Flip Flops are NOT Footwear

We have come to that horrible time of year again when people think it is appropriate to wear flip flops in public as if they are shoes. They are NOT shoes, they are flip flops!! Shoes do not make a flippity floppity sound when you walk.  As with all pieces of fashion, there is a time and place for everything. Am I sitting here in a full length gown at my office desk? No. Do I want to? Of course….I love fashion. But I am not, because that is not how it works.

If you were to look up the term “flip flops” you will find these two words most commonly associated with the footwear: simple and casual. These two adjectives are meant for things that involve romps in the park, beach days and barbecues in the backyard. I do own ONE pair of flip flops…for the beach. Have a run into the grocery store in a rush wearing flip flops? Yes, but I avoided anyone that might know me since wearing flip flops in public is against every fashion bone in my body.  So, unless your daily commute is a stroll from your hammock across white sands to the piña colada stand, please consider reserving the flip flops for the beach.
