Your lifestyle, your quirk
Rejoice, my shoe-loving teen fashionistas, for there is yet another cool footwear source on the fashion scene. If you haven’t already, you should make it a point to check out the footwear line Pink and Pepper.
Pink and Pepper has been popping up in fashion layouts in magazines and on the Internet for a while now, but they recently ran an ad that serves as a formal introduction to the brand in the September 2012 issue of Seventeen. I checked out a few blogs to see what other folks thought about it. From what I read, it appears the brand has been on the scene at least since June, and so far it has been welcomed with open arms (and feet).
There is no official biography about them on their site, but the face of the brand is two hip-looking chicks, Pink and Pepper, who the site’s main page describes as “Style rebels, never afraid of a little experimentation and always ready to reinvent their look.”
The site is cute, and although I didn’t plan on making a purchase, I thought it was odd that you couldn’t buy anything, or get any detailed information about the styles . The list of retailers already carrying the brand online and in store is pretty impressive, but I also found it to be a bit of a drag that you have to leave the Pink and Pepper site to actually do your shopping.
The shoes are very cool, and most of the current trends for footwear are represented. There is a nice selection of both dressy and casual heels, flats, and boots. Although I prefer leather footwear over man-made textiles, I have to say they look well-made, and along with the faux leather there is a pair of Dalmatian print platforms that had me fooled for a minute.
The styles are very trendy and seem to be a bit on the junior side; racked.com said, “Pink and Pepper is actually produced by Fisher Footwear and directed at the 13- to 20-year-old.” Cute as they are, I won’t be making a purchase, but I can see how several styles might be irresistible to a more mature fashionista, and could easily work with the right outfits. These shoes might not be able to go to the workplace if you work in a conservative office, but they are perfect for after-work and weekend fun.
I thought the prices were a bit high compared to other brands that I think are in the same league, but that’s just me. I will say I didn’t see anything over $100, even for the boots, so maybe I am just getting old.
