Help!!! It's been a while since I turned to the internets for help making a fashion decision--mainly because all of my fashion decisions lately have revolved around the question "Will this fit over my stomach?"--but I am in search of some new fall shoes and am paralyzed with indecision. It's a common state for me. Decisions ain't easy.
So, here are the criteria: Mainly, I want them for wearing under bootcut jeans. But I'd still like them to be cute if I decide that wearing them with jeans tucked in doesn't make me look like the Goodyear blimp from the waist down. I also really want them to be comfortable, which is hard to tell from a picture, but I'm mostly taking heel height into account for that aspect.
Let's meet the contenders (all are Steve Madden):
First up, Stables with a 1 inch heel and distressed leather upper. I like the distressed leather because when I inevitably scuff it up as I stumble along, the marring won't be so obvious. I also really like the solid heel on this one.
Next, lovely Miss Neena. I love the slouchy look--I can see this working really well with jeggings, but I wonder if the bootcut style would get caught in the wrinkles? I'm also a little worried about the 1.5" heel being higher than I like, but I dig the tiny zipper and the stitching details.
And finally, Ilenee, also with a 1 inch heel and a precious tassel. This one looks just a little dressier than the other two, but I like that it has the lower heel (although, is it just me, or does it look like it's higher than the Stables heel?).
So, help a girl out, I'm in love with them all, but the budget just doesn't support three nearly identical black booties at the moment!
