These shoes and accessories from Valentino Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection made me switch from my bulky, masculine riding boot hunting mode to lover of the feminine lightness of all things transparent and sparkly — strappy high heels with studs, peep-toe slingback heels and wedges. Perfect footwear to showcase fun, neon colors on your toes and would look equally good with bright red nails or a subdued French manicure.
Ooh, and this totally see-through boxy clutch (so impractical but still love it) and bangles!
Also from the same runway show, a couple of creamy pastel accessories. This pretty clutch + bangle combo in a pale jadite green looks good enough to eat. Yum!
