    Dear readers, I must admit that your L.A. editor has a serious vice — I buy lotto tickets like it's my job (when I'm not trying my darndest to entertain you at my real job, that is).

There will always be some people who put fancy stiletto heels and scalloped ballets flats on a pedestal, whereas others think flatform sandals and shower slides are the shit. It's all subjective. However, whether you love them or hate them, there's no disputing that "ugly" read
