Indecision

I love when life's decisions aren't heavy, complicated, or life changing. But I still suck at making them.

I'm ordering my first pair of TOMS shoes, and I'm torn between black and red. Black is more versatile, safe, go-with-anything. But red is fun, different, and I don't have...any? red shoes. As you can see, I'm conflicted.


So, I'm posing the question to you.
Maybe you guys can help.

I've added a poll to my blog—You'll be able to see it on the top left. You can vote, red or black, and whichever gets the most votes is the color I'll order! You guys have until October 4th to vote.

Let's work together to answer the age old shoe question: "What color should I get these in?!"

Even though we all know the REAL answer is, "One of each!"

My friend has those red ones! Red is a very fun shoe color, and black shoes get dirty very easily.

Sarah Thomas said...

I think red is fun, too! :-)

Red is cool.

I say RED! I always buy sooooo many black shoes, so to me red would really stand out! I've been wanting to get a pair of TOMS for a while now, but like you, can't decide which ones to get! lol. Good luck!

Sarah Thomas said...

I have a bunch of black shoes, too! They DO match everything...but red would be fun! Right now the votes are tied. I'm excited to see what color ends up winning!

I've been wanting some TOMS, too! I'm really excited about these. An app I use on my iPhone, Gowalla, is actually responsible for me ordering some. I won a free pair using their app! SCORE!

I'd usually go with black but if you don't have red shoes, then its GOTTA be red. Red's like one of my fave colors (as is black) so you gotta represent the color of passion and blood and stuff. :D

Sarah Thomas said...

Maybe red will win! It's winning right now. :-D
I'll stand by my blog-post-promise—I'll order whichever color gets the most votes!

I voted red. I say you start with the red. If you love them and they are comfortable, buy a pair in black later. Problem solved:) And, for the record--I've not heard of TOMS before.
Hope school is going good and you have managed to catch up. Miss seeing you but know you are busy!!

RED!

Sarah Thomas said...

@June—Red looks to be the popular choice right now! :-)
I hadn’t heard of TOMS until semi-recently. You should check out their website—it’s pretty cool what they do.
I’m still a little behind in school, pretty bogged down in tests, but I feel like I’m catching up. There’s still hope!
Thanks for dropping by!


@AbBeYLeiGH—Thanks for the vote! Red is currently in the lead!

Go for the red! Its funky and it goes with more than you thing. In the hierarchy of going with things there's black, silver and gold, and then red!

Sarah said...

Silver shoes are so fun!

Melody206 said...

I voted for the black shoes! I definitely think black is very practical but I'm totally losing.

Sarah said...

I think black is practical, too! This is totally why I put it up for vote. I couldn't decide between practicality and red shoes! :-)

Mary Malcolm said...

Red. Of course the red. And you could puffy paint them!! And, how sad is it that I tried to vote twice and it would not allow me. If I find a bank of computers somewhere, oh you watch out!

Mary Malcolm said...

Oh, and red can be practical. I don't remember them being onyx slippers on Dorothy's feet. How will you ever get home if you go with the black ones, Sarah? How will you get home? You must think of your future. We live in Texas, we have tornado's. I've seen pictures of Oz, doesn't look like some place I'd want to get trapped. Where's the Starbucks??

Sarah said...

Oh Mary, I do so love it when you visit my blog! :-)

I love that you tried to vote twice! Haha! Don’t worry, red is currently in the lead. And I’ll definitely give you a nudge to direct you to the post that’ll happen when I officially announce the winner! I’m pretty excited.

And you’re so right—Dorothy knew how to rock red shoes. If I get the red ones, I’ll dub them my tornado-insurance shoes!
