The Make Your Own Havaianas event is such a yearly treat. Imagine being able to choose the color, type and accessories of the flip flops you want, all to match your personality. I remember going to this event two years ago and choosing a metallic pair with a four leaf clover pin. I didn’t see anyone else with that combination, and I felt I had the most unique pair. This year I wanted to go with something bright and punchy so I chose an orange and pink combo that was more of a sandal. My design wasn’t so distinct though, as I saw another girl with almost the same style (she just didn’t have gold heart pins like mine). It doesn’t matter though, it is still too cute for words and is perfect to wear with my summer brights and whites.
As always, lots of people showed up at the event. Here are photos from my camera.

The guy who made my flip flops.
I thought that contraption thing was a pen at first. Its pretty cool. I wonder what its called.
Patty very excited about her Havaianas.
Cool pins we got to choose from. Every year they offer a different set of pins.
Busy at work.
Very happy with our designs. Note: the one I am holding up is too big for me haha. My feet aren’t that humongous. I got the correct size after this photo was taken.
Summer brights. Bagay with our orange drinks.
Who was lined up beside me? The lovely Mylene Dizon and her cute son Lucas.
