In these times of recession when people are clinging onto their jobs for dear life, tightening their belts and scrimping for a living, Deborah Evans has decided to ignore the rough times and has come out with an expensive line of flip flops with Swarovski crystals embellished on them.
Bling is in and these Havaianas that are used as the base, come from Brazil. Resort is one range of sandals that are available in 13 colours and costs $ 130 USD. Metallic, another range of sandals are available in 5 colours and will cost you $98 USD. Then there come the ones with a bit of a heel like the High Wedge who’s sole measures 2 -1/2 inches as opposed to the 3/4 inch soled sandals mentioned previously. The High Wedge sandal is available in basic colours such as black, brown and white and costs $185 USD.
And even if that much bling ain’t enough for you, you can get the D-Street line made of rubber but still have crystals! Talk about extravagance for rubber slippers! They come in two styles – the Street which is a 3/4 inch soled sandal and comes in 15 funky colours and patterns which include animal prints and cost $120 USD. And then there is the Mini-Wedge who’s sole measures at 1-1/2 inches and is available in bright coloured animal prints and cost $150 dollars. And as much as I love footwear, I for one am happy with my cheap and simple non-bling flip flops!
