I was so excited for Christian Siriano's spring 2011 Payless line, after seeing a runway sneak peek on the fashion blogs. Sky high architectural heeled platforms fit for a stroll on Mars had me salivating and checking the Payless site often for their debut.
Needless to say I was very disappointed when I logged onto the site today and saw this degraded offering of the original concepts.
I know that this is how a lot of fashion lovers feel about all affordable designer collaborations. And while I'll argue that I have found many of the designer collabs to be covetable, the sentiment is more than understood. If I'm craving couture I need to save my pennies, because the commonplace shopper just doesn't get it.
