While walking the cobble stone streets of Paris, it may or may not be advisable to wear a heel. However, speak to any French woman and she will tell you otherwise. There is something about the way that a French woman smokes her cigarette, tells the rude taxi driver to f$@ck or even perfects the act of seeming uninterested even when she is, that is enigmatically seductive. She approaches the world with a certain savoir faire that seems to allow her to get away with anything, and that’s just the way she likes it. Impractical heels or not, I think that we could all benefit from spending more time in Paris, just pack your converse for good measure, as I learnt the hard way it takes some practice to execute looking like you can get away with anything ..
