First it was Target’s Harlem store, now it’s Payless.
Isabel Toledo, perhaps better known for designing Michelle Obama’s presidential inauguration dress, has launched an affordable collection at the popular off-price shoe retailer.

Christian Siriano for Payless. alice + olivia for Payless. Lela Rose for Payless.
If you haven’t checked out either of these designer summer collections, you might just be pleasantly surprised.
When you think of “Sex and The City 2,” Payless ShoeSource probably hardly ever comes to mind.
But after today, it just might. Patricia Field, costume designer for the movie, has designed a SATC2-inspired piece for the retail shoe chain.
You may not want to wear their shoes, but you should try and stop by a Payless store soon.
From now until December 31, they’re offering this reusable shopping bag for $1.99.
Payless will donate $1 – the cost to plant one tree — from each bag sale to the Plant a Billion Trees campaign.
Their target is to plant 100,000 trees through program.
That’s pretty awesome!
When news of Christian Siriano’s collection for Payless broke, the buzz was almost deafening.
With New York Fashion Week over and done, I can’t help but wonder how the Project Runway winner will cope where sales are concerned.
The way I see it, in the end, it will be the discriminating fashionista who determines the fate of the Payless-Siriano partnership.
Will she make the trek to the traditionally low priced footwear store to snap up Christian’s collection?
Only time will tell.
