City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

I’m tired of hearing “Summer’s almost over” along with seeing ads for wool. What’s the rush? C’mon people, it’s only August and we’ve got a lot of sandal wearing days left before it’s time for boots and gloves. Have you never heard of Indian summer? And I’m quite certain it’ll still be pretty hot in September. It always is.

A little buy now, wear now retail therapy is in order here, and these crystal embellished flip flops by DiKat Designs are a perfect choice. First select your Brazilian flip flop base in either the flat or wedge style, available in cool shades of pink, white, black, brown, blue, or tan. Bling them up with Crystallized™ Swarovski stones available in coordinating palettes. Each pair holds a whopping 300 – 600 hand applied crystals. And finally, if you please, customize your pair with other embellishments that flaunt your spirit such as hearts, peace signs, crowns, or my fave, fleur de lys.

You’ll flip over these comfortable and adorable sandals which look great with everything from shorts to jeans. The 2.5″ wedge style has been comfortably cushioning the cement jungle for me and look a little more “citified” than the flats. The stones are applied with super-duper glue and stay on well; however, each pair is shipped with some extras…..just in case. Your pair of DiKat flip flops also comes in its own storage bag – a sad reminder that it will eventually be too cold to wear them…hmmm…I think see a trip to Florida or LA in my future.
