[ts_row] [ts_one_half]I was invited to a DIY event with Teva, Swarovski and HonestlyWTF at Nordstrom last week. This is my absolute first pair of Teva sandals and they are so simple, yet so great! On their website there are tons of styles but the one that you will be seeing in this post is the Teva X HonestlyWTF DIY kit sandals. Every each and one of us that were invited got a kit and we were allowed to not only design them ourselves. We also got to meet and get professional help by the co founder Erica. She showed us a bunch of things that we could to design our shoes and it was so much fun!
I was really surprised by how easy it was to attach all the crystals. Most of them were already pre-glued and you only needed to use heat and pressure to attached them to the sandal straps. This can easily be made at home with a straightening iron. Some of the crystals were attached with glue since they were much bigger. What you could do with your design was truly unlimited and no sandal looked like the other. It was such a fun event and great experience as I don’t take the time to sit down and do a lot of DIY anymore.I really get into the zone when Im focused on something and people even commented on my quietness and that I seemed so focused on it.
If you would like to buy a pair you can choose from the original sandals ($90) or a platform sandal ($100) and they come with the full kit of Swarovski crystals, DIY tools, embroidery floss and a little handbook to guide you through your project.[/ts_one_half] [ts_one_half]

We got the original sandals to design. As you see theres not a lot of things that are required to start this project and the only additional thing you need is something to apply heat and pressure. Of course you can also decide to pimp out your sandals a little bit extra buy getting some additional crystals to glue on! I might actually do that now that I mention it. Also you will see some examples that the lady herself, Erica, made and at then lastly you have my sandals!
Do you own a pair of Teva’s? [/ts_one_third] [/ts_row] 0
