Piperlime is a wonderland of shoes, bags, jewelry, and now clothes that I could get lost in for days. Its like my Narnia. Coming up with my absolute favorites was difficult, but obviously necessary. My favorite labels this season turned out to be Trina Turk and Marc by Marc Jacobs. I found great sequin tops that will keep sparkling long after New Years Eve, coats in interesting cuts to keep away the winter blues, ruffled dresses, enough booties and platforms to keep you kicking, and some great accessories. My favorites are the electric blue platforms by Rock and Republic, and House of Harlow’s Gladiator Cuff. This is how a lady shows off her punk rock side without looking gothic.
Investment Piece: Nude Pumps December 18, 2009
One of the best accessories I’ve bought this year was a pair of nude pumps (Banana Republic, left). My second choice was the Nine West Rocha, right. They go with EVERYTHING, and I actually mean it. That bright skirt you can’t match shoes to? Nude pumps. Tired of choosing between black and brown? Nude pumps. Transitioning from college sweatshirts to business casual? Nude pumps. The black printed flapper dress (don’t laugh) that I bought and didn’t look right with anything else? Nude pumps. They have revolutionized my wardrobe. Sophisticated and elegant, appropriate for work or a night out, jeans or a dress. They make your legs look a mile long. I promise you, you will find that these go with every piece of clothing in your closet.
