Wrap up your gift list!

Monday, December 9th, 2013

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!

Fully woolly

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

With all the spring items arriving at the Ped warehouse, it’s easy to get lost in daydreams about green grass and fresh flowers. But in reality, we know it’s still frosty where many Ped fans live. And when we get chilly, there’s only one thing to do: go woolly!

Wool is truly a wonder fiber—not only does it “breathe” and resist odor, but it also stays warm even when wet. Let’s see a hi-tech synthetic manage all that! Plus, fine wool just feels so good!

Here are a few of Ped’s favorite ways to cozy up against the cold and still stay stylish!

When we think of woolen beauty, we instantly think of the creations of Parisian textile artist Sophie Digard!

Words simply cannot express how gorgeous this Diamond Scarf is! Be sure to use Ped’s “zoom” tool to check out the dazzling chevron pattern framing each of this scarf’s colorful crocheted diamonds.

We especially love it when Sophie gets playful with mixing textiles and adding dimensional elements! How fantastic is this Biscuit Pop Scarf?

Sophie calls the velvet and crocheted baubles at the center of each woolly square “biscuits”—all we know is they are deliciously fun! And like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike!

(Psst, even better, Sophie Digard’s Biscuit Pop Scarf just happens to be this week’s “sweet treat”! Simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the top of any Ped page—including this one—to be transported to the Biscuit Pop Scarf with the magic code that will garner a delightful 20% off when entered at checkout.)

Another of our favorite woolen wonders this season is Epice’s luxurious Chevron Scarf:

Exquisitely loomed from wool and cashmere, this scarf is wide enough to wear as a shawl if your shoulders need a little extra warmth. The colors are luscious, and the hand of this beauty is so, so, so soft!

Another cashmere delight is Mia Zia’s Barcelona Cashmere Scarf:

You won’t want to stop touching this scarf! And because it’s monochromatic, each color option will go with almost any outfit. Plus, Mia Zia’s signature tassels at the corner add spice and whimsy!

Maybe it’s your hands you want to keep toasty! In that case, why not slip them into Antipast’s Waterdrop Gloves?

You better keep these cuties on, though, because they’re so fun sticky fingers just might try to snag them! (Incidentally, they also come in khaki.)

Speaking of fingers, it’s always nice to have the option of keeping them free. Check out these Antipast wool and alpaca mittens that offer the best of both worlds:

Keep your digits nice and cozy until you need them to dial or deal with keys—at which point, simply undo the etched button on the back of each mitten and let your fingers out to play!

Here at Ped HQ, we’re skirt-loving gals, so when the temperature dips, we get out the tights!

Aren’t these Antipast Quilted Stripe Tights FUN? They make staying warm in winter less of a chore and more of a treat! (And, needless to say, there are also Antipast wool socks to rock!)

Because we’re making space for all the warm-weather goods that are arriving daily, many of the above wool lovelies and lots of others over at the main Ped site are currently on sale! So, cozying up to wool at Ped won’t ice your bank account!
