Oh, Valentino! How do I choose? I didn’t notice any significant hints of this in your Pre-Fall, Spring 2008 or Fall 2008 runway shows; I am truly thrilled to see what is being offered off-runway for Valentino Fall 2008.
Goodbye Valentino strappy and sexy caged sandal. We hope you won’t be gone long.
Hello romance, femininity, coquetry and 1940′s era glamour. Welcome to the Party!
1.) Valentino Satin Pearl Sandals at Saks for $795. These would be gorgeous for the Holidays.
2.) Valentino Graphique Leather Pumps for $695 at Saks.com. I simply love these. This cut-out style front with the bow-tied demi-Maryjane front is completely retro-glam in the best sense.
3.)Valentino Open-toe Nappa-leather Ruched Sandals ($695 at Saks.com). This is soft and yet filled with grown-up allure.
4.) Valentino Mena Day Wear Pumps in red or black ($695 at Saks.com). Featuring an attractive half-bow at the vamp.
6.) Valentino Mena Ankle Booties in black or beige ($795 at Saks.com). Soft, Feminine and right on-trend for Fall.
7.) Valentino Button-up Tall Boot ($1495 Neimanmarcus.com). This is one decidedly feminine and softly-sexy Granny Boot.
8.) Valentino Laser-Cut Ankle Boot ($1145 Neimanmarcus.com). The cut-outs on this are so lovely and delicate; they are a visual delight.
9.) Valentino Suede Peep-toe Laser-cut Bootie ($945 Saks.com). This is the same basic styling as the higher ankle boot but is more in-line with the current peep-toe ankle bootie trend.
10.) Valentino Jewelled Platform Pump ($975 pre-order at Neimanmarcus.com). This is another breathtaking beauty.
I just may have a mad crush on this whole line.
