fashion alert concern

So, I've basically become victim to DSW's email trend alerts and I hate to admit....that marketing scheme of sending me pictures of really cute shoes via email...is working. Big time. Three new pairs of shoes in almost a month? I mean come on. I am normally really good about not buying that many shoes...ok that's a lie. But I try.

And truthfully, I fell in love with these first ones. But the second ones are what caught my eye at first...but I'm worried that the entire color blocking shoes is going to be this decades version of the big clod shopper shoes from the 70's that they wear in the new Mamma Mia movie during their performance...I mean, does anybody think that they're popularity will last more than a season or two? Seriously, do you? Still I love them. Advice? Opinions? Something people.


OR

which do you prefer? Think will last (stylewise) longer?

I dunno. Now I'm thinking I don't like either...ugh. I am such a woman.

HELP!

First ones yes, second ones NOOOOooooOOOOoooo... The first ones are in more neutral colors and will therefore be more acceptable, even when the block may go out of style you'll still be able to get away with wearing them and looking awesome. Unfortunately, the second ones will be a flash in the pan. You'd have to wear a very specific shade of purple to make that okay even NOW.

Those are my impressions anyway :)

I agree with bobowhee. go with neutral. it's definitally your safest best as far as staying in style. I love the yellow strip on the second pair but that is besides the point.

Don't send those emails my way. I'm already a sucker for shoes.

I definitely think the first pair will last in the long run. You can't go wrong with a nude shoe. Heck, just buy them both!
