While browsing around online for a new cashmere sweater at Banana Republic yesterday, I noticed a new shop from Gap Inc. called Piperlime. And guess what? It’s a shoe shop! Piperlime stocks hundreds of shoe brands from Kenneth Cole to Betsey Johnson for women, men and kids. And to top it off, their first guest editor is Rachel Zoe, the It-stylist of Hollywood. She will contribute stories on shoe trends and news, currently her tips for fall boots are to try the equestrian look, go for different calf heights, look for round toes or choose a platform heel. Piperlime offers free shipping and returns and 10% off your first purchase if you use a credit card from any Gap Inc store. I’m not sure yet if Piperlime will remain a web based only shop like Zappos or if they will have actual stores. One more great thing about this site is that they are partnering with the non-profit Soles4Souls, whose mission is to impact the lives of those in need with the gift of shoes. I’m definitely going to give Piperlime a try for my next shoe purchase, I need a new pair of everyday black pumps, I might go for the Franco Sarto Impala. I love pointy toes and bows and I don’t want to spend a ton of money so I think they are perfect!
