The Look for Less: Valentino 'Rockstud' T-Strap Pump

Valentino Rockstud Heels Look for Less

Ladies, I've found your New Year's Eve party shoes! The Valentino 'Rockstud' t-strap pump was undeniably one of the most popular shoes of 2014, spotted on style bloggers and fashion editors across the globe more times than I can count. But at $995 a pop, these aren't shoes that fit into most people's budget (at least not responsibly!) Luckily, Lulu's posted a photo of these Wild Diva heels on Instagram and I, like most of their followers, thought we were looking at the real deal - but no, they're just $34 lookalikes! Cheers to that.

Is it weird that I like the Lulu's version better? I have been thinking ordering so many times, just need to do it!

Not weird at all! I like the closed heel, means you don't need a pedi ;-) haha

Love these but wish they had a lower heel for more practical wear.
