go to another building. Maybe, a half mile walk. On the way back, I went barefoot because I couldn't stand it. For several days, I felt huge amounts of pain on both of my second toes. Any time there was ANY kind of pressure (and I'm talking the sheets on my bed, as I lay there), I felt excruciating pain. I got a pedicure a few days later (which was super fun), and while everything looked normal...10 days later when they removed the polish, the nails there were completely black.

    All that to say - be careful, and maybe don't walk too far in these babies!

  37. your feet look so tiny~
    So jealous that your hubs bought you fab shoes! My bf won't buy me shoes cause he heard from someone that if you buy your significant other shoes, they run away from you ... but i guess it doesn't apply for married couples :)

  38. NOoooooooooo! How could your lovely hubby buy you shoes again? My hubby would ban me from reading your blog. Hahahaha... I actually like how the studs look dainty when seen from afar even though they are supposed to be edgey.

    Psst... Ask your hubby get you a classic nude shoes. These don't count as classic. Another reason for him to buy shoes for you!
