What's in Store at Payless, summer accessories

I haven’t been to Payless in what seems like forever. And why would I, I’m still going strong with Thrifty Threads 365. However, I was out with my cousin and she wanted to pop into the affordable shoe chain to find some sandals. While she was browsing, I was focused on the prices because in the past I remember being amazed at a $60 price tag for one of the designer collaboration shoes. I mean, it’s Payless, is anyone really going to pay that much?!
Luckily on this visit, I wasn’t dumbfounded by the prices and I saw a few cute shoes and accessories for summer.

Thrifty Threads: Peter Som for Kohl’s Meets Vintage

Thrifty Threads 365 is a fashion challenge where I will only thrift shop for an entire year. I’ll show you how it’s easy and wallet friendly to satisfy your style needs with secondhand finds. For full details, check the original post here
I remember checking out the Peter Som DesignNation for Kohl’s line last year and I was smitten. The easy, breezy look {Som says the line was inspired by St. Barths!} was just my style and there was a white moto jacket I had to have.
Fast forward months later and the line is finally available. I don’t have the moto jacket, but Kohl’s was awesome enough to send over a few pieces from the line. And once again, I’m in love. While I prefer a sweet frock or black skinny jeans, I was amazed to find I fell in love with the Peter Som printed pants and I got my moto fix with an asymmetrical zipper vest.
