Depending on where you live in US, you may not agree with the statement that the official first day of spring was about a week ago. With snow in the ground in plenty of places, it still might seem like winter. With that in mind, it might be tough to think about upcoming prom season. That is right – prom, which is short for promenade, is a annual rite of passage for thousands of high school students across the US. The dress, the date, the shoes, the hair, the ride, the music etc get planned months in advance.

Based on where the school stands on the spectrum of “liberalness”, girls plan their dresses from the sexy little black dress from the retailer Dress Street to the more modest prom gowns. In fact, to make sure that not all girls show up in their little black dresses, there is a catholic school in Pennsylvania that is requiring students to submit a photograph of their prom dress for approval before wearing it to prom. Apparently this has not gone well with either parents or students. Surprised? And can you image the logistics nightmare of going to shop, selecting a dress, sending a picture, waiting for a response, and going back to buy it hoping it is still there?

 

As you can imagine with this formal events, heels are an absolute part of the girls attire, especially if you plan to wear the little black dress! And just like many other formal events, where the event starts of great in heels, a lot of women end of barefoot or bring a pair of back up portable flats for the end of the night. After all, the party does not end at the prom. There is usually an after prom party and walking barefoot just does not match the prom dress!

 

 

 

There has been a lot of discussion lately (or lack thereof) about women in the corporate world. Based on which statistic you believe, you can say we have made progress in the last few years, or you can be convinced that things have gotten worse. Hope you chose to be more optimistic :) Most recently, there has been news of Google hiring Ruth Porat as its new CFO who was formerly the CFO of Morgan Stanley. She is known as the most powerful woman on wall street, and oh, BTW, she will be paid more than a cool $70 Million. Kudos to her. We all know the sacrifices she must have made in her life to get where she is today.

Also on the the tech world seems to getting a lot of female CEO’s. We have Ginny Rometty as leader of IBM, Marissa Mayer of Yahoo, Meg Whitman of HP, and Safra Catz at Oracle to name a few. Those are heavy hitter corporate ladies leading household names! These tech companies is what made Silicon Valley! It’s not just women oriented brands like Avon being led by us. Now we are helping GM build better cars and helping Duke Energy drive America’s growth.

Did you know that New York is home to the most Fortune 1000 companies with women CEO’s? And who says you cannot have it all – more women CEO’s in Fortune 1000 married and have children vs the national average!

So while there is no doubt that women need to take on leadership roles at America’s largest corporation, we sure have come a long way even 10 or even 5 years ago! Who says high heels cannot take over the corner office!

The black diamond snakeskin foldable flats have always been on our best selling flats. They are sold at boutiques across the US, and have been reviewed by several bloggers, including most recently by Megan Crean from Posh Prime.

We love the way how Megan paired them with a cropped blush sweater and some distressed skinnies. She sure does know a thing or two about style!

If there one place were you need comfortable walking shoes, it is Las Vegas. With its deceivingly short distances between casinos, it is not uncommon to walk mile after mile on the street, and then another few miles once inside the casino, just looking for the exit sign. Add to that the night life, and fancy high heels, and its its a fairly common site to see ladies walking around barefoot with heels in their day. Not just at night, but also during the day.

Several casinos on the strip have shops that sell our portable flats. A while back, we were proud to add the Hyde Lounge at the Bellagio as one of our retailers. Now, we have MGM special order these flats for their guests!

So continuing with our previous post on best bars on flights, today we are looking at best bars on cruise ships! You can see how much we love travel (and drinks!). Why not?After all, we offer the perfect shoes for travel whether you are on airplane or a ship – portable and compact, these shoe fit in your handbag or purse for an easy switch-out from the heels!

Bars on cruise ships are a money maker for the cruise line. Infact, many cruise lines sell the cabin at or below cost in the hopes that you will spend enough money on booze on the cruise to make up for the difference. So what are the best bars to make your cruise that much more enjoyable? We have compiled a list of our best 3 choices:

Ice bar on the Norwegian : After a long day in the hot Caribbean sun, this Ice Bar will do wonders for your overheated body. Inspired by the original ice hotels in Scandinavia, The SVEDKA Ice Bar is one of only 14 in the world and the only true ice bar at sea.

Martini bars on the Celebrity : Watch the bartenders here perform feats with liquor bottles while preparing as many as eight different martini orders at a time. That’s beverage entertainment served alongside your order of martini! All this on a totally cool, ice-topped bar!  

Skyline bar on Disney : The family-focused Mouse comes to your rescue after a day with the kids! In Dream’s Skyline Line, you feel like you’re perched atop a high-rise in a penthouse bar. Skyline has hi-def “virtual windows” showcasing Hong Kong one evening, Paris the next. You will feel as though you have been been transported to the heart of world’s most fascinating cities as you savor a virtually breathtaking viewpoint.

So what’s your favorite bar on a cruise ship?

 

If there is one thing that makes air travel more bearable is drinks service. Its almost bliss time when the cart rolls out and you order your gin & tonic. Like a puppy, you wait for the steward or stewardess to hand you over your drink, and as you take it in sip by sip, the people around you seem to disappear and you slide into your own heaven as you literally fly through the clouds. Rarely is one just sufficient, so you are proactive and flag them down for another while you are half through the first one. Sounds familiar?

Well, to make your flight even more comfortable, some aircraft’s flying international routes now have a bar! Yes, that is right! A airplane with a freaking bar on board where you can go up and order your drink and maybe even risk the chance where a gentleman will buy you a round. So who are these dream come true airlines? Here is a list of our top 4 Airplanes with bars on board:

Virgin Atlantic : Available in ‘Upper Class’, which is equivalent to a business class seat, this futuristic bar can accommodate up to eight passengers. You can sit down with other passengers to discuss the latest faux pas from Lindsay Lohan or the recent stock investment advice you received from your broker

Air France : The La Premiere or the first class offers a bar for up to three passengers at a given time. It features lighting resembling constellations of stars and provides the perfect place to have a bite to eat and converse without disturbing the tranquility of the cabin. Suddenly the discussion of the French president’s affair with Julie Gayet seems a lot more fascinating! 

Emirates : The First class and business class has a lounge consists of a U-shaped stand-up bar. To sit and relax, there are two sofas and a 42-inch LCD screen where you get a view of the world from your position at that very time! Located on the upper deck, the two lounges offer a place for you to sample hors d’oeuvres. You can enlighten your partner about the Burj Khalifa.

Korean Air : The “Celestial Bar”, is a self service bar, for a convenient relaxation space for first and prestige class passengers. The chic interior design, exquisite lighting and impressive sky lounge provide the perfect atmosphere.

Ofourse, all these extra amenities come with a price tag! So next time you book your travel on board one of these airlines, keep in mind where you would want to be when sipping on your liquid bliss! For walking around the cabin, kick off your heels, and pack a pair of these portable flats from Fit In Clouds in your carry bag. Now you are walking and sipping in style!

A little bit about the history of this candy collecting time! As per the all knowing Wikipedia – The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays dates back to the Middle Ages. Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval Christian practice of souling, when poor folk would go door to door on Hallowmas, receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day. It originated in Ireland and Britain, although similar practices for the souls of the dead were found as far south as Italy.

Where ever you are, take these safety precautions:

1) Plan the route you will be taking in advance and let you know family know the area you will be in.
2) Wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking. Flats from Fit In Clouds are known for their style, value and comfort!
3) Stay well lit by applying reflective tape to part of your outfit and this way you are visible to oncoming traffic in dark neighborhoods. This ankle strap reflective tape will keep you safe and not take away from your costume.
4) Check the candy collected to make sure there are no opened packages.
