Me as the Cinderella of Havaianas Summer Kit (๑>◡<๑)

It's April!!! And the summer is coming in less than 3 months time!!! Sun, sea, sand, bikini....and what else....???

Of course the flip flops and towel....and not just any flip flops and towel....it is the flip flops with a pin-up girl illustration and a matching towel!!!! And that’s exactly what's in Havaianas’ limited edition Collectible Summer Kit!!! 

Yup yup yup!!! The much-loved holiday footwear just got trendier by featuring pin-up illustrations of beautiful girls by world-renowned American illustrator, Gil Elvgren o(≧∇≦o) I know, it's super awesome!!!!

Who is Gil Elvgren???

Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914-February 29, 1980), born Gillette Elvgren, was an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. During his active years from the 1930s to 1970s, his clients ranged from Brown & Bigelow and Coca-Cola to General Electric and Sealy Mattress Company. In addition, during the 1940s and 1950s, he illustrated stories for a host of magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post and Good Housekeeping.

Although best known for his pin-ups, his work for Coca-Cola and others depicted typical Americans - ordinary people doing everyday things. The women Elvgren painted were never the femme fatale, the female adventuress, or somebody's mistress. They are the girls-next-door who get caught in situations that, though embarrassing, reveal their innocent charms, and they are usually unaware of that beauty.

And isn't Cinderella fits that image? (lol....)

Cinderella was so enchanted by the Prince that she lost track of time and left only at the final stroke of midnight, losing one of her glass slippers on the steps of the palace in her haste. The Prince chased her, but outside the palace, the guards saw only a simple country girl leave. The Prince pocketed the slipper and vows to find and marry the girl to whom it belonged, that he searched for Cinderella high and low by trying the slipper on all the women in the kingdom.

Had Cinderella wear a Havaianas, with a illustration of herself, it would be easier (and faster too!!) for her Prince Charming to find her, haha  (*^3^)/~♡

Like this one maybe?? Lol...

So why do I want this Havaianas Collectible Summer Kit anyway??

✿ Because there's only 20 pairs in Malaysia...and they're not for sale!!! (scream!!!! o(>< )o )

✿ Not to mention the quality, the comfort, the style....and like what Brazilian-born fashion consultant Abraao Ferreira said, "They're cool, colourful, laid back and chic...."

✿ What more, it would be one of my best Birthday gift (oh, I love April (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♥ ) 

✿ And in conjunction with my birthday, I'm going to a beach holiday, so ain't this Havaianas Summer Kit a perfect companion?  (*≧▽≦)

✿ After all, Havaianas is the best rubber sandal in the world, that you wouldn't want to take it off even while smooching with your boyfriend on the sandy beach lol....

Thanks to Havaianas and The Butterfly Project, I'm in a chance to win one of the two pairs of this Havaianas Collectible Summer Kit :D :D :D Excited!!! And nervous too!! Would my size 5 or 6 (36/37) fit the limited edition flip flops?
