Fashion Roundup: The 3 Best and 3 Worst Christian Siriano for Payless Shoes

While some might say Christian Siriano has fallen from grace with his Payless shoe line--since he won the fourth season of Project Runway, I would politely disagree. While not considered a particularly stellar style babylon, Payless Shoes is trying hard to keep up with the cool kids. Many of their shoes have high-end appeal and they offer amazing discounts like 30% of sitewide (ZZ30GREEN TODAY ONLY). Take that DSW. My favorite thing about Payless is the prices and the variety of shoe sizes. (Being a size 5 can be a real b*tch as far as finding little people shoes.)

Here is the nitty gritty on the 3 Best and 3 Worst Christian Siriano for Payless Shoes (and they all come in size 5!):


1.) Women's Josephine Lace Up Pump, $19.99
This shoe is gorgeous. C'mon. A lace-up lilac pump gives me all the fashion feels. Pretty, delicate and so perfect for a summer wedding, this showstopper is under $20. I love the little perforated details and the faux suede.

Pairs well with a flowy boho maxi dress, pencil skirt and blouse or a long sleeve shift dress

2.) Women's Solstice High Wedge, $29.99
Gurl, this is such a cute wedge. A floral print detail just screams spring fashion moment. The woven trim and high platform are just too irresistible. Plus, the ankle strap adds flirty-fun appeal.

Pairs well with a summer skater dress, high waisted denim shorts or bell bottom jeans, rompers

3.) Women's Kurfew Block Mule Heel, $24.99
Is it legal to marry a shoe? This sky-high mule heel with a peep toe in a sandy shade is just too much happiness wrapped up in one punchy platform.

Pairs well with a jumpsuit, midi dress or shift dress


1.) Women's Axiom Buckle Flat, $19.99
This granny witch shoe is not a personal favorite. A bounty of buckles doesn't necessarily add more style power to an otherwise odd pointy ballet flat.

Pairs well with a broom and a cauldron

2.) Women's Runway Sequin Mule, $39.99
I don't know who would buy this slip-on sequin disaster. Part Hugh Hefner, part Barry Manilow, this dazzling footwear is sure to win stares at the nursing home buffet.

Pairs well with a beloved mumu or housecoat

Loafers. Ugh. This women's (?) mule loafer sure does look like a man's shoe. Also, it's just super ugo. 

Pairs well with a nautical outfit or house robe (Maybe khaki shorts or skinny jeans---if you're going to the Hamptons and lost all your other luggage)
