If I'm being honest, I am not really a fan of the Valentino studded heels everyone was raving about for spring and summer. They had a cool vibe, but the overall design was not my cup of tea. The one thing I did like about them, though, were the studs. Studs are usually associated with rocker chic style or something along the lines of a tough-biker-girl persona, but Valentino made them look incredibly feminine. Luckily on one of my next shopping trips to Rue21 I spotted a black studded bag that was more Glamour Girl than rock star. And the best part about it? The bag was on 75% off sale for $5. So much for $1,000 Valentino stilettos.
