Stacey Bendet’s Babies

…are exactly what I’ll be having, as soon as I get the chance.

If you’re confused, it’s okay. Stacey Bendet is the head designer of amazing, swoon-worthy brand alice + olivia. While their stuff is a little out of my price range at retail… Her capsule collection of shoes for Payless is as close as I need to get to be totally smitten.

(Plus, any girl who goes to a BusinessWeek event looking fabulous, yet fiercely intellectual… Has my heart until I die.)

So, back to Payless. You might remember her insane (yet amazing) super neon platforms and polka dotted flats from last fall, yes?

Well, spring has sprung! And so have a ton of platform sandals made from pure sex for you to adore and easy prices. All courtesy of Stacey Bendet. (And Payless, I guess…)

I know that no one sees the inside of a shoe… That often, anyway… But the bright pink interior makes me giddy.

Maybe it’s just me… But the cut of the rubber on the toe combined with the linen upper make me feel like this is a much more playful shoe that your typical “canvas sneaker”… It’s like resort-chic meets scruffy rebel. (Psst… These sneaks in black and silver are on sale big time! See the bottom of this post for deets!)

Stacey’s signature sky-high platform wedges have arrived. Though, in my opinion, these are only the 2nd sexiest of the bunch. The winners are next…

SWOON. It takes a saucy you-know-what to rock these 4″ platform sandals. I love the black & white ones so much, and for $35… Come on. How could I not?

Sigh.

In other news, when the new styles come in, I think we all know what happens next…
