We guess it was a good place for a pop-up (duh). A design-your-own flip flop fruitstand on the beach by Brazilian-based Havaianas. Due to the excitement of this first ever Chicago Beach Pop-Up, the Make Your Own Havaianas stand is now staying through the fall - well, at least until September. Consumers will now have a little more time to design their own custom pair of Havaianas at Chicago’s famous summer spot, North Avenue Beach. “Make Your Own Havaianas” is a celebrity favorite, with fans such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Ivanka Trump, Nicole Richie, Natalie Portman, Kourtney Kardashian, Maria Menounos, Ke$ha, and more.
