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.
