With all the parties crammed between this week and New Year's, there's going to be a lot of dressing up. And we all know what that means: high heels. They're uncomfortable so it's too bad they always make you look good, especially with a short party dress. But after several wears in one week, you can start to seriously consider pulling a too-cool-for-school move and showing up in sneakers. The solution seems obvious - just wear flats, right? But why is it that nobody ever does that? We once stalked a streetwalker wearing flats to a party, but we think it's a rare girl that can pull this off without looking severely underdressed. Would you wear flats to a party? (And we don't mean a party at your best friend's apartment. We mean out in public, with many strangers taking pictures). Or do you suck it up and wear pumps to every soiree?
