A Good Reason to Not Wear Heels

diy-heel_300Going to a holiday party in someone’s home who you know has hardwood floors? Here’s a reason to opt for flats instead of heels: You could potentially damage your friend’s floors.

If you’re having a party in your own home and are afraid of damaging your floors, consider suggesting in your invites that guests keep their wardrobe casual.

Check out these statement-making yet practical flats for inspiration.
