I frequently take walks through high end department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue to scope out the latest trends and see how items are merchandised. After snapping this pic on my iPhone, I noticed a few of my favorite bloggers like Chiara from The Blonde Salad wearing these often.
The gladiator sandals from Valentino are my favorite take on this trend. Although they are absolutely fabulous, their $695 price tag is not. If you want to achieve this high end look for less, here is a Zara version for only $49.90!
The other flat I love in this collection is the Valentino studded PVC blow flat. These are made in a variety of colors and cost $295. (Ouch!) A cheaper alternative to this look are these Aldo jellies. Although they do not contain as many studs, they have the same look and feel and only cost $25!
Have a wonderful day 🙂
