In July 2012, the then-up-and-coming starlet Bella Thorne was among the celebs spotted attending the Teen Choice Awards.

She was joined by her boyfriend, Tristan Klier, whom she started dating in early 2012. One year later, he gave her a promise ring.

“It’s not a traditional promise ring. It’s basically to always stay truthful,” Bella said in an interview with Seventeen.

“I think that’s a really important part of a relationship, that you’re always honest with each other.”

“The ring has a heart, and ‘Tristan and Bella’ is inscribed. It’s a promise to stay pure to ourselves,” she said about the ring.

“Tristan was not a relationship guy before me. On our first date, he thought I was going to be just like the other girls he had met who would always give it up and kiss him right away,” Thorne revealed about kissing her boyfriend.

“I waited six weeks—I had to make sure he was in it to win it.”

“It needs to be the most special, beautiful thing that ever happened,” she added about having sex with someone.

“It should be a decision you feel right about. If you don’t feel 100 percent about it, then it shouldn’t happen. It has to be something you want with your whole heart.”

The then-14-year-old actress arrived at the event in an interesting mix of sparkles from All Saints, namely a dazzling sequined skirt topped with a silk blouse in the subtlest shade of blush.

She capped off the outfit with a pair of Brian Atwood ankle strap booties in glittered pewter.

So here’s the question for all you heel-savvy fashionistas out there, what do you think of Bella’s mixology here?

The contrast between light to dark and the somewhat surprising choice to wear booties instead of the usual pumps or sandals gave her look a more interesting twist, but do you think she could have done better?

If you ask us, we actually think she looks fabulous. The style is fresh, young, and edgy. It doesn’t seem like she’s trying too hard.

Of course, some of you may disagree, but differences in opinion aside, here are a few more tidbits about her disco-worthy kicks for those of you interested. Bella wore a pair of B by Brian Atwood sparkle ankle strap booties.

It’s a gorgeous slip-on done in a more glamorous way – covered in glittered fabric and decorated with nubuck elements here and there.

The shoes are about 4.25 inches high (platform thickness at 0.25 in) so they’re fairly manageable. You can also simply remove the ankle straps if you don’t like wearing ’em.
