What I'm Wearing: Sperry Top-Sider Ladyfish Boot

In addition to the Chadsworth Boots that I showed you earlier, Sperry Top-Sider kindly sent me their Ladyfish Boot, a new fall twist on the classic Sperry Top-Sider boat shoe. I was instantly attracted to this boot in photos (it's been featured in Teen Vogue and Lucky magazine) but in person, I had a hard time making them work with my wardrobe. Here, I paired them with a Merona for Target shirt, Forever 21 sweater, 7 For All Mankind jeans, and Linea Pelle via hobo. Part preppy, part sporty, this style-hybrid is something you will either love or hate. If you like the look, these boots are available in 5 colors and range in price from $98 - $129 at

Check back tomorrow when one lucky reader will have a chance to win their very own pair of Sperry Top-Sider boots!

Christian Siriano for Payless Holiday 2010 Collection

The Christian Siriano for Payless Holiday 2010 Collection is out and it's hot! I love the Mena Dress Boot ($59.99), named for Siriano's muse/friend Mena Suvari, or so he told his Twitter followers. The Alexandra Exotic Strappy Sandal ($44.99) comes in red or blue and boasts a zipper-back detail and bold blue sole, while the Alexa Satin Peep-Toe Pump ($44.99) looks like it could be leg-lengthening and comfortable at the same time with that hidden platform and chunky heel. There are also two handbags, including a chain-link purse that's perfect for holiday parties. Most styles are available now at Check out bigger photos after the jump - what do you think?
