I am very excited by the fact that I now need to change my number one wish list item, Valentino Shoes, as I purchased my beautiful babies this weekend!  I have been going to Valentine at Fashion Avenue in
the Dubai Mall relentlessly for months, trying to get hold of the baby pink or nude pair of Garavani's, without any luck.  They never have my size and the waiting list is so long I was beginning to give up.

On Friday I popped to The Dubai Mall for a little retail therapy and whilst taking a short cut through Galleries Lafayette, I thought I would pass by the Valentino section out of curiosity to see what souls they had in stock.  When I saw these shoes it was love at first sight.  I hadn't seen this colour combination before, blush pink toes with lilac ankle straps, but I was convinced they wouldn't have my size.  Fortunate for me, they did!

These were the last pair available in the UAE (sorry) and cost AED3,390 which is a little cheaper than the ones in stock at the actual Valentino store that retail for AED3,750.  They seem so comfortable to wear, but they haven't had an official debut yet - so expect my next OOTD to feature them shortly...
