Not everyone has a job where the "casual Friday" look is the norm, either.
If I showed up for an initial consultation with a potential client wearing a pair of Levis, I would never get any clients.
Sometimes one has to dress the part, and plenty of people do.

Still doesn't require you to wear heels.

How many men do you see walking around in heels? Wouldn't requiring heels be sexist?

Please stop pretending you know about fashion, or care anything about it.
Thats a ridiculous remark.
If I'm gonna ask someone to spend a million $, I have to bring my A game.
Thats a no-brainer.

I like you my friend but I have to disagree. My wardrobe is overflowing with heels. Bordello heels are the best!

The only thing I have to say about them is "doesn't it hurt to walk in them????"
I feel pain just watching them try to walk in them and i might add most of them can't walk in them....high heels do something for the legs yes but the higher they are the more ridiculous they look.

If it's sexist to require you to wear a dress, then it's sexist to require you to wear heels.

I, for one, don't have any problems with sexism.

There's no reason you can't "bring your A-game" wearing flat shoes.

So what is this with the "sexism"?
I work for myself, am I discriminating against me?
Oy, you dont know what you dont know.
That has nothing to do with the fact that I'm an interior designer, and I am selling me and my design work.
But then, I wouldnt really expect you to understand how all that works, so I am not gonna waste my time explaining what should be obvious.

And this has nothing to do with the fact that other people have held the same opinions about heels in this thread, and you haven't addressed them as you have me.

What does that have to do with the matter at hand?
My initial remark was that New Balance doesnt work well with Chanel, and the rest has gone at 30,000 and climbing.
You dont seem to be able to accept that some people want to dress nicely, whats up with that?
