Payless Shoes on the Runway!

If you got a chance to see the Lela Rose, Alice + Olivia, Abaete, or Christian Siriano shows, and you liked the shoes that the models were sporting, then you're in luck! You can buy them from not Barneys, not Neimans, not Saks...but Payless Shoes! Lela Rose, Alicie + Olivia, and Abaete have partnered with Payless Shoes in the past, but Christian Siriano is the newest designer to team up with Payless. Siriano unveiled his shoe styles and handbags at his runway show yesterday and you can expect his collection to hit stores in September. Remember, Siriano's collection was very Egyptian, so expect his shoes and handbags to reflect that inspiration. According to,

"Each of the five shoe styles -- with creative names like Slither, Saunter, SheDevil, Sand Strap and Strut -- feature Christian's unique chunky conical heel designed to look like an inverted pyramid. Handbags -- the Shanbag tote and Sassafras clutch -- coordinate with the footwear silhouettes: two ankle booties and three hidden platform pumps, with accents of pyramid studs and draped chains. Rich materials such as shiny dark brown snakeskin and Egyptian hieroglyphic teal fabric also echo Christian's Egyptian inspiration."

I really like the idea of retailers teaming up with designers to produce a chic, yet affordable line for consumers. Consumers can feel like they're owning a piece that is literally hot off the runway and for a fraction of the price! Below are pictures of some the styles that will hit stores in the fall. My favorite style are the Abaete ankle boots with the chains in the front, the black pumps with the bow, and the Lela Rose booties that tie in front in royal purple.
