so much good!

We’ve been missing-in-action on the blog scene since last August (almost a year now). This year has been a whirlwind with so many *good* changes and we are so excited for the year ahead.

Here are some highlights…

This year we published our very first peper & parlor lookbook – it was so much fun! Be sure to keep your eye out for our next big project.

Late last summer we went on our first ever “team-building” retreat to Puerto Rico! We had such an amazing time at the Caribe Hilton, strolling down the streets of Old San Juan, and checking out the local scene at Piñones beach. Anne a.k.a. “big sexy” even got a free surf lesson, haaa! We also had a chance to meet some of Yomaira’s family in the mountains of Caguas, P.R. We can’t wait for the next trip.

We’ve also welcomed some really awesome new lines by independent designers. You’ll see dedicated blog posts to those in the future. One of the sneaky best-selling line is Upper Metal Class – handmade minimalist jewelry on the west coast by artist T. Screen shot 2014-06-22 at 1.35.43 PMWe also have a new staff member in the ranks! The peper and parlor newbie is Ashley. After a few post-grad years on the island of St. John she’s back on the continental U.S. and honing her retail and event planning skills. You’ll see her at the shop on weekends and some weekdays.Screen shot 2014-06-22 at 1.50.30 PM

Our e-commerce site is chock-full of the best pieces in the shop. Our former staffer-turned-photo editor at Conde Nast, Brenda continues to blow us away with her photography and endless creativity.

peper girls



what’s in her bag? peper girls reveal! (take it with typos…learning photoshop!:) )

So our darling Adriana (yes! Adriana is back!) suggested a fab idea for our readers! Since we are always interested in each other’s  varied accouterments, we thought it would be cool to share what’s in our bags.

We all jumped at the chance to “spill the beans”…

Adriana’s Beracamy Paris satchel:

 highlights: the bubble yum gum is a childhood throwback! plus, we love the preppy train satchel by beracamy, it has four compartments so its perfect to house all the “necessities” of the everyday chaos

Yomaira’s Clare Vivier crossbody:

highlights:  the Yarnz cashmere scarf (keeps this caribbean girl extra warm in the almost chilly weather), the marc jacobs shades are a staple at peper…by the way,  i love all things Clare Vivier?

Brenda’s sparkling Monserat De Lucca tote:

highlights: the linea pelle zip wallet (always in stock at peper), brenda’s gorgeous yarnz tapestry scarf, and the adorable cloth covered hairpins from montreal’s carolina villamarin (a peper exclusive)!

Anne’s 49 Square Miles carryall: 

highlights: the flashlight & hoboken parking ticket …just kidding! we love Anne’s gorgeous earrings from a peace treaty and she swears by the single strap 49 square miles super supple leather bag (an easy pick for a mom on the go)!
