Shoesday Tuesday: Christian Siriano x Payless

Dust off your wallets, ladies. The newest Christian Siriano Payless collaboration is here. I check out his newest launches every time a new collection comes around, and it is officially that time of the year. The Estella Platform Bootie is my current shoe crush. It has become my new mission in life to teeter around Manhattan in these impractical — but surprisingly comfortable! — wedge booties. Check out my other picks right here!

If you’re like me, you think that shoes are wearable art. And even if you don’t actually wear them? Still art. Christian Siriano’s shoe collection is ridiculously edgy and straight off the runway. The sizing runs smaller than typical Payless sizes by at least a full size, so I recommend that you size generously or head to the store to try them on. I, of course, head to the store every time there’s something new to scope out. Here are my favorites:

Please don’t head for the hills the second I say the words “velvet” and “back bow” to explain these flats. They’re not your childhood Easter dress reincarnated. The Arabella Pointed Toe Bow Flats could be anyone’s classic day-to-night shoes: plain flats for the office, luxe comfy dinner shoes, and the ultimate anti-heels.

Okay, so these look like the most impractical pumps ever invented, right? Probably. They are so many trendy things happening all at once here that you might look back on this wardrobe choice years from now and cringe. But for now? The Aurora Cap Toe Pumps feature black velvet triangle cutout toes, pink snakeskin print, and a nail stiletto? If you’re going to go crazy, just go for it.

Check out Christian Siriano’s styles on BOGO so you don’t even have to feel bad about picking up multiple pairs.
