Washington, DC (Vocus) August 7, 2009
If there is one thing on shoppers’ minds this season, it’s affordability. Hence, Kassie Rempel, the owner of the online designer shoe boutique, SimplySoles.com and creator of Kassie’s Closet has expanded her exclusive lillybee line of shoes and handbags, which is created with style, comfort and budgets in mind.
Besides highlighting budget friendly fashions, Kassie also sees a move toward luscious textures this fall and winter. Suede shoes by top women’s shoe designer, Bettye Muller and Butter and a distressed short leather boot by the popular FRYE line round out her collection of sharply edited offerings. Other trends include croc and ostrich print detailing, adornments such as ruffles, grommets and bows as well as a move toward a very simple, clean look in rich colors.
“On a cost-per-wear basis, shoes are one of the best investments in your wardrobe. Besides the perfect black dress, classic white shirt and flattering pair of jeans, a pair of timeless shoes will last several seasons and transform your current wardrobe from fair to fab,” says Rempel.
The company offers a shoe recycling program that benefits Suited for Change, a local non-profit DC-based organization that helps women in transition dress for success. Customers from around the country can make a gently worn shoe donation and receive a 10% discount on their next purchase from SimplySoles.com.
Frustrated by the poor selection of shoes offered for sale online and in fashion catalogs, Rempel turned her passion for shoes into a successful business and founded SimplySoles in 2004 with the hopes that other women would appreciate shopping for designer shoes from the comforts of home. Visitors to the site or the store can register to receive the email newsletter giving them the inside scoop on private sales and more. The site offers free shipping on all orders of $75 or more.
