Practical? or Whimsical?

Alright I'm not sure if you remember yesterday when I mentioned that my husband owes me 2 pairs of shoes. I helped him out with some school stuff and of course my bargaining tool is always shoes. Now comes the time when I confess that I actually did end up buying the Slinger by N.Y.L.A. on Wednesday night - the Prada knock off I featured in yesterday's post. Which, of course, brings me down to 1. And I need your help to decide. First up is practical.

Ah yes, now wouldn't this nude mini wedge be the ultimate in practicality? They would be so easy to throw on for a day of power shopping or even a day at the office. I love that these aren't technically a flat but as far as I'm concerned they are just flat enough. The color is perfectly nude and I could definitely see these as my go to shoe come spring. Plus after contemplating my shoe collection I could stand to incorporate more basics. Here is the video so you can see what these look like on.

Next up is whimsical.

Now I'll be honest and say that I wasn't sold on these based on the picture but then I clicked on the video link and was done in. This sweet yet sexy heel defines the word "whimsy". I love the artsy spring print and satiny look of that fabric upper but these are definitely the opposite of the word practical. Ultimately I wonder how much wear I would get out of them but then on the other hand when you did wear them what a statement you would make. See below for the video that "sold" me.

And that leaves us with my dilemma, which I need your help with. Help a girl out. For my final pair of husband owed shoes what should I do? Leave a comment or vote in the poll below.

Although I absolutely love the whimsical, I don't think you will get more wear out of it..thats why I voted practical. I think it's the perfect pair for everyday wear and even for the office. Good luck choosing:)!

Ok, I vote whimsical, but here's why. You know I'm always the practical girl and I really like the style of the flats and the endless possibilities to wear them, but I'm just not sold on nude colored shoes.

I agree with you 100%. From the picture alone, Whimsical was just too much. But when I saw it on feet - OMG! Too stinkin' cute!
