Piperlime Pick of the Week!

There's just something about a statement shoe that always gets me going - and today, we've got two Piperlime Picks that perfectly fit the bill.

Even with the most outrageous of colors or designs, if you keep the rest of your outfit and accessories somewhat simple, most people can actually pull off a crazy shoe quite well.

Today's first Pick has a subdued color palette, but a more unique shape and a big embellishment.

Dodie by Corso Como - SALE $119.99

I know what you're thinking... "Gosh, I could never wear those." But, I assure you that you could! Or if these aren't quite your style, I know you could pull something off that is equally as bold!

I'd love to wear these with a bright yellow pencil dress (did anyone happen to see Kristen Bell on Jay Leno last night? Perfect dress... I'll add a picture here as soon as I can find one), black tights, and a black swing coat.

My second pick is just the opposite, bright colors in a block pattern, but on a more traditional shape.

Bellai by Vince Camuto - SALE $79.99

To make sure you don't knock anyone out with too many colors (although for me, there's almost no such thing), this pair would work well with a black tights, a black tulip skirt, and a pretty grey silk top!

Wish I had the time to make some Polyvore outfits for you, but I've got many errands to run and projects to finish!!! (More on my project-ing next week, so stay tuned!)


Right now, on Piperlime, (I'm not sure for how long) you can add items from any of their sister sites (Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy) to your Piperlime order and get the whole order sent to you with NO SHIPPING COSTS. I'm not sure if this is a promotional event, but it sure sounds tempting! (Sometimes I think chopping off my hands will be the only way to prevent me from shopping online... )

Have a great weekend, Dolls! Buy something pretty in my honor!

I am in love with the second pair. Of course, it's those heels that get me every time! They'd be too cute as a ballet flat as well!
