Notice how you peel off the outer layer of an onion, out comes another onion but smaller in size? The principle follows that of Matryoshka dolls which gives off a set of dolls in decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. The word “matryoshka”, literally “little matron”, is a diminutive form of the Russian female first name “Matryona”. (From the web)

I metamorphically peeled off a box that didn’t just give me my own set of Matryoshka dolls but also my own pair of Havaianas Slim Matryoshka Marinho from the Havaianas Slim Dolls collection. Such fine craftmanship! Such artistry!

I had to know that Matryoshkas are also used as a design paradigm, known as the “matryoshka principle” or “nested doll principle” that is used in applications such as the layering of clothes. The matryoshka principle simply employs fashion that used multiple clothes worn on top of the other and either produce different looks or provide warmth. Very effective.

Ah, the creativity of these Havaianas Slim Dolls collection just overwhelms me just like late deals. This is perhaps the best time of the year that I will post overdue photos from the summer that was. Last April on pre-Holy Week, me, the boyfriend and a good friend of mine were in Bantayan Island for one weekend. It was gorgeous, quiet and peaceful. I cannot imagine going to Bantayan Island anytime than the week before the mayhem of Holy Week starts. Posting photos of that trip, I promise.

The Havaianas Slim Dolls Collection is available in All Flip-Flops SM City Cebu and All Flip Flops, Ayala Center Cebu. For a complete list of authorized retailers, visit
