"I love beautiful clothes." -Valentino Garavani

Care to take a gander at what's in the box? Unsurprisingly, yet another pair of Valentino shoes....hee hee hee.
These have been on my wish list for ages, but have been sold out in this particular style almost everywhere. Imagine my surprise when I found them during a random trip to Bergdorf's! I was in the neighborhood to pick up a scholarship check (hooray) and figured I'd stop in. I did a double take when I spotted these, as I've been trying to find them, with no luck. The best part? They were half-off. 

Trying to score this style? There are very budget-friendly versions available at Kohls, Choies,  Long Tall Sally, and Yes Style.
There are also similar styles from Jeffrey Campbell and Kaanas.
These Tory Burch lace espadrilles are sold out but they were adorable : (
Valentino has a few lace styles available at the moment - this neon green version , these adorable pink ones (half off! Also available here, but not on sale...wah), these dark green ones, animal print studded ones, camo ones, embroidered ones, striped ones...they have a ton of espadrille styles available now.
I almost purchased these, albeit in pink, but I held out for these black ones. 

Valentino has a version almost identical to mine available, however, the lace is darker. They're also available on BlueFly
