We have all caught ourselves with the wrong shoes at the wrong time. All dressed up for a special occasion or a work event in the killer heels, and then at some point, realizing that you were just not prepared for the extra walk ahead of you, or the important errand you need to take care of. You admit doing that in heels is not the best idea, but what option do you have. Or do you?
Linda from Trendy on a Budget shows how it is done! With a busy life as a lifestyle blogger, a daytime professional, and a full time wife, she has to make the most of every little time that she has. She keeps a pair of the foldup flats from Fit In Clouds, so whether it is between photo sessions for her blog or taking care of errands after work, she has a comfortable pairs of shoes to flip into! These flats come in a carry pouch and fit right in her purse for easy portability!
Now it would be totally awesome if she could pull out a genie from her purse instead that would take care of all the running around, but until then, these foldup flats are your best bet!
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!
Fringed dresses never seem to go out of style! Flow-y, sexy and very summery – they are stylish for a night out or professional for a casual work environment. If fringed shoes are your style, you have a whole collection to look at on this pinterest board
Shannon over at Upbeat soles recently featured her fancy fringed dress. Heels, an essential part of this attire accentuate the whole outfit, but can be painful after a while – as we all well know! Shannon packed a pair of the snakeskin foldable flats from Fit in Clouds in her purse – ready to change into them when the time comes!
“They come in a small compact bag, perfect to hide in your purse until the end of the night when your feet have had enough! Let me tell you, these were life savers during my New Orleans vacation! Also at a price of $20-30 a pair, you can’t beat it!” – Shannon (Upbeat soles)
Smart thinking by Shannon – great way to look fashionable and comfortable! The snakeskin look on these flats matches the fringed appearance. With a stitched split sole, no one would know these are folding flats that came out of your hand bag.
The snakeskin flats tried out by Shannon has had some great reviews from buyers on Overstock as well.

If you ever need any fashion advice or want to know how to style things, head over to her blog and you will not be disappointed! She has some amazing photographs -whether they are strapping 6 inch heels or wearing a spring floral dress with flip-flops!
Recently Iris posted a review on the red sequin and white retro flats. You can read all about them here and I bet you will not be able to get enough of Fifi’s cuteness.
Talking about sequins – you can make a statement with them whether they are flats, purses, dresses or watches! Follow our Sequin Pinterest board for all things sequin! How amazing this is Oscar De La Renta’s sequin dress on Eva Longoria. Granted she could wear anything and it would look splendid! At Fit In Clouds, we offer 4 varieties in our sequin flats – gold, silver, black and red. They have always been one of the most popular styles and are available from size 6 to size 12.
While the use of sequin is prevalent today in fashion, did you know that sequin discs were used as early at 2,500 BC. How is that for a fashion trend?
Today we feature some pictures sent to us by one of our very loyal customers. Dani was on a road trip and one of her travel essentials were her Fit In Clouds gold sequin foldup flats. She says she has almost every Fit In Clouds style flat with her, but often takes her sequin flats for extended wear, such as this road trip. Infact, the sequin flats do have cushioned insole and durable stitched split sole which provide added support while walking. These flats will not wear out! These are as good (or shall we say better) than many regular flats! Dani always keeps a pair of the flats in her glove compartment. This way, she never has to drive in heels (or worse barefoot) and always has them close at hand!
By the way, did you know that gold sequin discs has been used for decorative purposes on clothing in the Indus Valley since 2,500 BC? Looks like civilizations after that have really grabbed onto that concept, and now we put those decorative discs on equin dress, sequin purses, sequin watches, and ofcourse….sequin foldup flats!

Chelsea over at Olive & Ivy feels she is a little behind the trend, since she is just not styling her chambray shirt. Chambray shirts actually have been a staple in fashion industry for a very very long time and the trend was a little stronger this year than in the past. Don’t worry Chelsea – you might be a bit late, but you did style them right with the blue striped dress and tan retro folding shoes!
Did you know that Chambray was manufactured in France, as a soft, mostly cotton fabric and its name was derived from from the France region Cambria where it was first made? Ofcourse, this has been adapted over the years, and now many manufacturers make chambray shirts with a touch of spandex so that they fit and feel better. Although most people associate chambray with varying shades of the color blue, it also comes in other colors and is much lighter than its cousin denim, with which it is often confused with! They have quite a trend this year with all major retailers displaying it front and center!
Take a look at how Rachel styled her black checkmates folding flats from Fit In Clouds with her white dress and denim jacket in her lookbook! Oh, and how cute is her side kick Emma? Looks like the perfect companion for Rachel and is extremely obedient to gracefully appear in this photo shoot!
Now if only we could have men that are so adorable and obedient
