One Woman's Trash is My Treasure

One thing I absolutely love about shopping in the internet age is the accessibility to so much fashion all over the world. With sites like Poshmark, Tradesy, ThredUp, eBay, etc., there's more affordable, accessible fashion now than there ever was. I've had my eye on Valentino Rockstud flats for a while now, but wasn't able to justify the price to myself. I would peruse secondhand sites occasionally but could never find a pair that had the right mix of condition, price, and style that I wanted.

When I found this pair of flats on Poshmark, I knew it was the right mix and snatched them up. I've already worn them a few times within the first week of having them and am in love! They are 7.5 and I normally wear a 7, but honestly I think a 7 would have fit fine as well. One thing to note is that the back is pretty low compared to some flats, but I actually prefer that. You don't get as much rubbing on the back of your ankle that way. They're pretty fantastic quality (which they better be for the price) and the navy will go with so many different outfits. I found a great dupe below for about $100 for those of you who can't justify the higher price.
