Real v. Steal: Valentino Studded Pumps

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I feel like I have been majorly slacking on my Real v.s. Steal editorials, my apologies. Today's "RvS" was inspired by a segment on the Today Show. They were featuring the Shoe Dazzle version of this shoe, but I instantly knew it was inspired by this Valentino masterpiece.

The Valentino pumps are available at Nordstrom for $895.00 (insert gasp). They have more intricate detail, and I would assume they are really well made. As for the Shoe Dazzle version, they have fewer pyramid studs, but I think they are equally eye catching. Both pairs are also available in nude.

Here is Alexa Chung sporting the nude pair of Valentino studded flats. They are exactly like the heels, but without the pain ;)

I actually think that I prefer the steal more than the originals!

Those are a really close match! I really love the flats version Alexa Chung is wearing. If I had to wear flats, I'd want them to look like that! :) <3
