A card that makes you laugh: real talk, real underwear, real love. For when the infatuation is over and your relationship moves into the truly intimate zone. Congratulations.

A Pocket Flask: a just-right size flask to hold a just-right amount of your favorite booze (we vote for Herradura Reposado). We've got this one in various candy-coated shades, from blush to navy.

Favor Hairpin

A delicate hairpin and/or bracelet: in organic-meets-architechtural shapes, these are the perfect gifts to wish-list when you want something that goes with everything, every day.

Classic Sneakers: cool (Superga sneakers) meets cute (blushing nude pink with gold eyelets). An unexpected gift for an unconventional sweetheart.

Jewelry will always be the classic Valentines gift. Point them in the right direction with the understated elegance of Parisian designer Trois Petit Points. Hanging from a delicate chain, these necklaces are feminine and modern (check out that locket! So romantic).

Lust-worthy backpack from Elk Accessories: made from incredibly soft leather, this backpack weds form to function in the sleekest way.  The straps are easily adjusted, transforming it into a cross-body bag. Large enough to fit a 15 inch laptop and available in tan, blue or black- this bag is sure to please. 

New Year, Deep Breath

Congratulations, you made it! 2018 has been with us for a scant 3 weeks, and maybe you're craving a deep breath and a shift towards new habits and priorities. Perhaps that means a style edit, paring back your wardrobe and giving thought to what you want to wear, how you want to feel, or brands you want to support. This may be the year you edit your accessories and invest in shoes that look good and feel good, no compromises. We've got you covered. Both our PedX and PedX North locations have timeless brands and enduring styles in stock to help you fill any gaps in your shoe closet. For instance:

Dorsey Flat in Black by Osborn

Dorsey

 

These chic, minimalist flats give us Tilda Swinton vibes (the best kind). Osborn makes all their shoes by hand in Guatemala using locally sourced leather. Their ethos focuses on small-scale production, reducing waste, and creating on a core group of perennial styles. Osborn doesn't offer a ton of choices, just the right ones. 

Madeline Loafers in Black and Grey by Fortress of Inca

Madelines

Known hereabouts as the "magic shoe". The Madeline is a perfect loafer-ankle boot compromise that looks good with skirts and pants of all lengths (we've tested!). The slight heel turns your walk into a strut. Office appropriate and smart-casual-approved. Fortress of Inca's operations are based in Peru where they employ local communities who have generations of shoe-making experience with a thriving (not just a living) wage. 

 

Superga Cotu Classics in Grey and Buttercup at PedX on Alberta Street. Also at PedX North in Black, White, Vintage Blue, and Red.

Supergas in Vintage Blue

 

Supergas are known as "the people's shoe of Italy". If you want to refresh your sneaker collection this year, these are a classic option. The youthful style is very flattering on, plus they feel great. The footbed is supportive and the canvas is sturdy enough to wear through the chilly days of early spring with a little sock. If you're tired of wearing through your canvas sneakers quickly, give this durable, timeless style a try. 

Local Spotlight

Want something special for the lovelies in your life? Give her a gift made right here in Portland. Today we are featuring the designs of local jewelry artist Kiersten Crowley. She makes elegant, modern, staple pieces out of her impeccably decorated home in PDX. Our customers love her pieces not only because of their beauty but also because choosing to buy a Kirsten Crowley piece means supporting a woman and her dreams.
