Shoes at Piperlime

Gap Inc. has launched it's own shoe e-shop called Piperlime. I am assuming to capitalize on the success and compete with e-shops like Zappos. I have to say I did find the site much more appealing and easier to navigate than Zappos. And I found some really cute flats. Soho Lab Crue flat in Chocolate $50.00 and Bronx Dorothee in Navy $75.00.

Trend Alert: Shoes Circa 1920's

I have been noticing a lot of these what I call "cobbler shoes". I did a little researching and found out that these shoes are actually modled after shoes from the 1920's and earlier. If you are like me and fascinated by vintage styles then you are probably dying to get your hands on a pair of these. They are very different from the styles of late but I think they are going to be a big hit. Alumna Spats $298 and The Dean's Booties $398 availabel at Anthropologie.
