a fashionable quandary...

okay, all, SMC has a fashion dilemma of her own, and i need your help.

you should know by now that i'm obsessed with french sole's rebel flats - they're in my top 5 favorite shoes in the shoe closet, which is serious praise indeed.

so, when the new spring colors came out, my lovely friends over at barefoot tess (totally digging their new website, by the way) torturously let me know the minute they arrived. naturally, i ordered both. but even i realize that three pair of the same shoe is too many.

so, between the stone (which is actually this lovely dove grey in person) and the blue (a fabulous, electric color that is just perfect with jeans), what's a girl to do?

the stone color is clearly the more flexible option - they're sure to go with just about everything, making them the perfect travel shoe too. and i love the passing similarity to a certain oh-so-iconic ballet flat (yes, that photo is of a gross, fake's for illustrative purposes only, do not purchase!).

but the blue is just so pretty!! (can you hear the whine in my voice even through the internet?) they're definitely more divine and striking...but shouldn't utility be a major factor?

sigh...i need guidance, dear readers. WWYD?
