I love online-surfing at shoe sites to see what gorgeous shoes are being offered out there in world-wide-web-land.
This is evidenced by the favorites folder on my computer (which has at least 50 different online retailers and shoe manufacturers bookmarked for easy perusal). However, in doing so much online window shopping, I sometimes forget about retailers that have a local retail presence in my community.
So, here’s a little peek at some trendy styles that are accessible to tighter budgets. Today’s focus is Payless. In this price range, there may be certain materials substitutions to maintain a lower price-point; things such as glue and synthetics versus stitching and natural leathers which may be found on higher-end shoes. Over the years, I have purchased and worn many so-called ‘low quality’ shoes; shoes that, incidentally, lasted through years of hard use. Although I love several brands that hover in the $90-200 range, I’m definitely willing to take a chance on an attractive shoe at a great price.
So, here’s some of what Payless Shoesource has to offer us this fall:
“Flare Button Flat” $22.99; Trend: Fall Plaids, Oxford details, Faux Maryjane straps.
For those of you on budgets: Yes, you can look trendy without having to switch over to a diet of Macaroni and Cheese.
