Alright, so i got my new adidas runners and my o'niel flip flops ready to go BUT I am seriously worried about getting into the clubs with one of these pieces of foot wear....Now my poor Fiance has to deal with all this girly shit, I bringing along my CHI straightener and a mini blowdryer, AND I wanna bring Clubbing shoes???! I swear hes gonna pull all his hair out cause of me heehee.....

Anyhoo, so yeah, will I be alright? I was thinking of bringing my dressier flip flops (if there is such a thing) or my roos shoes (lightwieght as well but takes up more space) or can I get away with my o'niels or runners?

For all you UK clubbers, how is it for shoe standards in :

MOS
Gods Kitchen
Fabric
Turnmills

Ibiza: Club Pacha?

These are the places that Im mst concerned about. Thanx for the help guys, you are truly awesome for putting up with yeat another vain, girly question on shoes.....girls will be girls I guess.

I say take the "fancier flipflops" that take less space. I don't think you could get away with the other shoes at clubs like Pacha.

I'd take a pair of flat leather sandals, maybe something with some beads or so to make them look a bit of something, or, as you say, "dressier flip-flops". You don't need heels to get into a club, and the whole gladiator sandal thing is big here at the moment, so if you can get something that laces up your ankle a bit that would probably fit right in, without taking up much space.

Do you REALLY need the hair gear? That can really be a pain! If you do, be sure to bring the right kind of adapters!

All the London clubs you mentioned generally have a "no trainers" policy, but it really depends on the night and who's promoting. For instance, on Fridays at MOS, the dress code is "Funky Streetwear," whereas on Saturdays it's "Smart Clubwear."

Just remember that you can always go someplace and buy some cheap clubby shoes while you're there. Although London and Ibiza aren't usually associated with cheap

Yeah, you'll be good with the dressier flip flops in the UK for sure. They're pretty much all I wear on a night out. And as Omi said, you can always buy something cheap to wear. Find a Primark, and buy a pair of dressy pumps for £6. That's what I do!

As for the hair stuff, maybe do what I plan on doing, and just take the straighteners. Your hair can always dry naturally, but it can't straighten naturally! And if you're going out somewhere and don't have time to let your hair dry naturally, just tie it up for the night!
