Whats so special about these babies? Well, the perks of being a design student, these flip-flops are one of a kind.  After doing some intensive research on their collection, the Illustrations redone by work-renowned American illustrator Gil Elvgren. And boy, his illustrations are amazing, symbolising a typical woman being a goddess without even trying. Who wouldn't want to own these pairs? Well, can't keep my hopes up too high, but i'll keep my fingers crossed. And if you haven't seen Gil Elvgren's artworks before, here are some of my personal favourites. 

That Low Down Feeling, 1957 - Gil Elvgren
Up in the Air (Wooooooosh) - Gil Elvgren 1965

Gil Elvgren - Girls on the Beach Gil Elvgren (1914-1980)
Effortless don't you think? His artwork focusses on the womanly features of a woman and i think he really showed the world how whatever we girls do, we don't even have to try hard to look good (; Well, why do i want these pairs for my own? Simple! Its because i simply love Gil Elvgren, and to own one of these flip-flops by havaianas would be a true blessing as a sign that i have to appreciate my curves of simply being a woman. I mean, after looking at his artworks, it shows how real a woman should really looks like, rather than a size zero to symbolise 'sexy'. You can see from the size of the thighs and the tummy area are what makes any woman looks natural shown in his artwork, and i believe that in every woman, we need that confidence to be proud of what we have. RIGHT GIRLS?! :) I wear a size 5 or an average 37 btw. And here is an edited photo just for fun.
