I always take a final lap around the thrift store before checking out just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. It was my lucky day a couple months ago at Valley Thrift in Cincinnati, because the final lap revealed a practically new pair of Sam Edelman Petty Booties (retail price: $140.00) for $4.00! I’m pretty sure the shop attendant who priced them didn’t realize what they had, because they aren’t shy about pricing nice things in the $10-20 range at least.
They’re a perfect fit and really comfortable despite having such a low toe box and angled toe. I like that they’re an alternative to ballet flats and a great option under flared jeans. I know bloggers have been raving about this style for awhile now, but I don’t put much stock in the opinions of people who actually like wearing heels – I just assume that everything they wear is uncomfortable – but these are awesome. If you like this style, maybe try your luck on ebay?
