Pretty Flips – Live Pretty-style Flip Flops

Pretty Flips – The Story Behind Our Newest Live Pretty Creation

When my oldest daughter, princess, was just 3 years old I asked her a simple question. “What would you like to get your teacher, it’s her birthday soon..” Her response, “Pretty sparkly flip flops mommy…”

Ok. A simple, specific request sent me out shopping. What I encountered was disappointing and very expensive. I decided to try something a little nutty. I was going to make those “pretty, sparkly flip flops” and Pretty Flips were born. I purchased simple flip flops, sparkly buckles and ribbon. When all was said and done I was able to put not one, but two pairs of pretty sparkly flip flops together for this preschool teacher’s birthday gift. They were very cute, so cute in fact that I made myself a pair. Then I made my sisters each a pair. Mom was next.

A few years had past, and I was still wearing my original pair when a mom stopped me at the park and asked the question that sparked a business, “Where did you get those adorable flip flops?” I asked myself “could I actually make these and offer them up for sale?” That same week at least a dozen more women stopped me to inquire about my shoes. Now I was really listening and I decided to give it a go.

With a full-on education in flip flop production and a solid variety of bow designs, I am officially launching what we lovingly refer to our “pretty sparkly flip flops” as Pretty Flips.

    I am one of the lucky preschool teachers who received a pair of dazzling Pretty Flips and I truly love them! The compliments are rolling in about how cute they are! Not only are they good looking, they are very comfortable, well made and sturdy. I will be wearing mine this Easter Sunday as I host an Easter brunch for 30 people at my house–so I will be needing the comfort and the looks too!
    Thank you, Thank you!
