"I love flip flops"
~Anna Wintour, Vogue Editor-In-Chief
We at Flipping Bling can only imagine how much more Anna would love her flip flops when they are adorned with our designs.
Welcome to Flipping Bling!
You can make one pair of flip flops look like 10, 15, 20 different pairs (and more to come)
We are a women-run company on a mission to help you look and feel confident when you step out your door.
You are on your way to creating a closet full of stylish footwear and all you need is one pair of flip flops and our Flipping Bling® designs. They’re great for the beach or a business meeting, and you can dress up a simple black dress and look like you’re ready for the red carpet.
Plus we here at Flipping Bling are all about finding ways to clean up our communities. By using just one pair of flip flops that you can dress up with Flipping Bling, you will help reduce the number of flip flops that end up in our oceans and landfills.
At Flipping Bling headquarters, we know recent times have not been easy and some of you have suffered greatly. We want you to know that we care about you – your mind, your body, and your “sole.” Everybody deserves to feel good about how they look, and with our Flipping Bling® styles on your flip flops, you can put your best feet forward.
We would love to hear from you! Send pictures of yourself in your Flipping blinged-out flip flops, and we just might feature you in one of our upcoming blog posts.
Are you and your flip flops ready for your close up?
Meet Our Team
Kay Van Hoesen, Flipping Founder
Originally from Central New York, Kay moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in 1986 and loves it!
Kay became a real estate appraiser and eventually built the largest residential appraisal firm on the Grand Strand, Certifax Appraisals. At one time, Kay had a staff of 13 women employees; she personally trained each appraiser and helped them start their own successful careers.
Wishing to wear flip flops day and night, at home and at work, Kay realized they looked unprofessional and there was no way to dress up her favorite footwear. So she set out to change that. After a couple years of trial and error, Kay opened her Design Center at home, developed the patent-pending Bling Maker® system, found a manufacturer, surrounded herself with positive, creative people, and launched Flipping Bling.
Her passions are her pets (her home is always filled with dogs and cats), promoting women and helping them succeed, her grandson Eli, sushi, and Flipping Bling. As Kay puts it, just because you’re wearing flip flops doesn’t mean you can’t look polished and put together.
