Mass e-tailer Piperlime recently set up shop in New York City's SoHo, showing shoppers that it is now home to more than just shoes. The site's foray into selling apparel was celebrated Tuesday night by the arrival of Whitney Eve, the clothing line by MTV-star-turned-designer Whitney Port. Before the party was over, Port dished about shoes, design, and the one thing that's on her wish list right now!
Q: You're a style leader for young girls -- especially the TeenVogue reader. How do you bring your own style to this collection?
I love TeenVogue! I got my start there! With Whitney Eve, I really wanted to dress everyday girls. I wanted it to be a more sophisticated than just casualwear, but be comfortable at the same time. All the fabrics are easy fabrics, they can be dressed up or dressed down.
Q: I can buy one pair of shoes this season. What are they?
Oh my gosh! Doc Marten makes these worn-in, navy leather boots that I just got and I wear them every week. Even if I'm going out at night somewhere, I'm wearing my Doc Martens.
Q: Your dress is great. Is this your own design?
This is Whitney Eve! This was originally a long gown that I wore to a charity function a while back, but I wanted to make it more wearable and accessible, so we just chopped it!
Q: And the shoes?
My shoes are Cynthia Vincent from Piperlime.
Q: We have to admit, we're a little jealous of you -- you have it all! Is there anything you don't have that you want?
A home! I'm like a gypsy! This summer, I gave up my apartment in New York, so I moved back to LA. I've been staying at a bedroom in my parent's house, which is nice for a week, but then you need to get out!
Q: Where would this "dream house" be?
I just want a home anywhere. I want my own home and my own pillow!

Whit has since found her home! She tweeted on the 20th:
"Aaaaah!!! I am the proud renter of a home in LA!!! Starting to move in now!!!"
and again on the 24th: "Woke up in my new house! Loving it!!"
