Entertainment Network this past awards season. "I felt fantastic in my Starlet shoes. They are fabulously styled, looked fantastic with my gown, and were easy and comfortable to wear." Jones Reynolds, a well-recognized style expert, is renowned for her fashion-at-a-value sensibility, her love of shoes and has been a long-time supporter of the mix-and-match trend, where people are creating their own personal style by combining high-end designer looks with inexpensive items. "The Wall Street Journal reported on this trend last fall at Spring Fashion Week and it continues to gain strong momentum," said Jones Reynolds. "The rules of fashion today are that there are no rules -- you should wear what you feel good in and what brings out your unique style," she said. Jones Reynolds is helping women across America create their own style without the high price. The Starlet JetSet is one of three dress styles under $25 in the Starlet Spring Collection available exclusively at Payless ShoeSource. The Starlet JetSet is available on payless.com in March; the rest of the Starlet Spring line will hit Payless stores and payless.com in April. Jones Reynolds worked hand-in-hand with the Payless designers to create her Starlet Spring Collection, which features the latest dress shoe trends of the season including slides, T and ankle straps; embellishments like bows, brooches and jewels; and the hottest colors of spring -- metallics and foils -- all done up on what Jones Reynolds refers to as the perfect heel that's not too high, not too low.
