zando to the rescue

YAY for {Zando} and {Havaianas}! I have a pair of black and gold Havaianas and I have been ON THE HUNT for a silver pair but can never find where they are stocked! Same goes with my hubby. He is a size 12 and no store seems to stock his shoe size!! I have heard so much about {Zando}- All its radio ads etc so thought I'd pop on and take a browse through. They stock Havaianas! In our sizes! YIPPEE! Just placed my order and cannot wait for them to arrive.
 
 
PS: Don't let my hubby know about this sneaky purchase, keeping them hidden for his birthday :)
