Outfits in cahoots with the boots

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Ped fans, we know how it is. Sometimes a style will catch your eye, but you can’t quite envision how it would work with your daily wardrobe. Maybe you think gold is strictly for after-five, or those edgy zippered boots seem too out there for running errands. Or maybe you want to snazz up what you wear, but you’re not sure where to start.

We’re here to help! Below are a few ideas for how to make the most of some of our best autumn boots.

Whether you’re walking the dog, meeting friends for a casual lunch, going to a parent-teacher meeting, or doing all three in the same day, Trippen’s Onion Boot makes a great companion:

Walk in the park

The Onion is sassy with this laid-back outfit, but it works equally well with the following throw-it-on-and-go look, which we’ve paired with another zipper-iffic Trippen boot, the Helix:

Studious but fun

As we often say, the shoes don’t have to match the outfit, they just have to “go.” We love the interplay of textures and patterns among the sweater, skirt, and Sophie Digard Puzzle Scarf, and the Helix fits right in, even though it’s brown!

If you want to play up its edginess, though, the Helix would work well with this arty casual outfit we put together with the Trippen Amber:

The art of casual

 

We’ve added the Sophie Digard Dream Scarf to this look that’s perfect for weekend gallery hopping.

The Amber is such a comfortable way to make a statement that it would also sing with the following outfit, ideal for college students and profs, graphic designers, architects, or anyone else who likes to get creative with what they wear! We’ve pulled out the stops by suggesting either the Trippen Foam or Cydwoq Pitstop as boot options!

Cutting edge and cute
We love the mix of round and angled shapes, so we tossed in the Sophie Digard Manouche Scarf for good measure!

Are we getting too edgy for your taste? Well, you might be surprised to discover both the Trippen Foam and Cydwoq Pitstop also work with this more subdued (but still fun) outfit, which we’ve put with the Argila Katniss:

Saturday afternoon at the museum
We are crazy about the deep green Katniss with this skirt, and the red Cydwoq Bright Bag keeps things lively!

But what if you have a job that requires something dressier, you ask? Well, the Katniss would be equally at home with the following look, guaranteed to wow clients, which we’ve enhanced with Chie Mihara’s stunning Dalatchi:

Wow the clients!

How cool does the wool-and-leather woven shaft of the Dalatchi look with that skirt? Of course, Cydwoq’s Bright Bag in black is welcome at any meeting!

The Chie Mihara Dalatchi and Cydwoq Bright Bag would also be sensational with the following ensemble, which epitomizes how you don’t need a lot of bells and whistless to look impeccably chic! Ideal for going straight from the office out for cocktails and dinner, this outfit is the perfect setting for Cydwoq’s Involve ankle boot:

The Simple Sophisticate

Is your imagination sparked? We hope so! There are so many terrific ways to wear Ped’s styles!

Incidentally, all of the outfits above were created using Polyvore, which is a great way to try out wardrobe ideas without having to try everything on.

The rule to remember: Always have fun with how you dress!

Precious metals

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

Shimmer, shine, gleam, and glimmer! Ped fans, one of the zingiest trends right now is metallic leather!

Once relegated to after-5 formality, metallics now come out to play in daytime designs that radiate like the sun! This season, Ped has all kinds of ways to make your toes twinkle, so let’s take a look! (You might want to get out your sunglasses.)

Longtime Ped fans know how much I adore my golden Cydwoq Tomcat sandals, so imagine my excitement over Cydwoq’s gleaming new Minimalist:

This lightweight and fluid flat gives a whole new meaning to the term “quick silver.” As lovely as a summer day is long, the Minimalist lets you dash from here to there like Mercury!

On a darker but no less beautiful note, the Trippen Venus is another luminous flat:

The saucy ankle strap adds sex appeal to the Venus‘s walk-anywhere-and-everywhere practicality. This copper cutie is like a lucky penny!

For its part, Argila performs style alchemy by mixing metallics with other leathers this season. The Marisol is one of the glowing results:

The brass buckle adds extra shine to the black and silver party! This sandal also has a hidden secret: an internal wedge at the heel that keeps your foot feeling effervescent in this flat!

Argila designer Pep Monjo conjures similar magic in his eponymous line. Sigh with us over the gorgeousness of Pep Monjo’s Daniella:

The combo of mocha and platinum leathers is stunning! The Daniella is Laura’s fave this season—but she didn’t act fast enough, and now her size is gone. (Hello, Laura, early bird? Worm? You know how things go at Ped!)

We realize many of you want to add a few inches to your height, in which case, check out the Trippen Tough:

This steely beauty may be named Tough, but its comfort is cushy because it stands on Trippen’s famous t-shaped rubber wedge! The zip up the back? Extra gleaming steam!

Another height-enhancing sparkler is Trippen’s Orinoco:

Wooden soles of wonder! The Orinoco‘s metallic leather is a knockout shade of bronze, and its multi-colored nail heads add the perfect punctuation. Clog me, please!

Argila also offers a heeled sandal to make your style golden. Say hello to the Vanessa:

What a way to bring traffic to a halt! We love the interplay of the pinked edges of the platinum leather and the platinum-piped curves of the brown!

Any of the above styles can easily stroll from an afternoon in the park out for a night on the town. But if you really want to dress things up and bring the house down, then buckle up Chie Mihara’s Noche!

You’ll put a glint in the eye of everyone who sees you! The gold-flecked textured lapis leather contrasts beautifully with the perforated matte red leather rosette on the toe! Glimmering and glam-tastic!

As always, there are more ways to sparkle and shine over at Ped’s main site, so let your shoes be as scintillating as your conversation! It’s a golden age for metallics!

(Psst, in case you missed it below, this week’s Sweet Treat is the Chie Mihara Ruper. Just click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site to arrive at the Ruper with the special designation. Then simply add it to your bag to receive 20% off at checkout.)

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!)

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!
