Abaete's fall collection for Payless has finally arrived, and its...tacky. Again. I don't understand why Laura Poretzky just can't seem to get her Payless line right. It's truly a disappointment. I suppose that the shoes are, in fact, more interesting than the usual Payless shoes, and a few of them are actually quite attractive. Yet the patent leather and lucite and metallic combination just isn't doing much for me. Too many trends on a little shoe.
Alright, so I'm not too impressed with Abaete for Payless. Let's hope that Lela Rose and Patricia Field's lines will be much better. I definitely trust Patricia to do a good job (Have you seen Sex & the City and The Devil Wears Prada? The woman's a genius!), but I don't know very much about Lela Rose. As for Abaete, well, let's just say I've given up.
