A shoe dilemma

I don't write about fashion too much on this blog, but once in a while there is something I can't resist sharing. I have had my eye on these shoes for ages. But which colour should I buy? I'm automatically drawn to yellow and silver, but to be honest I hardly have anything in my wardrobe which would match (plus yellow doesn't really suit me). The black and brown pair are more versatile, but I wonder if they're just a little bit boring?

i think the yellow touches are more fun on that style shoe...but that's just me! :)

Oh, the bright pair! It's spring!

I, sadly, am conservative and buy only colors I am sure to wear. Final decision might have to take into consideration what type of tights/stockings will you will be wearing with these fab shoes!

the style will stand out more in the mellow brown color!

erin said...

oh! i think both are lovely. the yellow is very cheery, but the details on the black and brown pair make them anything but boring. i don't think you could wrong either way!

Meg said...

I agree that they are both lovely but, oh the yellow ones! They are just gorgeous!!

I vote for the yellow ones! And they would look fantastic with jeans, so you'd always have something to wear them with.

Black and brown - it's still unusual because the colour combo is usually a 'don't'! Yellow will also get filthy imo! Happy shopping...

Rachel said...

I say bright, but if you think you'll wear the other pair more often, go for it.

Those stacked heels are wonderful.

the yellow are lovely this time of the year

its spring so do something different like buying a pair of shoes that is of a very different colour and then u will end up buying an outfit that will go with the shoes. most probably the last pair of shoes u bought would be of colour that was versatile.
so i suggest that u buy the yellow ones.

I say go with black and than you can make it as interesting as you want to!!!

And than you won't have to worry about it not being flattering, and you can wear them with more :D

Yellow touches for definite, much more spring like and interesting. I'm sure you'll look great whatever though

Christina said...

I'd go with the yellow. It's a fairly neutral color and could be paired with a lot. I think it's more fun and makes the shoe a bit more unique.

Star said...

Definitely yellow! It's spring. You can't go wrong. If it was me, I'd buy them both, I really would.
Blessings, Star

Well after watching Gok's Fashion Fix tonight I'd say it's all about the colour darling ;)

Katy said...

Bright! Definitely bright! And you don't have to pair yellow shoes with a yellow shirt. Far from it! You can pair the yellow shoes with just about any other color, as long as it matches in tonal strength. A vibrant yellow with a vibrant pink, not a pastel, in other words. That kind of thing.

Maddio said...

Yellow. You can wear it with browns and neutral colours in your wardrobe. You don't have to have yellow on to sport those puppies! They're beautiful!

Dont' we love our shoes. I have a scarf with yellow, brown drk. & lgt. grey, those colors work well together. When it comes to being versatile I like adding color that pops. Good Luck!

Rachel said...

the yellow pair is so nice but the black and brown are not at all boring.both look fab so it must come down to which one you'll use more.

everyeskimo said...

i'm voting for yellow! yellow is my favorite neutral. seriously, it goes with everything.

Melafrique said...

bright.

Callie Grayson said...

I vote for the yellow! I am not a yellow person myself but for some reason am really drawn to them. So go yellow!

{lovely little things} said...

Definitely not boring!

The brown pair for me too!

Gourmet Chick said...

Bright - I had the same dilemma and actually a crazy yellow pair of shoes like this goes with nothing (and if you did actually try to match it you would look too match matchy) which means that you can wear them with anything!

Jess Constable said...

Oooo! The bright ones are adorable and the mustard color could even work well into the fall.

Beth said...

I like the darker pair of shoes. I think they are more sophisticated. But you should get the ones you love!
