He's delicate. Like a flower.Like a chubby, damaged flower who hates himself

I've always adored Karen from Wheredidugetthat's YSL men's leopard print boots that she has, so these Sam Edelman Petty's in leopard seemed like a good alternative. I have always liked the shape of the Petty's, and Karen had posted the leopard print ones as an alternative to her YSL's before. The photo below just made me crave them more..

I received the Petty's today and took a quick/crappy phone pic. I sent both photos above to my friend. She goes "Are you doing the same pose as her?" to which I replied "No I am not, I am in fact trying to hide my bare foot." She and I found this amusing as I never would have noticed if it weren't for her.

Still in the decision making period about the Petty's because J.Crew enticed me today with an email declaring their extra 40% off sale with code "OURTREAT" causing me to purchase these:

The J.Crew Darby Penny Loafers which I had also fallen in love with a while back, however did not fall in love with the price. On sale however, they were a must have. At the moment, I can't justify keeping two pairs of leopard shoes so one will have to go... What's your pick? So far I think the loafers are winning, I see them going with my closet more easily versus the Petty's.

Coincidentally, I flipped through an issue of Elle magazine where I fell in love with the outfit below, mainly those glitter slippers she is wearing. The whole outfit is lovely and made me desperately want a pair of these as well.

Lo and behold, J.Crew has the Darby Glitter Loafers (pictured below) which are a great alternative to the Jimmy Choo glitter loafers pictured above.
