It took trial and error. Numerous sleepless nights, and endless brain-storming sessions to come up with a pair of ballet flats that would not only be pleasing to the eye, but also be comfortable to wear.
I sold my first pair of ballet flats on Etsy back on August 14, 2011.
It was a simple ivory satin pair. Dainty and feminine. It wasn't perfect, yet, the bride loved her flats. Her feedback allowed me to continue improving them. I invested numerous hours in order to come up with the right fit, the right design, the final master piece. Have I accomplished perfection? I believe so, and I am very proud of this long journey.
Today, I offer a HUGE variety of ballet flats, crafted in various fabrics, such as satin, lace, sequin, faux suede, cotton, velvet, to name a few. Plain designs, or designs with embellishments.
I custom-match wedding colors to ensure your flats are designed in your wedding palette. My ballet slippers are custom-made. This ensures that the pair fits each of my clients like a "glove". A pattern is created for each foot in order to achieve the perfect fit.
Who purchases Sol Bijou ballet flats? Brides who love comfort, impeccably-crafted shoes and aesthetics. Many of my brides (like me) have one foot longer than the other, or a wide-shoe fit. I have also encountered brides who have physical limitations, such as fibromyalgia or asymmetric feet who are unable to find a flexible, cushioned and soft pair elsewhere.
Imagine your bridesmaids wearing a unique pair of ballet flats that displays your preferred shades, beautifully made and decorated, in perfect sync with your wedding palette and decor....
