I decided to sell the Sam Edelman Petty boots (pictured below). Anyone interested in purchasing them, they are a size 6.5 and are listed on ebay here.
I like the leopard pattern of the J.Crew slipper loafers more than the Sam Edelman's. I ultimately picked the loafers because being a short gir, the leopard print loafers don't overwhelm my small frame as much as the ankle boots do. I think the Sam Edelman's would work awesomely on a taller girl.. damn my short genes.
