Wrap it up!

Friday, May 30th, 2014

The best way to make any outfit pop? A fab pair of shoes, of course! The second best way? Consider an eye-opening scarf! The best news is it’s not an either/or choice—in fact, we highly recommend both/and, i.e. great shoes, boots, or sandals AND a sensational scarf!

With the mercury on the rise, we’ve stocked up on lightweight cotton and linen scarves for the summer season. They’re airy enough for daytime wear but also ward off the chill after the sun sets. Let’s take a look!

The sunniest of our many sunny scarves is Epice’s Girasole Scarf:

 

It’s as if Epice took the spirit of a bright June morning and wove it into soft cotton to yield this featherweight confection!

If you lean away from florals and more toward bold geometrics, Epice’s super-chic Moderno Scarf may have your name on it:

Perfect for you Ped fans who love all things black, this scarf, which is wide enough to wear as a shawl, is a luxe blend of cotton and linen! (But if you want a juicy dose of color, we also offer the Moderno in a vivid green, which I love!)

Another wrap that dazzles with geometric abstraction is Sophie Digard’s Dream Scarf:

Truly a work of art, this 100% linen scarf is absolutely mesmerizing with its spirals within squares and tiny flower-like suns, all laid out in successive horizontal bands of color along the length of the scarf! Fantastic!

One of the many reasons we love Sophie Digard is her sense of whimsy, which is on beautiful display in the Puzzle Scarf:

We particularly like the unusual edge created by the interlocking puzzle pieces’ shapes, as well as the little open windows scattered across this linen masterpiece! Get ready for a lot of scarf envy!

On days when even a light scarf might seem like too much to wear, you cans still put on the charms of Sophie Digard, by slipping her Petal Necklace around your neck:

A garland of fun! Each linen and velvet crocheted flower on the necklace has a split personality (in the best kind of way) since the back and front offer two different color schemes.

Of course, this is just a taste of our textile delights. There’s more lightweight loveliness to feast your eyes on over at Ped’s main site! Entwine your neck with an airy scarf or necklace, and wrap up your summer style!

(Any one of the beauties above would look fantastic with this week’s Sweet Treat, the Cliff Dweller Emma sandal! Just click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to land at the Emma with the “Sweet Treat” designation. Then pop the sandal in your bag to get 20% off at checkout!)

 

Sweet Treat this week? The Cliff Dweller Emma!

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

We are true blue fans of the Cliff Dweller Emma because it’s the ideal companion for all your summer travel plans (even if they just involve driving the kids around town). To tie up this beauty for 20% off, simply click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most pages at Ped! When you land at the Emma with the “Sweet Treat” designation, add it to your bag to get the 20% discount at checkout!

Time to cruise in the navy!

Sandals for sunny days: Part 3, High heels and platforms

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Ped fans, today we invite you to get high—on sandals, people, on sandals!

For the final leg of our three-part tour through Ped’s strap-happy styles, we continue our ascent by sampling high heels and platforms! In short, it’s time to go tall!

When it comes to kicking things up a notch, Chie Mihara is the queen of adding height while keeping soles happy. Exhibit A: the Chie Mihara Alicante:

What a feast for your feet, from the green suede in back to the woven brown leather up front! And thanks to Chie’s understanding of ergonomics and anatomy, the 3.75″ heel is a treat for your dogs that will keep them from barking and whining, even after hours of walking!

Suede also plays a starring role in Chie Mihara’s well-named Amor! Buckle up and fall in love:

Ay dios mio! The Amor‘s heel is a statuesque 4″, but Chie’s signature footbed and the 1″ platform under the ball of your foot mean it’s a breeze to wear!

If you’re looking for a heel that’s a little less showy but still chic, perhaps the Chie Calenta could be your cup of tea:

This unusual lace-up is one of our personal favorites this season because it’s so versatile, plus the embossed black leather is gorgeous!

Of course, one of our favorite ways to add height without hurt is to step onto a platform, like Coclico’s Merin:

The leather is luscious, the cork is lightweight, and the look is urban without being pretentious! Best of all, because the platform slopes from 2.75″ in back to 1.25″ up front, the pitch comes in at an easy-peasy 1.5″.

Another Coclico wedge that’s won our hearts is the Mosaic:

Such sauciness! This femme fetale brings together the best of an ankle boot with the airiness of a summer sandal. We particularly like the little lip that rims the heel, which offers a little extra security and edge.

Fiorentini + Baker also works wonders with a cork wedge, as evidenced by the knockout Dany:

With attitude to spare, the Dany stops traffic with its be-studded brown suede that extends down over the the black leather-covered platform, which slopes from 3.5″ in back to 1.5″ up front. You don’t have to be a rock star to strut like one!

Finally, let’s again drink in the beauty of the Trippen Mikli, which we first oohed and aahed over in our post celebrating wood soles:

This show stopper is the skyscraper in Ped city, with its sculpted wooden wedge rising a full 4.5″ in back! The 1.5″ lift up front brings the pitch to 3″, and Trippen’s skill at sculpting the footbed to match your sole’s contours means the Mikli feels fantastic when you slide in and crisscross the ankle strap!

The Mikli also just happens to be our Sweet Treat this week, so you can rise and shine for 20% off by clicking “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left at Ped’s main site!

So ends our air-conditioned travels through the many sandals of Ped! We gave you the lay of the land from the flats to the heights, but we didn’t visit all the styles, so feel free to explore on your own at Ped! So many beautiful ways to let your toes play in the sun all summer long!

 

Sandals for sunny days: Part 2, Low heels

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Okay, Ped fans, buckle up for our second foray into summer sandals! In this post, we’ll gain a little altitude as we go sightseeing among the  low heels.

Not only are low heels more comfortable than flats for many women, but they also offer the advantage of standing taller in a crowd! And away we go:

First stop? The Cydwoq Minimal:

There’s not much to the Minimal, but what there is packs a maximal punch of style! The 1.75″ resin heel takes an everyday comfortable sandal and makes it flirtier and dressier, without sacrificing one iota of ease!

The Argila Rosa also walks with class from a day in the office out the door to a cocktail party in the garden:

The easy-to-wear 1.5″ heel adds the perfect lift to the classic t-strap design, which wins hearts with its modern mix of leathers.

Another contemporary take on a timeless style is Chie Mihara’s Temoti, which makes penny-loafer details modern in the prettiest way:

So dang cute! We are gaga over the natural-edged pine green leather, and the 2.5″ heel gives this whimsical charmer an air of sophistication.

Since we’re in the land of Spanish designs, Pep Monjo’s Brigitta is a low-heeled contender that’s also muy bonita:

The indigo leather looks especially fresh with the ice blue lacing up top and the 2″ natural leather heel below. Airy, easy, and chic, just the way we like it!

By far, one of our favorite low heels this season is Coclico’s innovative Tyrion:

As soon as you slide your foot into this sandal, your sex appeal will rocket into the stratosphere—there’s just something about the combination of straps with the shield-like spat! The finishing touch? The Tyrion‘s 1.75″ wooden heel!

The Trippen Tough also rocks a “go bold or go home” attitude:

You’ll walk like a boss in this steely beauty, which has a saucy zipper up the back to give people behind you something to appreciate! All this sass stands on Trippen’s über-comfortable 1.75″ t-shaped rubber wedge.

Speaking of commanding style that’s hot enough to melt the pavement, Cydwoq’s Boomerang is bangin’:

The perfectly placed 1.75″ resin heel makes breaking hearts everywhere you walk so easy! Sauce it and serve it, sister!

A smidgeon of lift is all it takes to make these sandals sizzle! Low is the way to go!

(Unless, of course, you prefer to go high, in which case, stay tuned for “Sandals for sunny days” Part 3.)
