Step into the green!

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Ped fans! It’s the perfect day to dream of all things green (especially because it’s still white outside the window for many of you winter-weary friends). To put spring in your step, here are a quartet of lovely green shoes, like a four-leaf clover for your feet!

One of our all-time favorite casual shoes is the Trippen Eccentric, which is at its quirky best in forest green:

Funky, fun, and incredibly comfortable! Your feet will feel so terrific in the Eccentric you may just leap around like a leprechaun!

Another easy-going green shoe is the Cliff Dweller Canoe, which exudes  a delightful retro vibe:

The hatched embossing on the leather keeps things interesting, while the jade color calls to mind the lush green grass of summertime! Aaaahhhh!

Perhaps you live somewhere that’s already warm or simply want to prepare for the sunny days that are right around the corner. If so, consider buckling up Chie Mihara’s Temoti:

Isn’t that pine color cool and fresh? The contrasting natural edge of the leather gives the penny-loafer styling of this sandal extra oomph! We love, love, love it!

The fourth leaf on our green clover could be extra lucky for you if you’re the right size because the gorgeous Cydwoq Caution is on sale!

This slingback spans the seasons and is simultaneously edgy, sophisticated, and chic! Fantastic at $326, it’s a steal-and-a-half at only $149! (Gorgeous green on your feet and extra green in your bank account! Lucky!)

Hope the luck of the Irish is with you today and every day!

(By the way, in case you didn’t see this week’s Sweet Treat below, it’s the drop-dead beautiful Chie Mihara Amor!

Party on!

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

It’s that time of year, Ped fans, when your inbox starts to overflow with invitations to holiday shindigs. No doubt, your favorite LBD will get a workout, night after sparkly night! But what to put on your feet to make sure you’re still standing comfortably after all those hours of socializing while quaffing eggnog, wassail, and champagne?

Ped to the rescue with a few festive ways to keep your dogs from howling at the moon!

Chie Mihara knows all about letting your inner girly girl out to shine without sacrificing your soles (and arches and toes). One of the prettiest shoes of the season is the Chie Mihara Kitaro:

Ooooh, we adore the textured gold leather trim with the blue suede heel and brown suede toe! What a way to add color and sparkle to a little black dress!

Colorful suede also makes the Accessoire Doisneu a welcome guest at any party:

Gorgeous and soooooo comfortable! This beauty’s suede-covered platform slopes from 1.75″ in back to .75″ up front, making the pitch a delightful 1″! And the stylized rosette is beyond chic! (We adore the “grenat” (garnet) version pictured here, but the Doisneau also comes in amethyst.)

Another flower-adorned shoe that will have you shining is Chie Mihara’s Karta:

This glittery oxford is tied up and ready for cocktails! (We also offer the Karta in a red that’s as pretty as a poinsettia.)

If you’re looking for something sparkly but a little airier, you’re guaranteed to wow in Cydwoq’s Gaudi:

Hi ho, silver! In this gorgeous sandal, you’ll turn every head in the room. (And those behind you can swoon over the design on the etched heel!)

Perhaps you like your metallics a little more low-key. If so, say hello to Cydwoq’s understated yet oh-so chic Fluid:

The Fluid is perfect for when you need to go straight from work out for evening drinks—it makes the transition in the most fluid and stylish way!

Another work-to-play knockout is Cydwoq’s strap-a-licious Young:

The Young is so very sexy but in a socially acceptable way! (Make sure you click “Views” to see the saucy corset-like closure in back.)

The same closure adds even more fuel to the fiery hotness of Cydwoq’s Knee, which is ideal if you want to party in a dressy ankle boot:

 

Isn’t that burnt-out paisley leather breathtaking? The Knee is guaranteed to make you the modern and edgy belle of the ball!

For you Ped fans whose style is more funky than femme, consider rocking the holiday cocktails in Cydwoq’s Love Ankle Boot:

 

We love the idea of wearing an LBD with this black and red badass beauty! You’ll light hearts on fire! (Where you can roast some chestnuts…)

As usual, there are more ways to make your feet festive over at Ped’s main site (don’t miss Cydwoq’s Skate and Rotate, which we showed you a few posts back).

‘Tis the season to take your tootsies out on the town!

 

Make it work! Color in the picture…

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Ped fans, we hear it all the time: “I love those shoes, but I’m not sure what I’d wear them with…” We understand—the last thing you want is to buy a knockout pair of shoes only to have them languish in the closet! But chances are even the most offbeat color or bold design is easier to wear than you think. Here are a few ideas for how to make things work.

Hot summer in the city

Everyone at Ped HQ has fallen for Chie Mihara’s Hito! Don’t fear the yellow platform sandal—it’s a great way to make an outfit POP! Ped fan Ruby Esperita, who came up with all these outfits, also adds the 49 Square Miles Reed Hobo and the Pepita Eleanora necklace to make a look that’s chic yet fun for a summer afternoon in the city.

Maybe you’re a little more laid back, in which case you probably think metallics are too dressy. Think again:
Picnic in the park
Accessoires’s cuter-than-cute Iseult sandal may have a metallic sheen, but that doesn’t mean it can’t go casual! We’re crazy about this outfit’s mix of colorful patterns (the top has a subtle stripe) that gets extra sass from Sophie Digard’s Three Flower Brooch and Mia Zia’s Willow Scarf.

On the other hand, you may prefer your style more muted. Even so, you can still wear a sandal boot and have it look smashing:

Easy sophistication for the sightseer
Argila’s Jolene works perfectly with the quiet sophistication of this outfit, ideal for strolling along the Left Bank in Paris or just meeting your friends for brunch on Sunday. Karin Wagner’s Edelweiss Brooch adds a little something without going overboard, and 49 Square Miles Levine Crossbody bag is a beautiful way to keep your goods at hand.

All these outfits were created at Polyvore.com, which offers a wonderful way to try out items together when you’re shopping online. It’s also just plain fun! So, if you fall in love with a shoe, don’t resist; in the words of Tim Gunn, you can “make it work.”

(By the way, we’re pretty sure you could make lots of things work with this week’s “sweet treat,” Cordani’s Erin. Just click “be sweet to your feet” in the top right corner of any Ped page to get 20% off this fresh espadrille platform!)
