Toms Shoes Painting Extravaganza

Downtown Ventura was a happening place at Wetsand Surfshop for the 4th Annual Art, Music and TOMS Shoes Event. Here is how it works:

1. Come to Wetsand Surfshop
2. Purchase a pair of Toms Shoes.
3. Get your Toms custom styled.
4. Hang with your friends and meet new friends.
5. Listen to music!

The DJ was jammin. It was like listening to my own personal playlist that I listen to at home! The people were all so psyched on their newly painted shoes. The artists were superb. And there was also a cute golden retriever dog hanging out in the store, which makes me really happy. Yippee for a successful event.

So....here are some photos from the night!
