sandalista: design your own sandals + giveaway!
I recently found out about Sandalista - custom printed sandals that are made in the USA. Since then I have found myself becoming QUITE the designer of flip flops in my spare time (I jest...but I literally couldn't help myself from designing a few fun pairs!! I used pictures of my trip to Hawaii from a few years back...a couple scenes from the desert, and clara's colorful toys...oh man...I'm somewhat of a sandal designing addict now.)
You can upload your own photos or art work and have them printed onto high quality flip flops...and then select the footbed color and strap color. They also have artists, designers and photographers who have created an assortment of ready made designs that are fantastic too! (You can even read about the artists who created them...I like that feature!) I had a heck of a time selecting which pair I wanted - one of the pairs I designed or one of the rad designs featured on their site. CHOICES! I ended up getting a pretty pair designed by Kari DelVecchio...tooooo pretty to resist. AND I LOVE THEM (the quality reminds me of Havaianas.) I wore them all weekend in our cozy little appartment, as the temp outside was not exactly conducive to sandals.
*I tried a few times to download my designs to show you - but I couldn't figure out how to do it...I'm somewhat of an idiot when it comes to computers and such...so you HAVE to go check out how awesome these sandals are on the website! Go design some!
Oh - and they aren't a fortune...only $24 bucks. Fun bridesmaid gift!
One of you will WIN A PAIR OF YOUR OWN Sandalistas! Just add your name to the comments section below! Winner will be selected at random on Monday, March 12.
