Design a Smile from Havaianas Philippines and Operation Smile

Millet and I had a girl date yesterday and we thought of looking for the new designs of Havaianas. I was planning to buy one since the one my AA Family gave me 2 birthdays ago was broken ='( .

We first looked at Glorietta but we decided to check out their branch at Greenbelt 5.This branch is much more convenient for shoppers since it has less crowd. Also there are designs here that we didn't find at the Glorietta branch.

After much thought and asking for sizes, I settled for this:

Unique color! Thanks Millet for picking!

I asked if they honor Belle de Jour Coupons and they said yes, upto 5 pairs! Yes 5 pairs in one coupon! I love that coupon so much!

Millet decided to buy the pair she was eyeing since we enterd the store. She wanted to reserve it 'till next week since she didn't brought her coupon but since we can use the coupon for upto 5 pairs she quickly looked for her size. Here is what she got:
This style only the Havs is gray and the strap is purple

I also wanted a pair like hers but I'm already out of budget since I am reserving my savings for a big ticket item (I'm sooo excited for that, I'll blog about it as soon as I already have it). Maybe next time, but since we have the same size, maybe I can borrow it (hehehe =P).

As we were waiting for the stocks at the counter we noticed a poster there. It is for Havaianas Design A Smile. In partnership with Operation Smile,a private, non-profit organization that helps children with cleff pallet through medical missions to bring back the smiles in children, Havaianas Philippines held a contest for childrens 5 to 12 to design the soles of the slippers. The chosen 10 is now posted in their website and perople need to vote for the winning design. Voting period is from December 1 to Jabuary 7, 2011.
