Holly Hauteness wears flip-flops?

She may deny it if you ask her…but our spokeswoman, Holly Hauteness, has been wearing flip-flops to test out their claims of general fabulousness.  Our band of uber-fab PR girlfriends in the big apple sent us another treat to try out and tell you about.  Many don’t actually make the pages of Haute Weekly.

Why is it such a big deal about Holly, you ask?  Just that she turns up her nose at most suggestions to wear or buy flip-flops.  Especially the 2″ high flips with the sickening amount of large rhinestone decor.

Lindsay Phillips has a cute new flip-flop, the Jordi flip-flop.  Available in a variety of solid colors, the Jordi has an adornment that can be snapped on, changed out for another, and not too blingy for Ms. Hauteness. 

Our sample is the black pair which comes with this dome-shaped adornment with minuscule glass bling on it.  Reminds us of a ladybug.  Our extra interchangeable pieces are black glass flowers.  Were this flower clear glass, we’d have to pass.  But the black on black is subtle so is a go with the picky Ms. H.

The black coloring rubbed off onto the bottom of her foot a bit at first, so we recommend a light washing before wearing.  The snap on pieces fit pretty tightly which eased fear of losing one while about town. 

The flips are $24 and come with the adornment shown.  Extra snap-on pretty things are $12 a set.  The shoes are reported to be quite comfortable and are now a staple for all of us at the Haute Headquarters for wearing on the way to engagements, then slipping off quickly to change into our stilettos and into party mode.  Totally comfortable for the downtown/city girls who have to walk a mile from vehicle to office. 

We give Lindsay Phillips a European peck on each cheek for giving us a sample to test out and to change our views (with some exceptions) about flip flops!  You can check out the styles and extra snappy pieces at http://www.lindsay-phillips.com

Would you like to win a pair?  Just leave a comment below answering the following questions-

tell us which of the available interchangeable pieces you love most,
which color you love most,
what city you live in
,
and you are entered!  Winner will be drawn at random. The winner will be posted back here on the blog this Friday.  Must be 18 or over to win, resident of the U.S., void where prohibited, etc….

    Love the Black or Lime Green flips. I happen to be a flip-flop junkie myself…sorry Miss H.

    Those are some mighty cute flip flops. If they are more comfortable than the generic plastic things then they would be worth having. I’d love to give them a try!
    Thanks for the opportunity; and of course all of the fashion news!

    While I love all the colors, I think I like the black the most. I also love the idea of the black glass flower interchangeable pieces, althought I love the black dome with black pieces. I live in Overland Park KS.

    I have a hard time wearing flip flops, fly off my feet when I walk. I do however love the tan ones and the idea of the interchangeable pieces. Would love to try these to see if I can keep them on my feet! Olathe, KS

    I probably would prefer the black or white because then I could buy brightly colored adornments just for that “pop of color” for my tootsies!! But of course I would not my pedicure color to clash with my flip adornment!!!LOL Still prefer my stilletos but these would be nice to wear before or after wearing my heels.

    I like the Josie stone, the zsa zsa tan, the mischka, and the asya. I like all the colors, but prefer the stone (since it’s a color I don’t already have). I live in Hingham, MA.

    LUV them, but I luv flip flops. Always have and always will. The new styles allow you to dress them up (to a point) or down. Could not wait for nice weather to get them on.

    Bright, colorful and not overstated! Really love the basic black but the pink is fun and really pops! The dome flowers adorn the flip flops just perfectly. Kansas City, MO

    I like the black ones, you can never go wrong with a pair of staple black flip flops, the ones with the glass flowers sound cute. Roeland Park Ks

    Very cute and comfy looking. The stone add just the right amount of “flair”! Can’t wait to get a pair

    I love the green and the black, and the interchangable pieces I would probably prefer to stick to minimal bling. I’m 5’11, so I can’t wear heels all the time! Flip flops are great for the lake!

    With all due respect and love to her Hauteness, I am a flip-flop-aholic. As a born and raised in SoCal chick, transplanted to Leawood 5 years ago, I have had a love affair with flops my whole life. I’d have to go with the magenta ones, and I love the “lady bug” accessory!

    Since turquoise is the color to have this summer, I’ll go with the turquoise. It’s a fun color, too, and would be fun to use the little clip on pieces that interchange. A flower would be very pretty! I live in Overland Park, KS, and flip flops are great here for weekend wear or evening wear at home, or running quick errands. When they’re new, they’ll go anywhere…however, when they get too broken in, they need to stay home. I’m dreaming of turquoise flip flops on my feet this summer.

    Looks like happy feet shoes to me. And, a good choice of colors too!!

    I am curious to try them, as I have never been able to find flip flops that fit right. I like the yellow pair, as I have a simple summer dress that they would go great with! I’m not much on bling, so a simple piece in the same color would suit me just fine. I would wear them for a stroll down Mass Street in Lawrence, KS where I live.

    I’ve been looking for a cute new pair of black flip flops and I think this could be it – if they make it in a smaller size! I love the black with the flower adornment…may just buy some if I don’t win them here! 😉 KCMO

    P.S. Where can you buy them?

    Super Cute!!!! Cannot wait to get me a pair!

    OK i totally love the nude/flesh colored flips! So hard to find that color anywhere! I live in Overland Park, KS and totally live in flip-flops in the summer, but not cheesy rhinestone ones. These you are featuring are so perfect!

    I love flip flops! Sorry Ms H, but mom of 3 here is lucky to slide on anything other than the floppers! The yellow and pink are my favs and snap on accessories are great! Then I can feel like I have “dressy shoes” on! Hee hee!!! -Lee’s Summit

    I like all hues of blue, so my favorite was the one labeled jordi-blue. One of the “snaps”, as LP calls them, that matched this color is Hazel. There were several others that matched jordi-blue, like Sandra and Brianna to name a few, but all I suppose a little too
    “bead-dazzled” for Holly Hauteness! But what I would love to wear! I live in Bucyrus, Kansas.
