Lust Luxe: Valentino ‘Revealing’ Bootie

by on September 20, 2012

We can all thank the fashion gods, including Mr. Valentino himself, for the permanence of studs in this fashion house’s collections. The Valentino ‘Revealing’ Bootie is keeping my heart warm for the time being, and is one of my current lust luxes of the moment.

As you may know by now, shoes that are studded with some sort of a cutout – that still remain classy – are an automatic “yes, I need these now” item for me. This Valentino bootie is no exception.

The Revealing bootie is the perfect intersection of the beyond amazing T-strap pump with a short boot, a now-classic Fall staple. With a fairly reasonable heel (3.75″) and a patent leather & suede upper, these could transition into virtually any outfit. I absolutely love the little cut-out at the back of the ankle – I think it adds an edge and youthfulness to a shoe (and brand) that’s been largely adopted by a more mature crowd.

The Valentino ‘Revealing’ Bootie, $1,195.

At $1,195, I’m  not sure these are a realistic prospect – I guess that’s why they’re considered a ‘luxe’ at the moment! My closet and I would wholeheartedly embrace these if the price was right… a girl can dream!
