When I go downtown to the market I usually wear jeans and sneakers (last photo). But one sunny day I decided to wear my elegant, ladylike pencil skirt with heels. Sturdy heels as Haarlem (The Netherlands) is known for its cobble stones. Nevertheless high heels.
It was noticed.
I know ... because at one point I dropped my keys and a gentleman was very quick picking them up for me. And when I went into a fancy clothes shop, the owner told me that she and her assistant had seen me passing and had said to one another: "See??? It is possible to be elegant going to town. Doesn't have to be jeans and T-shirts all the time."
I had a good laugh because this was really only an experiment. Far too impractical for me. Back aches and sore feet.
Can you walk on high heels all day shopping? I cannot.
