Last week I attended a Midnight Swim party to celebrate Havianas. I am usually tucked in bed when the party started but I was up for an adventure and decided to throw caution to the wind and head over to Hancock Park for a late night party! Plus there was an open bar.
But I drank seltzer.
Ahh to be young and gorgeous and have long curly hair and the ability to wear a slipdress without Spanx.
The party was in full swing when I rolled up in my stretch Hummer limo…okay, we rolled up in my friends car and it was not a stretch or a Hummer. The first thing we saw was a large catering truck. We heard the sound of dance music as we entered the backyard where throngs of twenty-something hipsters drank cocktails and lounged on white couches around the pool.
All the guests received a pair of classic Havianas and as you can see above, there was a station where grommets and trinkets were applied to the sandals. I put two stars on mine. Besides serving up trays of FatBurgers, there was a taco station serving up food. We roamed, we people watched, we ran into a few girls we knew and when someone yelled, “JELLO SHOTS! Its time to get in the pool!” My friend and I beat a hasty retreat and left for home.
Here is the official 411:
This summer, Havianas hosted a series of secret Midnight Swim parties in Los Angeles. The first secret party was held at Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s Malibu home.
