How to Score Current Valentino Rock Stud Pumps 30% off Retail

I have been eyeing several of the Valentino Rock Stud pumps for over a year now but did not want to spend over $1000 for a pair of new shoes. With a little bit of internet searching, I was able to find my dream pumps--yes, the high-heeled black patent leather ones that are in stores now at $1045 (about $1140 with tax) for $802. A 30% savings!

Here's the 411: You can order the pumps on FarFetch.com, my new favorite luxury designer shopping site. This European site aggregates the merchandise of fabulous independent boutiques from around the world and connects them to fashion lovers. Some other great things about this site...you don't pay tax in the US, the shipment arrives within a few days and returns are free.

Although the Valentino pumps were an investment piece for me, I love them so much and it feels good to get them at a discount. Who doesn't want a good deal at the end of the day?

Black patent leather goes with everything. Studded details throughout add a rocker chic look to the elegant pointy-toe style.
