Poppy Barley Weekly 15

3-minute read

Poppy Barley Weekly 15 Happy Friday! It was a short week after Labour Day, but it felt jam-packed, which means it must be September! We are so excited to be moving into Fall... Before we re-cap the week, a photo credit, top right: thanks to our ambassador, Rachel, for sharing this gorgeous photo of The Classic Ankle Bootie and The Chelsea Boot! (Just a reminder: Rachel, a physiotherapist, gave our boots and flats her stamp of approval in this blog post!) We are crazy about ankle boots right now; it's the perfect footwear to transition into a new season. Here's what happened this week:
  • We're popping up at Workhall Boutique during the Edmonton City Market next Saturday, Sept. 13th, from 9am to 6pm! Secure your measuring appointment by booking here, and RSVP on Facebook. Walk-ins welcome!
  • We're planning a popup in Vancouver! Sign up to be notified and save the date: Sept. 19-21st. And make sure to update your PB Insider profile with your location.
  • FLARE Magazine shared Poppy Barley's feature story from the September issue on their website.
  • Justine returned from a product development trip at our studio in León. We loved sneak peeking some more samples from our Men's Collection (pictured above), and seeing all the familiar faces pop up on Instagram (pictured below). Sign up to the waiting list if you'd like to be notified about the release of our men's line.
  • We did a photo shoot with Janis Galloway from Dress Me Dearly in preparation for our collaboration with BLOOM on October 4th. We'll be celebrating female entrepreneurs in Edmonton and defining our vision. More on that soon!
  • We shared Justine's full presentation on Designing Your Creative Business from the PARK Edmonton Artist & Designer Forum. Hopefully you find some golden nuggets in there!
  • We received some pretty + pretty delicious treats from Global's Carole Anne. In case you didn't know, our favourite treats are couture chocolates from JACEK. OMG, are they good.
  • MAJOR: We're launching our next Limited Edition Collection next week (which includes the Midnight Confetti Feminine Slipper!). Our current Limited Edition Collections are still on sale.
  • Instead of holding out until Friday, join us on Instagram for a play-by-play!

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.
