Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, and the Other One

What is this I'm feeling? Actual ennui over shoe shopping? How is that even possible? But, for some reason, it is. I don't know if it's the fact that winter is hanging on with an alarming tenacity or that it's tax time or that I'm just overloaded with all the wedge/strappy/tribal/safari choices being drop-kicked into my email in-box on a daily basis, but I tell ya. I'm tired. And when I get tired, I make dumb choices.

Still, this weekend, in between hammering out a rush assignment, I took a deep breath and narrowed my potential choices down to three.

The Parade, by Naughty Monkey. I picture them looking totally awesome with a pair of cropped cargo pants and a scruffy tee. Besides, how cool is that name, Naughty Monkey? Or do I even want to know?

The Lyrical, by Charles David. Very versatile. More formal and feminine. And yet, and yet . . . do I need another wedge?

The Eclectic, also by Charles David. This is the one I'm leaning towards. It has a kind of American Sportswear via Michael Kors vibe to it, only without the just-stepped-off-the-yacht price tag.

What say you all?

Ok, they are all super cute, but the Naughty Monkey shoe is expecially HOT! Love!

Eclectic--you'll still love it next year.

gotta be the eclectic - it's already halfway to gladiator land, it's a slam dunk, yo!

also, what's that rule about white again? Oh yeah: I wish it would stop f*(king snowing until labour day!!

The vote is a tie between the Eclectic and Naughty Monkey – four to four, with one smart ass suggesting running shoes instead. Silly smart ass.

So, I will purchase both, choose the bestest one, and return the other. Both are free shipping, free returns, so I have nothing to lose. Except my mind.
