Meet the Team: Caroline, Community Manager

2-minute read

For fun (and because you’re all so curious!), we’re rolling out profiles on the Poppy Barley staff. Last week we introduced you to our Customer Insights Specialist, Breanne. This week, meet our very talented and super-fun Community Manager, Caroline.

Caroline’s passion for new media and fashion intersect at Poppy Barley, where she’s our head writer, creative director and social media wizard. Caroline coordinates photo shoots and editorial schedules, collaborates with bloggers and media, and crafts thoughtful stories for our blog. Caroline is super personable, making her the perfect candidate to work with our entire social media community. Her daily routine includes tweeting, pinning, posting, sharing, loving, and plus-oneing.

Always in the know as a freelance style and travel writer (in addition to being our social media manager, she's also the Alberta Editor for FASHION Magazine and ran the society column at the Edmonton Journal for a year), Caroline always suggests the best places to go, eat, hangout - and of course, what to wear.

Get to know Caroline in our rapid-fire Q&A...

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.
