Will you please help me choose who should leave?
The gold Mary Jane has been with me the longest, but has never been worn. It was too hot to wear these in July (plus I hate closed toes in summer) and I had purchased them for fall anyway, because I love the idea of a cream patent shoe with opaque tights. But there’s the matter of all this gold. It’s crackly gold, and so very yellow that I’m unsure.
Its sister shoe is this similarly styled black patent and brown crackly metallic MJ. If the gold shoe is too much, I fear that this shoe may be too little. As a Mary Jane is a fairly conventional shape, I’d want a truly rocking texture. And I’m not sure if this crackly brown metallic stands out enough to meet my eccentricity quotient.
Both shoes, by the way, are by Juicy Couture, which also gives me pause re: quality. And they weren’t exactly modestly priced.
Finally, here’s the Tibi, in her peacock glory. This one could be a charmer, if only the toe were pointier and the embellishment smaller. I’m quite sure I’d never wear it. Tibi, alas, is not to be.
But: what do you think of the two MJs? Is the gold too bold? Is the brown too timid?
