I love color. I love heels. Put the two together, and I'm pretty much head over heels. So when my friend Stephanie asked if I wanted to go to Payless Shoe Source on our lunch break -- I didn't have to think twice! I have heard that this store has some great deals and amazing trends, but I haven't gone since I was 11 year-old. Whenever I would think of Payless, my mind went way back to when I chose two pairs of Pro-Wings for my back to school wardrobe instead of one pair of L.A. Gears (My youthul budget-conscious psyche, then, told me that getting two for the price of one was genius. Who cared about the brand? See, even then...).
So like a shoeaholic does in a store full of, well, shoes... I loosened up my heels and roamed the aisles of colorful size 9s, with one foot bare. And then I spotted them! A simple, patent-leather fuschia pump was staring right at me. It was love, I tell ya. I yelled over the aisles to my friend Steph, and my other friend Dre: "O.M.G.! I found them. I am so wearing these tomorrow with my skinny jeans for casual Friday!" I have been feaning for a pair of affordable, brightly colored, patent-leather heels, and these are my new staple addition.
And that is how we found one another. I typically stick to Nine West, Betsey Johnson, Chinese Laundry, Carlos Santana, BCBGirls, or Steve Madden....but c'mon. These were less than $25 and pretty adorable. I will just have to test the quality of Payless shoes. I hope we won't have to split ways....
