Hello everyone — we must be brief as we are helping the Consort with orders at The Preppy Princess during our big Cyber Wednesday Sale! The sale gives you 20% off the entire site!

That means 20% off our Preppy Placemat™ collections, like these holiday placemats accented with our favorite grosgrain ribbon from the Christmas Candy Cane line:

Or our Holiday Snowman placemats.  These are all reversible so you get the value of two looks for the price of one, they are Made in the USA of 100% cotton, and they go in the washing machine and dryer! (Many consider this to be the best attribute, no dry cleaning for these upscale linens!)

Of course you want to have matching napkins, also reversible in 100% cotton, Made in the USA and washing machine friendly. The solid red and green is a tad more sedate, but our preference is the whimsical red/greenstripe with a solid red or green on the other side. (You get to choose the reverse side color.)

Knowing how much most preps love their flip-flops *and* their grosgrain ribbon, the Sale offers a wonderful opportunity to buy yourself a pair, or perhaps a ribbon belt as a gift …?

TPC (The Princess Consort) is giving us what is generally referred to as the “death stare” here at the Palace, so I’d best toddle on over to order fullfillment and get busy or he may take away my tiara! Oh No!

The Ultimate Preppy Ribbon Flip-Flops and Belts!

You know, there may be no more universally recognized ‘preppy accessory’ than the grosgrain ribbon belt or flip-flops. In some locales it might be a tote or a headband, pearls in a more formal setting, but as a rule nothing says “preppy” like a ribbon belt or flip-flops. And here at the Prepatorium we have struggled as we searched high and low for grosgrain ribbon belts and flip-flops to bring to you, items that were different, a step above all the ‘usual’ or mundane examples, these had to be something better. They needed to be bright and vibrant with a touch of whimsy while retaining a sophisticated edge; it goes without saying they needed to be very well-made. We were about to give up.

And then it happened! We found these wonderful pieces practically in our own back yard, and we are ever-so-pleased to present for you the very new Princess Flip-Flops and matching Princess Belts.

A fabulous addition to the Preppy Princess, we think of them as the ultimate preppy grosgrain ribbon flip-flops and belts. These treasures are different from the majority of grosgrain ribbon belts or flip-flops we generally see, those that are all kind of similar in style with a single piece of ribbon as the decor. Our Princess Belts and Flip-Flops are made using several different pieces of vibrant ribbon, then those pieces are interwoven by hand for a unique and perfectly preppy style statement you’ll just love. (Well, if The Princess isn’t proud of herself for finding these treasures?)

Preppy Princess FlipFlops #1

The Princess is very fond of the ‘Bubblegum‘ flips seen below, after all, they’re made with interwoven grosgrain ribbon in ‘our colors’ of pink and green! They’re shown with the matching belt, and honestly, these are to die for, it’s that simple. To. Die. For.

The next colorway just screams summer sun and beachy blues of water and sky. The only thing that could *arguably* be better than the grograin ribbons used in this pattern it’s the name: Lopsickle.

This next pair is in the Cotton Candi colorway, that chic teal and chocolate brown, pretty cool to look at and like all of our flips, pretty comfortable as well, because they are made with an über comfy sole.

Of course there is nothing like the timeless style of black and white to boost your wardrobe’s versatility and style; that’s a combo that will go with just about anything. We present the Domino pattern.

There’s a little secret in the family that is now known by everyone. (By definition I guess that would mean it is no longer a secret.) At any rate the story is that while growing up I always took only the purple and the green gumdrops from the bowl and left the rest; we think perhaps that accounts for my love of this pattern appropriately dubbed ‘Gumdrop‘.

For those of us wanting to get a little more formal, here’s an alternative: a classic Stewart plaid in red and navy with a touch of green.

We hope you love these as much as we do here at the Prepatorium. We’re proud to say they are made in the USA, and the soles of the flip-flops are a step above (no pun intended) most you see, cushier and conforming better to your foot a bit, unlike less well-made flips.

Because we know you will love them as much as we do, we are offering a special offer for our wonderful blog readers. You can receive 10% off your total purchase at PreppyPrincess.com, not just the flip-flops or belts, 10% off your entire purchase through midnight on Sunday, August 17th. The coupon code at checkout is FLIPDEAL, all one word.

We can’t wait to hear your thoughts on them, even if you aren’t in the market for them! We simply adore getting as much feedback as possible. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
