Poppy Barley Weekly 41

3-minute read

Poppy Barley x Alyssa Lau - Snakeskin Print Shoes Can you feel it? Spring is just around the corner. The light is changing (don't forget to turn your clocks forward one hour this Sunday!), and so is our product line-up. Here's what's happening at PB:
  • We launched Limited Edition Collection 06 - six new shoes in Snakeskin and Black leather. This collection is bold and confident, and inspired by powerhouse women working in the business of fashion and design. We enlisted the creative talents of one such woman, Alyssa Lau, to shoot the collection for us. Find out more about her here.
  • VanMag featured the new collection in their Shopgirl column.
  • We had a super-successful Open House on Saturday and sold out of Midnight Confetti leather! Stay tuned to our Events page to find out when the next event is (we've got some great ones in the works!) or, book an appointment for a Tuesday or Thursday in Edmonton, or Wednesday thru Saturday in Toronto.
  • We've been nominated for a YEGGIE in the Business category! The YEGGIE's are social media awards for Edmonton-based individuals, organizations and businesses. Tickets for the awards night go on sale at the end of March!
  • Did you know that our Jasper Derbys are half calf leather, half deer leather? Deer leather is often used to make slippers. Maybe Hef is onto something.
Poppy Barley chats with Alyssa Lau, wearing her Classic Point flats in Snakeskin Dates to remember:
  • I'm presenting on Building a Social Brand at the iMedia conference in one week's time, Saturday, March 14th. Get your tickets here.
  • St. Patrick's Day. Monica and I (we're sisters, for those who didn't know!) come from a very Irish family and always celebrate. We'll be making a day of it with Team PB, because there's sure to be an Irish pub in our new neighbourhood somewhere!
  • The Poppy Barley team will also be working out all day at Bust a Move Edmonton on March 21st to raise money for breast cancer research at the Cross Cancer Institute! Kendall and Justine filmed a segment with BaM this morning (see below!). You can support us, meet MammoGran + donate here.
  • If you’re the founder of an Alberta-based startup company, apply to participate at the Roundtable Sessions on April 28th. Poppy Barley is a proud partner of AccelerateAB – having attended, pitched and participated in the roundtables in previous years.
Poppy Barley x Bust a Move Edmonton What we're reading: Happy weekend!

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.
