This weekend was a busy one getting ready for my son’s first day of kindergarden — which aside from school supplies included new undies, socks and shoes. He wears a uniform and there are rules when it comes to color and style so I had to run all over town to get the right ones and in the end, Payless came through for me.
Outfit wise, I dressed up what I already had on and what I had been wearing all weekend: a pair of Old Navy black fitted bermuda shorts, a black sleeveless lace top from Ann Taylor Loft, a pink belt, a blush Last Call by Neiman Marcus crossbody and a pair of leopard print Christian Siriano for Payless flats.
If you don’t know, Christian Siriano won the fourth season of Project Runway and has dressed celebrities such as SJP, Rhianna, Taylor Swift and Emily Blunt to name a few.
I had gone to Payless for my son’s school shoes and what do you know…these leopard flats were calling for me. If it had not been for the cute buckle detail on the sides, I probably would have passed on them, but that sealed the deal for me.
HOWEVER, they run small. I wear a 7 and I tried them on in store quickly and they fit fine. But then I wore them out and wait…they were…snug and they ripped my heels! Very disappointing, but I’m determined to get a 7 1/2 somehow even if I’ve worn them because I really like them.
However, despite the size issue, Payless has a super stylish selection of shoes — I was taken by surprise!
