Make Your Own Havaianas Year 7

12 May 2012

Originated in Brazil but since the last decade Havaianas became part of the Filipino fashion culture. A lot of you will agree with me when I say that there was a time in our lives that we opted to wear flip-flops than shoes or sandals. I started wearing Havaianas in 2004 and since then my urge in buying flip-flops was unstoppable. Me and my friends also started participating in the Make your own Havaianas and this year is my 5th year to grace this annual event. Started in 2006, it is the time of the year where in you can design your own Havaianas flip-flops. From selecting your base and strap to choosing the pins to add color to your personalized slippers.

You guys should try MYOH and make it a yearly habit. It will not only practice your creativity but it is also a great bonding moment with your friends and family. For updates you can like the official fan page of Havaianas on Facebook.

Check out our photos in this year’s MYOH.
