What do you do if you’re several months pregnant and bored at home? Begin a stationery company, of course!
And that’s just what paper and shoe company owner Bonnie Marcus decided to do. As a former New York wedding planner and Events Coordinator for the 92nd Street Y, she knew that something was missing from the wedding invitations she saw regularly.
The Bonnie Marcus Collection is the fabulously fashionable solution to this problem she saw. It began with fun and stylish stationery inspired by fashion sketches and airy drawings that covered almost any event that needed a card: baby showers, weddings, birthdays, Bat Mitzvahs, and winter holidays. Now, the Bonnie Marcus line dominates not only the world of fabulous notecards and invitations, but it’s beginning to invade the world of footwear!
Sticking with a theme that’s fun and feminine, these comfy shoes have entire scenes painted on. Know someone who’s expecting a bundle of joy? Show her you care with a pair of Expecting in Style sandals. Walking down the aisle? Treat your bridesmaids to a pair of Special Bridesmaid sandals. And of course, if you are none of the above, just show your enthusiasm for the fair weather with the Day at the Beach flip-flops.
Each flip-flop has intricate detailing that truly makes your choice in sandals stand out. Footbeds include complicated designs such as images of people, bouquets, beach-scapes, and gifts, along with cute descriptive words to go along. And instead of your average $2 rubber sandal, these are friendly to flat and sensitive feet with a super-soft footbed, comfy fabric (or fabric-lined) straps, and special arch support. A light traction outsole makes these a little less slick, too.
