3 Awesome Things at Tessa Clogs!

First Awesome Thing: Glogg

    It was great celebrating this Christmas making turns on the fresh snow, in Blue Sky on Vail Mountain. The sky was bluebird in the morning and quickly turned into a flurry by the evening, leaving new deep powder for the next day. It was nice coming off the mountain and enjoying a nice warm cup of mulled wine. I had never tried Glogg before, and thought it would compliment the menu for my holiday party. We added some red wine, let simmer, then added some brandy, this simple and delicious mixture was a hit. Glogg is now my staple for cold weather dinners, and my go-to on these cold, snowy evenings.
Second Awesome Thing: Custom Jewelry
    Tessa recently dropped off some more items to add to the collection of hand stamped charms. I have been working on getting different combinations online, as well as individual charms to personalize your own jewelry. The hand stamped charms are created in Minturn, CO - the same spot that Tessa customizes her unique clogs. The ability to choose your own charms, made this a thoughtful and popular gift this holiday.
Third Awesome Thing: Sale Items
    We have just updated our inventory of sale items. Check out new markdowns from clothing brands, including Desigual, Van Deurs, and Asha. Clogs on sale include the popular Extreme High Red Lily Sandal and the High Heel Natural Cow.

Gift Ideas at Swedish Clog Cabin- God Jul

We have just recieved a shipment of Swedish goods, just in time for the holidays! If you have never tried some of the treats in the store, you can also order them online. My favorite, Ballerina Cookies, are white and chocolate cookies, with hazelnut cream inside. Also, enjoy a warm glass of Glogg, a mixture of spices to add your favorite libation.Here are some gift ideas from the Swedish Clog Cabin.
Tomte, Dala Horse Cookie Cutter, Swedish Book, Glogg
     After recently moving, I decided to give myself a few things to make my home more välkommen. Eklund Linens, Dala Horse cookie cutters, traditional ornaments, and bearded Tomte figures add a warm touch. As stocking stuffers for my roommates, I am going to customize a charm bracelet, the charms are hand-stamped by Tessa in Minturn, Co.  Last year I gave my mom clogs, this year I will send her some new snap straps, a custom Dala Horse, and of course chocolate! Some Knee High Wool socks will keep me warm, and pair well with the Traditional Heel Stapled Clogs.

Celeb Favorite, Ultimate High Clogs, New Arrivals at Tessa Clogs

In my previous blog, Celebrities Wearing Clogs, you can see celebs wearing high heeled clogs. At Tessa clogs, she has worked to expand her Ultimate High clog collection, similar to the celeb favorites. The wood chosen for the sole was reconsidered for a more strong durable one.  She has added staples, similar to the clogs worn by models on the runway. Also, added to the Ultimate High collection, more colors and textures!

In my post, New Clog Member, I explain to you why I adore the Ultimate High Clog, and the story of my first pair. In addition to my powder blue Tessa Clogs, last winter I purchased a pair of Black Oil Ultimate High. With the first sign of sun, I broke out my new clogs and paired them with tights and a cream dress. For more inspiration, check out, How Do You Wear Your Clogs? It gives you a few ideas of how to get the most out of your clogs this season.

New Designs by Tessa at Tessa Clogs

When I met with Tessa to discuss what she was working on, she was eager to mention the fabric that she had bought. She described the different patterns and suggested how each one can compliment the other. I could tell the joy that Tessa was expressing would transfer into her skirts, known as Tessa Happy Skirts. This versatile skirt can be worn after a session at the gym, a class at the studio, or even at après; worn as something to throw over your base layer.Each skirt is unique and can vary slightly in length. The hem is set at a modest point, and the fabric choice compliments any body type.

Tessa’s Happy Skirt, is just one of the many distinctive items in the Swedish Clog Cabin. From the hand painted clogs, the straps, and Tessa clothing, Tessa’s talent shows through her many products. What I love about Tessa's designs is the personal touches of each item. In Tessa Hand Me Downs, each patch that is cut and then hand embroidered onto clothing. Just like the jeans, Tessa Hand Me Downs shirts, have the hand cut letters and patterns. Stay tuned to see the latest designs by Tessa.
