Meet the Team: Danielle, Customer Care Intern

2-minute read

Meet the Team: Danielle, Customer Care Intern at Poppy Barley. Poppy Barley offers custom, all leather mens and womens boots and shoes, sizes 5-15. Swamped with measurement appointments, measuring tape requests, and new orders, we put a call for out for a Customer Care intern in late October to assist Breanne with the (welcomed, of course!) overload. We had lots of applicants. We held a dozen interviews. The stand-out candidate: Danielle, a Grant MacEwan student taking her Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Management. Curious about how the interview went down? We fell for Danielle's personality right away. Contagious enthusiasm, a fierce work ethic, and an awesome attention to detail are all qualities necessary to ensure the measurements she takes for our eager customers are accurate and trusted. While it seems too good to be true, her personality is not the only reason we felt she was a perfect match for Poppy Barley; her ideals and beliefs in social entrepreneurship also align with ours. She made it clear during her interview that she is passionate about companies with strong brand recognition that in return create awareness of neglected areas of the world and challenge business practices to be more ethically and globally minded. (See? Perfect.) To find out more about the newest addition to the Poppy Barley team, read our rapid-fire Q&A with Danielle below... Name: Danielle Nickname: Dans Job title: Poppy Barley's Customer Care Intern My typical day at the office: My typical day at the office involves measuring the feet of our lovely customers and helping them pick out the colours and style of their perfect pair of boots and/or flats. I also put together measuring kits, gift card boxes, and update inventory. Fit Issue: I always need a zipper in order for the boots to fit over my calves. No zipper, no luck. Favourite Poppy Barley boot style right now: The Downtown Boot in Chocolate Brown. Favourite online hangout spot: Facebook Fashion piece I never leave home without: A good jacket. Preferably with faux fur. Item I never leave home without: The iPhone Indulgence: Famoso pizza Favourite quote: “Be daring, be different, be impractical; be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers.” ― Cecil Beaton Wanderlusting after: New York Favourite city to visit: Vancouver. So beautiful! I have a weakness for: Chilli Chocolate Fun fact: I went bungee jumping in Bali when I was 18. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be: NYC and Vancouver. When it’s time to unwind: Wine and a window. Favourite App: Snapchat- always good for a laugh.

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.
