Lucy Hulme asks...

Aside from the obvious practicalities of sometimes wearing flats (i.e. if you have a one and a half mile walk home) or heels (i.e. if you're going on a date with someone who is 6 ft 7" tall), most of the shoe lovers I know have a clear preference between the two.

Personally, I'm without a doubt a heels girl. Flats are great for many things and can often be incredibly comfortable, but there's nothing like the feeling of slipping on a gorgeous LBD and hiking up your height by three or four inches, to really feel ready to go out and enjoy yourself. Sadly I've yet to find the holy grail, but I live in hope that one day I will find myself a luxuriously comfortable pair of stiletto heels.

Which do you prefer?
