If it's glamorous on a yacht, it's glamorous in a house




A lot of people object to the idea of a shoeless party by claiming that such an event would be completely lacking in glamour. They feel that a pair of high heels is an essential component of a swish party.




Well, I have got news for those people. If you ever get invited to a boat party, your flashy pair of heels is coming off. No matter how rich or famous, you have to be in socks or bare feet at a yacht party.

So if the glitterati can look great sans manolos, I am quite sure you can look quite fine if you have to be bare foot at somebody's party.

Please forgive me, but the way the comment above me looked, I was confused as to whether the "Anonymous" person was calling the "youung [sic] lady" in question a sl*t or if they were signing off as Sl*t the same way that some "Anonymous" visitors leave their name. (The reason that I used an astreik in lieu of the actual letter of that one word is that it's one of those words that I've jumped back and forth between using and not using but never fully figured out whether or not it's an official "cuss word".)

Anonymous, did you mean the German city Herford? Another question please: was the lady carrying her shoes or there were no shoes at all?

It was in the UK earlier this week.

She was walking around the town centre in a red dress and filthy stockinged feet.

Sandro said...

should streets be clean, there would be no need for shoes on warm days )

Anonymous, please don't be judgmental. Perhaps she had broken the heel of her shoe.

MM, I assume the anonymous visitor is calling her a slut. It not a nice word, but I think it is allowed on daytime television.

Sorry if I appear judgemental, but surely if she had broken her shoe she would simply have purchased a new pair.

Why would she walk around a town centre, with 2 young children, with no shoes.

Also, some of thep avements were damp and had small puddles.

Thick she was just CHAV like.

Celestial Fundy said...

Perhaps she was very poor. Or a 'chav', as you suggest.

We British do seem to see everything in class terms.

Anonymous said...

You mean so poor she cant afford shoes? In the UK?

Is'nt it rather unlikely?

Also, her children both were wearing shoes as normal.

Celestial Fundy said...

You are cynical.

Sorry,

I don't meant to be cynical and completely support shoes off at home.

I still cant undersatns why a young mother would walk around damp street in winter in stockinged feet. I saw her walk around several shops semmingly without a care in the world.

It does seem odd behaviour.

I work night shifts at an A & E department and I see a lot of girls who have been out clubbing. Most of them seem to take off their heels before or after arriving. The nurses tell them it is not safe to walk about the hospital in bare or stocking feet, but it does not seem to stop them.

Thanks for visiting. Its always nice to hear from people in Hertfordshire.

The most likely explanation in my view is that her heel had broken whilst she was out and that she hadn't had the chance to go and buy a new pair when you saw her

Celestial Fundy said...

You might well be right.

Aaliyah said...

I enjoyed reading your post. May I ask where you got those photos?

Thanks,
Aaliyah

Celestial Fundy said...

Aaliyah, various places on the internet. If anybody feels I have misused their image, I am happy to remove it immediately.

Thanks for visiting.

Aaliyah said...

Oh, I wasn't saying you had misused the images. I was asking because I wondered if you could give links to the stories behind them for me? I just was interested in seeing that if you could do that for me.

I really think your blog is fascinating, keep up the good work!

Celestial Fundy said...

Thanks a lot, Aaliyah. Where in the world are you from, if you do not mind my asking?

You can find many of these images on Google images by entering "yacht barefoot," "boat party", "yacht party."

Aaliyah said...

I will look for those images. I am from the Midwest United States and many take their shoes off around here. I prefer to not wear socks so I'm sure how I feel about going barefoot in someone else's house, but sometimes it just happens.

Erika said...

I have a question.. Is it considered rude to bring your own footies to a yacht party?? I'm not a fan of walking barefoot and would like to wear something other than socks but I don't want to be rude....

Erika, thanyou very much for visiting.

I doubt the owner would have a problem with you wearing footies or slippers and I have heard about yacht parties where slippers are provided.

I suppose going barefoot might be considered more stylish and in keeping with a boat party in warm weather.
