the other day i came upon a friend that has the same fetish as me... and that's a fetish for the greatest and all greats...
the flip flop.
i adore flip flops. i have prob 15 or so pairs of them and still could buy more. matter of fact, i added to my collection when we were in the States but after buying the 3rd or so pair, the honey wouldn't allow any more, saying that he thought i had enough flip flops. :(
i love to take pics of my feet in flip flops... don't know why, but i think it's cute. i have all kinds. some have jewels adorning the tops, some have lil flowers sewn to the tops, some are very plain and simple, some i've had for years - but gosh they are soooo comfy i just can't part w/ them -, some hurt my feet but i keep wearing them cuz i know that one day they'll get 'broken in '. they're just so cute and they go w/ most everything. when we were in the States, Old Navy had tons of them in every conceivable color on earth, but sadly, i only got white. i could have bought one of each brilliant, beautiful color... but... i didn't! :( sometimes it's better to go shopping by yourself... that way you can come home w/ the bag and say ... "oh but look how cute they are... they go w/ so many things"... and then how can they turn ya down!! ;) hehehe
i have also been known to go up to complete strangers and ask where they bought their flip flops... i always get the lowdown and run over to get myself a pair (but i'm obsessed!).... and once.. when out shopping for shoes, i actually had a Bahraini girl ask me where i got my flip flops (that was a first), but sadly, the ones i had on had been purchased in the States. she loved them so i told her where i got them and such. she was such a cutie and so sweet.
i don't see a lot of Bahraini girls wearing flip flops. sometimes i do, but not often. wonder why. i see more of a younger crowd wearing them here and expats, but that's about it. me, i like comfort and what's easy... but i'm a lil hippie chick. even still, i think everyone should have at least 5 pairs! and you know... i was able to persuade the hubby to get a few pairs... and he loves 'em! how can ya not!
