Someone's watching too many Almodovar movies.

Spain has some of the worst fashions in Europe. They have this stupid haircut that is half dreadlocks, half mullet. Not good.

What's odd is that my step-son dresses like that, but his older sister refuses to wear heels at all...

Are the Spanish a nation of Tom Cruises or something? Why the need for high heal shoes? That just looks uncomfortable.

I don't understand how people can be so stupid as to wear high heels. They're unnatural and terrible for your feet. It's putting looks over function.

But then again, I don't understand nose rings, ear loops and all the other ways people deform themselves.

Why would they wear heels while under the bosses desk?

High heels cause hte leg definition to stand out. It does make a womans (or mans) legs looks better.

BUT it is useless if you wear long pants!
