Breanne, Customer Insights, Meet the Team, Poppy Barley

It's time to get to know the team! We'll be rolling out profiles on the Poppy Barley staff over the next few weeks, and it only makes sense to start with our Customer Insights Associate, Breanne, as you've likely been interacting with her already. Leading our Concierge and Customer Service department, Breanne is the one to answer all your questions on measurement and design, and the first to receive and process your orders. A recent B.Comm graduate from the University of Alberta, Breanne has a serious history with shoes: her first two jobs ever were with the Aldo Group at Transit (now Spring) and Sterling. FYI: Her favourite colour is pink. Read our short Q&A with Breanne after the jump, and if you want to set up an appointment to get measured and view our flats and boots in person, contact Breanne at concierge@poppybarley.com.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
