Because of course they do. In today’s society, it’s considered a very classy, and very elegant thing to wear “flopping” all day long. If it looks good on you, you can’t help it. But hey, that’s not me in a nutshell, and I don’t claim to know everything.

For me, I love to wear it when I have a day off from school, because it makes me feel very glamorous.
