Some of you already know the movie which was first released in Portugal in 2000 and won five Oscars,my bigbrother and i couldn't get enough of this movie back then,but i had to bring in my favourite scene where the gladiator- Russell Crowe (Maximus) gave his awesome victory speech to the king and you know you're a huge fan if after several years you can quote a movie scene word for word,(welcome to the world of sibling silliness...lol),which brings me to the piece that inspired today's style post.Ola meus amores,and how's everyone doing today? What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word Gladiator? For the fashion savvy its the ancient roman footwear that was designed for men who are trained to fight with weapons in a field of spectators which is actually the true definition of a gladiator.
I'm no gladiator but i'm a gladiator sandal wearer...hahahaha,safe to say that i trained to style this outfit today on the blog,lol. I searched high and low for a perfect knee high gladiator foot wear and each time my app kept sending me to this particular online store,so after reading the reviews i figured i finally found the right pair.
Fast forward to when the pictures were taken , it was a very sunny ,yet hot and windy day , making it difficult for me to tame my hair while striking a pose. These sandals are right on the spot ''knee length'', so if you're an average height person it may hit slightly above your knee,actually a lady and her daughter stopped to take pictures of my sandals and asked where i got them ,well, my Portuguese isn't that great so her teenage daughter walked up to me and translated, ha!.
Before getting them, I had ordered something similar from Asos but trust me it was no where near my knees,so i kept searching ,they had this colour available in my size but i didn't mind, i grabbed it and styled everything else around it .(you know you cant go wrong with black),but i do believe you dolls have ideas on how you would have styled yours differently so i would love to hear it and be inspired,pardon my rumpled sleeves in some of the pictures,the sleeves of this Primark blouse was designed to be rolled and buttoned up as a short sleeve, after wearing it that way for a couple of hours i let it down. i hope you all have a lovely week...Kisses!
