Well, times have changed. Since celebrities starting snagging Payless ad campaigns (remember Star Jones Starlet collection), many shoppers started to think twice about buying Payless. Now that designers are designing shoes based off their own collections or just creating designs specifically for Payless many high end fashionistas are secretly dipping into the store with their $300 shades to scoop up a pair of designer shoes for cheap. Brands like Abaete were one of the first to kick off the trend. Although this has been going on for a few years now, I never really went to check any of them out.
Today, I decided to take a peek into the store to check out Christian Siriano and Lela Rose's Payless designs for this season and I must say, they are very impressive. I know they are online, but, sometimes you just need a personal inside look.
All shoes are under $40.
Lela Rose even had matching handbags
