Christian Siriano's holiday collection for Payless has turned up online, and while we're not shrieking with crazy joy, they're super cheap and not un-cute. (We love Siriano's runway shoes and wish Payless would stop pulling the teeth out of the designs, but we guess people shopping for $30 shoes can't be choosers.) There are two pair of flats with zippers on the toes, two boots with gold zipper details, and a pair of black and gold pumps and shiny black strappy sandals, both with little gold zippers up the backs. Nothing's more than $49.99, and the heels have a cone shape that is really cute, even if they're shorter than we'd hoped. The black and gold heels and teal boots have 4" heels, while the peep-toe boots and strappy sandals top out at 3.5". There are also four bags in the collection.
