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 version…it’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?

what i want today: the ultimate flat

much as i love heels, and admire them from afar all the time, the truth is that i’m a flats girl. i have a closet full of them, and they’re always what i reach for. (which doesn’t explain why i insist on keeping my pants hemmed for heels…but i digress.)

so, i’m always on the hunt for that elusive, perfect, “goes with everything”, magical pair of flats. i’d pretty much resigned myself to believing that metallics were as close as i could get, until i spied these gorgeous beauties from french sole. called the “rebel,” these really are about as close as you’re going to get to perfect, i’m thinking. darling with jeans, perfect for work – and look at the colors – if these don’t match 70% of your closet, i’d be pretty shocked (not to mention impressed by the variety!). they remind me a lot of the tory burch serena i’ve been lusting after, but you get the bonus of not wearing the same shoes that everyone else has this fall.

pick them up for $205 over at barefoot tess, and your morning footwear drama will be a thing of the past.
