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!
Over the year, Fit In Clouds has expanded its selective retailing to several prominent e-tailers such as Amazon, Overstock and ShoeBuy. Today, we are proud to add another major e-tailer – Country Outfitters. Not limited to just country wear items anymore, they have expanded their product line to include adorable handbag and jewelry as well as household items! Their latest addition in women’s shoes includes portable flats from Fit In Clouds and we would like to to welcome Country Outfitters as our newest retailer!

Last week our blog on the neon flats introduced our readers to our latest collection – Fit In Clouds Neon Folding shoes. We were overwhelmed with the responses and feedback we received! Looks like this will be a hit for the upcoming spring styles! Most importantly, the readers pointed out the affordability of these fashionable flats – similar styles from other vendors are offered for around $100! We think that’s crazy – for that much money these flats should come included with in-built massages! Our neon folding shoes – available in Citron, Tangerine and Lime, come with a smooth inside lining and sole support – and are under $30!
Infact, Overstock has also added these stylish shoes to their offering. Check them out here. While you are there, take a look at the reviews on some of our other flats that have been there for a while. The tan retro folding flats have a near perfect 4.8 out of 5 stars and 44 reviews on the Silver sequin foldable flats give it an average of 4.2 out of 5. These reviews are unedited!
Here is some more help on styling the neon flats. If you are looking for a subtle hint of neon, take a look at how Tara from Three Wishes style does it! The citron in the flats matches perfectly with her shirt! Or you could go bold like Emily from the sweetest thing blog does with her neon shoes! Definitely a pop of color! Either ways, just remember – confidence is your best accessory to this style! And not limiting neon just to shoes, here is Abigail from Style Diary proudly styling her neon jeans! We love her stripe blazer/neon jeans combination!
Whats your style! Tell us and we might just feature you!

Every year, the American Heart Association holds National Wear Red Day, started in 2003, as part of American Heart Month to raise awareness of the fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.
According to the site, the national day has helped create monumental positive changes in the fight against heart disease, including:
- 21% fewer women dying from heart disease
- 23% more women aware that it’s their No. 1 health threat
- Publishing of gender-specific results, established differences in symptoms and responses to medications and women-specific guidelines for prevention and treatment
- Legislation to help end gender disparities
Although Fit in Clouds is not officially affiliated with the American Heart Association or National Wear Red Day, we support the cause and encourage you to research and participate as well.
