Boot Season Begins at Payless

To bring in this wonderful Boot Season, let’s see what else Payless has.

As always, they do not disappoint!

Let’s start with a boot I almost bought today. If I hadn’t found a similar pair at Charlotte Russe just a few weeks earlier, these would have been mine tonight!

Women’s Zippy Riding Boot


$59.99 ON SALE FOR $39.99

Tried these on today at the store, and boy are the comfy. fit really well, and the defined zipper and buckle make this a killer boot. Definitely a great addition to any girl’s wardrobe.

Women’s Twisty Bootine


$49.99 ON SALE FOR $29.99

This is a really cute bootie with a nice accent on the side. Also available in black, but I prefer the berry!

Women’s Kacey Platform Shootie

Z London

These are so freaking cute, even down to the name. Love the peep-toe and the cuff. Also available in brown.

Women’s Taylor Tall Slouch Boot



Yet another great slouchy boot, in my favorite cognac color. Also available in black.

Women’s Natalia Dress Bootine

As always, Christian Siriano does not disappoint. The criss-cross strap with the gold buckle is Frickin’ Fierce!

Women’s Iris Shootie

Christian Siriano for Payless

These runway-inspires beauties are definitely going to turn some heads. The textured fabric and modern square toe help to make this shoe one of a kind. Definitely thinking this is a FAV.

Lela Rose for Payless

These cut-out details paired with the chunky heel make such a great combination. These are so adorable.

Keep an eye out for these at Payless

I love how often I am happily surprised now by Payless. These designer collaborations are really bringing their name back, and let’s face it, their new shoes are great. I remember when I was in middle school I had a pair of shoes from Payless, and I was so embarrassed about it that I wouldn’t admit it to anyone. Now I can’t wait to tell people that the stylish shoes I’m rockin’ are from Payless. The looks on their faces are always so great!

I think now more than ever we should all be proud of keeping a budget and choosing to spend less money. It’s responsible, it’s smart, and it’s really a rewarding feeling to know that you were able to put together a super trendy outfit on a super small budget. These notions were the only thing that got me through college, and even my first-job-straight-out-of-college-not-making-nearly-enough-money rough patch.

My theory is, no matter how much or how little money you make, you need to reward yourself. Learning how to do that without going overboard is what makes you a smarter shopper. Sure, you spend a little extra time doing more research and finding those great deals, but you are MUCH less likely to have buyer’s remorse from a $30 pair of shoes as opposed to a $300 pair. And you’ll make all your friends jealous when they find out how LITTLE you spent.

And here’s a few options for your personal reward to yourself…if you so choose 🙂

Lela Rose for Payless

Ashland Mary Jane Wedge


Available in solid blue as well

Lela Rose for Payless

Satin Platform Dress Sandal

Diana Jewel Flat

American Eagle

Kendal Canvas Knot Wedge


ON SALE FOR $19.99

And I saved the best for last…

And just think…for the same price as one night’s dinner (for 2) you could be purchasing a pair of shoes to wear all season, if not more! Something to think about…

Exciting Times at Payless

So Payless is having a great sale right now, and I just had to share it with you. The reason why I’m so excited is because of their surprising improvement of shoe quality and appearance. They seriously have some awesome shoes there, and I would know, seeing that I just bought 2 for $25, thanks to this wonderful sale!!


And just in case you were interested, here are the two lovely pairs I just bought yesterday!

Abaeté for Payless Devon Ribbon Wedge

Abaeté for Payless Devon Ribbon Wedge, ON SALE FOR $19.99 (originally $38.00)

These shoes are so great. I wore them today and got TONS of compliments. And on top of the fact that they are extremely unique, colorful, and trendy, they are also VERY comfortable. I didn’t want to take them off!


Fioni Kardin, ON SALE FOR $10.00

I love the gold trim and the great cut-out detailing on the sides! Unfortunately I couldn’t find them on the website, so this is the best picture I could find for now (thanks to ebay) but I will try to take my own picture when I’m not so lazy!!

They were on sale for $10.00, but with this awesome sale, I got them for $5.00!!!

Loving the Wedges at Payless!!

I’ve been browsing through the Payless website for awhile, and I have been so pleased with what I’ve seen! I know I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never been a huge fan of wedges, but the styles on here have so much personality, I think I’m in love. See for yourself!

Kalvin Scoop Wedge

Kalvin Scoop Wedge, ON SALE FOR $14.99 (originally $22.99)

The first thing I see on these is that beautiful blue, and then I’m captured by the semi retro style of it. I love the peep toe and the shape of the wedge, this would be perfect with a cute skirt/dress or even jeans.

Patent upper, gathered vamp and 3″ wedge heel. Padded insole for comfort. Manmade materials.

Abaeté for Payless Devon Ribbon Wedge

Abaeté for Payless Devon Ribbon Wedge, $38

Now my first thought is that the price seems a bit high for a Payless shoe, but then I noticed it was collaboration done by Abaeté and designer Laura Poretzky. This wedge has a great retro meets modern style, and I love the woven grosgrain ribbon detailing on the vamp and the D’Orsay cut on the side.

4″ architectural, espadrille-style wedge heel. Padded insole for comfort. Fabric and manmade upper. Leather outsole.

Lela Rose for Payless Palmetto Peep Wedge

Lela Rose for Payless Palmetto Peep Wedge, $38

Another designer collaboration, I’m thinking I really need to get my butt over to Payless and pick some of these shoes up NOW! Look at that wedge, people. How could you not love it!?

Linen upper, pretty peep toe, adjustable ankle strap and patent and twine woven wedge. 4″ heel. Fabric and manmade upper. Leather outsole.

Hudson Wedge

Hudson Wedge, ON SALE FOR $24.99 (originally $29.99)

I am loving the height on that stacked heel, as well as the western-inspired buckle and detailing. The round toe is great, and the brown is just the right color. This could easily become a “wear-a-lot” shoe.

3.5″ faux stacked wood heel. Padded insole for comfort. Manmade materials.

Sassy Espadrille

Sassy Espadrille, $24.99

This is probably one of only a handful of times that I have actually said that I liked an espadrille. I normally really hate them, but there is something about the way they’ve made this a full shoe and the height of that heel that makes me smile.

3.5″ woven wedge with 1″ platform. Padded insole for comfort. Manmade materials.

Dexter Piermont Wedge

Dexter Piermont Wedge, ON SALE FOR $19.49 (originally $27.99)

The mixture of the super fun colors on the shoe and the detailing on the heel are what make this wedge stand out. And let’s not even talk about how cute that Mary Jane strap is!

3.5″ woven jute espadrille heel. Padded insole for comfort. Fabric and manmade materials.

American Eagle Karter Wedge

American Eagle Karter Wedge, $24.99

Another great, but basic wedge. I have to say what I love most is probably that beautiful robin egg blue. And, of course, the peep toe!

4″ cork-print heel. Insole padded for comfort. Manmade materials.
