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.

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!
