Wearing Flip Flop at the Prestigious Leopold Museum in Vienna
(Flip flops are very popular in Europe, specially during the the heat waves that cover the continent. Popular bikinis in Vienna, Austria.)
If you are creative enough, you'll have a full house at your museum. That's what the directors of the famed Leopold Museum had realized. They give a free pass to art patrons who agree to disrobe. Some of the patrons took them at their own words. Those who are looking have so chiseled a body that they look like models. Based on these pictures, one can tell that they came in ready to see the arts. "The Naked Truth" is an exhibition of the 1900s erotic art.
One of the founders of the museum said, "We find a naked body every bit as beautiful as a clothed body." Elizabeth Leopold founded the museum with her husband.

Family's best flip flops: Where you can get them
Are you into wearing flip flops? Then you are like most surfers, most West Coast residents who wear them all the time. Besides going to Target and Wal-Mart, you can find them at www.flipflopshops.com. My husband and I have owned quite a few pairs so far. Our kids have so many that they lose count of them. They are all over the house. My husband's favorite ones are featured in here.

Summer is the time to wear Flip Flops: Where Can You Find Them?
Footwear designers and industry watchers are crediting the Bush Administration for setting the American males and females free to wear the footwear of their choice during the Summer months. Now, we must give credit to the President for enjoying a great moment with the champions of the Northwestern University Lacrosse team. If people over 45 used to frown on flip flops which most young men and women under the age of 25 wear almost all the time, they can take heart or redirect their views elsewhere. The White House released the picture showing at least four young women wearing the flip flops which end up causing the flip flop flap controversy of the Summer.
No, it’s not the heat waves that are killing people and causing others to go to the beaches that Chicagoans are talking about. A certain group of Chicago residents are mad over the athletes going to the Nation’s house wearing flip flop sandals. Little do they know that the President that these young women went to see has a cool mind! He once was a student, a cheerleader, a businessman who toiled in the heat of Texas. How many nights did he find solace wearing his favorite pair of flip flops? Therefore, he would not take offense if he saw the athletes wearing them. He was more interested in celebrating with them. For a long time, young men and women have been wearing flip flops to various events. They wear them to classes, churches, concerts. It’s the new style of the beach-loving surfer-dude, t-shirt and short-wearing wash-board stomach hot bodies descending on the best beaches of the country.
Seriously, people, flip flops have been more popular than those who frown on them would ever believe.
I spent 6 days paying close attention to the footwear of shoppers and beach goers in various spots. In the stuffing, stifling heat of California Summer months, I was having a good time with a slurpee while my kids were enjoying cones of ice cream before we went in to watch some movies. We sat in front of Borders while engaging in people gazing and footwear watch. We started counting the flip flop sandals worn by the passersby. We counted so many of them that we became tired quickly. Teenagers wear flip flops everywhere. Some with spiky hair were wearing them with ripped jeans. They were accompanied by their mothers. They had adopted what’s in. The surfer attitude and style are in.
There’s no doubt that flip flops have long entered the realms of the chic. The next time you read about them, you will read a review about the Prada-gold-adorned flip flop sold exclusively at places such as Bergdorf in Manhattan or designer boutiques. Seriously, folks, flip flop designers have to make a few bucks. We are not talking about the new outfits that reveal the bare midriff. Parents are already mad over the fact that their teenager sons or daughters want to wear their sandals to churches, wedding ceremonies and important social functions.
Flip flops make you feel like you are on vacation. They make you believe you are relaxing. It looks like you are on a constant beach. The flip flops are indicators that you want to take a break from whatever was bothering you. You want to turn to new, fresh pages. That’s why you will find kids wearing from San Diego to Santa Monica beaches. Stars and big-name athletes have been wearing them for quite sometime.
Wear your flip flops to show that the beach is with you wherever you go. The beach has become a mindset. It’s in your mind and between your toes. Even if you are in the middle of the heat waves because you’ve been stuck for hours in traffic, you can transport yourself to the best beaches in your mind. However, job coaches or career professionals will advise interns not to wear them this Summer. They’ll advise employees not to wear them either if they don’t want their employers to be mad at them.
Some ideas about flip flops:
Most flip flops are made in China. They are only shoes. They were once called thongs until this name became the name of another outfit covering a different part of the body. Even Jesus is depicted as a flip flop wearer. We are not defining politicians’ flip flops. We are talking about shoes that you can buy at Target, Wal-Mart and other stores.
So if it’s Summer, we know it’s time to wear flip flops. People, it’s hot out there!
