Success

"Actually, I hear it's quite the thing. The Duchess does it!"

Quick as a flash you remove your own shoes. People assume that if you're doing it, it must be all right. Soon everyone is dancing barefoot and giggling at the daring of it. It's possible you've just started a new fashion.


Failure

'Newfangled nonsense.'
