Meant to Be?

When I was in New York in April, these shoes caught my eye.


They are the 'Lorissa' pumps from Sam Edelman. I'm not really sure why as they do have a little 'dominatrix' look about them. None the less, I wanted them, desperately. But (as usual when you are the oh-so-average size 5) they were sold out.

So you can understand my excitement this weekend when I saw the 'Renzo' booties on mywardrobe.com!
My birthday's next week, so I refrained, THEN clicked over to perezhilton for a quick peruse of this weeks celebrity gossip and I spotted them on these fine tootsies...

None other than Selena Gomez... who seems to have worn them at least four times during her stay in London.



And they look simply fabulous with everything she's paired them with!


Now what do you say girls... are these shoes just meant to be mine? I can't seem to get away from them! Now I just can't decide whether to go for the shoe or the boot!? What do you think?

  4. Those shoes are amazing! Even if you don't wear them much (which I'm sure you will) they're a great piece to add to the wardrobe which you can get out when your feeling down and think 'these shoes are fabulous!'

  5. the boots seem more cool to wear! :)

  6. The boots! :D
    Selena looks gorgeous in them, as usual! I can imagine them on you fleur as well, and I think the boots would be more practical and wearable than the heels too :')

  7. oh wow they are really one of a kind! not exactly my style, but i love how the look on Selena!
    If I were you I'd get the ankle boot. I feel that they are more versatile and you'd probably get more use out of them!

  8. buy them! These are too hot to leave them!

  9. the open toe shoe, because it's chic yet edgy at the same time.. and very feminine with the open toe! treat yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  10. they are both very cool! but personally I would go for the shoes because I´m not a big boot fan on my feet... the boots are more rock´n´roll and the shoes are more feminine with an edgy bit to it :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. They're both extremely cool... But I think the boots can be wore a lot more, and maybe they're more easy to wear too! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Boots all the Way! Cause they seem more wearable than the heels cause......they're boots. (Great Explanation ;]) But you can see how Selena dressed them down too with the t-shirt and jeans so they look more casual. With heels that would be a tad harder. plus you can dress them up too which is awesome. I say if you've got the cash, SPLASH! :D

  13. Treat yourself to the boots! Just think of all the great OOTD's on YT :D

  14. Love them, I'd probably do a DIY version tbh and just buy some cheaper shoe boots, some studs and be patient with some superglue (in saying all that, I like the boots better).

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  18. GET THEM GET THEM GET THEM!! if you don't I just might. I'd go with the boots preparing for winter and everything you know? xx

  21. If you think they are worth it then go for them! The heels will go with most outfit but the boots are cute too! As for me I'm making it my mission to DIY these babies :) x

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow!! those shoes are fab! I want a pair myself!!
    I would go for the boots, there more kind of edge and as you said when selena wore them they went with everything she had on!! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  23. both are really cool...but the boots are edgier! if that's even a word...but just looked there, they're sold out in a 5 in the boot...these must be some seriously wanted shoes!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've been eyeing these up for a while! Definitely get the boot! They're gorgeous and you'd get more wear out of them :)

  25. i like both but think i prefer the shoe in the brand pictures. but the boot looked soo nice on selena and more wearable than the shoe maybe!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Soooo nice! I reckon the boots - more easily dressed down for daytime so you'd get your money's worth, since the studs mean they're equally wearable during the evening.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Go for the boots as you'll get more wear out of them especially as it will be autumn before you know it.
    I've got a couple of pair of Sam Edelman shoes and they are some of the comfiest I own.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Definitely get them... they're gorgeous... I prefer the boots, although both are lovely! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  29. The shoes! More versatile! Love them too which is strange, not my usual style!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Booties all the way fleur - will take you right into Autumn/Winter xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love them! Definitely meant to be - that's just too many signs in one bundle :)

  34. Has to be the booties! Good for both winter and summer!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Boots, you can dress them up and dress them down! More... economical, just to persuade the bank account! xD

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, wow, wow. Those are INSANE. I love both, but I think the boots are more chic and subtle, and also you'll be able to wear them in the winter :)
    If only they weren't so expensive, but I have seen a similar pair to the pumps in River Island!

  43. Deffo get the boots! They are amazing and you will be able to wear them loads when it gets to Autumn! FAB FAB FAB x

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think you should choose the boots. They're so much more edgy and probably a lot more comfy! plus the fact that you live in england where you will probably want to wear bootie more then pumps.And I think the booties can be dressed down, but not the pumps! anyways wtv you choose BOTH ARE AMAZING !

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love both of them, they are gorgeous but even if I'm a low boot addict, I'd go for the shoes :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Go for it! They look so rocker chic, they'd make any outfit pop!

  47. wow those are awesome!! hard to pick which one!!! but i guess I just saw your answer on twitter...good pick =)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think Jessica Harlow has them too.And i want them too :)
    They are fantastic.But i would go for the boots since you can wear them in summer fall and winter !

    ReplyDelete
  49. the sam elderman shoes are so heavy, it will fall off your feet a lot... i heard they were doing a lightter version becauise its problematic.... go for the boots, defenitly

    ReplyDelete
  50. I wanted shoes like that too! I found the Sam Edelman ones and I have been trying to justify getting a pair! Please do OOTDs if you get the booties and I think they look so cute!

    ReplyDelete

  55. definitely the boot! It has a cleaner look since the pump has the peeptoe. super versatile. <3 tell us what u end up choosing!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I do hope you'll take the plunge and go for the booties! They're SO much cuter than the pumps, and they'll last you into the fall better than the peep-toed pumps might!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yes, yes, yes! You must do it! If that's not a sign, than I don't know what is! Plus, the fact they are amazingly fabulous should be enough of a reason to get them! I personally like the boots better than the pumps, but either would be an added bonus to any wardrobe!

  59. I've tried on the Lorissa shoes... Love them! They were sold in FR by Fashion Rocks (online and the Sheffield store), not sure if they're still available in there. x

  60. i love the booties more than the pumps! i feel like they can be more versitile.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Boots!

  62. Both shoes are absolutely beautiful - when I saw the first picture of the boots I wasn't really sure - but seeing them paired up with outfits they are amaaaaazing :D Whichever you get, they'll be gorgeous :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. If I were you I'd get the pumps and do it very quickly! It's absolutely meant to be! They don't have to boots in your size anymore anyway, I checked because I love them so much!!

    They're both gorgeous! I love them, I'm thinking of getting one of them myself :)

  65. Go for the shoe! They are absolutely gorgeous!

  66. I've been eyeing these shoes for a while and still didn't make up my mind about them specially after trying them on, they're so high I feel like I'm walking on my toes with no support or platform whatsoever. If you can walk in these babies then go for the shoes, although hard to walk in (for me) they looked HAWT !
    Now if the boots have a platform then I'm so getting them.

    ReplyDelete
  67. get them! both pairs are gorgeous doll!

  68. Alternatively, I saw a girl on youtube who wanted these shoes as well but didn't have them - I don't know whether they didn't have her size or if it was a cost thing - but she got some cheap(er) plain heels, some of t he studs/spikes and made them herself:) Just an example if you pick one and can't get it in your size!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh my gosh!! I have been obsessed with those pumps for months!!! Although I cannot get them myself. sad day. BUT you should definitely get the pumps!

  71. I have also been obsessing about those pumps and it was my bday a few days ago and I decided to get the pumps in a nude leather. The leather is soooo soft and they look amazing! You should definitely get the pumps without a doubt. The front of the boots looks a bit awkward with the style. I don't know about the boots, but if you get the pumps get a half size down so they don't slip off your feet. And I personally don't think they're as heavy and uncomfortable as people say. The half size down doesn't slip off and I don't notice the weight, although they are obviously heavier than most shoes, but I personally find them reasonably comfortable.

  72. get the booties! they are soso cute, and they look way cuter then the heels. and its a total plus that selena gomaz was wearing them, makes them evenbetter!(:
