If you had told me a month ago that my tripod and I would be standing in my back lane at 7 o’clock in the morning wearing full-length green sequins and gladiator cuffs, with short hair and freezing my face off, I would have had a giggle and secretly wished it were true. Fortunately for me, that’s exactly what went down this morning. I know I told all you Instagram, Twitter and Facebook lovers yesterday that today’s post would involve jelly sandals, but how could I say no when the Bespoke girls asked if I’d like to borrow this mermaid of a sequined beauty to share with you guys?

I couldn’t. That’s how.

Fear not – jelly sandals are still to come, but today, let’s stick with these Opening Ceremony beauties that I love more and more every time I look at them. The structure is so subtle, elegant and refined – how perfect is the little ladybeetle hardware! I love the rounded toe (especially now when pointy shoes are having such a freak out). And after all that pizazz, the gunmetal cuffs manage to complement the whole picture. Good work, Diva.

How green and sequiny would you go? I grew up wearing spangly lycra for dance and gymnastics so it doesn’t phase me as much as your average lady friend.

P.S. I’m loving all your entries to my birthday giveaway so far! If you haven’t entered yet, get in quick before next Monday and tell your friends!
