When we got to Rockwell Tent for the event, it was already jam-packed with people, all drinking, chatting and standing around with pens in their hands, trying to come up with the best ways to design their own customized pairs.
To help some people out, there were shoe wheels like this around the venue, so you could see how different strap colors would look with different sole colors:
We were also able to enjoy watching sand art done live, which I was absolutely enthralled and amazed by:
They went from this...
...to this! So. Cool.
We were also able to enjoy some jazz tunes!
The saxophone reminded me of Catch G. :p
We got to watch some Zumba!
I was so game to go up on-stage but wasn't invited. :(
This brought back a lot of memories.
Fun fact: I was a cheerleader in high school. Ahem.
And, of course, a toast to Havaianas' fifty colorful years!
And then it was on to the main event... making our very own customized pairs of Havaianas.
Paul went for all-black coz of his upcoming GQ post.
And of course I went for Wonder Woman colors! They probably remind you of Superman right now, but wait 'til you see the finished product! :)

Tired bloggers! Love how their shoes match their blogs. Ana in flats (commuter) and Kelly in (traveling) boots. Boom.

And here are my ultra wonderful Wonder Woman inspired Havaianas! :D
Damn straight that's a Sailor Moon pin!
And, since he invited me and all, here's what Paul's cool Havs look like. I am also posting this, so that you know I am not the only vain blogger in the blogosphere, branding my alter ego on my flip flops... :p
