The Look for Less: The “Sam Edelman ‘Lorissa’ Pump” vs. DSW

I have talked about these shoes a million times already I know. But right now, next to the Jessica Simpson color-blocked shoes, these pumps called the “Lorissa” by Sam Edelman are at the top of my favorites list. I wore them recently while in New York for “Full Figured Fashion Week”. I am already on my second pair and at $200 a pop that’s a rare thing for me. I am usually all about budget but I splurged for these babies. So I was ecstatic when I ran across this very similar pair on the DSW website. They are a very close match to the Sam Edelman’s except for the fact that the Edelman’s have a bit more studs. I already own the Lorissa’s in the black leather color and I will admit that the nude Sam Edelman pair that I have on back-order now, I will still order once they’re available in stock. Only because the pair from DSW don’t come in my size at all. But between the two shoes there’s about a $100 price difference. My Lorissa’s refuse to go on sale so for those who can find your size at DSW, you’re so lucky!!!
