new shoes aka wardrobe pusher

New Shoes

ok people. here are my new shoes i purchased wednesday night instead of waiting in line at h+m. do you like my grey nailpolish? i had a pair of marni heels on my list and originally i was going to get a pair of sandals (see below) but i think these might be more versatile (believe it or not) because i can wear them with tights in the winter time. what do we think? i was apprehensive about the colour because usually i'm a black shoe gal, but my wardrobe is also mostly black, so i thought some colour might be good? oh, and jon mentioned that i could always get the heel painted black down the road if i get sick of it... good thinking...

they are surprisingly comfortable and don't feel as super high as they look. i haven't worn them out because i have 14 days to decide if i want to keep them forever, so i'm going to think long and hard about them. i do love them though and they are works of art in my eyes.


these are the sandals i was going to get. can't wear these in fall, that's for sure, but they are a bit more versatile colour-wise...

They are FABULOUS. The green heel is what makes them. I want!

Melissa said...

Oh Steph!! Keep them!! Keep them!! That are amazing!! I love the green heel! They are just so original and definitely something to catch the eye when wearing all black. I'm so jealous!! I miss wearing heels...actually, I just miss wearing normal shoes. Even flip flops don't agree with my feet at the moment. Boo erns!

If I've ever wondered what shoe envy was in the past, I know what it is now. Those are beautiful, if you decide to keep them, they will be the center of your wardrobe and you will probably wake up looking forward to wearing them! Best of luck deciding! xo

erica said...

wow! those are super HOT. if only i could wear heels, i would totally want a pair like that. the green is amazing. you should definitely keep them!

erin said...

yes, keep them for sure! i love the colours and can definitely picture them with both spring and fall outfits. but this just confirms my suspicion that i should stay away from Holt Renfrew for the time being... such a dangerous place!!

Where did you get those?! They're extraordinary. Don't keep them unless you love them, but I think they are amazing.

maxima said...

Keep them!
They are amazing!

Don't keep unless you love them, it's a gut feeling, you will just know when you find the right pair.

I must say I actually prefer latter Marni's [?]
But the first pair is very cool.

Stephanie said...

Thanks for all your input! Hmm.. I'm still unsure- which is not a good sign. No doubt that they are fabulous but I'm not sure if they're for me or not. If money were no object I would just buy them both and not worry at all! I will have to try them on with more things to assess their versatility.

The angle of the wedge makes me think that they'll be uncomfortable to walk in - I have a pair of boots with a similar wedge. That, rather than the color, would make me think twice. Plus, if they were a splurge, I would definitely want them to be comfy.

keep those wedges! they're fabfabfab!

Awesome!! Those high heel shoes are really different in design. I like them..

keep them keep them keep them - but only if you can walk semi okay in them, nothing worse than a girl in great shoes who is struggling to walk. Love the on trend grey polish. xf

I cannot believe I haven't known your blog a bit sooner! It is purely fab! The shoes are strikingly beautiful! The colour combination is just to die for! Lots of love xx

If you have the tiniest doubt that they are not for you, return them. If they were truly for you, you wouldn't even hesitate. Good luck with your choice!

I love those shoes, but they are an investment, and if you think you will have and love them long term, keep them.

To me, these shoes seem timeless, and you would probably get a lot of use out of them for many years.

It comes down to comfort, and practicality. You must be a practical person, or you would not be so confused. That is good, it means you think about what you do. Sometimes though, you have to listen to your gut. If your gut says keep the awesome shoes, then do it. If not, another and better thing will come your way.

I'm sorry, I was talking about the black marni's being timeless.

The shoes that you had on, are cool, but are not as versatile. I would love to know your decision.
