Soho & Nolita NYC Stores September 2012. Piperlime and Christian Siriano

September 16th, 2012

With the ever-changing retail landscape of Soho and Nolita, it was time to troll the streets and see what’s new (what’s belly up) and whats wortwhile. Today we went to the Piperlime and Christian Siriano stores, both of which opened in past 3 weeks.

Piperlime: This fresh big store– the only bricks and morter one of this popular on-line company — offers mid range women’s apparel, accessories and footwear. Here you wont find originality, but rather items from Rachel Zoe,   Splendid, Olivia Palermo, BCBG and about 12 other designers. A good one-stop shopping excursion in lieu of a visit to Bloomies. The large shoes and boots section has worthwhile offerings in the $150- $300 price point. Overall: good addition to Soho for those who find the area overrun with chains and unaffordable boutiques. Piperlime, 121 Wooster St, between Prince and Spring

Christian Siriano: High hopes dashed with this store.Felt  like so many of the individual boutiques (with short lives) in NYC. Designer’s inspiration vs what women want to wear. At first glance, this small store does not even inspire a thorough glance.  Dark and drab dresses and separates in the $300 – $600 category.  Funny, but the online store feels fresher. Feh. Christian Siriano, 252 Elizabeth Street

Why take a Soho & Nolita Shopping Tour with Shop Gotham NYC Shopping Tours

June 22nd, 2011

Recent reviews from Citysearch:

1)”GREAT Shopping program. highly recommend. Last weekend,my girlfriend and I took the Soho tour. Although we live in the Westchester, we dont know that area and were determined to “edge up” our wardrobe. the shops we were taken to were oh so interesting and we found the guide Molly to be as charming and knowledgable as any host could be. We recommend spending your entire afternoon shopping on your own and using the discounts they provide. We enjoyed it very very much and would have enjoyed the tour for several more hours as well”

2)”Fantastic Fantastic Programs for those who like to shop. Last December, I took my 21 and 23 yrd old daughters to nyc and took a shot at the Garment Center tour. We all simply loved the shopping and the entire experience. So much so that we then booked the Soho tour too! And had a blast ont his one too. Both tour guides were stylish, patient, lovely and oh so charming women. Part of the enjoyment was spending time with them. The programs are so very different. If i had to break it down, one is for “deals” and visiting a side of NYC you really cant do on your own, the other is for “now” fashion, in super cute and well thought out spots. Shop Gotham’s tours are really terrific and professional. Go for it!”
