Fancy theme thongs made for talking



Published: Wed, August 3, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



You can carry the handbag of the moment or sport red-state bumper stickers. You can wear gothic black or pricey haute couture.

Instant impressions are about all you can make in today's fast-moving world. How else are you going to let the world know who you are?

Consider theme thongs. We mean the sandals, of course, decorated to display your personality, loyalties or fashion tastes.

Silly Sandals (www.sillysandals.-com ), an Illinois-based company, offers fancy flip-flops in a wide range of embellishments and motifs. "Freedom" features red beading, silver stars and a miniature rhinestone flag.

"Homerun" has baseball and bear cub beads (OK, so maybe you're not a Cubs fan). Some have flowers for the girly-girl. Some are targeted to casino players, soccer moms or brides. The pink ribbon shoe raises money for breast cancer.

The idea was born when company founder Karen Gray so enjoyed a vacation in Napa Valley she came home and decorated a flip-flop with purple grapes.

Prices range between $22 and $26. Sandals with little kitten heels go for $39 on the Web site.
