This week, I had a decision to make; did I pay my rent, or buy a pair of Valentino Rockstuds?
If you’ve not cottoned on by now, I took the plunge and finally (finally) got my hands on a pair of iconic Rockstud heels. Much like the Hermes Birkin, Chanel 2.55 and YSL Tributes, I class these heels as utterly iconic; they’ve been on my list-of-things-to-buy for ages, so it was a momentous occasion when they eventually became mine.

As these shoes are so beautiful, they deserved a blog post all on their own. I opted for the mid-heel, rather than the flat or stiletto; part of me does feel buying a kitten heel betrays all fashion rules I live by, but I think the lower height is offset by the edgy studding and pointed toe. (Plus, being able to actually walk in them massively improves the cost-per-wear ratio.)
They’re super comfy, which is a massive relief, and they look amazing with jeans, skirts, and dresses; if you’re dithering about parting with the dosh, just do it. I promise you won’t regret it.
