this ques­tion 10 years ago, I would prob­a­bly have said no. To­day, my an­swer is def­i­nitely yes. Why? It’s sim­ple—one is able to find so many stylish and beau­ti­ful evening flats in the fash­ion world. Lots of brands, such as Roger Vivier, Manolo Blah­nik, Jimmy Choo and Chris­tian Louboutin, carry won­der­ful col­lec­tions of evening flats. One of my good friends wore a beau­ti­ful pair of evening flats to a black-tie event she or­gan­ised a few years ago. My first im­pres­sion was she looked ab­so­lutely stun­ning even with flats on. She had been work­ing for an hour when I saw her, but pain and stress could not be found on her face. Some­one once said, “Find­ing a pair of shoes is like look­ing for a part­ner.” They have to make you feel fab­u­lous and con­fi­dent. High heels can make peo­ple ap­pear more el­e­gant, dressy and so­phis­ti­cated, but if you’re un­able to walk prop­erly in high heels or you find them painful, you could do your­self some dam­age. In the words of Coco Chanel, “A woman with good shoes is never ugly.” Pauline works for her fam­ily’s textile em­pire, As­so­ci­ated Gar­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ing
