In Which You Have A Vital Potentially Life-Altering Decision To Make


My darling Gentle Reader, an aberrant Fashion-only post because I am in a quandary. If you are not interested or feel yourself unqualified to judge shoes, please do not hesitate to skip to the Daily Dose below.

I need your help.

As you may, or may not know (depending on your length of time following this blog) when I finish a book I allow myself the purchase of a new pair of shoes. Well I already knew what kind of shoe I wanted, a cream colored peep toe with bow. So today I sallied forth and found . . . two! They are slightly different from one another however, just enough that I can not, for the life of me, decide between them.

Save me, my dears, please?
Option one is a slightly warmer cream with a larger flat bow, smaller peep-toe, and a kitten heal.


Option two is a slightly cooler cream with a smaller tied bow, larger peep-toe, and a stiletto.

On the basis of looks alone, which one would you keep?

Option one is softer, lighter, and more rounded. To me, it has a more vintage feel and it's more comfortable. However, it's also almost 2x more expensive. Option two is more elegant and refined, less comfortable (although I think it will break in), more stable (despite the higher heal) and probably more durable.



Knowing this additional information, which one should remain part of my wardrobe.

Quote of the Day:
"If you desire to enjoy life, avoid unpunctual people. The impede business and poison pleasure. Make it your own rule not only to be punctual, but a little beforehand. Such a habit secures a composure which is essential to happiness. For want of it, people live in a constant fever, and ut all about them into a fever too."
~ Thos. Walker, M.A. 1876
