How I love these sandals by Valentino! Let me count the ways..the studs are perfection, the colour sublime and the advert? So cool! – the manly hand resplendent with tattoos wearing the straps like a macho bracelet. I’ve always had a thing about Greek sandals and I’ve been lusting after a gladiator style pair since the summer. Happily I was lucky enough to receive a pair for my birthday in November, all the way from Athens from the very shop recommended by our lovely blogger Lia.

So I’m now the proud owner of a pair of ancient shoes, bought in Greece through the power of the blogging world, walking in the same footsteps as many of my icons and sharing the love with one of my favourite brands. Could it get much better??
(Now all I need is the maxi-denim skirt (dropped waist Valentino style) and white-rolled Palazzo pants I can see in my head to wear with them…and of course..the sun!!)
