The Five Day Shoe Challenge-as selected by our readers-cast a vote for what shoes we have to wear!

Okay, so my mom and I did a 'three day' shoe challenge in which we selected two pairs of shoes for each other. We had to wear these shoes for three days-it forced us to wear shoes that were not getting the ammount of wears they deserve.

The challenge proved to be a great success and we both ended up coming up with some great ways to wear the 'challenge' shoes. When it was finished, we decided to do it again-only this time, we don't get to choose the shoes-if you're reading this, you should help us choose!

Here are my shoes-

and here are my mom's shoes-

and here are some more detailed pictures-

1. A pair of rafia Alaia platforms-stripper chic!
2. A pair of Chloe shoe boots
3. A pair of yellow patent Dries van Noten sneaker wedges

4. A pair of baby pink patent Givenchy's
5. Blue Comme des Garcons sandals with a painted wooden heel and sole
6. Taupe patent studded Alaia gladiator sandals

and now, mom's shoes

1. Red YSL Tribute heels 
2. Leopard ponyhair Prada mary-janes
3. Candy stripe Prada platforms

4. Studded Burberry platforms
5. Navy patent Lanvin platforms
6. Canvas and leather shoe booties by Bruno Frisoni

Okay-now it's up to you guys to vote on the shoes we have to wear-two pairs over the course of five days! If you want to vote, reply in a comment choosing one pair for me and one pair for my mom. Leave the number of the shoe of your choice (example, for Jane: #4, for Judy: #2) We will choose the first and second place shoes, respectfully.

I will post the results on Thursday-this challenge will be particularly difficult because we are going to a shoe consolidation sale on Wednesday-what if we find a fabulous pair that we are dying to wear? Oh well-I guess that's what makes it a challenge!

Comment now and leave your vote-thanks for reading as always! :)
Now I have a cooking class to attend-till next time!

Jane: #3 (because I want these), #4 (because they are unusual/kind of phallic looking and I'm interested in how you will wear them)
Judy: #1 (because I want these), #4 (because I want these!)

I hope your shoe closets are insured!

I adore your blog and your taste in clothes. But you must be really really loaded to afford all those clothes I can only dream of. =)
PS: Your mom reminds me of a younger Carolina Herera

Those yellow Dries Van Noten sneaker wedges for you (I so wanted them in burgundy...) and the Burberry studded sandals for your mom.

I haven't commented yet, I don't think, but I've been reading your blog for a while and it's great. I'm in awe of your wardrobe, and possibly a wee bit jealous...

I've sort of been waiting for the Dries sneaker wedge to come back in a post. Pretty please, I'm wearing them vicariously through you...hmm, that sounds nuts.

I vote:

Mostly because I would kill for both of them, and yet I have no idea how I would wear them, so I'm really excited to see what you guys do.

Also, I've been a reader here for about a month, and this is my first time commenting. I love the blog!

Jane: #3 or #5 (I'm thinking of getting #5 in purple, but am not blessed with long slim legs as you are, boo hoo!)
