PRODUCT REVIEW: Pedro

Jewel recently added Pedro, a contemporary shoes and accessories brand from Singapore. They don’t currently have store locations in the US, so I was more than curious about their products. So, I decided to dig a little deeper into their summer collection to see what this brand is all about.

Shoes, bags and small leather accessories are the core of Pedro. The summer collection has a wide variety of shoe styles from sandals, flats, pumps, loafers and more, even moccasins! The brand also covers all the bases with handbags: this summer’s trending handbag, clutches, hobos, totes and then some. I decided to try out two heels styles and two smaller handbags.

First Impression
When my styles arrived, I was instantly impressed by the quality of the suede and faux leather. The texture was soft, but the colors were still very rich. The 2 bags were perfect for casual outings, but were still very sophisticated. The accessories also exuded femininity and style.

SLINGBACK BLOCK HEELS
Green is a wardrobe staple for me. I immediately fell in love with this slingback style when I spotted it in this emerald shade. For summer, I don’t typically think of rich, jewel tones, but it’s a gorgeous statement color to pair with the neutral shades of the season. The slingback took me some time to break in for comfort, but it remained secure the entire night I wore them, which is a major win. I’ve often passed on slingback styles for fear of them sliding down and having to spend the day or night fidgeting to keep my shoes on. Ok, I know you’ve been waiting for me to say it: that heel. The heel design is to die for! Architectural details on shoes are often what makes a statement shoe so impactful. These show-stopping details are what really makes Pedro stand apart.

OPEN TOE BLOCK HEELS
Block heels are very comfortable and this Pedro style does not disappoint. I was a little concerned initially because the heel looked to be higher than I expected once I saw it in person. But, cut to Friday, this versatile heel helped me go straight from the office to a casual happy hour with no worries. Effortlessly comfy for hours, this heel is already a go-to for me. It looks more delicate and dressier to me online, but I’ve worn it to multiple outings, dressing it up and down. Shout out for the statement heel once
again, Pedro does this so well.

BUCKLED HANDBAG
The top handle bag is a key summer trend this season. This bag is a definite step up from most everyday bags. It perfectly fits the essentials I need to run quick errands during the day but also loved out for the evening. A refined handbag to fit my phone, lipstick, mints and a few other little things I may need for a fun night out. I chose the Multi-color style, but it also comes in black, pink and a beautiful teal. The faux leather is super soft and the buckle detail is very unique. It also includes a strap, if you prefer!

CHEVRON SHOULDER BAG
I fell in love with the embossed texture of this bag instantly. It helps take the modern, architectural design to the next level. The details are plenty: pockets hidden on the inside, a phone pocket and a sleek credit card slot hidden on the back. I specifically chose this black bag for summer evenings and it works! It is the perfect accessory with dressy denim or easy, breezy summer dresses. I’m also planning an entire outfit around it for an upcoming summer wedding!
