Poppy Barley Weekly 03

Whew, this week went flying by. It’s now 5:30pm. Never start anything at 5pm on Fridays.

What we did this week:

  • On Monday, Tiffany Mitchell from Offbeat + Inspired visited the Poppy Barley office with #YEGWEEKEND to be measured for boots (FYI - she picked The Promenade Boot in Kaki!). Flying in from Lexington, KY, for a weekend adventure in Edmonton, Tiffany is a stylist, foodie, photographer and blogger and... I want my Instagram account to look like hers. Can't wait to share more with you about our meeting.
  • Our first limited edition collection leather, Sunrise Confetti, SOLD OUT! Now: the countdown for Green With Envy gets real.
  • We launched our second limited edition collection featuring a Blue Jean Baby Classic Ankle Bootie, Blue Jean Baby Feminine Slipper and Rodeo Darling Promenade Boot (our first block heel boot style!). Both leathers have a beautiful, velvet (almost suede-like) finish (although the Blue Jean Baby was the most popular style at our Design Events in Calgary and Edmonton).
  • The Calgary Stampede is a big deal in our Canadian province, so we’re getting in on the action with our friends at ATB Financial with the ATBxPBFashionRoundup Pinterest contest to win $500 in custom shoes from Poppy Barley. Now, get pinning!
  • Wearing our Feminine Slippers in Rose Pink, Vancouver-based fashion blogger Alexandra from To Vogue or Bust speaks truthfully about slowing down and taking a moment to appreciate your successes. I think we could all use a little bit of that.
  • Holly, the talent behind In the Fun Lane includes us in her Like, Want, Need! post this week. Thank you!
It’s Father’s Day this weekend. Typically, Father’s Day is celebrated by recognizing all the great advice our dads shared with us. This year, we’re flipping that upside down. We’re a pretty smart bunch at Poppy Barley, so here are some words of wisdom for our dads:
  • In the words of Oprah, "When your kids get older, you have to become a consultant, rather than a manager." :)
  • You don't have to sign your name after every text you send - I know it's you!
  • Age does not protect your head. Please wear a helmet while riding your bike, skiing and rock climbing.
  • Retiring is a good plan provided you have hobbies to occupy your days.
  • Go to yoga. Every week.
  • No one likes being on speaker phone.
  • Just like the computer, this whole "cell phone thing" isn't just a phase and it isn't going away... sorry, Dad!
  • Enjoy your retired years - stay up late, travel, and wine and dine even more than you did in your twenties - you can sleep in now and don't have to worry about your kid's College Fund/RESP. Bonus!
Happy weekend-ing!
