Payless Shoes 2010 Holiday Collection



Christmas is expensive. I don't know about you but I have to save my money a few months prior to the holiday season to purchase gifts for friends and family. Not only that, there are a ton of Christmas parties, get-togethers, open houses, open bars (yes!), cocktail hours, holiday work functions, etc. that I have to attend around this time of year and I usually end up spending money that wasn't in my budget on a new dress (or two but who's counting?) so I don't end up wearing the same outfit on Christmas Eve that I did in 2007. And with a new dress you need nice shoes to match, right??? Of course right! Well luckily for me (and you) Payless Shoes has teamed up with three amazing designers - Christian Sariano (from Project Runway), Lela Rose and Isabel Toledo - to bring you affordable, gorgeous shoes that won't put a strain on your wallet. Prices start at $34.99 and don't exceed $59.99 USD. Canadians will be able to purchase them in limited stores around the country. Unfortunately the only store in Alberta that carries this collection is the West Edmonton Mall location. Did I mention I live in Edmonton? : )  : )  : ) Besides the bad-ass buckled 'Mena' black bootie in the above picture (named after Christian Sariano's friend and muse, actress Mena Suvari) I also have my eye on these babies:



Lela Rose Perlita Bow Quarter Strap Sandal. I should mention this comes in black, too!


Isabel Toledo Toreador Pump.

To see the full collection, which includes accessories as well, you can click here.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Besides venturing out for a couple of dinners this weekend I will be staying inside under a blanket, sipping blueberry tea and watching movies because it's fricken cold in this deep freeze I live in! Plus I think I should avoid the icy roads. I slid straight through an intersection yesterday morning once the traffic light turned red and stopped right in the middle of the road. I stayed there for a couple of seconds contemplating what I should do. Awkward. I ended up going through the red light. I pray I don't get a ticket in the mail!

My Republic of Fashion said...

Such gorgeous shoes! I love those buckled boots.:) Have an amazing weekend!

PS That TV part sounded gory!! :)SarahD

Closet Fashionista said...

Haha I forgive you for not being a Potter fan ;) But they are amazing (they get better at the third one...well at least the books....people who don't read the books dont understand the 3rd movie XD)
you should give them another try if you ever get really bored

I have shopped at Payless for YEARS. Among the craptastic-hidious shoes there are often a few Diamonds in the rough. Seriously I have scored some amazing shoes from time to time. I'd honestly never scoff at it because once in a while they bring in shoes that are completely on trend for an amazing price.
TOO bad the CS collection is only in Edmonton! Why do they always do that to us!!!!??!?

Happy Friday...stay warm!!!

Both my dad and one of my bff's from Edmonton called this morning to say the weather's been a wreck!! Girl be careful on those roads - I had an intersection event or two myself up there. Yikes!!!

I think you should spoil yourself with that Siriano bootie!! Hello lover....it is hawt!

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Julius said...

Wow, i should go check out Payless myself! I love the flats.

Be careful driving! Do u have winter tires on your car? That could be very dangerous! Eeek, hope you don't get a ticket in the mail!

Marie a la Mode said...

Mrs. Julius: I do have Winter tires! I want a refund!!

NaomiDee said...

i adore those boots with the buckles, gorgeous! be careful driving too! its been soooo foggy over here that you cant see your own hand in front of your face lol :)

E said...

So excited for a new Christian Siriano collection!

FunnyFaceBeauty said...

They are really gorgeous. I love all of the heels. Unfortunately I can't wear heels. For whatever reason I can't walk in them :(

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

His Payless collections always impress me! One of the best diffusion lines out there. I will DEF be picking up a pair of these this season.

Dylana Suarez said...

Ive always loved Payless. I didn't know the project runway guy was doing a line for them, thats awesome! I may just have to take a treck up to Edmonton for them and stop in at Victorias Secret while I'm there =) So jealous you guys got one before us =P.
I know, the weather is super bad here too ... I'll cross my fingers you dont get that ticket in the mail, glad you weren't hurt xoxo.

All Made Up said...

the shoes look gorgeous (and the prices sound great!) I love the second pair cos they just remind me of a Christmas pressie with a big red bow. Perfect for this time of year!

Sounds like you were really lucky you didnt have an accident! The roads are such a nightmare at the min - makes me really nervous cos some people just dont seem to slow down even though there's ice everywhere first thing in the morning. Shall keep my fingers crossed for you not getting a ticket! :)

shari @ little blue deer said...

Oh my gosh, I love these! I am all about bows for the holidays, definitely going to check it out! Marie, you wouldn't believe, you were in my dream last night! It was so random, but I dreamed that we got to meet, how crazy is that! Maybe someday, anyway, I woke up this morning and was like, "I dreamed about Marie a la Mode, lol!"

J. said...

I love ALL of the shoes!!!
Marie you are making me want to go shoe shopping! I do need a pair to go with this great dress I have....;)
Great post.
:) J.

Jessica said...

Wow, Payless is really stepping it up! I love the shoes.

Alexandra said...

Hey Marie, i tagged you to do ''my make up story'' in my last post
kisses

Kaitlyn said...

LOVE the first buckle pair! and i love christian! can't wait to see these in person.

Mimi said...

These are great, and I have to say, shoes are getting so expensive these days, and I ruin half of mine on the streets in new york anyway. I'd rather drop my $$$ on handbags anyway! If they're comfy I might have to pick up some good ole payless heels this year!
