Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Before we get down to the frosty ground, let’s make sure your neck stays nice and cozy! We’ve put all of Ben Alder’s woolen goods on sale, including the stripe-a-licious Aberdeen Scarf:

Facing cold weather is much more fun when you have something pretty keeping you toasty! Tempting at $78, the Aberdeen Scarf is irresistible at $58!

What’s that you say? “Boots, give me boots!” Then boots you shall have! First up, Trippen’s well-named Treasure:

Another ankle boot sure to turn heads (but not ankles) is Pep Monjo’s Cora:

The indigo blue leather is such a gorgeous shade! Tasty at $442, it’s scrumptious at $342!

For you urban cowgirls out there, kick up your stylish heels in the Argila Madrid:

You’ll get compliments ’til the cows come home! (We also have the Madrid in black.) Sassy at $468, they’re seriously kickass at $234!

Hoping for a bootie with more feminine wiles? Then turn up the heat in Cydwoq’s Caution:

Faux croc leather in luscious green + slingback styling + 2″ resin heel = steamy sex appeal! Spicy at $326, it’s sizzling at $163!

If you’re thinking, “Perfectly lovely, but what I need is a tall boot,” then Trippen’s fantastic Mexico might be just the ticket:

Red boots are GO! (But in case you prefer brown, we have that, too!) Stellar at $458, they’re out of this world at $229!

Of course, the best remedy for the cold is nature’s insulator: fur! Consider cozying up to the fur-lined version of Fiorentini + Baker’s Emmy:

Wrap up your gift list!

Ped fans, you may not think of us as a “one-stop shop,” but if you have daughters, mothers, aunts, sisters, or simply female friends you want to make smile this season, we’re confident of the pleasing power of Ped presents! Here are just a few ideas to brighten your favorite gals’ holidays:

When you’re mystified by your recipient’s size, there’s no need to scratch your head. Simply give her something toasty to wrap around her neck, like Ben Alder’s Edinburgh Scarf:

Such stripe-tastic fun, this soft scarf is knit from the finest Scottish new wool! One size makes everyone look stylish! We’re in love with this smashing Blue/Lemon/Fuchsia version, but Ped also offers the Edinburgh in three other great color combinations!

Word to the wise gift giver: Ben Alder also knits wonderful striped gloves!

Make her fingers festive and protect them from frostbite! If purple and green don’t float her boat, perhaps Ben Alder’s other color combos will make her heart set sail.

As long as we’re keeping the extremities warm, let’s make sure the tootsies stay toasty! Socks can make a sensational present, especially when they come from Antipast:

Everything Antipast designs is like a party for your toes, but we are especially crazy about the Winter Skier Socks. They are so clever! Beneath a snowy sky of polka dots, a tiny skier whooshes down a mountain of stripes!

We also have a new kid on the sock block: Bonne Maison! Why not give your gal the gift of a garden walk with Bonne Maison’s Autumn Flower Knee High:

This carmine version makes our hearts sing, but perhaps the honey or aged green options are more in tune with your gal.

If you want to up the ante with heating things up, a Sophie Digard work of wearable art is an excellent way to express your affection.

Sophie’s hand-crocheted Cercle Pop Scarf, for instance, is guaranteed to thrill! When she’s not wearing this stunner, your lucky recipient may opt to keep it out where she can simply look at it!

Another gift every woman welcomes is a fantastic bag. Cydwoq offers beautiful ways to help her haul it all through the day!

We just got in two new versions of Cydwoq’s terrific Leather Market Sack! Isn’t this navy and rust argyle pattern to die for? (We’re adding it to our own wish list!) The olive herringbone option is equally gorgeous!

Of course, if you really want to “wow” her, something sparkly from Jamie Joseph is just the thing!

The gold and diamond treatment of Jamie Joseph’s 14kt Gold Organic Circle Necklace is a sure-fire way to kiss holiday doldrums and winter blues goodbye!

As always, there are more goodies at Ped’s main site, so let your stylish thoughts count as you spread the love!

By the way, if you want to make absolutely sure the women in your life will like their gifts, invite them to browse the Ped site and click “add to favorites” for whatever strikes their fancy. Once they’ve finished making selections, they can share the list with you via email. That way the pressure’s off, and happiness is on!

(Psst, the Sweet Treat this week, Sophie Digard’s Velvet Lune Scarf,  would make a fabulous gift, too, even if it’s just to deserving you! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site. When you land at the Velvet Lune Scarf’s page, just pop it in your shopping bag to get 20% off!)

Cozy up to Ben Alder scarves and gloves

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Brrrr! Ped fans, in the ominous words of Game of Thrones, “Winter is coming.”

But you know what? Now that we’ve added the beautiful Scottish woollies of Ben Alder to Ped’s lineup, we’re looking forward to chilly days! 

BenAlder2013lg

Named for the highest mountain in the Scottish Highlands, Ben Alder began in 1991, when Sergio Beccuti, an italian knitwear designer fascinated by all things Scots, decided to travel through the villages of Scotland in search of ways to combine his Italian taste in fashion with the native Scottish colors, patterns, and smells he’d come to love. His goal was and still is to work with traditional looms and small factories, and to knit goods using only the purest new wool.

When we discovered Ben Alder at the Paris Accessories Show last year, we fell madly in love with the quality of the virgin wool and the zesty striped patterns. It takes a lot to turn our heads (our standards are high—probably even higher than Ben Alder’s namesake!), so you know these scarves and gloves are truly something special! 

So get your stripes on for the frosty days ahead! The weather outside is frightful delightful!
